Do you really need a sleep mask? If you’ve been experiencing restless nights and fatigue ridden days, the simple answer is yes. Instead of relying on drugs or alcohol that make the problem worse, the ultimate, long term solution is simple — eliminate artificial lighting.
Turning off your lights before bedtime isn’t enough. Because we’re bombarded with artificial light exposure throughout the day from our electronic devices, our eyes are extremely sensitive to light at night (LAN). This causes even the slightest light source to lower our melatonin and spike cortisol production, making falling asleep difficult and waking up during night common.
Artificial light penetrates your eyes, even when you close them tightly. And the consequences aren’t pretty. Research from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that insufficient sleep can lead to wrinkles, weight gain, and even cancer.
What's the solution? Removing ALL sources of light during your sleep! This is possible with a sleep mask, but as you may know, not just any sleep mask will do. Before you rush off to buy the cheapest eye mask you can find, let us explain why the Swanwick® Sleep Mask made with 100% silk is worth every penny, and the best sleep mask on the market.
Because silk slides softly across a surface, it won't pull or tug at your skin. This means less lines and marks across your face during rest.
Unlike cotton or linen, silk is a non-absorbent fabric that won't deplete your moisture levels or absorb night serums and creams.
Silk's naturally smooth surface prevents your hair from tangling, knotting, and breaking. It also stimulates hydration, yet lowers the chance of waking up with greasy hair due to its ability to reduce oil production.
Silk does not conduct heat (or static electricity) like other fibers. Instead, it locks in heat when it's cold and sheds redundant heat when it's hot, keeping your skin cool during summer and warm in the winter.
The protein structure of silk works against dirt, mold, and other odor causing compounds. Other fabrics of lesser-quality lose their properties over time as they gather stains and smells. But, not silk!
Sick and tired of replacing cheap sleep masks because they fall apart? Inexpensive masks aren’t made to last, so buying them actually costs you more in the long run. Even worse, poor-quality masks irritate your eyes, put too much pressure on your head, and overall make sleeping uncomfortable.
Saving a few bucks for a subpar product isn’t worth it. Sleeping poorly leads to a domino-like effect of negative side effects including memory loss, drastic mood swings, and trouble concentrating.
By not getting a good night sleep you put your health at risk, too. High blood pressure, weakened immunity, and diabetes have all been associated with sleep deprivation. Increased cortisol caused by lack of sleep spikes your appetite, which leads to weight gain and a lower sex drive.
Heart disease and even breast cancer have been linked to frequent exposure to LAN.
A 10-year study found that a sample group of over 1,670 women exposed to higher intensity light in their sleeping environment had 22% higher odds of developing breast cancer than those spending their nights in total darkness. The researchers blamed it on hormone disruption caused by melatonin suppression.
If you agree quality matters, we're here to help. Made with 100% non-toxic pure silk that feels amazing on your skin,the Swanwick Silk Sleep Mask helps you achieve comfortable, luxurious shut-eye every night. This is the ultimate eye mask to achieve the deep sleep you deserve.
Here’s the bottom line: if you want to protect your health (and your sanity), you don’t need more sleep. You need better sleep — which means more darkness. When it comes to investing in a sleep mask, it’s simply not worth it to go for the cheapest eye masks available.
