Remarkable Benefits for Sleep Quality

blissy masks are excellent at blocking light

Creates a dark and cool sleep environment

For a good night's sleep, complete darkness is incredibly important. If your sleep environment has even a little bit of light, this can make it harder to fall asleep. Wearing a sleep mask blocks external light and creates total darkness, so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

The ideal sleep environment is both dark and cool. For restful sleep, put on a silk eye mask to block light and feel a nice cool sensation on your face. Did you know that Blissy sleep masks have a cooling and calming effect on your body temperature? These sleep masks help regulate your temperature for peaceful sleep.

Blissy sleep masks aren't just for at night. You can wear one while taking micro naps to feel refreshed.

If you have kids, keep in mind that these sleep masks can help them sleep like a baby too! Read more about Blissy Junior's sleep masks for kids.

Science says "yes!" to sleep masks for deeper sleep

Research studies back up claims that sleep mask wearers have better sleep quality since they fall into deeper sleep. Studies also show that a bedroom that's cool and dark promotes healthier sleep.

A 2017 review by sleep experts published in Energy and Buildings found that a comfortable thermal environment that's not too hot or cold is needed for good-quality sleep. A 2023 study published in Sleep found that wearing an eye mask during sleep led to better alertness and episodic memory the following day.

With so many benefits that improve sleep, these masks are great for yourself and any nappers in your life. In fact, they made the list of our top gifts for people who love to nap. Know someone who has trouble falling asleep? Get them a Blissy silk mask!

Unparalleled Skin Health Advantages

a pure silk mask can help reduce dark circles

Reduces friction

Blissy silk sleep masks help boost your skin health for a more radiant appearance. How does putting on a silk sleep mask help your skin?

Silk has a smooth, light texture that doesn't tug on your skin when you move in your sleep. This reduced friction helps keep your skin soft and lowers the risk of sleep creases and fine lines.

The soothing fit of the best sleep mask around your eyes won't leave lines either thanks to silk's softness and friction-reducing qualities. Find out more about the benefits of silk sleep masks for your eyes.

Prevents wrinkles

Having a silk eye mask on at night helps reduce your risk of developing wrinkles. Silk has anti-aging effects thanks to the nourishing proteins it contains (sericin and fibroin). These effects help protect your skin from damage that ages it, such as UV exposure. Using a silk eye mask from Blissy can help keep your skin looking youthful and beautiful.

Prevents skin irritation

The best silk sleep masks have another important skin benefit, especially if you have sensitive skin. This material helps prevent skin irritation. Wearing an eye mask made from other materials, such as synthetic ones, might bother your skin and increase your risk of dark circles under your eyes. 

Silk has moisture-wicking properties, which help keep your eye mask and strap dry from sweat as you sleep. At the same time, this fabric also helps your skin retain moisture, preventing dryness and lowering the risk of flare-ups if you have eczema or another skin condition. Find out more about how silk sleep masks reduce dark circles too!

Has hypoallergenic properties

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, so you don't have to worry about allergic reactions or irritated skin while wearing a silk eye mask. These masks don't trigger redness, itchy eyes, and other symptoms in people with allergies or sensitive skin. They are incredibly soothing and safe for all skin types.

Astonishing Hair Health Perks

Blissy masks are just as good for your hair as they are for your skin. Wearing these masks to bed means you can look forward to having shiny, healthy hair. What makes these the best silk sleep masks for hair?

Prevents frizz and hair breakage

Blissy sleep masks are made from the finest quality silk, known as mulberry silk. Compared to other sleep masks, the strap that wraps around your head helps keep your hair soft and smooth. Silk's soft, smooth surface protects your hair from breakage, leaving it healthy.

You may worry that wearing a sleep mask will mess up your hair and make it frizzy in the morning, but that won't happen with a Blissy Sleep Mask. Blissy's silk texture helps prevent frizz. This can make your hair easier to style in the morning!

Won't leave creases or dents in your hair

Waking up with dents or creases in your hair can make for an unpleasant start to your day. With a Blissy sleep mask on, you won't have to worry about this. These masks come with an adjustable elastic strap that fits most heads comfortably and won't dent or crease your hair.

For even better results, pair your sleep mask with a Blissy Silk Scrunchie, so your hair looks beautiful when you wake up. Blissy has different styles of scrunchies available, including regular, skinny, and oversized.

