Stars of the celeb world have always vowed for silk. Take the famous Marilyn Monroe, for example – the beautiful and charming actress loved to sleep on silk. What is it about silk that fascinates so many people? Of course the health and cosmetic benefits of this fabric are more than you could expect and that is why it is so popular. Here is what experts have to say:
“New research suggests the sensuous fabric isn’t just practical shorthand for allure and intimacy, it also appears to be associated with healing qualities that range from easing the symptoms of the menopause, to anti-ageing, and, most recently, relieving recurrent thrush.”- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/
“According to the National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health, 30 to 40 percent of Americans have problems sleeping. And experts say that bedding may be at least partly to blame in some of these cases. Sheets that irritate your skin, bunch up, or invite dust mites in will interfere with a good night’s rest.”- http://www.everydayhealth.com/skin-and-beauty-pictures/surprising-benefits-of-silk.aspx#08
According to Jeffrey Spiegel, MD, a facial plastic surgeon and professor at Boston University: “There are also pretty good studies showing that what we call ‘sleep wrinkles’ form on the side of your face on which you sleep.” And, the only way to stop the wrinkles from spoiling your beautiful skin is to sleep on silk.
Suzan Clements talks about her experience with silk and silk bedding and talks with THE TELEGRAPH about the benefits of this material. She says, “For me, it has brought rosacea [facial flushing and redness, sometimes with pimples]. I find a silk pillowcase feels cool in summer and warm in winter, which seemed to relieve my internal temperature fluctuations. I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin, too.”
With so much information on silk and its benefits – both health-wise and from the cosmetic point of view, you must be thinking about giving organic comforters, Cozy Earth, a try. If you have made up your mind for making a purchase, you can think about the size of the comfort as well as other considerations that need to be made.
