Sweetest Dreams: 5 Silk Pillowcases For The Best Beauty Sleep

Switching to a silk pillowcase is the best option when it comes to taking care of your hair and skin while you’re asleep.

Celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian, Victoria Beckham and Sophie Turner swear by these silky pillowcases, and hair experts can’t recommend them enough.

But the endless choices can make it difficult to choose the right silk pillowcase; as it’s an investment in both hair and skincare, this isn’t something to take lightly.

When shopping for a silk pillowcase it is important to consider the metric momme, which is equivalent to that of a thread count. They vary from 13 – 25, depending on the quality of the material. Higher the momme count, the smoother the fabric. It will also hold up much better when you wash it (something that should be done periodically, in order to avoid breakouts and dull skin.)
It’s also important to note silk pillowcases are resistant to dust, mold and allergens, and they tend to be good heat regulators for those of us who “glisten” while we sleep.

Bazaar has rounded up some of the best silk pillowcases, so you can spend more time hitting the snooze button than with your straightener in hand in the morning.
