What is an eye mask?
As the name suggests, an eye mask is a product that intensively cares for the very sensitive skin around the eye area. Since moisture is lost particularly easily in this area, small wrinkles, unsightly dark circles and bags under the eyes quickly appear. That's where the eye mask comes in! It visibly regenerates the skin - and in a very short time. Another piece of good news is that if you use it regularly, you can even considerably delay the appearance of the first wrinkles. Here is an overview of the benefits of an eye mask:
- Less dark circles
- Reduction of annoying puffiness and bags under the eyes
- Padding of the first wrinkles
- Intensive stimulation of blood circulation and collagen formation
- Help with dry eyes
- Relaxation for headaches and stress
What are the different types of eye masks?
There is a very large selection of different active ingredients, forms and even areas of application on the market. Here is our overview to help you decide which product is best for you:
- Eye Pads
Eye pads are currently a real beauty trend: they are not placed on the closed eyes, but stuck under the eyes. In this way, they rapidly supply the skin with nourishing ingredients and also effectively combat wrinkles, dark circles or bags under the eyes.
- Cooling eye mask
Whoever hears the term eye mask probably immediately thinks of the image of blue gel masks. They are also the classics, so to speak! These gel eye masks look like sleeping masks and are also tied around the head. The cooling effect wakes up sallow skin and makes puffiness around the eyes disappear quickly, as the cold stimulates blood circulation. It is best to put the cooling mask in the fridge two hours before use and then put it on your closed eyes for about 15 minutes before going to bed. You will be amazed at how awake your eyes are the next morning!
- Warming eye mask
They are the counterpart to the cooling eye masks. Instead of giving the skin a freshness boost, the warmth here is meant to soothe and relax. After a long day behind the computer, this is a real boon! The warming eye masks even promise relief from headaches and migraines.
- Eye mask as cream or gel
This variant is applied like a face mask - but only around the eye area. It gives your skin a lot of moisture and is ideal to use during a hot bath. Simply apply to cleansed skin with your fingers, leave on and then rinse off with lukewarm water.
DIY eye mask
If you have the time and the inclination, you can easily make your own eye mask with natural ingredients. You only need two home remedies: coconut oil and coffee grounds. Mix them in a 1:1 ratio and apply the mask under the eyes. This DIY eye mask moisturises the skin with coconut oil and stimulates circulation with caffeine. Your eyes will be awake again in just 10 minutes! Our tip: microwave the coconut oil for a few seconds to give it a liquid consistency and make it easier to mix with the coffee grounds! Alternatively, you can make an eye mask with honey and curd. This has an antibacterial and soothing effect. Honey is also effective for blemished skin!
Frequently asked questions:
How often should I use an eye mask?
It all depends on the needs of your skin and the product. If you want to get rid of dark circles or bags under the eyes quickly, simply apply the eye mask when necessary. As a long-term anti-ageing remedy for wrinkles, you should use eye masks regularly. This is the only way to achieve a lasting effect.
Are classic sleep masks also recommended?
Absolutely. They help with problems falling asleep and better sleep naturally also has an effect on our beauty. We recommend sleeping masks with lavender filling - immediate relaxation is pre-programmed!
Can I wear a cooling eye mask overnight?
In principle, yes. However, the cooling effect will not last the whole night. Besides, it is probably not very comfortable to wear the mask at night. So it's better to take it off again before going to bed!
At what age should eye masks be used?
We recommend application from the age of 20! At the latest, however, you should start to take special care of your skin around the eyes at the age of 30, as the skin loses its elasticity due to the natural ageing process.
