Sleep well at any time of day with a sun & moon sleep mask ($60 to $100). Designer Tiffany Wollman says that with each mask she hopes to encourage relaxation, better sleep and a deeper inner connection to oneself and to nature. To do this, Wollman emphasizes the use of natural materials such as organic lavender and flax. She makes each mask by hand — for the coloured masks she even hand-dyes the 100-per cent silk charmeuse using plant-based dyes (the black masks are not hand-dyed). Silk is thought to help prevent fine facial lines and keep skin hydrated for a true “beauty sleep.” Some of the masks are also embellished with quartz crystals and amethyst gemstones, said to have healing properties for the body that include improving energy and enhancing the dream state.
