Sleep evading you? These 7 silk eye masks might just be the answer to your dreams
The ultimate beauty sleep hack

There are a few things we’d love to get more of in this life: an extra glass of wine, puppy cuddles, and (most importantly) sleep.
You could totally go the extra mile and invest in blackout curtains, a white noise machine and a qualified sleep therapist. But we think there’s far more cache in dabbling in less exxy options such as a silk eye mask (and of course, matching silk pillowcases).
Silk eye masks are an obvious winner when it comes to complete absolution from sleep-interrupting light. Plus, they boast hypoallergenic properties and skin care benefits to boot thanks to the luxurious fabric’s gentle touch, which helps to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimises moisture loss in the skin too.
Here are seven silk eye masks that’ll make your next siesta feel like a fiesta.
Frenchie Le Masque
Made from 100 per cent waterproof and natural mulberry long fibre silk, this lustrous lady is made for maximum comfort with an elasticated headband for optimum fit. Enjoy light deprivation for a good night's sleep (or a heightened sensory experience for a spicy rendezvous between the sheets).
