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.

Silk Bed Linen – Made in the UK

By , April 9, 2013 10:02 am

Many people love the idea of sleeping in Pure Silk Bed Linen. For thousands of years only the Chinese Emperor and his court could experience the unique comfort and softness of Pure Silk. Gradually the secrets of Silk made their way along the Silk Road and out into the world and by the 2oth century Pure Silk was widely used for fashion clothing. Silk bed linen was still a well kept secret and only available from the most expensive stores around the world.

It wasn’t until the early 90’s that a young Bed Linen Designer – Jane Allen of Between the Sheets began to make Pure Silk Bed Linen in the UK. She went to China and sourced Pure Mulberry Satin Silk Fabric directly , and uniquely, imported the Silk fabric on the roll to the UK to make the bed linen in her own Wiltshire workshops. She took care to source  100% Pure Mulberry Satin Silk, A grade long  staple silk, 19 momme and 400 thread count which has been used for centuries to make Silk Bed Linen in China for the elite.

Nearly 25 years later  Between the Sheets is still the only UK manufacturer of Pure Silk Bed Linen -creating beautiful Silk bed Linen for your Home.
As a manufacturer Between the Sheets can custom make bed linen to fit any shape of Bed – Worldwide. Look at the wonderful range of colours here

How to Care for Pure Silk Bed Linen

By , April 18, 2012 2:31 pm

Silk care instructions
Pure silk is available as bed sheets in several different weaves and finishes. Our 100% pure SATIN SILK has that glossy Hollywood look you have seen in the movies. It is cool in summer – absorbing your body moisture as you sleep, and it has insulating properties to keep you warm in winter.

Silk is the most luxurious fibre in the world. The weaving of the fabric may contain minor irregularities, these are characteristic of fine silk yarn which gives the fabric its beauty, lustre and texture and should be not be treated as defects.

We only use the finest quality Mulberry Silk. This silk has a thread count of 400 and a weight of 19 momme – 86 gm per sq m.

We make our pure silk duvet covers, fitted sheets and pillow cases ‘oversized’ by approx 3% to allow the silk fibres to shrink slightly during its first 1/2 washes. This also closes the fibres together giving the silk strength. Please remember that silk is a most delicate fabric and must be treated with loving care to preserve its fine texture and softness. To find more information on the History and qualities of Silk Click Here. 

1. We recommend  either hand washing or dry cleaning the silk bedding for the first 2/3 times will preserve the gloss of the satin and will also soften the silk fibres. There will be some colour loss especially the darker tones, buy this will lessen over the initial launderings.
2. We recommend hand washing at 30ºC. Our silk can be machined washed at 30ºC. TAKE CARE THAT YOUR MACHINE HAS A 30ºC DELICATES CYCLE and use a good Silk washing agent (many are available in good supermarkets). Never use detergents as these will make the silk fibres brittle. Fabric conditioner may be used in the final rinse. Top Tip  Add a drop of vinegar to the final rinse to aid removal of any washing agent and to give a super shine to the fabric.
3. Most modern washing machines have a ‘Delicate’ cycle at 30ºC, ensure that this includes a reduced spin cycle . Do not bleach, scrub or wring the sheets.
4. Shake off excess water from the sheets and air dry. We do not recommend tumble drying as this tends to heat and crease the fibres, again making the fibres brittle so shortening the life of the silk sheets.
5. Do not dry in sunlight or near radiators. Sunlight will fade silk, especially deeper shades.
6. Silk should not be allowed to get too soiled before cleaning, keep the sheets fresh and in good condition with regular cleaning.
7. Satin Silk may also be dry cleaned. Choose your dry-cleaner carefully, preferably one that you have previously used for silk (or one that has been recommended to you) and make sure that they can clean silk properly. Incorrect dry cleaning can damage your sheets.
8. When still damp cool iron on reverse with gentle steam, if required.
9. Use a good mattress protector or soft blanket under the fitted sheet.
10. Be aware that rough skin on heels , broken and chipped toe nails and even strong hairs on legs can cause excessive wear and pull threads on Silk Sheets.
11. Top Tip 1 – Fitted sheets get the hardest wear in normal use. Try rotating the sheet after each washing ie. Head end to foot end and vice versa. This reduces wear at the foot end of your fitted sheet and can substantially prolong the life of your sheets.
12 Top Tip 2 – To remove protein based stains e.g. Blood use a light sprinkling of Baking Powder and moisten stain and it will come away.

TIP for ironing fitted sheets
Have a good mattress protector on your mattress and when you come to iron the fitted sheet, put the fitted sheet inside out on top of the mattress protector and iron the sheet in situ. That way you will get a good finish at the corners and down the sides of the sheet. When done, turn the sheet over to the right side.

You will have many years of delight in your silk sheets if you follow the instructions above.

Choose your dry-cleaner carefully, preferably one that you have previously used for silk (or one that has been recommended to you) and make sure that they can clean silk properly.

Bed Linen in Natural Pure Mulberry Silk

By , June 16, 2010 1:50 pm

Why choose Pure Mulberry Silk for Bed Linen

Silk is a natural protein based fibre containing 18 amino acids, the same building blocks of human skin. The silk protein fibres are strong and resistant to stretching and they have strong peptide bonds which will not break. 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 luster and beautiful drape makes it perfect for bed linen.

Silk Bed Linen 19 Momme 400 Thread Count

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. Our silk is of the very highest quality and weight, woven with a Satin finish for that exquisite gloss finish, silky softness and beautiful drape . Ours is the finest quality 100% Pure Mulberry Silk, 19 momme & 400+ thread count.

Ideal for Skin and Hair

Pure Silk Sheets are excellent for people with sensitive skin and allergy problems. 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.

Judging Silk Quality

There are many types of Silk and very many qualities. Our silk is 100% Pure Mulberry Silk. The finest there is. Our Chinese suppliers are expert in producing beautiful silk fabrics in a stunning range of colours. An excellent weight for bed linen is 19 momme.Mommes (mm) is a unit of weight traditionally used to measure the density of silk. Only 400+ thread count is suitable for bed linen. Beware of very cheap Silk Bed Linen. It sould easily be a Silk/Cotton mix or you will even find Man-made fibres being sold as Silk. You can test with a lghted match. Real silk burns and smells a little like burning hair, man-made fabrics will burn and melt!
