There are many factors that result in a lack of good quality sleep, but external light is by far the most detrimental to our sleeping patterns. While we can block out most of that at home, you are still exposed to some harmful light that can keep you from getting to sleep at night.
Without a doubt, a pure silk sleep mask could possibly be the best investment for your beauty sleep regime and is the key to a peaceful night’s sleep.
1. Less Trouble Falling Asleep
According to sleep experts all around the world, wearing a sleep mask is the best way to reduce the time you spend awake in bed, aimlessly trying to get to sleep. Wearing a sleep mask blocks out light that would normally prevent you from falling asleep, while at the same time boosts your melatonin level which will help speed up the process entirely.
The market for sleep masks includes various different shapes and styles, but the most beneficial for your beauty sleep regime is the silk eye mask. While they may cost more than the average sleep mask, silk eye masks are far more comfortable to wear and allow your skin to breathe more easily overnight or for long periods of use.
2. Prevents Exposure To Harmful Light
We are already exposed to many harmful lights during the day, from the glare of our smartphone screens to the glow of our TVs when we go home. Who wouldn’t want a break from all of that? While this type of light may boost your mood during the day, it can be difficult to switch off at night-time without a sleep mask to block out the light.
3. Boosts Your Mood
Sleep masks can work wonders on your mental health, helping to reduce depression and boost your overall mood at the same time. Scientists have confirmed that people who are exposed to too much light at night-time are more likely to develop symptoms of depression, compared to those who sleep in complete darkness.
4. Helps You To Relax More
Using a silk eye mask will help you to relax and switch off from your everyday stresses. The gentle pressure of the silk eye mask pads applied to your face has a calming effect, similar to that of a hug which releases a sleep regulating chemical called serotonin. This will make you feel tired enough to fall asleep.
What’s more is that a silk sleep mask will reduce feelings of anxiety to make you feel more relaxed, and the soft silk pads will also take the shape of your face to block out light completely.
5. Perfect For Long-Distance Travel
We all know the struggle of trying to get some good quality sleep during a plane journey, a train ride or even in the car for that matter. The light you are exposed to will have a detrimental effect on your sleep, but this can all be avoided if you have a silk sleep mask at hand. They are compact enough to slip into your travel bag and will prove to be the best investment you have ever made!
6. Improves Quality Of Sleep
Lastly, your pure silk sleep mask will improve the overall quality of your sleep. Without a silk sleep mask, the cells within the retina of your eyes will become too light sensitive and will tell your brain that it is too light for you to go to sleep.
Researchers have proven that the use of pure silk sleep masks often result in deeper quality sleep with fewer disruptions. Better yet, they have proven to boost melatonin levels, helping you to fall asleep faster and leaving you feeling completely refreshed when you wake up!
