Sleeping On Silk | Shhh Silk
You spend over 20 years of your life sleeping… so you may as well do it in style.
Shhh Silk pillowcases are not only stylish – inspired by the chic monotone interiors of Manhattan apartments – they also should be an integral part of your beauty routine. While a cotton pillowcase draws moisture from your skin overnight, silk keeps your skin hydrated meaning that evening cream you applied the night before has much more of a chance to sink right in to your face (instead of the pillow).
A silk pillowcase will also reduce the friction you’ll find your hair has with cotton, so say goodbye to frizzy morning hair and breakage. If you’re someone who likes to keep the curls in your hair for a few days or if you want to prolong a blow-dry, a silk pillowcase will help dramatically.
This is honestly one of the best things that has made its way into my life this year. Designed and produced in Melbourne, I couldn’t say no to this Aussie label. The founder Olivia Christie left her job to pursue her dream and I can relate to her 100%, and only wish to support her all the way. Shhh Silk is also working with the charity Adopt A Family this Christmas by adopting 10 families in need and supplying hampers full of toys, clothes, food and more using funds raised from your purchases on the Shhh Silk website.
You really don’t realise how much of a difference sleeping on a silk pillowcase makes until you actually try it. Healthy, hydrated skin, luscious long locks, a decent 8 hours sleep and helping out families this Christmas? Sounds perfect.
