Silk pillowcases have been linked to anti-aging properties over last many decades, in fact from time immemorial. That is why the most beautiful queens and princesses always slept on silk pillowcases. Silk acts as a moisture barrier against the skin and thus hydrates the skin naturally. Dry skin always ages early. And silk is a natural way to keep moisture intact. Cotton pillowcases often dry up your skin causing premature aging of the skin. A silk pillowcase also doesn't tear out hair and retains moisture. It apparently acts as a hypoallergenic temperature regulator for skin and hair.

Applying repeated pressure on your face, by sleeping on a cotton pillowcase, will promote the breakdown of collagen, which eventually leads to visible lines.

Silk pillowcases also ensure your face looks less puffy. And the lack of abrasion reduces skin's redness and softens it. So, a silk pillowcase is an absolute must have for any woman.
