For too may of us, a good night’s sleep is not a given. One solution to restless nights is a sleep mask to block out ambient light. It’s certainly better on your system than sleeping pills or other medication, but let’s face it: Sometimes a simple blindfold just won’t do the trick.
Restless sleepers are prone to distraction from more than just ambient light, but modern sleep masks are so much more than just a strip of cloth. Here are four sleep masks designed to attack your insomnia on multiple fronts, giving you the environment best suited for a restful snooze.
Perhaps you’ve heard of weighted blankets? The gentle embrace they simulate works wonders for anyone who’s prone to distraction or insecurity at bedtime. This sleep mask works on the same principle, employing sewn-in microbeads that deliver gentle pressure on the contours of your face.
The pull-through strap secures the mask without pulling on hair and makes sure it stays put though every unconscious twist and turn.
This sleep aid combo is especially suited for airplanes or bus commutes, but it works equally well in the comfort of your own bed. The Manta’s fit is a particular highlight.
It contours carefully around your eyes, making for a fit that blocks out 100% of ambient light, but convex recesses make sure the eyes themselves stay untouched. Meanwhile, the cotton and microfiber body pillow can be folded to give you support exactly where you need it.
Traditional sleep masks block out light, but what about the even more prevalent distraction of sound? This mask incorporates flat earpieces in the lining, capable of picking up a signal from any Bluetooth-enabled phone, tablet or MP3 player in the room.
Whether you’ve got a soothing bedtime playlist in mind, or just white noise to counteract the sounds of the neighborhood, you can get it in the most immersive way possible. And even without that innovation, the memory foam material in the mask feels soothing enough on its own.
The features in this mask cover all the bases. Not only will it block out light and sound effectively (thanks to the wireless audio capability), but the sensors in the mask can track your heart rate, the time you spend in REM sleep and more throughout the night.
This can help you train yourself to get a better night’s sleep. As if that weren’t enough, you can take advantage of soft therapy lighting inside the mask to nudge you straight into dreamland.
