GLOWING COMPLEXIONThe power of luxury, the power of silk.
The tightly-woven, smooth fibers of silk help keep moisture close to the skin, says Jennifer Peterson, MD, a dermatologist at the Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center in Houston. This is a great beauty tip for those with dry, flaky skin. As a bonus, she says, hydrated, plump skin cells show fewer fine lines (wrinkles!) and more luminosity than dehydrated skin cells.
YOU'LL LOOK AWESOME!Many fabrics claim to feel “soft as silk” but what could be better than the real thing? Synthetic fibres such as polyester were first developed last century from a desire to imitate the precious silk fibre. But silk has unique properties that no manmade fibre can imitate.
There are some benefits to silk that are hard to quantify. If you have never slept on silk it is hard to describe how luxurious and sensuous it feels. Think of it this way, when someone tells you something has a silky feel what thoughts instantly come to mind. Do you imagine something soft and pleasant to the touch? That is what silk is. It caresses your body in softness. It is a wonderful feeling.
