The importance of getting good quality sleep has been historically overlooked, however with growing awareness of the importance of good quality sleep due to its wide-ranging impact on our physical and mental health, more and more of us are focusing efforts on achieving a better night's rest.
There’s nothing worse than trying to get to sleep at night but you simply can’t due to light shining through into your line of sight during the night. Light disruption during the night is one of the most common causes of poor quality sleep reported by people struggling to sleep, and for this reason many of us look for techniques to help block out the light during the night.
This is why using an eye mask for sleeping is a popular choice for those looking to improve the quality of their sleep, as it is a much more affordable option compared to investing in black-out blinds! In particular, a silk eye mask offers a luxurious and comfortable option that also offers a number of beauty benefits, which is why we believe using a silk eye mask for sleeping should be an essential part of your daily sleep routine.
Why cover eyes for sleep?
Here we cover the reasons why a 100% silk eye mask is the best eye mask for sleeping:
Prevent light disruption as you sleep
The darkness created by a silk eye mask helps to stimulate the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Using an eye mask for sleeping helps to promote better quality sleep as eye coverings for sleep prevent light shining through during the night, which helps to give you a more peaceful sleep experience.
Mulberry silk fabric is naturally temperature-regulating, which means that using a silk eye mask for sleeping will help to keep your face cool and comfortable throughout the night. This can help to reduce sweating and discomfort, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Silk is a very breathable fabric which makes it very comfortable to wear throughout the night, promoting a more comfortable night's sleep.
Silk is good for sensitive skin
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to dust mites and mould, which makes it a very good choice for people with allergies or sensitive skin. This makes a silk eye mask suitable for all types of skin.
Overnight skincare for your face
Silk is smooth and soft to the touch, making it comfortable to wear against the skin. The smoothness of silk also reduces friction, which can help to prevent wrinkles and creases forming on the delicate skin around your eyes. Mulberry silk is also hydrating as silk tends to absorb significantly less moisture compared to other materials like cotton. This means that it helps to keep your skin hydrated as you sleep. It also means that a silk sleep mask will absorb less moisture from overnight creams than other eye masks, so if you have an expensive skincare routine, a silk eye mask is an absolute essential!
A silk sleep mask aids relaxation
The softness and smoothness of a mulberry silk sleep mask can create a sense of calm and relaxation, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Even the process of putting on a silk sleep eye mask each night creates a sleep ritual that can then become a habit, by consistently signalling to your body that it is time to sleep. This means that over time, your body uses this as a signal to indicate you are ready to sleep, which will then make it easier to fall asleep at night.
Worth the investment
An eye mask made from 100% silk is a timeless, long-lasting investment that can provide many nights of comfortable sleep.
As you can see, a silk eye mask is the best eye mask for sleep, not only due to its light-blocking qualities, but also because of the natural properties of silk that provide ultimate comfort as you sleep each night.
