Our bodies need to stay warm and dry with the weather turning cold and damp. When we are cold we naturally contract our muscles and tend to move less. This in turn creates aches and pains in our bodies. Staying loose and flexible becomes more of a challenge during winter.

Layering in our clothing choices becomes one solution, but how? If our clothes become too cumbersome we feel heavy and sweaty. We can even get a chill from trapped moisture and feel lethargic in thick wool sweaters and leggings.

Silk is a wonderful alternative keeping our body warm while providing freedom in movement. Benefits of wearing silk are: it preserves the body’s heat in the cold, it has moisture wicking properties keeping you dry and comfortable, it repels mold and mildew, it is hypoallergenic, and it is light and smooth making silk easy to layer under clothes.

“Silk contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. Studies have shown that amino acids calm the nervous system and fight against the effects of aging, especially on the skin. Silk also contains cellular albumen which helps speed up metabolism of skin cells therefore will reduce sign of aging. Silk pillows and sheets therefore are good for your facial skin and body.”  For more information go to http://www.redkora.com/silk-fast-facts.html
