Pai has been recognised again this week! Thank you to Zest magazine for naming our Silk Sleep Mask the best aid for getting a good night’s kip*.
As we’ve said all along, the body needs total darkness to maximise production of the sleep chemical melatonin.
‘According to new research, sleeping in anything less than complete darkness can trigger the blues, with even a dim light in your bedroom potentially interfering with the chemical structure of your brain. So, while that chink of light might help you to wake up on dark mornings, it could also be casting a shadow on your mood.’
‘An eye mask will block out excess light, ensuring you get a good night’s sleep. Try this silk one with lavender, £25 from Pai Skincare, for an extra soothing snooze.’
Our eye mask is great for long haul travel too. Unlike the flimsy masks you get free from airlines, our eye mask is made from luxurious silk. Its cotton velvet lining blocks out 100% of light and ensures maximum comfort.
The mask contains real lavender pods which have a calming soporific effect – ideal for those suffering with insomnia or anxiety.
Celebrity sleeping beauties such as Catherine-Zeta-Jones and Ralph Fiennes have already made our Silk Eye Mask part of their nightly routine, and we think you should too!
*For our non-UK readers, the Pai dictionary defines ‘kip’ as: shut-eye, snooze, forty winks, catching z’s, nap, slumber, doze, siesta, or bo-peep…..SLEEP.
It’s called beauty sleep for a reason – look out for next week’s blog on the difference that sleeping soundly can make to your skin.
