What do Eye Masks do?
Eye masks are designed to keep all incoming light away from your eyes and to induce a state of pure darkness.

How does the Eye Mask work?
When your brain senses pure darkness, it causes the production of melatonin, the chemical of sleep. To help induce this state, you can also use earplugs. When you block out both noise and light, your chances of falling asleep are improved. People who sleep regularly during the day, such as nurses or other shift workers can benefit greatly by using them.
What other things can help me sleep?
You can use an eye mask with other products to help you sleep; such as, peaceful CDs, white noise machines and audio visual programs which block out sound or induce a state of inner serenity and peace.
There are also herbal eye masks with delightful herbal fragrances that can lull you into a deep comfortable sleep. If you suffer from allergies, bead and gel sinus masks can provide the calm, gentle pressure that helps you rest.
