As for skincare, silk is far less absorbent than more popular bedding, like cotton, which means that oh-so-expensive skincare products will spend the night seeping into the skin, rather than transferring to the pillow.
For those who fight frizz or simply prefer to steer clear of dry tresses come winter, a silk pillowcase is a worthwhile investment. Thanks to the silk's smooth surface, hair isn't pulled throughout sleep and the lack of friction leaves strands and hair cuticles smooth, bidding adieu to damage and frizz.
