Beauty sleep is real no matter which way you cut it, in order to look and feel our best, we simply need to catch those ZZZs. It is essential that we give our bodies enough time to reset, especially since cell renewal primarily happens at night!
Apart from sleeping with your dermaviduals nighttime skincare on to support skin rejuvenation, did you also know the secret ingredient to good skin and hair is sleeping on silk? Yes! A silk pillowcase made from 100% mulberry is one of the smartest beauty products you can invest in. A mulberry silk pillowcase provides glide which allows your skin and hair to sleep upon a soft, silky canvas. Even better, sleeping on silk helps to maintain balanced hydration levels in your skin and hair, which means smoother and more radiant skin with less tangled hair!
dermaviduals is proud to introduce you to our NEW Silk Pillowcase made from 100% mulberry that works to retain skin moisture, reduce sleep creases, cools and soothes the complexion, as well as protects against hair frizz and is hypoallergenic.
So, what exactly is mulberry silk?
Mulberry silk is derived from silkworms and is the highest quality silk available for purchase. The silkworms are fed only on mulberry leaves, and this results in the finest silk available. The silkworms spin a cocoon and these cocoons are spun into raw silk fibres in order to produce the most durable and luxurious silk ever made!
The benefits of mulberry silk include:
- 100% natural, odourless and hypoallergenic.
- Strongest of natural fibres.
- As it is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator, silk helps the body retain heat in cold weather while excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping your body maintain a comfortable, natural temperature.
- Silk is hypoallergenic; it does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellant.
- May help with skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis or eczema.
- Reduces hair breakage while sleeping (anti-static).
Unlike cotton, silk does not draw moisture away from your skin and hair. Mulberry silk has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, skin texture and smoothness, as well as promote balanced hydration and tangle free hair throughout the night!
So, what are some other reasons to make the switch to mulberry silk?
We spend a third of our lives in bed. Silk pillowcases absorb significantly less skincare than cotton pillow cases and can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Silk also provides a perfectly smooth and even sleeping surface, so that there’s no friction on your skin overnight and no unsightly sleep creases imprinted on your face in the morning! In relation to hair, even the world’s most renowned hairstylists have long recommended sleeping on gentle, hair-friendly silk to help preserve your beautiful hair follicles.
Our dermaviduals mulberry silk pillowcases have you covered as they have been trialled and tested to retain skin moisture, cool and soothe the complexion, while also being hypoallergenic for even the most sensitive skin. They are also made from “22 Momme silk.”
What is Momme?
Momme describes the silk’s weight and density. Momme is a unit of measurement, much like thread count in cotton. You can’t use thread count for silk, however, because silk fibres are much thinner in diameter to that of cotton, means that you can easily reach for a higher thread count number. Momme can range anywhere from 11 momme to 25 momme. While 11 Momme is considered lower quality and 25 Momme is much too heavy for bedding materials, 22 Momme is described as the perfect balance for silk bedding products.
Say bye, bye to messy bed hair and that wrinkly pillow face, as the dermaviduals 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase will have your skin and hair well protected throughout the night!
