The Best Sleep Masks I’ve Found For Blocking Out Light
Using a good sleep mask is an effective way to block out light when you can’t control the source. And specially designed relaxation sleep masks can help relieve the feeling of pressure and tiredness after a long day.
Eye masks, also known as sleep masks, are an affordable, natural way to help us get to sleep faster. Sleep masks are typically made from fabric that is intended to cover both eyes. The mask keeps out incoming light to help induce a state of pure darkness.
The Benefits of Using Sleep Masks
The first advantage of wearing a sleep mask is that it blocks light. The two biggest distractions from sleep are noise and light. Light, even moonlight, can keep people from reaching a deep and restful sleep. A sleep mask can block out the obvious sources of light, like lamps and televisions. Sleep masks also block natural light like the the sun and moon. Small LED lights on my alarm clock also keeps me awake at night!
Using Sleep Masks Can Protect Your Eyes from Skin Damage
Another benefit is that a sleep mask can actually help to protect the skin around your eyes from damage while you sleep. It may seem like a minor issue, but wearing a sleep mask could pay off in this tangible way in the long run. While sleeping, many people tend to push the side or front of their faces into their pillow or mattress. This may only be done for part of the night, but it can still leave an imprint on your skin from the wrinkles in your sheets or pillows. Those imprints, especially because they can stay on your face for hours, can eventually cause wrinkles and other damage to the skin on your face.
I’ve tried and tested a wide range of eye masks over the last few months, both while trying to sleep and purely for relaxation.
