Silk Pillowcases

Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hair dressers and beauty therapists all recommend sleeping on pure silk pillow cases. And it’s a secret of many celebrities (Nigella Lawson swears by her silk pillowcase – “good for the skin.”)

Why?

  • Research by the American Association of Dermatology has shown that when you sleep, friction develops between your face and the pillowcase. This contributes to fine lines and wrinkles forming on your forehead, cheeks, eyes and chin. You can imagine that after years of sleeping this way (and let’s not forget that we spend a third of our lives in bed!), the greater the probability that those sleep related fine lines and wrinkles become permanent

    So it is important to use the right pillowcase – because even 100% cotton or cotton and polyester mix or synthetic pillowcases are all contributing to the signs of premature stretching and sleep-crease or aging.

  • High quality silk has a natural cooling effect, which reduces sweating and helps your skin to retain its moisture. One benefit is the elimination of hot and sweaty pillows –but another much more important benefit is the appearance of radiant looking skin.

    This is because as we age our skin loses its natural ability to retain moisture. The collagen structure breaks down, resulting in thinner skin which becomes much more prone to wrinkles. And this lack of moisture results in drier skin seen as we age.

    Another really important benefit to your skin is that your night time cream remains on your skin – so it can work for you. Other types of pillowcases (such as cotton or linen) actually absorb your night cream – so it is actually working against your skin care routine. Any benefit from your night cream is then lost. 

  • The high quality silk, used in the Meili & Grace anti-aging pillowcase, naturally contains 18 silk amino acids or building blocks of the body.

    Amino acids are small molecules that make up proteins, which are critical to the health and repair of our body’s cells and tissues, to our immune system and to our muscles. The amino acids in high quality silk also have antioxidant properties which help combat the visible signs of aging.

    These 18 amino acids are readily absorbed through your skin and both protect and nourish your skin as you sleep.

  • It is hypoallergenic and may help ease conditions like eczema (or atopic dermatitis), asthma, sensitive skin, allergic rash, shingles, psoriasis, post-chemotherapy sensitive skin and physiological skin flora.

  • It reduces hair breakage and split ends. And it even reduces hair tangles because your ordinary pillow twists and pulls on your hair which can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthier hair (and that is not even mentioning the messy morning hair!). Healthy, glossy hair makes your morning routine much easier and extends the time between salon visits. It is also great for people with hair extensions, curly hair, fragile hair or anyone who just wants to maintain the health and integrity of their hair.

"My under eye wrinkles have definitely become less noticeable"

"It's like a therapeutic treatment for your face every night"
Dr. Jenna Lemon, Pasadena, California

"Persistently pressing our faces into a pillow causes trauma to the skin. Over time, this trauma aggravated by the friction of a cotton pillowcase can create permanent creases as our collagen breaks down."
Dr. Dennis Gross, Dermatologist.
