    FAQs

    WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A SLEEP MASK?

    When you’re shopping around for eye protection for sleeping, you should look for one that has fabric flaps that are adjustable so they will fit any sized head. Also, the play parts can be irritating for your eyes and eyelashes might graze the mask during your REM cycle of sleep. Look for a mask that is recessed so you have less contact with the eye.

    WHAT ARE THE BEST SLEEP MASKS AVAILABLE AT EARJOBS?

    At Earjobs we have the best eye masks for sleeping. Made from top quality fabrics that promise to be soft on your skin, there are some masks that have been rated four stars or more. They include the MACKS DREAMGIRL SLEEP MASK WITH DREAMGIRL EARPLUGS + PINK TRAVEL POUCH, THE DOZY™ 3D SLEEP MASK and MACKS SHUT-EYE SHADE SLEEP MASK.

    Why do I need a sleeping mask to sleep?

    Sleeping masks and other aids help people get more sleep and get a better quality of sleep. They block out light and noise, increasing the amount of REM time they have and promoting sleep and hormone balance.

    Any artificial light interrupts normal sleep patterns. Blue light suppresses the production of the sleep hormone melatonin more than other types of light. Blue light comes from TVs, smartphones, computers, and other electronic devices. Trying to go to sleep beside someone who has the TV going can prevent your body from producing melatonin. The body needs this hormone to prepare for sleep. Wearing a sleeping mask prevents your eyes from detecting light so it doesn’t interfere with the sleep cycle.

    What type of sleeping masks does Earjobs have to improve my sleep?

    Earjobs has one of the best assortments of sleeping masks online in New Zealand. Using an eye mask at home or taking travel eye masks with you when you travel can help you get the quality sleep you need. Studies show that an investment into a sleep mask can put you at a lower risk of developing some types of cancers and other serious health risks.

    The primary reason people buy a white noise machine is that other noises are interfering with their quality of sleep. A partner’s snoring, a neighbour’s loud music, and busy traffic outside are just some of the sounds that make it difficult to sleep.

    You aren’t the only one that your lack of sleep could be hurting. The light from cell phone use also interferes with your kids’ ability to sleep. Make sure they power off their phones and other devices two or three hours before going to bed. Take the steps you need to protect your health and that of your children from light that interfere with sleep.

    Sleeping Mask – A sleeping mask is made to create total darkness while also being completely comfortable. The best sleep mask fits snug around the nose and eyes so you can’t see any light even when you open your eyes. Some masks have snug masks and gather around the edges that help them fit and hold them in place. A contoured sleep mask usually fits best and lies flatter against the skin. When it is used in combination with ear plugs, you can achieve total quiet and dark.

    Sleeping Mask with Ear Covering – A sleeping mask with ear covering includes the mask to keep out light in addition to ear covers to keep out sound. It’s a great choice in a sleep mask for travel or for home use. Get a better night’s sleep with a sleep mask that blocks out noise and light.

    SleepPhones – SleepPhones are headphones that play relaxing music to help you sleep. SleepPhones with Bluetooth capability let you use your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled devices to listen to music up to 30 feet away. Block background noise with gentle music that relaxes you and helps you get to sleep.
