In these stressful times, it is difficult to get a good night's sleep. Feeling tired during the day could be that you are getting less of the recommended 8 hours of sleep. One reason could be that light is interfering. The blue light that emanates from your phone and computer screens has been shown to disturb sleep. Even if we darken our bedrooms, turn off phones, light from the street, or even other rooms alter our sleep patterns.
Knüg's beautiful 100% Mulberry silk sleep masks are the silver lining to interrupted sleep and ideal for blocking out the light.
A COST-EFFECTIVE INVESTMENT IN YOUR HEALTH
Sleeping in total darkness with a Sleep Mask allows your body to produce melatonin. By not producing enough melatonin, you increase the risk of disease. Melatonin is a natural producing hormone that is important to keep your skin healthy and youthful. Its antioxidant effects neutralise the sun's oxidative damage and stimulate growth receptors in the skin.
Another Silk Sleep Mask benefit for your health is by wearing one, you increase the capacity to deliver REM sleep, known as deep sleep, characterised by rapid eye movement. A night of deep sleep allows us to reduce stress and leads to you waking in a positive mood. A Silk Sleep Mask is a inexpensive way of investing in your health.
A SLEEP MASK MINIMISES DISTRACTIONS
Many of us, seconds after crawling into bed, feel the urge to check our phones or iPad. We all know that bedtime scrolling on your screens can undermine sleep quality and make it hard to fall asleep and get the rest you need. Whether you are checking Facebook, Instagram or watching Netflix, screens increase our alertness at precisely the wrong time. A Silk Sleep Mask is, therefore, the perfect antidote to this unhealthy habit. By putting on your Silk Sleep Mask the minute you get into bed, you establish a pattern that will stop you from reaching for your screens and allow you to get the relaxed deep sleep you need for your health and wellbeing.
If you find that you wake up in the middle of the night, sleep masks can also help with the desire to constantly check your alarm clock. Continually checking your clock will only increase your worry and stress. A Knüg Silk Sleep Mask encourages you to relax and fall back to sleep.
RETAINS MOISTURE AROUND YOUR EYES
Ordinary eye masks can block out light, but they also can draw away much-needed moisture from your eyes as you sleep. Knüg's Pure Silk Eye Mask has moisturising properties that help to naturally retain moisture. It is the silky-smooth fibres that keep moisture close to your skin as you sleep at night. Silk is a naturally breathable material that allows oxygen to flow freely into the Mask, preventing the fragile skin around the eyes from drying out. This extra moisture can reduce lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. Sleeping with Silk reduces skin dehydration helping to keep your skin naturally hydrated during the night. When your skin becomes dehydrated, collagen, which is a predominantly water-based protein, begins to crack and the collagen strands that have broken produce wrinkles. Besides, the proteins and amino acids rich within Silk lead will enable epidermal cell hydration – a major defence against infection and regulates the amount of moisture released from the skin.
PROTECTS SKIN AND PREVENT PUFFINESS
If you are anxious about crow's feet and wrinkles around your eyes, a Silk Sleep Mask contains natural proteins and essential amino acids, which will aid your skin regeneration as you sleep. The pure silky texture also helps prevent the formation of sleep wrinkles caused by friction with cotton pillowcases. Our Silk Sleep Mask can also help prevent puffiness or bags around your eyes as you awake. This is particularly likely to occur from the lack of sleep, so a 100% pure Mulberry Silk Sleep will help by making sure that you get more rest at night.
SILK FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Sensitive skin loves Silk, especially our 100% pure Mulberry Silk. Conditions like eczema and dermatitis cause dry skin, peeling and redness on your face and around your eyes. Not all eye masks are created equal, and a material like cotton can tug your skin and absorb moisture, causing irritation and unwanted creases. Knüg's pure Silk Eye Masks are very gentle and breathable, protecting the delicate skin around your eyes. The smooth, cool texture of our pure mulberry Silk Eye Masks will feel amazing against your skin. We use only the purest, highest grade, long fibre 22momme Mulberry Silk and use safe, non-toxic dyes.
Due to its antibacterial qualities, Silk can be helpful in cases of acne or eczema. Enzymes in Silk can help prevent imperfections and support healthy skin, letting it breathe. Silk eye masks are also naturally antibacterial, and this can help skin conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis and eczema. The impulse to itch, which can often inflame these conditions, is reduced.
NATURALLY HYPOALLGERNIC Silk's unique fibre structure and the close thread weave ensures it retains very few germs, dust, or allergens.
HELPS YOU TO RELAX
Another advantage of wearing a Knüg Silk Sleep Mask is the added relaxation they provide. By blocking out the light, you create a near 'Zen' state. Your body relaxes, and your anxiety levels decrease, allowing worries to fade. Allowing this total relaxation as this study suggests will help you remain calm and focused on dealing with whatever life throws at you.
