The Yogi’s Answer to the Perfect Night’s Sleep
By: Logan Bennett, Executive Marketing, Dallas Yoga Magazine
I am one of those women guilty of spending thousands of dollars in skin care. From designer foundations to an insane $85 on a .7 oz tube of retinol. This may sound crazy to some but coming from someone who has had a history of painful acne it does a number on your self-esteem. Last month, I was scrolling through web MD for a quick fix on how to deal with my newest breakout and I saw something that sparked a flame. It asked the question “How often do you change pillow cases.” I took a huge sip of my lavender tea and saw the light bulb. Holy crap, I mean I wash them occasionally…well probably not occasionally enough. Then the hunt started, this girl needed new pillow cases. I stumbled upon SHHH Silk, OK… so may I was partially distracted by the beautiful marble print pillow. Then went on to read the wonderful qualities; 100% mulberry silk, hidden zipper, keeps hair looking perfect, did I mention the marble print? I knew this would be an upgrade from the old cotton one I had had since my first apartment.
My wonderful experience started with their fantastic customer service, they were incredibly friendly and took care of my request quickly. I received my order promptly and the packaging was incredibly sophisticated and top of line. I was amazed when I felt the silk…so soft! I couldn’t wait to put it on my pillow. The first night sleeping with the pillow was heaven, I slept with my hair in a loose pony tail and had 0 creasing. Day 3 I decided to experiment and curl my hair before bed to see how it would look in the morning. I was shocked! What kind of witch craft was this? It looked perfect. It took about two weeks for my acne to start diminishing, it was not a quick fix but quite possible a long-term solution. I am so happy with this product, the price tag seemed high at first, but after trying this pillow case it’s worth every penny. You cannot put a price tag on a good night’s sleep, amazing hair and great skin.
A couple of months later, my face has cleared and I am spending less and less money on skincare. I also have come to find out that I can curl my hair before bed and wake up with incredible loose curls. This has saved me so much time in the mornings. Between getting a toddler ready, trying to feed him a semi healthy breakfast and being on time I can say this is a huge life saver.
This product is most certainly an investment, one of those items once you have you had no idea how you could have lived without it. The manufacturers have created a special laundry detergent for the cases that will help preserve the cases and will also benefit those with allergies to soups and detergents. The site also sells pillows to go inside a case, I personally just used a normal pillow that seems to work just as well. The design on it has an almost unnoticeable zipper so that the pillow won’t slide out of the case. There is also the added benefit of silk being hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to dust, mold and other allergens. This also helps prevent wrinkles and of course gives you a taste of what it would be like to sleep on a cloud. My silk robe has always been a go to, but now I am adding more and more silk into my life! I highly recommend you try this product.
Until then, stay beautiful yogis!
