5 Reasons why you NEED a sleep mask!
Most of us already know the importance of getting a good night sleep.
Yet more than half (51%) of adults worldwide report they get less sleep than they need on an average night (according to Princess Cruises' ninth annual Relaxation Report).
Though for many people, the lack of sleep isn’t by choice—it’s because we have trouble falling asleep & staying asleep.
Scientific evidence suggests that sleep masks, which cover your eyes while you sleep to block out ambient light, can help you wake up feeling more well rested, rejuvenated and ready to seize the day like the #AashiAngel you are!
Experts recommend eye masks to ease certain painful conditions, such as migraines & dry eyes. Sleep masks can also offer cosmetic benefits, protecting the skin around the eyes and preventing puffiness.
If you’re concerned about keeping your skin in the best shape possible while asleep, Debra Jaliman, MD, a dermatologist based in New York City, recommends opting for a silk eye mask.
“The material is gentler on the skin and will prevent tugging or sleep lines around the delicate eye area,” Dr. Jaliman tells Health, adding that “the silk fibers will absorb significantly less of your face and eye cream.”
If you're in the market for a new eye mask to wear while drifting into a deep slumber, we have just the one for you!
The Aashi Beauty sleep mask is made from smooth silk fibers that can help reduce friction or stretching on the eye area, & most importantly, it feels great on your skin!
The Benefits of a Silk Sleep Mask
1. Blocks out Light
Sleep masks solve any problems related to intrusive light, granting the total darkness you deserve for great sleep! By sitting directly over your eyes, they can create a pitch-black environment even in the brightest of bedrooms.
2. Minimizes Distractions
Who doesn't love scrolling through Instagram before bed?! We get it! But we often spend more time on digital activities than intended, finally crashing long after we intended to head to bed. By putting on a sleep mask as soon as you jump into bed you set a physical boundary between you & that one last email you have to check.
If you wake up in the middle of the night, sleep masks can also aid in another struggle: the urge to check your alarm clock.
3. Protects your Skin & Prevents Puffiness
When you sleep without a mask in place, contact with your pillow can stretch the skin surrounding your eyes. By using a Silk Sleep Mask you ensure a quality, luxury sleep.
Silk has a long list of benefits - the material is both antibacterial & hypoallergenic. It will also retain heat in cold weather while excess heat is expelled in warm weather. Say hello to cool under eyes every morning!
4. Treats Dry Eyes
Sleep masks provide a protective cocoon as you sleep, allowing you to wake without irritation. Allergy sufferers will be glad to hear that our Silk Sleep Mask is also hypoallergenic!
5. Mitigates Migraines
Light sensitivity is a common feature of chronic migraines – and particularly problematic if they strike during daylight. Your mask will ensure that light doesn’t interfere with your recovery.
Because of our Pure Silk material, the sleep mask feels cool to the touch and will provide a bit of relief. The cool masks also work wonders for hangovers & minor headaches!

Once you’ve purchased your sleep mask, settle in for a period of adjustment. If you haven’t used one before, the experience of having your eyes covered could be uncomfortable at first.
Give yourself at least a week with the sleep mask, wearing it on a consistent basis.
We spend 1/3 of our whole lives sleeping - so why not do it right?
Come over to the cool side & wake up feeling well rested, rejuvenated and ready to seize the day like the Aashi Angel (def: smiling angel) you are!
