There’s nothing better than a good night’s sleep. It’s simple, but it does wonders for your health, wellbeing, skin and mood. So why not enhance your beauty sleep with a super-luxe silk pillowcase? We’ve all been obsessed with the Gingerlily Pillowcase, £59; read on to find out why it’s a game-changer…
Getting that extra wink of sleep each night can be tricky with the busy lifestyles that we, and many of our clients, lead. Whether you’re a CEO or a full-time parent, having the recommended eight hours of sleep for your body to fully rest and recover can be tricky. As much as we get asked for our best hair tips for a glossy and healthy head, the one beauty tip that applies to absolutely everything is to make sure you’re getting some much needed shut-eye.
We can’t live without the Gingerlily Silk Pillowcase that’s made of 100% premium Mulberry silk. It’s not just a chic luxury bedtime accessory, but also a skin and hair saviour too. The light and comfortable pillowcase is like an 8 hour beauty treatment each night, and feels like a dream to sleep on. Silk fibres are much less absorbent than other materials such as cotton and help to maintain your skin’s moisture levels, and the delicate material reduces tugging or stretching on the skin to prevent wrinkles and fine lines (and you can say goodbye to those embarrassing pillow creases that are still showing on your morning commute…).
It also works wonders for your hair – if you’re prone to breakage, have thinning, fine or dull hair, a silk pillowcase is a great addition to your bedtime regime. It reduces friction on the hair, unlike other pillowcases that can cause hair to pull and tangle throughout the night. And if you’ve had a fresh blow dry that day, you can be sure that you’ll still wake up with perfectly glossy, luscious locks.
TOP TIP: Match your silk pillowcase with the Gingerlily Eye Mask, £35, for the ultimate pairing that brings a whole new definition to beauty sleep. Incredibly kind to your skin and silky soft, the eye mask protects your eye area from rubbing and friction, preventing fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. Plus, it covers the entire eye and brow area to block out the early morning sunshine so you get that extra five minutes in bed…