These silk hair accessories, which also prevent frizz and retain moisture, come in many colors and designs, from neutral tones to tie-dye. Match your sleep mask with a new scrunchie for a stylish look!

A Splendid Fusion of Comfort and Luxury

ultra-comfortable around the nose bridge and eyes

Choosing a silk sleep mask means finding one that fits your head comfortably. Some sleep masks might feel too snug around your head, while others might slip off at night if they're too loose. Blissy masks offer a perfect fit for all head sizes.

The elastic band on these masks means that they conform to your head comfortably without any Velcro closure to get stuck in your hair. This helps ensure a comfortable fit that isn't too snug or loose, so you can enjoy a restful sleep.

The Pinnacle of Silk Quality and Comfort Cushioning

Blissy silk masks have a soft, luxurious texture that feels great on your skin. These masks apply extremely gentle pressure to your face and eyes, which can help you fall asleep more comfortably. The cushioning in these masks makes them feel even softer on your skin.

Why do these mulberry silk eye masks have such a luxurious feel? Because they are made with the softest kind of pure silk available. It's made from fine threads from the cocoons of Bombyx mori silkworms. These ultra-soft silk threads are then tightly woven together to create Blissy silk masks and our other silk products.

Despite its delicate softness, Blissy Sleep Masks are not fragile. Blissy's mulberry silk products, while luxuriously gentle, are incredibly resilient and designed to stand the test of time. Crafted meticulously, these masks offer an enduring silk experience, ensuring that you can enjoy their remarkable benefits and unrivaled comfort night after night.

Helps create a relaxing bedtime routine

Putting on a Blissy Silk Sleep Mask at bedtime can be part of a soothing bedtime ritual that helps you sleep. Once your bedroom is cool, quiet, and cozy, slipping on the best silk mask can help you drift off to sleep in total darkness. Combine a good sleep environment with healthy sleep hygiene for even more restful sleep!

Unrivaled Travel Advantages

A versatile travel accessory

Have an upcoming trip or travel often? Make your trips more relaxing and restful with a Blissy sleep mask. These silk masks can help ensure that you sleep comfortably, no matter where you are. From hotel stays for business trips to exotic vacation accommodations, having a Blissy Sleep Mask on can help you fall fast asleep.

Unwinding after a day full of business meetings or relaxing after spending hours sightseeing? Your Blissy silk sleep mask offers the perfect way to create a soothing environment for a great night's sleep during your trip.

Flying to your destination? Slip on a silk sleep mask on your red-eye flight or overseas flight, so you can arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to go! Even if you're sitting near a window, your silk sleep mask will block outside light.

Your sleep mask can also come in handy if you'll be a passenger during a road trip. Wearing a sleep mask can help block out unwanted light, so you can rest until it's your turn to take the wheel (or until the next rest stop)!

Includes travel bag for your convenience

Carry your Blissy silk eye mask in style! Every silk eye mask comes with a matching silk travel bag. Place your mask in its matching bag, and you'll have a convenient way to keep it safe in your overnight bag. These travel bags easily open and close, so you can take your sleep mask out whenever you need it.

Easy Care for Your Silken Treasure

most masks made of silk cannot be machine washed, unlike blissy

Taking care of your Blissy maskis a simple and hassle-free process. Despite their delicate feel, they are durable enough to be machine washed. Just make sure to use a gentle detergent, such as Blissy Wash, and select the delicate cycle on your machine. For additional protection during washing, we recommend placing the mask inside a mesh wash bag. Finally, to maintain the mask's optimal quality, air-dry it instead of using a dryer.

Illuminating Comparisons and Real-Life Testimonials

Nothing compares to a silk eye mask

Is a satin sleep mask just as good as a silk one? How about cotton or nylon? Other sleep mask materials might feel soft, but they don't offer silk sleep mask benefits. Keep in mind that silk is a natural material with tons of beneficial qualities, from retaining moisture to cooling effects.

Satin sleep masks have a similar shine, but they're made of synthetic material. Don't let the shininess and softness fool you. Satin masks won't help you stay cool during the night. They also won't help your skin retain moisture or keep your hair from getting frizzy.

Cotton, nylon, and other sleep mask materials fall into the same boat as satin. These materials don't reduce friction on your skin cells. They're not hypoallergenic either, which can lead to problems if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
