Silk Or Satin Pillow Cases For Preventing Face Creases

By , November 10, 2016 11:56 am

How To Prevent Face Creasing

This is such a simple solution to the dreaded face crease. A silk or satin pillow case is the perfect solution if you’re waking up with deep creases on your face. If you’re over forty you’ll find they can be hanging around for the rest of the day! The elasticity in our skin decreases as we age. Whereas when we were in our twenties or thirties even, a crease in the morning would be gone in an hour or so, now we have no such luck!

So how can a pillow case effect our skin in a positive way?

Satin and silk do not cause face creasing as the fabric is so smooth and slippery, making it perfect if you are finding creasing an issue. Unlike cotton, your face won’t scrunch up, and it won’t crease. That’s the theory and it’s a sound one as it goes. Satin and silk also contain natural proteins that are good for the skin and hair. Although these pillow cases will set you a back a little, it really is a sound investment in beauty. The quality of these beautiful pillow cases means they’ll last and last. Make sure you look after them though. Wash them at a suitable temperature.

There are of course many other ways to help prevent wrinkles as well as creasing although they don’t work for everyone. A pillow case is the perfect solution. Not only does it prevent face creasing, it also helps to stave off wrinkles in general as the more you age, the more likely those creases are to become permanent fixtures.

Sleep On Your Back To Prevent Ageing

Another great tip is simply to sleep on your back. This is not the easiest habit to get into but it is a solution. If you practise this each night then eventually it will be a comfortable position for you. The worst position is on your front with your face squished onto your pillow. Not only does this promote face creasing, it can also damage your neck.

Anti Ageing Creams And Serums

Some of these are better than others. The thing is that when you have a deep crease there isn’t much to be done, however good the product claims to be. A great tip for preventing lines in the first place is simply to apply some vaseline. Dab a small bit onto the area you’re trying to save and leave it there over night. So simple and so cost effective! As we get older we tend to start believing all of the outrageous anti-ageing claims made by some beauty companies. It’s like we are clutching at straws hoping that the next thing really is the magic potion we’ve been hoping for when really a tub of Nivea would probably work just as well!

Prevention Rather Than Cure

So when it comes down to it, it’s better to stop the creases from forming in the first place. Using a satin pillow case comes with a small upfront cost but once you have it we wager you won’t go back.

Collagen is not so abundant as we age and the lack of this is what causes our skin to lose it’s tone and elasticity. If we can hold off the lines for a while longer then let’s look at proven ways of doing just that.

How Does Bamboo Help Night Time Allergies?

By , October 31, 2016 12:13 pm

The Cause Of Night Time Allergies

You may have heard about the benefits of sleeping on bamboo bedding but may not know how this beautifully comfortable fabric might help and why.

Do you know that the main cause of night allergies including a blocked nose, itching and difficulty breathing can be caused by the dreaded but necessary dust mite. It’s not the mites themselves that cause the allergies but their droppings. Yikes! Sounds horrible doesn’t it? Just as well these little blighters aren’t visible to the naked eye or we’d spend all night trying to finish them off!

What Makes Bamboo Bed Linen So Successful In Preventing Or Easing Allergies?

Bamboo is ideal for Sensitive or Allergy prone skin. 100% Bamboo threads are very fine and create a smooth and soothing fabric. As a natural product Bamboo Fabric is Hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, biodegradable and totally sustainable.

Whilst there is no proven scientific evidence that bamboo helps relieve night allergies, you only have to take a look at the mass of reviews online to see that it actually works. We would even go as far as to say that if you switch to bamboo, you’ll likely never go back to cotton.

bamboo sheets

The very fine threads mean that you are protected from the dust mite droppings but also, this natural material is cooling so if your itching is caused by over-heating you’d benefit hugely.

Of course there are many causes when it comes to allergies but if yours are exacerbated at night then this may well be the reason. Did you know that you own natural levels of anti-histamine drop at night?

A Few More Tips For Night Time Itching

One amazing yet cost effective aid to the relief of night itching is ‘Witch Hazel Gel’ it’s cheap and so cooling. If you tend to suffer itching in certain spots then this is a handy item to have in your bathroom cupboard.

Anti-histamines of course. If you’re looking to cut down on your intake of these tablets then you may think about taking a look at these foods, all naturally high in anti-histamine – watercress, onion, garlic, camomile, peppermint, ginger, Pomegranates, apples and peaches.

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook things other than medicines. Processed foods may also make your allergies worse. We recently discovered that Wine contains histamine. How very upsetting!

If you are still unsure about what bamboo can do for you then do take a look at some unbiased reviews. Of course we know it’s amazing but if you don’t just want to take our word for it then a bit of research might help your decision.

Good luck fighting those night time allergies!

How to protect your baby from allergies and skin conditions in bed

By , January 27, 2016 3:22 pm

Many babies and young children develop allergies that worsen at night . This is often caused by an allergic reaction to cotton polyester bed linen. Worse still the condition can be made much worse by a reaction to house mite droppings. In a recent expert report on allergies at home.

  • 58.9% of indoor allergy sufferers found their symptoms were worse in the bedroom. The authors suggest that this was due to dust mites in the bed, quoting figures that “the average bed harbours 2 million dust mites and the average pillow doubles in weight over a period of six months due to dust mite faeces”.
  • 16% of allergy sufferers said they wash bed linen every three weeks or less often, and 58% of those surveyed said they are washing at 30 or 40 degrees. This is two weeks longer than experts  recommends and at a temperature that they say does not kill any dust mites present.
  • 13% of allergy sufferers had had their current mattress for 11 years or more, and 3% kept theirs for 20 years or longer.

But what to do?
Thankfully there are some easy answers.

Firstly get Bamboo bedding protection for mattresses , pillows and duvets to put a barrier between your child and the dust mites. For this to work the bedding protection needs to be certified by  The Medical Entymology Centre UK  who have independently tested our Bamboo Bedding Protection products as providing a 100% barrier against dust mites , and most importantly their allergens.

Why Silk Bed Linen?

By , January 21, 2014 2:48 pm

Silk has Unique Qualities

Pure Silk Sheets are excellent for people with sensitive skin and allergy problems. Silk is a natural protein based fibre containing 18 amino acids, the same building blocks of human skin. Many people use Pure Silk Pillow Cases as they are beneficial in preventing the formation of wrinkles and keeps your hairstyle looking its best. Hair and skin slide over silk unlike cotton based fabrics which catch and pull.

Silk’s good absorbency makes it comfortable in warm weather. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. Silk’s elegant, soft lustre and beautiful drape makes it perfect for bed linen and soft furnishings. The silk protein fibres are strong and resistant to stretching and they have strong peptide bonds which will not break. Silk fibres have a triangular cross section with rounded corners. This allows light to hit at many different angles, so silk is a bright fibre and has a natural shine. It has a smooth, soft texture that is not slippery, unlike many synthetic fibres.
