Your new favourite skin-friendly bamboo pillowcase
Waking up with smoother skin and silkier hair might seem like a dream, but you can actually fight acne, ageing sleep lines and hair frizz with your eyes closed. Easily get your beauty sleep in, not with fancy creams or expensive serums, but rather with the right pillowcase. And by the ‘right’, we mean a pillowcase that is made of fabric that's super soft and won’t dry out your skin and hair. Enter Nightire’s pillowcases made of 100% organic bamboo - a fabric that is as soft as silk but much kinder to the environment (read: grows sustainably and is vegan). It’s perfect for your mates missing out on anti-wrinkle pillows in the name of animal rights.
Evening (i.e. bedtime) is the best time to repair skin, after a long day of your lovely face being exposed to pollutants, the sun and blue light. However, you can wreak further skin havoc if you sleep on fabric that saps the moisture from your skin and creams – like cotton – and worsens sleep creases due to the folds that form on your pillowcase. This moisture loss, compounded by night after night of collagen-weakening sleep lines, is bad news for your complexion, as it depletes skin elasticity which could cause the lines to form permanently over time.
The solution? Simplify your skincare regime by making one easy, and inexpensive switch – get your hands on a set of Nightire’s bamboo pillowcases. Bamboo is the softest fabric you will ever lay your head on. It’s anti-microbial and hypoallergenic, as well as thermo-regulating, which means it’ll keep your head cool in summer and warm in winter. It’s also sweat-wicking, smoother than cotton, and wrinkle-resistant. The trifecta for sleek, plump skin and hair come morning.
We spend one third of our day asleep (if you should be so lucky), so why not make the most of it?
