Did you know sleep eyes masks are good for your skin?

Posted by Sally Birch on

As we get older, more and more of us will worry about our skin and what we can do to keep it looking as flawless as possible. After years of sun exposure, however, our skin naturally becomes susceptible to wrinkles, dryness and conditions. This is particularly true around the eyes.

Though we can never completely eradicate wrinkles and the signs of ageing, unless we choose a cosmetic pathway, many products can make all the difference to the prevalence of skin changes. One of these, which may be a surprise to you, is sleep eye masks. 

How do they do it? Well, when you choose sleep eye masks made from the best materials, like my designer silk sleep eye mask collection, the smooth qualities of silk do the following: 

Sleep eye masks help prevent creasing 

During our sleep, we toss and turn. As we move our face across our pillow and sheets, it naturally causes our skin to crease. This won't be as immediately noticeable on the skin around our arms, neck and legs. But, as the skin around the eyes is much more delicate, this can quickly transform into permanent wrinkles. 

Wearing a sleep eye mask can reduce the tugging on the skin. Though it's not a definite way to eradicate wrinkles forever, it's a great way to prevent how quickly they form. This can stop premature ageing. 

Silk products, like all designer accessories in my range, also contain natural amino acids that can soothe the skin. They're ideal for those who have dry skin or inflammatory conditions such as eczema. 


Silk sleep eye masks moisturise the skin 

Sounds crazy right? As mentioned above, silk contains amino acids which are great for the skin. On top of this, the way silk is woven; particularly that of Hermès quality, has a dense, smooth fibre texture. These fibres can keep moisture closer to your skin, mainly around the eyes. This works as a natural, overnight moisturiser without the need for excess creams.

Wearing a silk sleep mask overnight for just a few days can improve your skin's natural moisture. This can reduce dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. All in all, a silk mask will give great boosts to your complexion. 

Sleep eye masks prevent your pillow and sheets from absorbing your skincare routine 

Unless you use silk ben linen all around, cotton fabrics are renowned for absorbing moisturisers and skincare products. Essentially, this means your skincare routine is rendered useless if you don't give your product enough time to settle in before you turn in for the night. 

To prevent your pillow and sheets from absorbing your skincare; a silk eye mask can help. As it also benefits moisture, it can ensure the pores open up enough for your skin to feel the benefits of your routine.
