Silk pillowcase – beauty benefits while you sleep
A silk pillowcase to sleep on is one of the best beauty regimes you can treat yourself to. We all have our individual beauty routines that we make time for during the day — usually first thing and last thing — but imagine an easy all-night beauty treatment that takes extra care of your skin and your hair without any effort from you, while you sleep.
What do silk pillowcases do?
What do silk pillowcases do is a question that we get asked quite often. There are lots of benefits that silk offers and one of the most important is what we call glide. The silky smoothness of this luxurious natural fibre, Mulberry Silk, is what takes care of your skin and your hair while you sleep. For example, have you ever woken up from your cotton or synthetic pillowcase with creases on your face? Well, that won’t happen with silk. Because your skin slides beautifully over silk, it means that no matter how much you might toss and turn if you’re a restless sleeper, the silk surface of your Lujo Home pillow case will continue to offer you a wonderfully smooth surface to rest on. And because it’s the best quality silk, it also helps keep your skin and hair well hydrated.
Silk pillowcase beauty benefits
Quite often, we get reports from our customers who had skin reactions, overheating etc from sleeping on cheaper, synthetic pillowcases and this is what has led them to seek out a healthier option such as our top-quality Mulberry Silk pillowcases.
Here’s just a short list of some of the benefits our customers tell us they get from sleeping on their Lujo Home silk pillowcase:
- smoother looking skin
- hair is not tangled
- fresher looking skin
- no awful creases
- I don’t feel hot and uncomfortable any more
- I look younger
- my awful rash has gone
- I don’t sweat as much
- I wake up feeling refreshed
- my skin just feels better!
Are silk or satin pillowcases better?
Although it’s quite common to hear people talk about silk and satin in the same sentence, they’re actually worlds apart — very different fabrics, indeed. Yes, they might both look to be shiny and smooth, and in the past, satin used to be made from silk. But the satin of today is actually made from synthetic material such as nylon, rayon and polyester. Synthetic satin is generally a much more affordable option, but when you consider what you would normally spend on your beauty routine? We think investing in a quality silk pillowcase is a very small price to pay. If you really, truly want to get the biggest health and beauty benefits from your pillowcase, we recommend you choose 100 percent silk. There really is no substitute for the best.
Benefits of sleeping on a 100% silk pillowcase
Here are some of the beautiful benefits of sleeping on a 100% silk pillowcase:
- naturally cool
- reduces sweating
- less oily hair
- less oily skin
- fewer skin breakouts
- a better, more restful sleep.

So you can be sure that whichever silk you choose — lighter or heavier — you will always be choosing the best silk pillowcase. And be assured that every Lujo Home pillowcase has the same quality construction with a neat, hidden zip.
Which weight silk would make it the best silk pillowcase for you?
They’re all beautiful top-quality silks however different people prefer different weights. That’s why Lujo Home gives you a few options to suit your individual needs:
- 19 momme is a great starter pillowcase, slightly thinner silk but still the best quality
- 22 momme is a beautiful in-between weight in silk, a stunning silk sheen
- 25 momme is slightly heavier again, with a slightly less silky sheen and extra durability.
- Different momme, different colour range
One thing to consider before you decide which momme you would like, is colour. The colours in our 3 different ranges do vary, so make sure your favourite colour is available in the momme you choose before you place your order.
