Five Reasons Why You Need A Silk Pillowcase

There’s nothing quite like a good night’s sleep—the kind that runs long and deep, leaving you completely refreshed when you wake up in the morning. If you can’t remember that last time you slept so soundly, though, it’s probably time you reassess your sleeping situation.

And in case you haven’t heard: Silk pillowcases are known for being amazing (and indulgent) sleep aids, helping you enjoy more restful slumber while providing a bevy of health and beauty benefits. At Adore, our pillowcases are delicately made using 100% Charmeuse Silk, one of the best types of silk for beddings and sleepwear.

Here, we fill you in on the wonderful benefits you can get from investing in your own silk pillowcases.

  1. It provides luxurious comfort.
    Woven using a particular method that results in a luxuriously smooth surface, Charmeuse silk features a super soft, lustrous finish that easily trumps your usual cotton pillowcase in terms of feel and appearance. Even better: Silk naturally regulates the temperature, so it always feels good to the touch, regardless if the weather’s warm, chilly, or somewhere in between.

  1. It’s hypoallergenic.
    Silk has natural anti-microbial properties, which means it doesn’t harbor bacteria or other irritants, such as dust mites, like cotton does. This feature is especially helpful for those whose sleeping patterns are interrupted by nighttime sensitivities or allergies, as well as for babies and kids with delicate skin.

  1. It minimizes friction on the skin, giving you anti-aging benefits.
    Given the fact that silk has a smoother texture than cotton or satin fabrics, there’s far less friction between your pillow and your skin, particularly on your face. This prevents creasing, preventing and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  1. It’s great for your hair. 
    The smooth surface also works wonders for your locks, minimizing frizz, tangles, split ends, and dryness. Aside from not snagging on your strands, the material doesn’t conduct static electricity, so you won’t have to worry about waking up to a messy bedhead.

  1. It doesn’t absorb moisture.
    Unlike cotton which tends to soak everything up, including your sweat, your hair’s natural oils, and your nighttime moisturizer, silk doesn’t act as a sponge, which means it won’t dry out your skin and hair. (Plus, it stays fresher longer, too!)


We spend as much as much as one-third of our lives sleeping, so it’s only apt that we make sure we get quality Zzz’s. By investing in your own silk pillowcase, you invest in much-needed rest—while boosting your overall appearance and health, too.
