We may have dreaded nap time as a kid, but these days, we'd give anything for a midday snooze — because sleep is scarce. Whether it's one of those nights when we can't stop humming to the A Star Is Born soundtrack or the coffee we had at 4 p.m. is still kicking at 11 p.m., getting a full eight hours is nearly impossible. While you can turn to essential oils or rainforest sounds to help, one of the easiest ways to help create a good sleep environment is by wearing an eye mask.
Your eyes are able to detect light even if your lids are closed, making it tough to get rest if there is any type of sunlight or digital light in your vicinity. An eye mask helps block everything out — including your partner scrolling on Instagram in bed next to you or your neighbor messing with the reading light on a red-eye flight.
With luxe silk options and fun designs, sleeping masks are far from basic nowadays, and we've rounded up some of the best options on the market, ahead.

Bucky 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask
The strongest sunlight — like the beams coming through the car window as you nap during a road trip through Arizona — will have nothing on this innovative pick. It has a contoured shape that allows you to open and close your eyes, but you'll still be shrouded in complete darkness.
