Prevent Night Sweats and Chills With Silk Sheets

night-sweats-and-chillsIf you suffer from night sweats and chills, finding bedding that adapts to your rapidly changing temperature throughout the night can feel impossible. Thankfully, silk sheets are the answer! Silk sheets have incredible heat regulating capabilities, and will ensure that your night sweats and chills are no longer an issue. The result? Less tossing and turning and a more relaxing, restful sleep!

How Do Silk Sheets Help?

One of the most difficult things to deal with when it comes to night sweats and chills is your body’s variance in temperature throughout the night. It is not that your bedroom’s heating levels are changing, but that your body is changing its internal temperature, for a wide array of reasons including menopause, illness, hormone fluctuations, or as a side effect of medication.

Why a Silk Charmeuse Pillowcase is Perfect for Sensitive Skin

charmeuse-silk-pillowcaseAre you considering purchasing a new pillowcase for your bedding, but worry that new fabrics may irritate your sensitive skin? Instead of worrying about the “what ifs”, consider purchasing a silk charmeuse pillowcase instead. These silk pillowcases are guaranteed not to bother sensitive skin, and come with a wide range of other great benefits for your skin’s overall health.

1. Silk is Naturally Occurring

Unlike many man-made or synthetic fabrics used in bedding today, silk is a naturally occurring material.  Silk naturally occurs from the cocoons of silkworms, and is woven into the fabric we know today. This means that in your silk charmeuse pillowcase, there are no synthetic materials or artificial additions to the fabric. Simply put, the synthetic materials or chemicals that can irritate your sensitive skin do not exist within silk. Your pillowcase will not pull, rub, or stick to your delicate facial skin. Instead, our signature charmeuse weave finish will glide easily over your skin, no matter what position you’re sleeping in.

2. Silk is Breathable

Silk is an extremely breathable fabric, unlike many other synthetic and natural fabrics. Instead of trapping air within the fabric of the pillow and pillowcase, silk charmeuse pillowcases allow air to move in and out of the fabrics while you sleep. This means that new oxygen is passing by your skin throughout the night, letting your skin breathe and feel refreshed. Fabrics without this quality not only keep stale air within the pillow itself, but do not let fresh air in. Continue Reading
