A Pure Silk Sleep mask is the best way to shut out the light and the stresses and worries of the day. Silk is gentle to wear and protects and hydrates the delicate skin around the eyes. It’s less absorbent than other materials, so your eye and face creams remain on your skin. And if other eye masks make you feel too hot, silk naturally keeps its temperature even. You’ll go to sleep feeling relaxed and comfortable – and wake up feeling refreshed and revitalised. Lightweight and gentle on the skin, a Pure Silk Sleep Mask is the perfect accompaniment to one of our luxurious Mulberry Silk Pillowcases. Reducing friction and helping your skin stay smooth and wrinkle-free. You can also combine your silk sleep mask with a Beyond Ordinary Mulberry Pure Silk Hair Wrap. It will protect your hair overnight to give you strong, healthy, shiny tresses free of frizz and tangles.
But a mask that makes you sweat and absorbs the oil and make-up on your face is guaranteed to cause skin problems. ‘Maskne’ is real – it’s a combination of acne and skin irritation that’s comes from wearing a face mask.
So, if we have to wear a mask we may as well wear one that protects our skin as well as the NHS and the people around us. Silk is gentle and hypoallergenic so it’s the best material to wear next to sensitive skin and skin that’s prone to allergic reactions. Silk is also naturally anti-microbial – it keeps bacteria at bay and stops your pores from getting clogged.
And silk is breathable. Not only does it allow our skin to stay cleaner and healthier, but it also allows us to breathe naturally without trapping our hot breath or making us feel like we’re being stifled. Silk face masks are cool, lightweight – and they actually look good!
Our silk face masks come in a range of colours to suit your style, mood and outfit. And all Beyond Ordinary face masks are made from Mulberry silk, the finest silk you can buy.
Why Mulberry Silk?
Pure mulberry silk differs from traditional silk because it doesn't contain any synthetic components or dyes. It's also more robust than other silk types because it doesn't have any breakable or synthetic fibres. Furthermore, Mulberry silk is naturally hypoallergenic and can be completely biodegradable with the proper care.
Are Silk Face Masks washable?
Silk Face Masks are easy to care for, and they can be washed by hand many times before you need to consider replacing them, and you will be able to continue using them for many months without any trouble.
Silk Face Mask versus Satin Face Mask?
The main difference between a Satin Face Mask and a Silk Face Mask is how they are made. Satin face masks are usually less expensive and have smaller holes than silk face masks, so they don't breathe as well. Satin is also a fabric that comes from silk, but it's not 100% silk.
Silk Face Masks are permeable to oxygen and moisture, which means they don't suffocate your skin; they are also hypoallergenic, which means they won't cause acne or any other type of rash.
What exactly is Maskne?
When the region of the face that comes into constant contact with a face mask develops acne, this is known as maskne. Despite having existed since the advent of therapeutic face masks, maskne is becoming more and more well-known due to the considerable rise in mask-wearing across all sectors of society.
