What are the benefits of sleep masks?

A 100% blackout sleep mask, like OwlzzZ, provides total darkness, which is important because darkness triggers the body’s natural circadian rhythm and “affects the production of melatonin, an essential sleep-promoting hormone,” according to the Sleep Foundation. This means if you cover your eyes in total darkness, you should be able to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and reach the kind of deep REM sleep that should leave you feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to conquer your day.

Falling asleep is only half the battle, though. You also need to stay asleep. The Sleep Foundation says, “Light exposure at night can hinder transitions between sleep cycles, reducing the quality of sleep10. Too much light can cause repeated awakenings, interrupting the sleep cycle and reducing time spent in deeper, more restorative sleep stages.”

You may not even realize how much light exposure is negatively affecting your sleep quality if the light doesn't wake you up enough to remember it later. Common sources of light exposure during sleep include sleeping: with a partner who goes to sleep after or wakes up before you, in a place where the sun rises too early, security lights on a motion sensor or periodic timer, or those little power lights that are always glowing on electronics and smoke detectors. OwlzzZ sleep eye mask greatly reduces the possibility of you noticing any lights while you’re asleep, thus increasing your chances of achieving a very deep, high quality sleep.

High quality sleep recharges both your body and your immune system, which keeps you healthy. “Other than air and water, nothing is more important to immune function than sleep,” notes Michael J. Breus, PhD, a sleep specialist and clinical psychologist. “Without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly. This can impair your abilities to concentrate, think clearly, and process memories,” says the Sleep Foundation

In other words, good quality sleep can put you at your peak physical and mental performance. This is why we say, "A good night’s sleep can improve your whole day, but a great sleep every night can change your whole life!™” And that is why we set out to make the best blackout sleep mask, OwlzzZ.

Are sleep masks good or bad for you?

Sleep masks can be very good for you for all of the reasons mentioned in the section above. However, if you have had recent surgery or have any medical conditions, it is best to ask your doctor if OwlzzZ Sleep Mask may be good for you.
