1. BLOCKS OUT THE LIGHT
Our circadian rhythm is a biological process that mainly responds to light and dark. It is otherwise known as your sleep-wake pattern, which changes after a 24-hour cycle. Sleeping experts also agree that a dark environment is vital to falling asleep faster and having a good night’s rest.
Nowadays, we are exposed to more artificial blue light than when technology was not yet the trend. So, your precious phone and other technological devices can significantly impact your sleeping patterns!
Eye masks, usually used for sleeping, can block out the extra light that may interfere with your good night’s rest. Therefore, weighted eye masks are not only a viable choice for the night-time, but they can also block out natural light, so you can sleep anywhere you go, even while travelling.
2. IT HELPS YOU FALL ASLEEP FASTER
Falling asleep fast is a talent, and we would love to get our hands on the secret behind being able to fall asleep the moment you close your eyes. Say goodbye to counting sheep while trying to sleep because weighted eye masks, or eye masks in general, help you fall asleep even faster.
For example, simulated studies have shown that by using sleep masks, especially if paired with earplugs, people were able to fall asleep faster. This is because they block out the light and also any possible distractions that can deter you from your goal of falling asleep.
Weighted eye masks also provide a soothing effect similar to a weighted blanket. In addition, they will help calm your sleep anxiety and signal your brain that it is bedtime.

CAN EYE MASKS RELIEVE UNDER-THE-EYE BAGS AND DARK CIRCLES?
Did you know?
Our eye pillows/masks can provide hot or cold targeted relief, either by microwaving or placing them in the fridge or freezer, which will ease tension, headaches, and minor pains. They soothe the entire eye area, which is often the cause of a migraine or headache. We recommend cooling your mask in summer and heating it in winter. This will ensure the most effective approach for targeted relief.
In summary, there are many benefits to be gained by sleeping with a weighted eye mask. They can relieve headaches, minimise stress, enhance creativity, and potentially aid in weight reduction by promoting deep sleep.
