Beauty Sleep: 5 Silk Bedding Brands for Better Hair and Skin
Sweet dreams are made of these—luxurious silk bedding sheets that are not only cooling and conducive to sleep, but also beneficial for your hair and skin
Silk bedding sheets are a treat. Lightweight and breathable, the material is perfect for keeping you cool and comfortable at night. Silk is also one of the strongest natural fibres in existence—the durable fabric can last for many years if it's cared for properly.
Besides their luxe factor, silk sheets have also got great beauty benefits, too. The smooth material has a frictionless surface, which causes less static and prevents your locks from getting tangled up at night. Compared to traditional cotton, the smooth surface of silk pillowcases also reduces the chances of having morning creases on your face, which in turn reduces lifetime wrinkles.
Another benefit of silk in the beauty sphere—the fabric absorbs less moisture, unlike most other sheets. By not drawing moisture away from your skin, your hair and skin can better retain the benefits of your go-to serums for an extra bit of overnight hydration. Silk fibres also contain inherent antibacterial properties; this natural hypoallergenic quality can help to help prevent lesser bacterial build-up and keep your sheets more hygienic.

Homegrown label Sova Silk was launched last year during Singapore’s Circuit Breaker period in an effort to help emphasise the need for self-care and beauty sleep.
