Benefits of Satin Pillowcases and Why They Are the Secret to Healthier Hair and Skin | LUNARIA DREAMS

Satin pillowcase


Long before starting LUNARIA, I heard about the benefits of satin or silk pillowcases and was looking at the slip pillowcases on Sephora. They were absolutely out of my budget, so I turned to Amazon to find a satin pillowcase. When using them, they weren't bad per se, but they didn't seem to do all that much for me. They were just OK. Which is not exactly what I'm looking for given the rising popularity of satin/silk pillowcases, I needed it to essentially fix and do wonders to my hair and skin. 

Fast forward to now, I have now launched my own satin pillowcases, carefully crafting (and still improving) my design to really create the sleep experience and luxurious beauty hack everyone has been accrediting to satin/silk pillowcases. If you don't already know, there is a big difference between satin and silk. 

I started off with creating and testing my own satin pillowcases before launching them because I wanted to be SURE that I was feeling and seeing the benefits from satin pillowcases myself. One thing that I realized upon starting my own brand and seeking and trying out sewing different fabrics myself, is that there are many different satin fabrics with varying degrees of quality (they are NOT all made the same!). For instance, those pillowcases I got from Amazon were more rough, making it not as luxurious as I was hoping, and were super thin, making them prone to ripping and not lasting through multiple washes. 

That made using our satin charmeuse fabric perfect for our satin pillowcases. They are super soft & silky-feeling and the most durable satin fabric we have ever come across. The glow (not the excessively shiny) that this satin fabric provides will not only offer the aesthetic appeal of elegance and glamour to your bedroom, but also all the advantageous properties that you are looking for in a silk pillowcase, at the fraction of the cost.

With that, let's get into the benefits of our satin pillowcases:


1. Non-abrasive material for your skin

Our satin pillowcases are super soft and luxurious, providing a gentle surface that helps to nurture your skin as you sleep. Unlike traditional cotton pillowcases or lower grade satin that causes friction, our satin charmeuse pillowcases are non-abrasive, reducing the potential for sleep lines, wrinkles, and creases. By gliding effortlessly against your skin, satin pillowcases prevent tugging or pulling that can lead to premature aging. The result? You wake up with smoother skin. 

2. More good hair days

One of the most talked about benefits of satin pillowcases lies in their ability to transform your hair. The smooth texture of satin minimizes friction between your hair strands and the pillowcase, reducing the likelihood of tangles, breakage, and frizz. This means that you can bid farewell to those dreaded bedhead mornings and say hello to smoother, more manageable hair. Whether you have curly, straight, or textured hair, our satin pillowcases will help to maintain your hairstyle while preserving the natural oils that keep your locks nourished and vibrant.

3. Moisture retention

Cotton pillowcases, although comfortable, have a tendency to absorb moisture from your hair and skin, which can leave them feeling dry and dehydrated. Our satin pillowcases, on the other hand, offer outstanding moisture retention properties. The silky surface of our satin charmeuse helps to preserve the natural oils in your hair and skin, allowing for better hydration while you sleep. This is especially beneficial for individuals with dry or sensitive skin, as it helps maintain the skin's moisture barrier and prevent overnight dryness. You also maximize the benefits of your nighttime skin routine by locking in those nutrients!

4. Always sleep on the "cool-sides"

Have you ever gotten frustrated with tossing and turning during the night, flipping over and back just to feel like your head feels hot and you just can't sleep? I've been there! Our satin pillowcases provide wonderful temperature regulation, making them an ideal choice for a comfortable night's sleep. The fabric feels cooling against your head and face that takes longer to become "too hot" and cools to the perfect temperature, quicker. 

5. Luxurious decor

We designed our pillowcase with an envelope (essentially a little pocket flap), so your pillowcase doesn't shift off the unsightly pillow, making it always look beautifully seamless and polished. Our signature satin charmeuse fabric has a stunning glow to it to give your bedroom the elegance and glamour while also being functional for your beauty sleep.
