Silk Pillowcases: Game Changers Or Overhyped?


April 27, 2021

While there are some wild beauty trends and hacks that fly around the internet, some genuinely helpful tips and tricks are shared across social media. Silk pillowcases are one of the tips and tricks that you should be paying attention to. 

It seems odd that a beauty tip would have to do with what you use on your bed linen, but using a particular type of pillowcase could save you a lot of money in beauty treatments, and we’re about to tell you why. 

Here is why you should start looking for a silk pillowcase as soon as you’re finished reading this article. 

For Your Skin

There is so much skincare advice going around that it’s becoming overwhelming to try and make sense of it all. Not only that, but we can damage our skin if we take advice from someone and the product ends up harming our skin. For this reason, a skincare tip that doesn’t require the use of any chemicals might be the saving grace that you need. 

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase means that there will not be as much friction on your skin. You will not wake up with those morning wrinkles, which means that your chances of developing lifetime wrinkles also significantly decrease. Silk absorbs far less moisture than a regular pillowcase, which means that your nighttime skincare products will absorb more into your skin than onto your pillow. 

It has been said that silk pillowcases can cure acne, but this is simply not true. While a silk pillowcase is better for your skin all-round, the only cure for acne is skincare that targets acne and breakouts. 

For Your Hair

Now, if there’s something that every person hates, it’s waking up in the morning with your hair standing on all ends looking frizzy and dry. There’s a way that you can stop that from happening, though, and it’s - you guessed it - a silk pillowcase! 

Silk pillowcases will eliminate most of the friction that your hair goes through throughout the evening and will allow your hair to keep all of its moisture. This means that frizz and tangles will be much less common, and your hair will always look great! 


There is a myth that silk pillowcases will stop split ends from happening, but this is unfortunately not true. You will have to deep condition and trim your hair regularly if you want to eliminate your split ends.
