Why are Silk Bedding so influential?
We spend a third of our lives in bed. When we are 60, we have sleept in average about 20 years. Most of us sleep on the side and we spend 7-8 hours every night sleeping in the same position, which will eventually wrinkle our skin. In fact, more than 90% of people sleep on their side and most people find it impossible to change sleeping position and instead sleeping on your back. During the restful sleep hours, the skin produces new skin cells twice as fast as during the time we are awake. As we age, the production of collagen decreases and elastin therefore the skin becomes less resistant meaning the sleep marks (wrinkles) takes longer to disappear or even become permanent. Virtually all (99.9% of the population) sleeping on pillowcases made of cotton. The problem with cotton is that the skin can not slide on the fabric so that the fabric is continuously pressed delicate parts of the face and neck. Our silk pillowcases are made from 100% silk which gives the softness required to prevent sleep imprint folds (wrinkles). When you consider how much time and money we spend on expensive facial creams and cosmetic procedures, wrinkles could instead be remedied by something as simple as sleeping on silk.
Everyone has at some point in their life said, "I need my beauty sleep." The fact is that a good night's sleep offers all kinds of personal health and beauty benefits, from strengthening the body's immune system and relieve stress, to prevent bags and unsightly dark circles under the eyes. Silk helps us to remain young and beautiful?
Silk pillowcases are Anti-Aging
First of all, there is proven research to show that when you sleep on silk pillowcases it prevents aging. Silk contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids, which also help to counter the effects of aging.
If you have back pain or other pain you get the most amazing night's sleep when you sleep with Silk Bedding. When using silk it's possible to toss and turn in bed without waking. You may initially invest only in a draw sheet and a silk pajamas. That way you get a quiet night and do not wake up every time you turn. Better to start out small and get started sleeping in silk than not to get started.
What is the lifetime of silk bedding?
With the right care and usage, the silk bedding should last for average around 1 to 3 years. But there is a lot other elements that exist in each individual households that might affect it's life span, e.g. weight of user, tossing and turning patterns of the sleeper, frequency of wash (Try not to wash the sheets too frequently), type of water in the area, surface of the mattresses, type of mattress , dryness in the room because of heater use.....etc. Therefore outside the average, some will last for less than a year ( And yes, the fitted sheet is always the first to go while flat sheets and pillowcases will lasts for much longer)and others might last longer than 4 years...
Silk after all is a much more fragile fabric than cotton and require special care and caution when you are using them.
We wish and hope that all our customers will try to sleep with silk, once silk always silk.
