When you’re in your bedroom, you close the curtains and turn off the lights before you climb into bed. When you’re on a long flight, you can count on the crew to dim the lights while you pull down the cover on the window next to your seat.
So why would you need a sleep mask? What advantages does travel accessories offer? Here are three you need to know:
1) A sleep mask blocks out all of the light around you. Which includes the bit of light that pops through the bedroom curtain when a car drives by and the light in the hall outside that leaks under the bedroom door. Or the light which shines from the screen of your fellow passenger’s smartphone and that flight attendant alert light on the ceiling in front of you.
Why does it matter? Research shows that sleeping in total darkness increases your body’s ability to produce melatonin. And high levels of melatonin reduce your risk of breast or colorectal cancer. Your body produces its highest level of melatonin between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., so try to be asleep (with your sleep mask on) by then.
2) A sleeping mask also can help you keep your face fresh while you’re sleeping. You can take that half-hour nap without worrying that you’ll wake up looking worn and tired. You’ll be able to bounce out of bed super early to race to the airport with a smile.
3) A sleep mask with the right fabric could help you sleep better. Our HappyLuxe Sleep Mask, for example, is made of luxurious MicroModal fabric. That fabric is two times softer than cotton and very breathable. It also is sustainable, as it is made from beech trees. In other words, you will fall asleep in an environmentally friendly mood.
Consider the HappyLuxe Escape Sleep Mask. It not only is soft and silky smooth, it’s lightweight, meaning this travel accessory will be comfortable and portable in any travel bag.
A travel product that benefits your health, your sleep, the environment, and your good looks. (And is easy to pack!)
