The latest article from MayfairSilk also makes a range of recommendations for the most suitable bedding for those with eczema, using evidence and science-backed research.
Beginning with an outline of how eczema is defined by dermatologists and who it affects, the report explains that the skin condition is inflammatory and uncomfortable for most sufferers, and can affect adults, children and even babies. The author describes the symptoms of eczema as dry, red, itchy and flaky skin that can become inflamed, swollen and even lead to bleeding in severe cases.
The article goes on to discuss the ways in which sufferers try to relieve their symptoms, mentioning corticosteroid creams that provide temporary relief. MayfairSilk then details the importance of understanding the cause of irritation that can cause eczema flare-ups, such as rough fabrics, and cites Dr Harley Farmer as a reliable source. Later, the author also adds that keeping skin away from continuous direct contact with bacteria and dust mites has been found to reduce the aggravation of eczema.
At this point, the brand points out that for 8 hours each night, the skin comes into contact with bedsheets. If those bed sheets are made with fabrics such as cotton or artificial materials such as polyester, then the skin is irritated throughout the night.
As such, by replacing bed sheets with pure silk bedding, customers can find relief and soothe itchy skin, as well as reduce the spread of dust mites and allergens, thanks to the hypoallergenic, antibacterial, anti-mould and anti-fungal properties of pure silk. The author also highlights the smoothness of silk sheets, which allow for reduced friction when moving during sleep.
Further, silk regulates body temperature without absorbing excess moisture from sweat, which means the skin isn’t dehydrated and doesn’t dry out to cause irritation and eczema flare-ups. The brand then recommends the best quality silk for eczema sufferers to sleep on, which is also free from harmful chemicals.
