When I was developing our Crystal Moisturizing and Brightening Silk Serum, I did this with one benefit in mind: Silk can improve your skin, appearance, and overall health. Make this affordable luxury a beauty mainstay.
However, what I felt will be a great ingredient for a perfect light face serum appeared to be much more than I could imagine!
Learn about the 7 Surprising Benefits of Silk:
Actress Jane Birkin’s mother may have been onto something when she told her daughter, “When you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust. ”Silk underwear — or silk anything, really — is a small luxury. But it has big benefits. Because, the soft, strong substance not only makes great protection for a silkworm’s pupal stage. But also has tremendous effects on women’s health. When spun into sheets, pajamas, and scarves, silk may help ease menopausal hot flashes, prevent the effects of aging, and relieve certain skin conditions.
Read on to find out more about why silk may be the other fabric of our lives.
A Cool Haven From Hot Flashes
Hot flashes, that sudden warmth in the face, neck, and chest, are among the most common — and uncomfortable — symptoms of menopause. They’re caused by fluctuating hormones and by a lower threshold for heat that occurs as women age. Says Charla Blacker, MD, an obstetrician-gynecologist at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. For the 75 to 85 percent of women who suffer from this women’s health issue, she suggests sleeping in light, breathable silk pajamas or on cool silk sheets to help turn down the heat.
A Youthful, Glowing Complexion
The tightly-woven, smooth fibers of silk help keep moisture close to the skin, says Jennifer Peterson, MD, a dermatologist at the Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center in Houston. Consequently, when you wake up after sleeping on a silk pillowcase, your face will be better hydrated than if you slept on cotton. This is a great beauty tip for those with dry, flaky skin. As a bonus, she says, hydrated, plump skin cells show fewer fine lines (wrinkles!) and more luminosity than dehydrated skin cells.
Relief for Skin Irritation
“Multiple studies have pointed to the antimicrobial properties of a special European silk fabric called DermaSilk,” Dr. Peterson says. Dermasilk differs from regular silk in that it’s free of sericin, a protein produced by the silkworm. Sericin and other protein or bacteria can aggravate eczema and other skin conditions, so antimicrobial agents help skin stay clear and free of irritation. “One particular study showed improvements in patients with the skin condition eczema who used Dermasilk. But not in those who used cotton,” she adds. Additionally, because it is composed of long, smooth, natural fibers tightly woven together, silk helps decrease skin’s loss of moisture and is better tolerated than other fabrics by people with sensitive skin, Peterson says. Thus, stay away from synthetic fibers, wools, and even some cottons that may contain small, stiff, woven fibers that can cause irritation.
Help for Vaginal Yeast Infections
In the area of women’s health, new Italian research shows that silk underwear may reduce itching and redness associated with recurrent vaginal yeast infections. Half of study participants wore briefs made from Dermasilk, and the other half wore cotton. After six months, 90 percent of the silk group had fewer symptoms. And recurrences were decreased by 50 percent. Consequently, “DermaSilk’s antimicrobial properties and unique fiber weaving prevent it from accumulating too much moisture, one of the risk factors for recurrent vaginal yeast infections,” Peterson says.
A Break From Allergies
“People are very rarely allergic to silk,” says Neal B. Schultz, MD, a New York City dermatologist. This is because silk is free of any potentially irritating added chemicals. Also it contains natural substances that ward off various environmental allergens (and resulting skin conditions), including dust mites, mold, and fungus, he explains.
Healthy, Shiny Hair
“Silky smooth” isn’t just an expression. Beauty experts claim that the luxurious fabric can help keep your hair soft, moisturized, and free of pesky tangles. “Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase will cause hair to bunch, knot, and get staticky,” says New York City salon owner John Corbett. Who recently founded the nonprofit Hair2Help for cancer patients and their caregivers. “On a soft silk pillowcase, however, hair will slide, which is much less damaging.”Silk may also help preserve your style while you sleep, he adds.
Decades ago, women slept on satin pillowcases or wrapped their heads in toilet paper to preserve their teased and tortured hairstyles.
The modern-day equivalent is to sleep on — or in — silk. “One of my favorite beauty tips for women is to wrap a silk scarf around your head when you sleep,” Corbett says. “The oils won’t increase as much in your hair, and you’ll be able to hold on to your blowout for an extra day or two.”
A Good Night’s Sleep
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. Silk, with all its aforementioned benefits, is the fabric that will dress your bed for the sweetest possible slumber.“There are also pretty good studies showing that what we call ‘sleep wrinkles’ form on the side of your face on which you sleep,” says Jeffrey Spiegel, MD, a facial plastic surgeon and professor at Boston University. One way to prevent them? Use a silk pillowcase, which is gentler and less likely than cotton to resist the face and cause wrinkles. Talk about beauty sleep!
How to Apply Face Cream
Start with a clean face and hands. Wash your face with lukewarm water and a face cleaner suitable for your skin type. Splash your face with cold water. Afterwards gently pat it dry with a soft towel.
Take out a pea-sized amount of face cream onto the back of your hand. Don’t worry if you took out too little. A little bit often goes a long way. You can always apply more later, if necessary.
If the cream comes in a jar, then scoop out a small amount using a small spoon or scoop.
This will prevent your fingers from contaminating the product inside the jar. You can find scoops at most beauty supply stores.
Start applying the cream to your face. First, dab the cream onto your face in small dots. Focus on trouble areas, such as the cheeks and forehead. Avoid areas that tend to get very oily, such as the creases to either side of your nostrils.
If you have combination skin, focus more on the dry areas and less on the oily areas.
Blend the face cream in using your fingers. Then, gently massage the cream into your skin using small, upward, circular motions. Never drag downward on your skin. Be sure to leave a ½ inch (1.27 centimeter) margin around your eyes. Most face creams are not suitable for the delicate, sensitive skin around your eyes.
Apply more cream, if necessary. Look over your face.
If there are any bare patches on your face, apply a little bit more cream. Don’t slather the cream on, however. More cream is not necessarily better or more effective.
Consider applying some face cream to your neck. Many people tend to forget this area. The skin on your neck is delicate, and tends to age the fastest. It needs some attention as well.
Wait for your skin to absorb the cream before getting dressed or putting on makeup.
During this time, you can do your hair or brush your teeth. You can also start putting on your lower garments, such as underwear, socks, pants, and skirts. This way, you won’t risk rubbing off your face cream and getting it on everything else.
