Back to Italy: my traveling routine with pure mulberry silk

We told you how silk is the best product to sleep with and we have already listed all the best qualities that a hypoallergenic silk pillowcase  has compared to a normal cotton pillow. But what to do if our work often takes us abroad? Especially, what happens to our skin when we get on a plane? With no doubt if you travel long distances you will feel your skin tired and dry.

From mulberry plant to pure silk bedding sets

Sometimes, when we see a product we like and purchase, we don’t ask how it is made and how long is the process that leads to that item.

The ultimate skincare products are made of pure mulberry silk

I’ve always been super fan of skincare products since I was young. I remember my grandma bringing me in a very posh perfumery in the centre of Milan where they had perfumes and products from all over the world, especially skincare and anti wrinkles items. I was fascinated by those creams and serums and, as the time passed, I started to take care of my skin in a very accurate way.  Living in big city like Milan and, later, Hong Kong, my skin has always been stressed by pollution, UV rays and slightly contaminated water.
