Busy day tomorrow? Too much on at work? Have to drop the kids off early at school in the morning?
Annoyingly, all of these thoughts seem to spring to mind as soon as your head hits the pillow. Every-day worries are hard to shake off and often hinder us from rewinding and relaxing at night. Sometimes, the simple luxury of getting a restful night sleep seems to be a far-off dream, with statistics showing that more than half of adults around the world feel as though they don’t get enough sleep.
As we all know, sleep is vital for our mental health and wellbeing. A big factor that can impact us achieving a much needed, deep sleep is the light in our bedrooms. Many of us are unaware of the benefits that eye-masks can have on our sleep quality. The light that seeps through our curtains or blinds in the early hours of the morning can trigger chemical events in our bodies that disturb our sleep cycle and wake us up. Popping on an eye mask before drifting off to a peaceful, deep sleep can encourage our bodies and minds to remain relaxed and in sleep mode until it’s time to wake up. Read on for more benefits of sleeping with an eye mask.
What are Silk Eye Masks?
Silk eye masks are trendy masks that fit comfortably over your eyes and prepare you for a fantastic night’s sleep. Of course, they are made out of the glorious fabric, silk, and give you some extra help to keep your eyes shut until morning. They are incredibly comfortable and beneficial for your skin.
Top 3 Benefits of a Silk Eye Mask
1. Hydrating for the eye-area
Silk masks are no ordinary eye mask. Silk holds incredible hydrating properties that retain moisture on the skin and prevent overnight dryness. After a full night’s sleep using our Silk Eye Mask, the skin around your eyes will appear bright and moisturised in the morning. Continuous use can promote anti-aging as by keeping your eyes hydrated decreases the chance of fine lines and dark circles.
2. Improving our sleep quality
As mentioned previously, eye masks are perfect for blocking out the light and achieving undisturbed sleep. Studies show that eye masks increase the level of melatonin in our bodies which can promote healthier sleep patterns and a more restful sleep. Eye masks are also the perfect travel companion and can block out harsh airplane lights on overnight journeys and our Sleep Essential Set includes a beautiful Scentered pouch for you to carry your silk mask around in.
3. Gentle on the skin
The skin around our eye area is some of the thinnest on our whole body and is usually quite delicate and sensitive. Regular cotton or polyester eye masks may irritate the skin overnight or leave crease marks on the face. Due to the thread count of silk however, it’s the perfect fabric to use for eye masks because it’s incredibly soft and gentle, making them a better option.
