Getting a good night’s sleep is important. Sleep keeps your mind and body healthy.

There are some things that you can’t control in your environment, but you can control how dark your environment is using an eye mask. Research has shown our circadian rhythm is impacted by light so by blocking out the light when you go to sleep, it can help you get a better night’s rest.

Adding a Sleep Mask to your sleep routine can help improve the quality of your sleep. Darkness triggers our bodies to produce more melatonin which leads us to experience more deep sleep (stages 3 and 4 of our sleep cycle) which is where our bodies do most of their repairing. It also reduces the risk of us waking up from light exposure from devices, traffic or other light sources in the home. It’s been scientifically proven; a study with ICU patients found that those who slept with an eye mask experienced elevated melatonin levels and more REM sleep.” – Amy Peacock, Earths Secret founder.

Here are some of the benefits of using a sleep mask…

  • You’re more likely to sleep through the night due to less distractions from outside lights and movements.
  • The darkness from an eye mask increases your REM sleep and boosts melatonin production.
  • The gentle pressure from an eye mask has a calming effect similar to a hug, boosting serotonin levels and making you feel more relaxed.
  • If you wake up with irritated, scratchy eyes – using a sleep mask may help alleviate that.
  • If you use a silk eye mask – it could help prevent wrinkles as it takes away the friction from your pillows.


  • If you wear an eye mask that is ill fitting, is perhaps a little tight, the consistent pressure may lead you to waking up with blurred vision.
  • Make sure to wash your eye mask regularly as the sweat, oil, makeup and dirt accumulation can lead to skin irritation and breakouts.
