WE’VE picked out the best silk pillowcases that will not only add a luxurious touch to your bedroom but are also gentle on your skin and hair.

Read on to find out how to care for them and see our round up of the most popular brands.

What are the benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase?

Fans of silk pillowcases say they’re great for hair because the super smooth surface doesn’t create as much friction so your hair won’t become frizzy and damaged as you toss and turn at night.

Advocates also say the fabric doesn’t absorb as much moisture and dirt compared to cotton, which can be helpful for those prone to acne and blemishes.

Plus, the smooth surface means less friction on your skin, which can reduce irritation and therefore inflammation, as well as potentially wrinkles.

While no scientific studies have been conducted on these claims, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that it might work.

But if nothing else, the fabric just feels really nice to sleep on and is gentle on even the most sensitive skin.

We've picked out some of the best silk pillowcases for different budgets below.
