Six health benefits from sleeping in Elle & Alix silk

Major Benefits of Sleeping in Silk

1. A Youthful & Glowing Complexion

When you awaken from sleeping in our silk linens, your skin will feel better hydrated than if you had slept in cotton. Silk absorbs up to 40% of its weight in moisture letting your skin breathe while you sleep. This is a great beauty tip (B) for those suffering from dry skin. Hydrated skin cells show fewer wrinkles and more luminosity. (S) 


2. Relief from Skin Irritation

The 13 unique amino acids in Elle & Alix Silk (B) and the unique molecules in silk sericin have amazing abilities to help maintain our body’s natural oils. This directly aids dry skin and eczema sufferers immediately. Since silk is composed of long, smooth, natural fibers tightly woven together, it helps decrease skin’s loss of moisture and is far better accepted by our DNA than other natural fibers by people with sensitive skin.


3. Asthma & Allergy Relief

Silk is a naturally evolved and produced fiber coated with silk sericin. Elle & Alix silk repels dust mites while our natural hypoallergenic characteristic eliminates allergies and asthma caused by cotton and other fibers. Because we twist and weave single strands also known as filaments, Elle & Alix silk is naturally hypoallergenic. Shorter and more specifically, spun bedding fibers create airborne microbial particles. These particulates get inhaled when we sleep and cause allergies in millions of people every day.


4. Healthier, More Lustrous Hair

Our smooth filaments of silk coated with silk sericin rejuvenate hair by stimulating hair growth, fighting frizz and gliding over our hair making it great for those with hair extensions. Silk also has been scientifically tested to reduce signs of stress and fatigue as well as eliminate wrinkles. [Journal of Scientific & Industrial Research Vol. 63, April 2004]


5. Relief for Menopausal Sleepless Nights

Women who suffer from hot flashes during Menopause should sleep in light, breathable silk pajamas or on cool silk sheets to help turn down the heat. Silk’s natural temperature regulating property gives you the ability to stay warm and cozy in the winter yet cool in the summer.

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.
