Redecorating your bedroom in relaxing colors, bringing in light-blocking curtains, installing a lavender diffuser, and buying an ultra-comfortable mattress are all ways to ensure a better night's sleep. However, Oprah Winfrey recommends an even easier, and more affordable product for achieving better sleep: a weighted silk eye mask.
Before rearranging all of your bedroom decor, consider if a lower price-point option like this could work for you. Oprah says, 'Sleeping with a mask is life-changing—I cannot tell you how much the quality of my sleep has improved! This weighted 100 percent silk one stays down and doesn’t let even a pinch of light in.' Could a weighted mask improve your sleep? It might depend on which one.
On Oprah's Favorite Things 2023 List, the talk show host recommends the weighted Asutra Eye Pillow. This special mask has all-natural ingredients for a strikingly calming effect that can work just as well as relaxing bedroom decor.
This weighted mask made of 100% silk guarantees a relaxing and luxurious sleep experience and is filled with lavender for an added tranquil vibe. Endorsed by the iconic likes of Oprah Winfrey and Venus Williams, the mask is a steal at $20.
There are many things to love about this Oprah-approved mask First, the pillow is filled with lavender and flax. This gives the mask a comforting weight that can help you feel relaxed, just think of the effect of a weighted blanket for anxiety. Further, these scented materials, especially dry lavender can inspire a sense of tranquility and relaxation.
We also love that the eye pillow is made of 100% silk. Sleeping on silk by wearing an eye mask or switching to a silk pillowcase has incredible effects on beauty and sleep. It can help to keep hair and skin moisturized and minimize wrinkles and frizz. The super soft material is also very breathable, which can help prevent overheating in the night.
Furthermore, as if Oprah's endorsement wasn't enough, pro tennis player and star interior designer Venus Williams also swears by the Asutra mask. If you choose to wear this mask to improve your sleep, you're in good company.
Sometimes, the best solutions are the most simple. Oprah certainly thinks so. Before you redesign your entire bedroom to make it better for sleep, consider if this $20 hack might be right for you.
