By now, you’ve probably heard about stress-reducing (at least, supposedly) weighted blankets, touted for their ability to soothe and calm restlessness and therefore promote enhanced sleep, but weighted eye and sleeping masks are the newest heavy-weight in the wellness space—and for good reason. While your standard satin or fabric eye mask can help block out extra light to help you get a more solid slumber, that’s about it as far as benefits go.
On the other hand, weighted eye masks not only work to shield you from light, to reduce puffiness and swelling under your eyes and around the contours of your face via pressure therapy, but they can also help reduce symptoms of headaches, eye strain from staring at your laptop and phone all day long, and help relieve tension. While there isn’t much proof to back their therapeutic benefits, if nothing else, they’re also just downright comfortable, and making sleeping or just resting as dreamy (yes, pun intended) as ever. Scroll through below to check out some of our favorite weighted sleeping masks to try out for yourself.
