Satin Pillowcases: A Dream Present For All
THE holiday season is fast approaching with shops festooned in festive finery, signalling the start of the annual quest for the perfect present for your loved ones. One stocking filler that’s a gift guaranteed to keep on giving is a bespoke satin pillowcase.
“Satin pillowcases are the epitome of luxury. From the elegant sheen and classic beauty of the fabric, to the soft lustrous feeling against the skin, satin pillowcases bring extravagance to the bedroom. Best of all, they offer an array of health and beauty benefits,” says Every Second Counts creator, Kim Orgill. She explains: “Satin pillowcases are a dream to sleep on and good for the skin too! Unlike cotton fabric, which draws moisture from the skin, sleeping on a satin pillowcase works to balance moisture levels with the result being a softer, more radiant complexion. What’s more, satin pillow cases don’t leave sleep lines on the face and actively work against the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin to reverse the signs of aging.”
“Snoozing on a satin pillowcase is also gentle on the hair,” continues Orgill. “Not only does it eliminate knots, it also prevents hair loss and damage since the smooth surface means that hair slides across the pillow, making it much less likely to get tangled and torn.” She shares that this applies to lashes too, with satin pillowcases being particularly beneficial for those who wear eyelash extensions. “When sleeping on cotton pillow cases, lash extensions can get caught, snagged, pulled and twisted, which can cause lash damage, shedding or bald spots. With satin pillowcases being made of tightly woven fabric, lashes will have no friction and never get stuck, ripped or bent. As a result, the life of the lashes and bonds are lengthened.”
Orgill adds that asthma sufferers particularly enjoy sleeping on satin pillowcases as they are hypoallergenic and attract far less dust mites than cotton pillowcases. “It’s no wonder that satin pillowcases are recommended for patients undergoing facial surgery, plastic surgery and chemotherapy.”
Each Every Second Counts pillowcase is made from the highest quality, hand-picked satin and handcrafted by a team of local women. They are available in a variety of colours, including baby blue and hot pink for little boys and girls.
