Have you rolled your eyes at the idea of sleeping on silk before? Have you thought it’s a frivolous waste of money, when you’ve spent your life sleeping on the good ol’ trusty cotton? I have.
You’ll be swallowing some humble pie after you’ve attempted the nocturnal experiment I’ve conducted myself, over the last fortnight or so.
It features mulberry silk pillowcases and an eye mask, by Dame Essentials (http://www.dameessentials.com).
Dame Essentials is India’s first natural anti-ageing 100% pure silk pillowcase and eye mask brand; spearheaded by Armaan Mann and her mother, Rupinder Mann.
Armaan’s inspiration is as honest and real as inspiration could be – love for sleep, and the unending quest for fabulous hair and flawless skin! It’s not that you won’t find sleep accessories in silk online. But, you can’t always trust their quality claims if they’re sold by generic vendors; and don’t you feel bummed out when you can’t pay cash on delivery?
•Dame Essentials use 22 Momme Grade 6A Long Thread pure mulberry silk, in a Charmeuse weave. Nothing else.
•Mulberry silk is the best variety of silk out there.
Even some basic reading/research will tell you that at 22 Momme, you’re dealing with a medium weight silk product of high resilience and durability.
•Your products will reach you in a lovely black and gold box; with the individual items carefully wrapped. You’ll also find a few sheets of paper detailing the benefits of your new purchase, and how to care for them.
Only someone who’s undertaken the painstaking process of sourcing, manufacturing and providing quality, will bother to fill you in, and request you to take care of your investment.
•Good quality silk will be decadently soft, and smooth.
•Mulberry silk, on top of that, has the naturally occurring protein, sercine, which reduces the changes of allergic reactions; particularly if you have hyper-sensitive skin like mine.
•If you’re an ‘animated’ sleeper, no matter how much you toss and turn, the silk isn’t going to have any harsh impact on your hair or skin, nor will it strip them of their inherent moisture content.
•Untroubled skin – which means you don’t wake up with inflamed, angry red patches, or nasty one-off breakouts (it’s the one-off kinds that refuse to disappear, don’t you agree?). I haven’t been applying my usual face oil, for fear of it staining the silk, and I expected a few blemishes and spots. I’ve no complaints to report on this front at all.
•Hair that works with you, instead of rebelling against you. In other words, you can kiss frizz and static goodbye, and say hello to soft, flowy, malleable hair.
•You won’t find yourself wrestling against your hair with 5 different types of brushes, really, just your fingers will do. Atleast, that’s the case with me.
•Regarding the eyemask: even if you find that your eye-bags/under-eye circles haven’t magically disappeared (you’d be unreasonable to expect that honestly, and you know it); you’ll find that your eyes feel rested under their mini blanket of silk.
•It’s been a while since I’ve slept so soundly and my eyes don’t look as haggard as they tend to, when I wake up. They feel fresh and pain-free throughout the day. I honestly believe the mask has something to do with it, because I do fall asleep faster, and enjoy uninterrupted sleep, the last episode of which is a distant memory.
•I’m a tad precious regarding my natural beach waves, and I’ll do anything to retain them, and to avoid frequent salon visits to fix careless maintainence mistakes. This is a picture I took of myself this morning, when I woke up:
In fact, quite recently a friend observed that my hair was looking ‘buoyant’, almost like a day-old blowdry. Cliched as that sounds, it’s true, and if she’s reading, she’ll be nodding her head. She’s revamping this website for me actually, so she’ll vouch for my statement!
Success, ladies and gentlemen.
Will I buy more?
Yes, absolutely. I spend a considerable amount on skin and hair care, even on the completely ‘natural’ products, which we all tend to assume are cheaper.
If a particular investment can assure me that the:
•Frequency of waking up to unexpected blemishes and redness will be reduced; and
•My beloved beach waves won’t need any fiddling/tousling, allowing me to boast that I #wokeuplikethis;
then I don’t mind spending the money.
Your skin and hair, like the rest of your body, exhibit profound clues about the quality of your lifestyle, so why not? And, besides, you know there’s a voice in your head telling you that your hardworking head and eyes, deserve some nice silk to lay themselves on!
