Lashes are the last thing you probably think about when you get home from a full day of work, exhausted and drain. You may even forget to wash your face as you change into your pajamas and lie down on your bed. It’s tempting to just forget about hygiene and skip washing your face too and just rest. As you cover your face with your pillow and shuffle around in your bed, you forget one important thing.
If it’s your first time getting eyelash extensions and you have no idea how to maintain them, then we’re about to tell you something important. Your lashes can get damaged by the way that you sleep. This is because, with your lash extensions on, your natural lashes may get ripped out as well whenever you carelessly toss and turn in your bed. If you’re not careful, your natural lashes may shed faster than normal.
Some women have experienced this. Waking up and seeing their pillowcase covered in clumps of lashes. It may be a scary thing to see first thing in the morning, but there is a way to avoid such a tragedy from happening.
Silk Fabric Will be Your Bestfriend
If you normally use cotton fabric on your bedsheets, then you may consider changing them for the sake of your lashes. Silk fabric has a smoother texture and surface in comparison with your traditional cotton fabric sheets and pillowcases. As you toss and turn on your bed with your cotton pillowcase, it can potentially snag on lashes due to friction.
But with silk fabric, your skin just glides through the fabric instead of getting dragged. You can test this out for yourself when you’re buying new sheets. Run your fingers through a cotton fabric and a silk fabric and compare the difference. You’ll feel the difference in their texture and how your fingers glide through silk fabric better.
This is why silk sheets are a better option for people with eyelash extensions. But there are also other benefits you can get from using silk sheets. Did you know that by using silk sheets, you can prevent the appearance of premature wrinkles? This is because, with silk sheets, it doesn’t drag your skin too much even if you keep tossing and turning around the bed.
Silk sheets are also hypoallergenic, highly resistant to dust mites, deterioration, and is excellent at wicking away moisture-causing bacteria.
