Cool in the summer, warm in the winter, naturally hypoallergenic, and smooth – silk pyjamas have been a staple among women’s night routines but has recently become more in demand. Not only because of the comfort has it brought but also because of the excellent benefits of wearing silk pyjamas.
If you haven’t yet experienced the luxury of wearing silk pyjamas, then you are missing out a lot on your sleeping routine! And we are not just talking about how it makes you feel, there is SO much more to silk pyjamas than you might realize.
From being a gentle fabric that hugs you a good night to its coziness, here are some of the benefits of silk pyjamas.
Its natural cooling effect alleviates hot flashes.Fluctuating hormones, especially for women, can cause sudden and irritating hot flashes. Sleeping in breathable and lightweight silk pyjamas can help turn these hot flashes down. This particular benefit doesn’t just apply to women who have hot flashes, the temperate regulating properties found in silk pyjamas are for everyone to enjoy, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. Silk is a natural thermal regulator and maintains the body temperature all night long. When it is cold, thanks to the air captured between the silk threads, the heat is kept inside creating an isolation effect.
Can silk prevent ageing? Believe it or not, the answer is yes! How, you ask? Well, when your skin is against silk for the period you are sleeping, there is no friction between your skin and the surface, therefore your skin is not wrinkled up against a tougher fabric such as cotton. Studies have shown that the friction caused by tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, however, if your skin is against a silk surface, this can reduce wrinkles in the long run.
Silk pyjamas will keep your skin more hydrated.
Great for body acne…..also known as backne. Got a few breakouts on your body? Silk pyjamas can help! Silk possesses anti-bacterial properties that could help lessen pimples and acne. Silk is a natural fibre that does not clog pores, while we don’t suggest that it will be your ultimate solution, it will help. We do recommend it as part of your skincare routine.
Silk pyjamas are hypoallergenic.Silk pajamas have those natural substances from silkworm cocoons that repel common allergens like dust mites, molds, and mildew.
Silk pyjamas can promote a better quality of sleep. Research conducted by the National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health shows that 30 to 40 percent of Americans have problems sleeping. One of the leading reasons is being uncomfortable. Silk’s natural, lightweight, and breathable fabric feels like a warm hug that puts you to a good night’s sleep.
Silk is smooth, safe, and natural.Unlike synthetic fabrics that can irritate your skin with their material and chemicals, silk is made from nature, making it a very relaxing fabric to sleep in. Silk is also fire-retardant, which makes it a safe sleepwear choice.
Talk about beauty sleep! Silk pyjamas are indeed one of the best choices in sleepwear for their comfort and skin benefits. So if you aren’t sleeping on silk pyjamas yet, it must be your sign to get more glowing skin as you sleep.
