Just like our best-selling Weighted Sleep Mask, the Heating/Cooling Weighted Sleep Mask uses the same science behind our Gravity Blankets to give your face the perfect pressure stimulation. This Heating/Cooling Weighted Sleep Mask features upgraded materials in the weighted inner (50/50 glass bead / sea salt mix) to allow for the temperature adjustments as outlined below. The outer mask shell is made of a silky, luxurious charmeuse.
THE WEIGHTED DESIGN
The patented design distributes 1 lb. of weighted pressure to key pressure points on the face – on areas surrounding the eyes tied to relaxation. This 'deep touch pressure stimulation' increases serotonin and melatonin, the hormones responsible for relaxation, and decreases cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress.
THE HEATING & COOLING FEATURE
To get the ultimate relaxation possible during use, we’ve designed the weighted insert to be heated in the microwave or frozen in the freezer. Simply follow the instructions on the packaging or in the FAQs below, and be prepared to enter a state of ultimate comfort.
How do I use the Heating/Cooling Weighted Sleep Mask? How long should I heat/cool it?
Before heating or freezing the mask, please ensure you’re removing the weighted insert from the outer charmeuse shell. DO NOT HEAT OR FREEZE THE SHELL.
FOR COLD COMPRESS USAGE: Freeze the weighted insert for 60-90 minutes. If colder temperature is desired, add additional time in the freezer. Once removed from the freezer, place it back into the outer shell and apply the full mask to your face.
FOR HOT COMPRESS USAGE: Place weighted insert in microwave for 20-30 seconds (based on 800 Watt microwave) to start. From there, add additional time if a hotter temperature is desired. When removing the mask from the microwave, be careful as the weighted insert will be hot. We recommend using oven mitts or a towel as needed.
In addition to following these instructions, we recommend reading the safety precautions in the next FAQ before use.
Are there any other safety considerations I should be aware of?
This mask is for external use only, and should only be used under adult supervision. Consult your doctor before using, if you have any concerns about your health.
Do not overheat weighted insert or heat the entire mask (i.e. including the outer shell). Follow instructions to ensure your safety during the heating/cooling process and during usage.
Keep away from sharp objects, and discard the weighted mask if it leaks or bursts. Remove from skin immediately if at any time the temperature of the mask (hot or cold) becomes uncomfortable.
How do I care for Heating/Cooling Weighted Sleep Mask?
Due to the materials this mask is made of, we only recommend spot cleaning it (both outer shell and weighted inner). Do not machine wash.
