I personally have used silk pillowcases for the past 8 months and have noticed an improvement in my sleep. Specifically, the pillowcases stay cooler than my cotton ones and are more comfortable on my face. Silk pillowcases can be very expensive, but the ones I’ve found from amazon are a better and cheaper find. They have lasted for 8 months so far and I wash them at least 4 times a month. Whether silk pillowcases work or not, I still like the look of them when I make my bed. Enjoy the recommendation. They are around $25 on Amazon. Click here.
