The best beauty investment you will make

Debby Harrington

It’ll last for years if you look after it right and will make all those beauty products you spend so much on and all those treatments you fork out for, even more beneficial.

It’s a silk pillowcase and not only does it feel like heaven when you lay your head down for the night, it’s packed with beauty benefits.

All those lines and creases you woke up with when sleeping on a ‘traditional’ pillow case disappear. Those lines can eventually become permanent and we really don’t want to be aiding and abetting wrinkles.

Your beauty products work even better and you don’t have to do anything extra. This is because silk doesn’t soak up the product so they remain on your face, doing their essential work. You can’t tell me that doesn’t sound sensational!

You even wake up with good hair because silk reduces friction, so it’s less harsh on your locks. I can vouch for this. I was well known for my crazy morning hair because with brothers, they never let any opportunity for ridicule go by. Now, I wake up and there is much less to fix, saving me much needed time in the morning.

Not convinced yet? Let’s give the last word to some other experts.

Beauty guru and the woman behind cult brand Go To, Zoe Foster Blake brought out The Face Case which is the silk pillowcase I have and highly recommend.

“Silk looks after your skin while you sleep like some kind of angelic babysitter,” she once revealed.

She calls it a skin investment piece.

Need more reasons? Kim Kardashian travels everywhere with a silk pillowcase and beauty vlogger Chloe Morello says a silk pillowcase is a beauty treatment every night.


And The Lab in Canberra stocks one of the most popular silk pillow cases – Slip.

“As you know, we are all about low maintenance beauty and silk pillowcases are one of the best beauty hacks,” co-owner Sianne Fitzsimons says.

“It’s definitely not a new beauty trick but definitely one of our faves because silk fibers not only reduce friction on your face they also preserve your blow dry (bye bye bedhead) and don’t absorb moisture from your skin.

“We love Slip because it is the highest grade long fiber mulberry silk and apart from all the beauty benefits you can’t help but feel like an absolute queen when you’re lying on them,” she says.
