If you're anything like me, you've probably not finished your Christmas shopping just yet, and that's okay. There are still a couple of weeks to go, which gives you plenty of time to pick up a couple of stocking stuffers and secret Santa gifts. The sooner the better so you can spend the rest of the holidays relaxing or partying your way through to the New Year.
Maybe you're not procrastinating, but simply just stuck on what to buy for your friends. I have the perfect present for anyone in this sitch: a silk pillowcase. In particular, the LilySilk 100% Mulberry Silk pillowcase from Amazon is my favorite. It's thoughtful, cute, and above all else, pretty inexpensive at $28. We'd obviously all love to splurge on our family and friends, but budgets are a little tighter this year.
If the thousands of reviews aren't enough to sway you, I've slept on some of the best silk pillowcases out there, and I can confirm that this one is soft to the touch and has had huge benefits on my skin, hair, and sleep. It comes in a range of colors, too, that'll suit everyone's bedroom on your list. Plus, you can get it delivered the next day with Prime if you've really left it that late.
The silk pillowcase I'm talking about
This silk pillowcase may be relatively cheap in comparison to others out there, but this lower price doesn't reflect in the quality. It's made of 100% non-toxic OEKO-TEX certified Grade 6A mulberry silk — only 5% of silk in the world meets this standard! This material effectively stops the friction between the pillowcase and your hair (or skin) and helps reduce hair loss.
What are the benefits of silk pillowcases?
As a beauty sleep advocate, I believe a silk pillowcase is essential. Prior to resting my head on one of these silky smooth surfaces, I didn't quite get the point. Sure they're cute and make a pretty little addition to your bed, but what was all the fuss about? Well, it's safe to say that I won't be going back to sleeping on a regular cotton or linen pillowcase again, and never mind polyester for that matter.
Returning to a scratchy surface is really noticeable. Why? Silk is a less abrasive fabric than others, and in turn, leadsreduces hair tangling and skin irritation. Even cotton, for example, is rougher against our skin's natural barrier. All in all, this helps your skin and hair stay healthy when you wake up. Silk is often cool touch, which is useful for getting to sleep easier.
If you think a silk pillowcase won't suit your friend, or if you'd prefer getting them something else, you can check out my Christmas shopping list for more buys for better sleep, because there's nothing better than gifting wellness.
