We’ve heard beauty experts rave for years about the benefits of sleeping on a silk or “silk-like” pillowcase, and we absolutely get it! Have you ever slept on a silk pillowcase before? They’re comfortable, soft, chic, and allow you to sleep cooler (which is magical for those of us who heat up while we’re sleeping). But do you know why silk pillowcases are so effective from a beauty standpoint? Well, according to experts, the benefits of sleeping on a silk pillow include better hair quality, the reduction of acne and improvement on the condition of the skin, and overall comfort leading to a better night’s sleep.

So, let’s dive a little deeper into these benefits of sleeping with a silk pillowcase.
