Mulberry Park Silks: Dedicated to Healthy Hydrated Skin

Model In Silk

At Mulberry Park Silks, we love talking about how our silk pillowcases, sheets, and accessories can be an essential part of your healthy skincare routine. Our silk is a great way to keep your skin well-hydrated and prevent wrinkles; it is also hypoallergenic and non-irritating. 

But sleeping on our silk is only part of great skin care. Just like you, we have questions: what’s the best moisturizer? The best night cream? Should we be on the lookout for key ingredients like vitamin c or hyaluronic acid? Is there a specific skincare brand that is best for acne prone skin, oily skin, or sensitive skin? And is that expensive eye cream or skincare brand worth the money? So we went to the skincare experts! We asked skincare professionals to share their favorite splurge-worthy skincare products and are passing along their best advice to you.

Read on to learn what skincare products these professionals say are definitely worth the price tag.

Also love Alastin A-LUMINATE Brightening Serum for pigmentation on the face because it is hydroquinone and retinol free and is not irritating. Excellent for uneven skin and clearing pigmentation. —Dr. Brenda Dintiman.

ZO Skin Health Firming Serum

ZO Firming Serum remains a favorite of mine, and of my patients. It is used to tighten and firm skin, improving the appearance of sagging skin that has lost contour and elasticity.  The results I see with this product in my clinical setting are impressive. It contains a complex that supports the dermal epidermal junction, prevents structural strain (sagging) in skin and also contains a caprooyl tetrapeptide-3. It encourages natural wound healing. ZO Firming Serum also reduces redness, contains plant stem cells, and packs powerful antioxidants to protect skin and reduce inflammation. I have so many products that I can share with you, but if I have to pick one hero luxury product, this is the ONE.—Dr. Lynn Nieman

When it comes to high-end skincare, one product that truly stands out is the Alastin Restorative Neck Complex. This product specifically focuses on the easy-to-forget neck area.

Power Up Your Skincare Regimen with a Mulberry Park Silks Pillowcase

No matter which skincare product or routine you use, your pillowcase can dramatically impact their efficacy. And your cotton pillowcase may actually be undermining the good work of your pricey skincare regimen! Cotton is absorbent and can draw moisture out of your skin overnight, which leaves it prone to dryness. Furthermore, even the highest-quality cotton fabric contains tiny fibers that pull at your skin, which can promote sleep wrinkles and the fine lines you’re fighting. 

If you want to support your skincare regimen, it’s time to switch to a silk pillowcase. Silk fiber is made of protein, just like your skin (and hair). Instead of pulling moisture away, protein-based silk nourishes skin by promoting hydration and helping it maintain its natural moisture. At the same time, the soft, charmeuse surface of pure mulberry silk is virtually friction free, which allows your face to glide across the pillowcase with none of the pulling and tugging that causes sleep wrinkles.

Pure mulberry silk is hypoallergenic and resists mites and allergens. It is gentle, non-irritating, and perfect for all skin types, which is why dermatologists recommend sleeping on silk to promote healthy skin. Our silk is also gentle, non-irritating, and perfect for any skin type or skin concern.
