Anyone Sleep on a Satin Pillowcase to Reduce Wrinkling?

Started 1261434233 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1261507556 by iachick
I have a friend who has slept on a satin pillowcase for years and swears it works (she is in her mid-60s and does look great...very few facial wrinkles).
Has anyone here used a satin pillowcase to reduce facial wrinkling while you sleep? Just wondering if it really helps?

I have slept on a silk pillowcases for years (satin makes me too hot). I do have good skin for my age, but can't necessarily give credit to the pillowcase. However, it does help with "bed head" - gotta love it for that :-x

That is hilarious. There is no way that is valid. Wrinkles have nothing to do with pillow cases. What a hilarious person so give advice like that! If she believes that her pillow case is helping her skin, she is probably way into skin care and does a million other things to take care of her face. It's probably those things that help, it's surely not the pillow case.
However, one advantage of the satin pillow case is that it stays cool to the touch. Since everyone loves the cool side of the pillow, that is a big bonus.

I use to have a wrinkle/crease under my left eye from side sleeping. I did switch to a satin pillowcase but eventually gave up a pillow all together because I would wake up with a stiff neck. I now use a towel rolled up under my neck for support. My stiff necks have gone away and after about six months the wrinkle/crease is completely gone.

I'm not sure about reducing wrinkling, but I slept on a satin pillow case for a few years and what it does help with is the pillow line you can wake up with if your pillow case is bunched up.
I'm sleeping wilth a flannel pillow case from Northern Nights, and it fits my pillow perfectly so it doesn't bunch up.
But satin pillow cases will definitely leave your face without the pillow wrinkles that can happen if your pillow case doesn't fit your pillow properly.

I have also been using them for years now, mainly to protect my hair do.

satin doesnt make you skin pull, your skin slides over it. With the cotton pillow case I wake up in the morning with lines on my face from the skin bunching up. I believe its worth it. and I agree wholeheartedly, great for bed head, doesn't bunch up the hair as well.

I have seen female dermatologists recommend sleeping on your back to prevent wrinkles. That I can see. I just can't do it, I keep flipping to my side. Pillowcase? Hardly worth the bother.

Yes, it does work and there have been many articles on using satin or silk to reduce wrinkles that you get from a cotton pillow case. Satin or silk is the way to go since they are smooth and soft and don't give you the wrinkles/skin creases you get with using the cotton pillowcases.

You're certainly entitled to you opinion but I totally disagree. I have slept on a satin pillowcase for years and feel it has really helped. The satin gives lots of slip and I never wake up with wrinkles from a non slip case. I am 60 years old and believe me, genetics did not factor into my very few wrinkles face. People can't believe that I am 60.

I'm 57 and have slept on a silk pillowcase my whole life. It doesn't pull on your face like a cotton one does.
My Mother and Grandmother's face were beautiful and never used any skin care but Pond's cold cream and slept on silk pillowcases.
I don't know how old you are but give it a try and let me know when you are my age what you think.;-)

I know people who have said satin or silk cases keep them from getting "sleep wrinkles" . These are temporary creases from sleeping incorrectly with a pillow, etc. Some people believe repeating certain facial movements can cause creases in the face. I think this would apply to sleeping in a certain manner where you are squishing your face every night. Also, the older you get the longer it takes for overnight sleep creases to disappear in the morning.

I just order the dreamskin pillowcase they said if you sleep on a cotton case it pulls the moisture out of your skin I truly believe that ,cotton is an absorbant material so that makes sense that it will absorb moisture from the skin on your face.I do not want all my serums getting absorbed into my pillowcase. I am looking forward to getting my new pillowcase. They are selling them on Shopnbc.

I order my silk pillowcases from Soft Surroundings and they are fabulous.

I used a silk pillowcase all Summer and loved it but then it was feeling cold so I switched to 'comfort and cozy' Northern Nights flannel.

Well, my DMIL always made me get her satin pillowcases even when she was in a nursing home and she had FABULOUS skin! I never knew what her thing was with them, I just obliged and got them when she asked. I have to get one now because you helped me make the connection. Also bet they would make my nighttime "power surges" more comfortable!

I have used satin pillowcases since I was a teenager. My favorite ones are from Vermont Country Store.

I have also read several articles where prominent dermatologists recommend silk or satin pillowcases so it's not just an ''urban legend''.

My mother has always testified to this. She is 63 and looks great but who really knows why?

I would like to try the satin pillowcases, but do you need to match with satin sheets? If anyone that has satin pillowcases do you all have satin sheets too? TIA, to everyone and I've heard this before that satin or silk pillowcases helps with wrinkles.

I only use satin pillow cases, not sheets. Satin sheets are slippery! LOL Can't stay on the bed:^O

LOL!! So true! We had one set of satin sheets....never again! The pillowcase is enough.

I always sleep on my back. Satin pillowcases wouldn't benefit my skin at all. I don't care to sleep on satin anyway.
During the winter I could not give up my super plush, soft and cuddly fleece sheets from The Company Store. It's like sleeping on a cloud of silkly soft thick cashmere. Even better than that.
I would sleep on them year round if they weren't so darn warm and snuggly. I thought good quality flannel sheets were the ultimate comfy sheets until I found these babies. My HG winter sheets!!

Sometimes I use a satin pillowcase but mostly I don't. I am not sure if satin pillowcases reduce wrinkling. Perhaps it does.
