There are a lot of new, high-tech sleep gadgets on the market right now.
From wearables to fancy lights to mattress pad sensors and soothing white noise, there are a lot of products to choose from.
But what if all you need to get those elusive Zzz’s is a little piece of fabric covering your eyes?
Sure, sleep masks aren’t anything new or buzzworthy, but this simple solution can be just what you need to get your requisite shut-eye.
They may help you maintain your natural sleep cycles and catch up on some very important beauty sleep.
How sleep masks work
Eye masks or sleep masks work by blocking out artificial light.
“Light, especially at night, can disrupt our internal biological ‘clock’ that helps to regulate our sleep-wake patterns,” says Dr. Troxel, a senior behavioral scientist at the RAND Corporation.
Exposure to artificial light suppresses melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone, which can lead to sleeping issues or disorders such as insomnia.
“Melatonin’s job is to signal to the brain that it is time to get sleepy, so light exposure, particularly at night, sends the wrong signal to the brain, which can profoundly disrupt one’s ability to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep,” Troxel explains.
Depending on where you live, this artificial light can include streetlights, ambient lights in the bedroom (such as light from a clock), and the biggest culprit for disrupted sleep: blue light from phones and electronic devices.
Intrusive light can result in shallower periods of sleep.
Eye masks help to block out this artificial light by acting as a shield. They realign your body’s internal body clock with the rising and setting of the sun.

2. How about the shading effect of the sleep mask?
Our eye mask is designed with a 3D three-dimensional structure, and an adjustable light barrier design is added to the bridge of the nose, which fits the curve of the face in all directions, avoids light leakage, and allows you can sleep well even you lie in the sun
3. Will wearing your blindfolds put pressure on my eyes?
No, our eye mask uses a 3D structure with zero pressure design, allowing you to easily open your eyes while wearing the eye mask, your eyes will not receive any pressure damage from our sleep mask, including your eyelashes.

Warm tip: the eye mask should be washed by hand with a neutral detergent. It is easy to be damaged after machine washing. It should be dried in the shade
