The holiday season is a great time to let your hair down and catch up with family and friends. With that being said, the festive season is also a time famed for high levels of overindulgence in rich foods, countless glasses of champagne and very little sleep – all the ingredients to a not so festive skin.
To ensure your skin survives the annual holiday soiree and you get enough shut eye, we’ve rounded up some splurge-worthy holiday essentials from The Silk Lady.
Not just a catchy phrase, beauty sleep is actually a real thing. When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Your body and skin repairs itself and recovers while you snooze.
Silk is a gift of nature and the ideal organic skincare and anti-aging solution! Dermatologists, hair specialists and plastic surgeons all recommend sleeping on 100% silk pillowcases. Silk has very similar properties to human skin in that it contains a natural protein that contributes to skin health by speeding up the metabolism of skin cells, whilst delaying the aging process and calming the nervous system.
Compared to other fabrics, silk has long, smooth fibres that do not rub or irritate the skin.
Sleeping on 100% organic Silk Pillowcases has both skin and hair care benefits:
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Prevents facial skin from creasing
- Maintains hydration
- Keeps your skincare product on your skin, enabling you to make the most of your beauty routine
- Eliminates sleep wrinkles
- Prevents hair from frizzing and split ends
- Reduces the loss of natural hair oils and moisture so that hair retains its natural glossy shine
- Minimizes damage to thinning of hair
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Repels dust-mites
Recommended price: Available in Standard pillow size (R550.00), King size (R645.00) and travel size (R314.00)
Made from 100% pure silk (inside and out) with an adjustable strap, The Silk Lady’s Sleeping Masks offer two-fold benefits – the luxurious feeling of soft mulberry silk against the skin, and the comfort of darkness as it blocks out light. The soft and smooth surface helps prevent facial skin from creasing during the night and allows your delicate skin to breathe so the face rests comfortably without pressure on skin.
The Satin Silk used will not absorb your valuable night creams but helps to retain the natural moisture in your skin throughout the night, keeping skin hydrated and nourished. Also included, is a pouch filled with organic French lavender to help promote relaxation and deep, restorative sleep. The deluxe, oversized sleeping mask covers the ears, so you sleep wrapped in your own luxury silk cushion.
Recommended price: available in standard size (R412.00) and deluxe size (R497.00)
Organic Peace Silk Beauty Cocoons
The Silk Lady’s Organic Peace Silk Beauty Cocoons is an all-natural, ecological way to exfoliate and promote smooth, plumped and nourished skin (a great alternative for people who love nature without cruelty).
Gentle enough to use every day without damaging the epidermis, the surface structure of the silk cocoons is softly abrasive which helps to remove impurities, dead skin and make-up residue, revealing a silky smooth and radiant skin complexion underneath.
When soaked in warm water, Sericin, a key protein created by Bombyx mori (silkworms) is released which when used regularly helps to wipe away wrinkles, effectively eliminate acne scars as well as reduce pigmentation. It also assists in healing injured or chapped skin and ease inflammation.
Recommended price: R375.00
