We all know and love the amazing health and beauty benefits of silk, including pure silk being hypoallergenic, anti-aging and moisturising. Silk contains natural proteins and 18 essential amino acids which speed up the metabolism of skin cells and helps to counter the effects of anti aging. Silk pillowcases and sleep masks can decrease wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin's hydration, which can make you look more youthful.
So, why not take all these amazing silk benefits with us when we travel? Especially on long and tiring flights. Travelling makes your skin dry, dehydrated and not to mention the dreaded jet lag. Here at UNCU London, we're all for combating these problems and making sure that our plane journeys are well-prepared and as comfortable as possible. Summer is just around the corner, so let's make travelling a light breeze!
Below are our top 3 must have silk travel accessories. We don't board a plane without them and you can find out below why!
We don't travel anywhere without our 22-momme Mulberry silk face mask, especially on long haul flights. Face masks remain mandatory in most worldwide airports and flights, so we like to arrive in style, travel in style and sleep in style. Whilst of course be comfortable and kind to our skin. Having tried and tested various temporary single use and cotton face masks, we always gravitate back to our best-selling Mulberry silk mask in black. That 9 hour flight from Miami to London is a breeze when you can breathe and land with your face looking fresh instead of red, irritated and full on pimples (yuk!) Silk masks are hydrating, moisturising and amazingly breathable, making it the absolute #1 travel accessory on long haul flights.
Another must have silk accessory for travelling is a silk sleep mask. Our 22-Momme Mulberry Silk eye masks have pure silk inside and out with 100% silk fibre filling and an elastic silk covered band. Designed with silk on both sides, providing comfort throughout the night/flight. Not only does the sleep mask have amazing anti-aging properties but our silk sleep masks are designed to ensure block out as much light as possible. Silk sleep masks should be in everyone's handbag when travelling and sleeping on planes.
Silk scrunchies are mandatory when travelling. You can never have too many. Hair up in a messy bun - thats our style! Let's be honest, no matter how fresh your hair style boarding the plane, you will end up with a messy bun at the end of the journey. Our favourite silk benefit, you can take control of kinks and split ends while you travel. Let the silk scrunchies do the magic while you sleep. The luxurious silk maintains control of oils distributed by hair ensuring your hair is being nourished, definitely a must-have on long-haul flights.
