Face Masks and Sleep

You already know that there are many steps you can take to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. You can use eye masks to help block out the light and earplugs to help lessen the noise. Both of these items can be used to help you get that wonderful, marvelous, ethereal sleep. What about face masks? Those made of mud, clay, charcoal, or other substances, are often touted to help clear your skin and make you look younger. We wondered, though, if these same face masks can also help one to sleep?

In researching, it appears that the answer could be a resounding, “Yes.” When you put on a face mask to accomplish cleansing and restorative benefits, you can also carve out some “me time”. Instead of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, after you apply a face mask you can sit back, relax, and soak in your surroundings. Of course, you might opt to multi-task and get other things done around the house while the mask does its magic. But why would you want to?

Applying a face mask and taking time out to relax could be just what you need to sleep better. They even sell masks intended to be used while you are sleeping. Some masks also contain aromatherapy properties. The scents that such masks emit while doing their wonders to your skin can also be assistive in you getting a great night’s sleep. It’s advisable to read the ingredients and test any face mask or cream on your arm before sleeping with it on your face. Some masks may contain chemicals that can cause allergic reactions.

If you go to sleep with your mind racing or you are otherwise not relaxed, you risk having problems falling and staying asleep. So why not take a time out, apply a soothing face mask, and sleep on it. Then let that mask do its magic. Maybe you'll get a bonus? Depending on the mask you choose, you might even end up with clearer skin.

Do you wear a face mask to sleep, such as a hydrating mask?
Do you find it helps you to sleep?
