Silk pillowcases? Maybe for royalty but not for you, right? Wrong! Silk pillowcases may seem like an extravagant luxury, but you’d be amazed at the benefits they provide. First off, silk pillowcases can help prevent wrinkles by reducing friction on the skin. Second, silk pillowcases help to keep skin moist, which is especially important for people who have diabetes and who may be prone to having dry skin. In addition, a silk pillowcase can keep your hair healthier by preventing frizz, and keep your hair hydrated, too.
