Silk sheets are a longtime, beauty secret of movie starlets. Because the face glides effortlessly along the silk (apparently, starlets never drool), silk pillowcases supposedly don’t form creases in your face and quite contrarily, they supposedly even help smooth out existing wrinkles. (Kind of like a giant, super expensive Frownie.)
Someone call an ambulance. I think this woman overdosed on silk.
Besides feeling extremely soft and silky, bamboo sheets are also all-natural, hypo-allergenic, and bacteria resistant (so they stay cleaner and fresher longer).
They breath 3-4 times better than cotton, helping you regulate your body temperature better. (They actually help you stay cooler in the summer).
And here’s the kicker. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource. It takes in 5xs the amount of greenhouse gases, and produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent-sized tree. And it doesn’t require pesticides to grow, so it’s one of the most eco-friendly materials around.
I got my 100% bamboo sheets from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I love them so much that I have a hard time getting out of bed. (So much so, that I would probably have bed sores, if I didn’t have places to be.)
So even if the beauty starlets are wrong about silky pillowcases preventing wrinkles, bamboo sheets are so comfortable, that at the very least, they help ensure I get my beauty rest. (Wait, that’s a mattress. Damn brainwashing advertisers.) I mean, beauty sleep.
(sorry, my head just hit the keyboard).
