9 of the best silk products for your beauty routine

As we head into the autumn months, we’re looking to the most luxurious ingredients that cocoon your skin and hair in complete nourishment.

Silk is one of the best beauty ingredients as it’s extremely softening and smoothing. Discover more about it below as well as our edit of the best silk-infused beauty products.

Why is silk good for the skin?

Silk is a brilliant ingredient to include in your skincare routine as it helps retain moisture and so keep your skin plumped-up and glowing.

In addition, it’s a reparative and strengthening ingredient, making it great to use in anti-ageing skincare routines.

How does a silk pillowcase work?

Unlike traditional cotton pillowcases which can leave the hair looking frizzy the morning after, a silk pillowcase is much gentler and leaves the hair soft and smooth.

The natural fibres in silk help to reduce friction on the surface of the hair, reducing breakage, damage and split ends.

The SlipSilk™ Sleep Mask has been made with the highest-quality mulberry silk, which helps to cushion your skin and prevent fine lines and creases from forming when you sleep.
