1) In addition to being astonishingly beautiful, silk can help keep your skin HYDRATED. Silk keeps moisture close to your skin and, thus, adds to keeping your skin moist and supple.
2) Silk is ABSORBANT. Because of its ability to wick moisture, silk can absorb 30% of its own weight in water before it starts to feel damp.
3) Silk is suitable for all seasons. Silk can be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Though it is shear, the moisture effect mentioned above keeps a warm moist layer of air against the body. In the heat, silk's moisture-wicking qualities help you keep cool.
