 BEAUTY SLEEP IN PROGRESS

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

A very famous saying which is nowadays just confined to the books. In this 21st century, our lifestyle has changed drastically. Change is an inevitable part of our lives.

Today if we look around us we see everyone as busy as bees and running even faster than the Shanghai Maglev. Everyone wants to outshine the others and in this rat race, they have turned into insomniacs.

For all the night owls, for all the people who are tired of their excruciating jobs, for all the students who are working their fingers to the bones and require power naps but cannot sleep in light.

Well! Sleep Mask is the solution to this enormous problem. It is one of the most beneficial tools for those who wish to travel or sleep during the day.

According to the Great British Sleep Survey, you will be astonished to know that more than 19% people are being disturbed by light levels before or during sleep.

Why should we use Sleep Masks..?

Ever wondered why it is advised to keep your sleeping environment dark. Light has profound effects on our sleep. It can pose a serious problem to our refreshing and sound sleep. Darkness is essential to sleep.

When our body is in complete darkness i.e when there is no light our body gets a signal that the body needs to sleep. But when our body is exposed to light at the wrong time, it disturbs our natural sleep-wake cycle and hence hampers our sleep.

Here the sleep masks come into picture.

It not only limits the exposure of light but also minimizes sleep disturbances caused by the light. It does improve sleep and is helpful for the people who wake up even by slightest of disturbance.

Fitted onto your face, provides a cocoon of darkness and helps a person to drift into his. Also, it has been difficult for most of us to meditate due to numerous reasons.

Be it light or lack of concentration. Eye masks are definitely man’s one of the most useful inventions.
