Nobody wants to have tired peepers. Not only do your eyes get red and blurry but your frames will accentuate every little line and make those blood shot orbs even more pronounced. One way to get plenty of rest is to use a sleep mask. Here in New York, there is a lot of light pollution. They don’t call it The City that Never Sleeps for nothing. A sleep mask can help block out all the extra light from your neighbors, so your brain knows it’s time to turn off. Even if you don’t live in a metropolitan city, they are quite comfy and can help ward off middle of the night wake ups when your significant other gets up to go to the loo and has to turn on the light. You can also use them when traveling, whether on the plane or if the hotel lacks Black Out Curtains.
They come in a myriad of colors and playful graphics as well as a great range of prices. Be sure to find one that is super soft, preferably a silk or satin that won’t scratch or irritate the skin around your eyes. You can also choose between masks that lay directly on your eyes or ones with an eye cavity. I find the light pressure to my eyelids very soothing but it can be bothersome to others, so try them out and see which one works best for you.
Be sure to let me know what you think!
