* Prevent facial wrinkles from forming in your sleep
* Keep blowouts looking fresh for days
* 5 alternatives for affordable beauty sleep
Sleeping on silk pillowcases is one of the latest trends in beauty – and for good reason. They’re great for both your skin and hair as they help prevent wrinkles and bedhead. Silk fibers are significantly less absorbent than other fibers, so they help expensive skin care products stay on your face and off your pillow. Silk also helps reduce friction on your face resulting in a smooth surface that helps skin to glide along the pillow, thereby preventing lines and wrinkles from forming.
One of the most well-known versions is the Slip for beauty sleep pure silk pillowcase. While this is a great silk pillowcase, it also comes with a hefty price tag.
We’ve found a few great alternatives to the Slip that feature all of the benefits as the original from a fraction of the price, so you can get your beauty sleep even on a budget.

This pillowcase by Zimasilk is made from the highest quality Mulberry Silk, designed with a hidden zip closure. Made from both organic and natural silk, this pillowcase has exquisite craftsmanship, neat stitches and comes in 14 different color options that will compliment any home decor style.
2. Celestial Silk Pillowcase
