When you think of a cold gel eye mask, do you think of women who want to reduce undereye bags and look good? Or frequent tralvelers? Both are great uses for a cold gel eye mask, but there are nine surprising benefits for this versatile health and beauty aid!
A cool gel eye mask is soothing and can safely make many conditions feel better. Here are the benefits of using cold gel bead eye masks from Rapid Aid:
Soothe Eye Pain
Sore eyes from allergies, a headache, or even eye strain from working in front of a screen for too long are common for many people. A cool eye mask can help ease some of the soreness from these activities and even mitigate migraine symptoms.
Better Sleep Quality
Eye masks can help improve your sleep and reduce the health impact of chronic sleep deprivation. Blue light, like that from your phone or computer, is especially disruptive to your circadian rhythm. Instead, apply a cool eye mask to block ambient light and help your eyes rest better so you can enjoy better sleep.
General Health Benefits
Eye masks allow you to get better sleep, which, in turn, helps your body repair from the stresses of the day. You’ll start producing more melatonin, allowing you more sound sleep and helping prevent certain kinds of heart disease. More sound sleep also helps reduce your body’s oxidative stress, which may cause cancer.
Improved Mental Health
Sleeping in total darkness may help give you a mental health boost. Some studies show that depression is linked to light exposure during sleep. Using a cool gel eye mask to block light, you’ll have a chemical-free alternative to medical sleeping aids and may even see some depression symptoms lessen.
Decrease Eye Puffiness
Sleep deprivation, allergies, too many late nights, and general aging all take a toll on the delicate skin under your eyes, creating puffy bags. Luckily, cold gel eye masks can gently reduce the swelling and make you feel – and look – much better!
Reduce Discomfort and Eye Pain
Conditions like meibomian gland disorder (MGD), dry eyes, and Blepharitis may present symptoms like dry eyes or blocked oil glands. A cool eye mask can help improve natural lubrication and unblock oil glands, making your eye condition less painful.
Helps You Relax and Unwind
Nothing feels better after a long day than coming home and placing a cool eye mask over your eyes. You can take 20 minutes to yourself to decompress while the cool soothing gel relaxes the day’s stressors and pressure away.
Boost the Power of your Power Naps
A short midday power nap can help fight off the afternoon slump and boost your mental acuity. You can use the eye mask to block out the light from the day, allowing you to take a catnap to rest and recharge. You may be able to concentrate better on work or school, reducing mistakes you may make when you’re tired or your eyes hurt.
The Ideal Travel Companion
Whether flying cross-country or trying to sleep in an unfamiliar hotel bed, a cool gel eye mask can help you block out unfamiliar surroundings and rest well. Tossing and turning or trying to relax on a plane is hard, but with an eye mask, you can communicate: “do not disturb” and get that much-needed shut-eye.
