This Is My New Favourite Anti-Ageing Pillowcase, Hands Down

Not only do they possess numerous purported beauty benefits (which are backed up by lots of anecdotal evidence), they're also just nice to sleep on. After switching to a silk anti-ageing pillowcase a few years ago I noticed a huge change in both my skin and hair. I saw a noticeable reduction in "sleep crease", the ironed-in wrinkles you wake up with after sleeping on a regular pillowcase, and hair frizz.
