We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping.

Adults should aim to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night, and establishing a consistent sleep schedule can help ensure that we're getting enough quality rest.

The quality of our sleep matters as much as the quantity because this is the time when your body repairs itself and epidermal + muscle recovery happens at a cellular level. 

Our circadian rhythm, also known as our body's internal clock regulates our sleep-wake patterns.

Exposure to light plays a significant role in regulating this rhythm and helps our internal body clock to figure out whether it's time to be asleep or awake.

At night, if there is exposure to light then your circadian rhythm signals to the brain that it is time to be awake which disrupts the sleep cycle by suppressing important sleep promoting hormones like Melatonin.

Sleep Eye Masks promote better sleep by blocking light. In the absence of light, the brain send a signal to the body indicating it's time to rest. Using a comfortable eye mask as part of a soothing sleep routine has been known to facilitate better quality sleep.

Studies have shown that darker sleep settings leads to better REM sleep as well as elevated melatonin levels. Both have been linked to better, uninterrupted sleep and lower stress levels.

The darker it is, more melatonin is produced which internally signals to your brain that it is time to rest and pushes us toward deeper, better quality sleep = optimal epidermal & muscle recovery.

In addition to regulating our melatonin levels, sleeping in complete darkness has several other health benefits that allow us to function optimally when awake. The better sleep we get, the better our brain can retain and process information and the better our body can repair itself and clear toxins. 

Using a Sleep Eye Mask can thus help facilitate much deeper and higher quality of consistent sleep which translates to endless benefits for holistic health. Think clearer skin, stronger hair, higher energy levels, better productivity, mental clarity, better mood, lower cortisol levels, improved muscle health, a regulated nervous system, stronger immunity- to name just a few.
