Cooling eye masks are a great method to a better night’s sleep. Cold eye masks can help relive many irritating symptoms such as Puffy Eyes, Swollen Eyes, Itchy Eyes, Sore Eyes, Headaches, Migraines and pressure in the sinuses.
Whilst some deem eye masks to be for little girl’s sleepovers, adults are main consumers for sleep accessories and sleeping aids. Many people suffer from the above symptoms but choose to ignore them, unaware of how easily treated and prevented they are. A cooling eye mask can help you not only to relax at the end of a busy day, but also can help relive pressure on your sinuses and provide much needed relief to headaches and migraines.
A 20-minute application of a cold eye mask can drastically reduce the visibility of eye circles and dark eye bags. Cooling the area under your eyes contracts blood vessels and helps to reduce darkness around the eye. With our complicated day to day lives, we can often forget to take a moment to breathe and relax. Taking a cooling eye mask into work can be an excellent way to remain focused and refreshed for the rest of the day.
If you suffer from allergies such as hay fever, that mask your eyes puffy or sore, a cold compression eye mask can help to relieve pain and reduce any puffiness or swelling. Delicate skin around the eyes is easily irritated by harsh cosmetic products, and applying a cold eye mask to the affected area can help to soothe the skin and prevent further irritation.
Many cooling gel eye masks can be used to block out light and provide total darkness. Power napping is a great way to reenergise during the day and complete darkness has been proven to increase the quality of rest. If you are frequently looking at screens during the day, muscles in the face and eyes can become stressed or strained. A quick application of a cold eye mask can help these muscles to relax and help you feel more comfortable for the rest of your busy day. If you often find yourself bedbound, with a splitting headache/hangover after a long night out, a cooling eye mask can be just the thing you need. It will help you relax and can (as we have already covered) relieve sinus and migraine related pain.

The TheraPearl Cold Gel Bead Eye Mask has received fantastic reviews online for its quality and effects. This again is another hot and cold eye mask that can be used to treat multiple symptoms and conditions.
Some people prefer when using a cooling eye mask, not to have the cold gel beads coming into direct contact with their skin. This is understandable as this can cause discomfort for those with delicate skin. There are masks such as the NEWGO relaxing eye mask which has a soft plush backing, which the warming & cooling beads sit on top of. This soft, comfortable layer rests on top of your eyelids which prevents the cold beads from coming into contact with your skin.
