Five of the best eye masks

Finding it hard to sleep when it's light at 4am? Banish insomnia in style with these chic eyemasks. Zzzzzz.

We love balmy, endless summer days as much as the next person but the downside is that it’s hard to sleep when the dawn chorus arrives so crazily early.

The answer, we’ve discovered this summer, is a light-blocking sleep mask (important tip: they also work on children too, my daughter swears by her ‘Pug’ version).

They’re also brilliant for camping trips (has anyone throughout history ever slept well in a tent?), long haul flights and ignoring small whiny children. Here are five of the best. And relaaax.

Jessica Russell Flint

We're a little bit in love with this British illustrator/designer with a keen eye for kitsch and colour. As well as these vibrant silk alphabet masks, she also does silk pillowcases - beauty editors swear by them for keeping skin and hair hydrated while you sleep.

Eyelash extensions? Fear not, this palm-print steal is cleverly moulded to leave space around the eyes, so it doesn't flatten your lashes. Clever!
