ALASKA BEAR® – Natural Silk Sleep Mask Review
In pitch darkness the body starts actively producing melatonin, a hormone that helps it respond to the inner sleep clock. If there is even an ounce of light, your body could stay switched on as though it was day.
Children only need to close their eyes to fall asleep. Most adults, at least 20 million Americans, cannot do that. They suffer some form of sleeping disorder. A chunk of them, cannot seem to have their bodies activate melatonin. The results? They stay awake for long hours. Distracted sleep cycles lead to sluggishness throughout the day. It could explain the copious amounts of coffee taken.
This eye mask from Alaska Bear is the answer for those who cannot sleep with light seeping through.
An Overview of ALASKA BEAR® – Natural Silk Sleep Mask
- Comfortable Silky Material
It is made of 19% mulberry silk, which apart from being incredibly soft and visually appealing, is breathable. This quality keeps out dry air while keeping the eye area well aerated for the hot season. The eye mask will need washing (of course), and silk is quite easy to launder. Laundry Tip: If you hand wash this eye mask, use a mild shampoo as most detergents are quite harsh.
- Lightweight and Effective
It is super light, weighing in at 2 ounces. It is light enough to carry wherever you go. If you think this silk eye mask’s lightweight makes it unable to block light, think again. It blocks out all light, even with your eyes wide open and the lights on. This property makes it ideal for those who can hardly sleep with the lights on, even if it is light seeping through the curtain from another room. It covers almost half the face, so you can imagine how effective it is.
- Easy, Adjustable Strap
It has an adjustable strap which, I should mention, is silky and comfortable on the head. The strap is not restrictive, so you will not feel as though the back of your head is held captive. If you suffer from migraines, this eye mask is your best bet; apart from the strap being adjustable, the mask will protect your eyes from the stabbing pain that migraines bring. You have two options. You could get the one with a single strap of reasonable thickness, or one with double straps. The double-strapped one undoubtedly offers more cover and does not come out even through numerous turns and tosses.
- The Best Price
With all its great qualities, this mask sells for under $10. It is surprising that it could retail so cheaply, seeing that it is the ideal product for sleeping. If you are still racking your brain figuring out what gift to buy someone who has trouble falling asleep, your problem is solved. This simple, yet amazing mask could be the ideal present.
One thing to watch out for: a little light may seep through the nose area, especially when using the single-strapped eye mask.
Alaska bear eye mask is ideal for everyone; whether you sleep on your back, or on your side. No amount of tossing and turning will shift it off your face, thanks to the strap. Trust me, sleeping will become so sweet that you’ll dread waking up.
