In this blog post, we’ll take a good look at this question: Are silk pillowcases good for you?
We all want to be in good health. The older we get, the more that good health becomes a focus and even a priority. There’s a lot of information easily available about what foods are good for us and what vitamins are good for us. We all know that exercise is good for us. There are lots of good ideas online, provided by professionals and experts, on how to exercise no matter one’s abilities or limitations. We also know that sleep is good for us. One of the ways to preserve good health and prevent pain and illness includes sleeping deeply every night. So, are silk pillowcases good for you?
Well, turning screens off at least 30 minutes before bedtime is an important part of sleep preparation. It’s the same for your sleep environment! Some people need to by cozy. Some people need to be cool. Everyone needs to be comfortable. Silk pillowcases are good for you because they can keep you more comfortable.
If your pillowcase is made out of real, pure silk, it’s a natural fabric. Natural fabrics like silk and pure bamboo keep us more comfortable than fabrics like microfiber. Sure, microfiber feels nice to the touch but it’s actually polyester! Polyester doesn’t keep you comfortable because it doesn’t breathe. Therefore, you sleep hot. Conversely, the soft, smooth surface of real silk feels comforting and cooling to your face.
Further, real, pure silk pillowcases are good for you as you sleep — especially if they have a real, pure bamboo backside to anchor your pillow. Your sleep is more restful so you can sleep more deeply.
Maximizing your comfort at bedtime is a major key to getting the best possible sleep. And sleep is essential to good health.
