If you suffer from Blepharitis, a heated eye mask can help to unblock glands in your eyes. If these glands are blocked, the oily film that keeps your eye moisturized will no longer be secreted into the eye. This can lead to other conditions such as dry eyes, cysts and styes. When in use a warm eye mask, will encourage your eye’s glands to relax and open. This could help them unblock, but it is also advised to massage the eyes after use to promote further unblocking.
If you are free from irritation whilst sleeping, your quality of sleep will be better and you will have more NREM Stage 3 sleep. This period is where the brain waves slow down and the body is able to regenerate. This is an important stage for those who are more active as it will allow their body to recover from any injuries and wear. The first stage of N3 lasts for 45-90 minutes and subsequent periods last for shorter times as the night goes on.
