Earlier this month, I was gifted with a very luxurious product from recently launched Irish brand, Lelini. The Silk Pillowcase, released in November 2016, is just the first of many pieces to come from this company, definitely ‘one to watch’ in 2017. My first impressions of the product were that it epitomizes the word ‘luxury’. From the beautiful packaging to the delicate stitching and detail throughout, it really is bedding fit for a princess to sleep on.
While the product is undoubtedly a stunning edition to any bedroom decor, you may question what advantages silk pillowcases have over standard cotton/synthetic ones. Up until now, I had no idea of the many benefits of sleeping on silk, but having explored them from a scientific aspect, I’m wondering why silk bedding is only becoming a big thing now.
Say goodbye to bed head
How fabulous would it be to wake up with the same great hair you went to bed with? Our silk pillowcases are the answer. Cotton is known to draw the moisture from your hair resulting in bed head each morning. Silk will keep your hair hydrated and protect against split ends. The added benefit of silk not conducting static electricity allows your nightly blow dry to last overnight – see you later static Einstein hair!
Crease free skin
When you sleep on the sides of your face at night, your skin folds and creates a crease in the folded area which results in you looking tired and older. Lelini silk allows your skin to slide on our pillowcases resulting in crease free facial skin every morning. Standard pillowcases scratch your delicate skin, which result in sleep creases.
Locks moisture In
Cotton holds over 20x its weight in water which takes moisture away from your skin and hair. Natural silk has the same pH as your skin which helps to keep your skin and hair hydrated each morning. This gives your face a healthy, crease free appearance every day and stops your hair drying up. Lelini founder, Fabio, recommends when you travel to not forget your Lelini silk pillowcases, so your face and hair stay hydrated.
The natural fibers of silk and its hypoallergenic properties make silk the ideal fabric for sensitive itchy skin. It reduces allergies triggered by dust mite, mold and other allergens. Lelini use only non-toxic dyes in their silk.
Sleepless nights tossing and turning will be a thing of the past.
