"Not getting enough beauty sleep is one of the greatest stresses to the skin, resulting in deepening lines and wrinkles. Sleeping on our backs is actually the best position to help preserve a youthful-looking complexion, however if you cannot sleep on your back, cover your pillow with a silk pillowcase which will minimize friction. The skin will slide more easily over silk than cotton. SLIP silk pillowcase is my household staple as it’s the perfect combination of shine, thickness and softness while allowing skin to breathe. It does not tug on the delicate skin, or result in sleep creases."
Dr. Dennis Gross, NYC-based dermatologist and founder of Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare
“Sleeping on a Slipsilk Pillowcase allows your skin to glide across the pillow as you sleep and prevents sleep creases, which can lead to permanent wrinkles. The silk fiber slides rather than pulling against the face and absorbing your night creams, like traditional cotton pillowcases. Not only am I personally a huge fan of sleeping on Slip, but I am constantly retrieving my stolen pillows from my kids’ rooms as they love the cool, ultra-silky finish on their skin when they sleep!”

“YOU CAN AVOID WAKING UP WITH BED HEAD BY SLEEPING ON SILK PILLOWCASES, COTTON CAUSES MORE FRICTION AND DISRUPTS THE HAIR CUTICLES.”
Charles Worthington (Leading London Hairdresser)
Dr. Sobel (New York Magazine's top dermatologist five years in a row) give this anti-wrinkle advice . . . "Long the secret of film divas, silk pillowcases prevent facial skin from creasing during the night. Silk allows the skin to glide along the pillow so the face rests comfortably without placing pressure on creased skin, effectively 'ironing in' wrinkles".
“PERSISTENTLY PRESSING OUR FACES INTO A PILLOW CAUSES TRAUMA TO THE SKIN. OVER TIME, THIS TRAUMA, AGGRAVATED BY THE FRICTION OF A COTTON PILLOWCASE, CAN CREATE PERMANENT CREASES AS OUR COLLAGEN BREAKS DOWN.”
Dr Dennis Gross (dermatologist)
“I ALWAYS SLEEP ON SILK SO THAT MY SKIN GLIDES RATHER THAN DRAGS ACROSS THE FABRIC, REDUCING THE CHANCES OF WRINKLES – PARTICULARLY THOSE IN THE NASAL LABIAL FOLD BETWEEN MOUTH AND NOSE”
Angelica Kavouni – Harley Street Plastic Surgeon Sunday Mail
Stylist Ellin LaVar (InStyle) says that whether your hair is straight or curly, high quality silk pillowcases reduce friction, so your trip to the hairdresser lasts longer. Silk keeps straight hair straighter and blow-dries last longer.
“PEOPLE ARE VERY RARELY ALLERGIC TO SILK. This is because silk is free of any potentially irritating added chemicals and contains natural substances that ward off various environmental allergens (and resulting skin conditions), including dust mites, mold, and fungus."
