Tips to share: get better beauty sleep with ear plugs

I bought myself a pack of earplugs that are designed for sleeping over the weekends. And I have to say, my sleep have been restful indeed. I am quite a light sleeper and used to be really sensitive to the sounds around me when I’m asleep. Because my work hours are not the typical 9-5, I sometimes wake up at 9 or even 10am if I have nothing on early in the day. But as the rest of the world bustles from as early as 7am, I find myself waking up to noisy neighbors or random sounds from outside on most mornings. Needless to say, this usually render my mornings not so pleasant and grumpy. And so, I have decided to try using ear plugs instead of admitting defeat to the sounds around me in the mornings!

How I think the earplugs helped
Upon wearing the ear plugs, you will hear a sound that is equivalent to that of a vacuum right in your ears. It’s interesting because it is quiet after wearing, but not so quiet at the same time because the silence is loud. It’s just like plugging your fingers into your ears. Apart from being designed to block out noises, I believe very much that the vacuum-like sound helps in making you less susceptible to waking up from sudden loud noises. The vacuum sound works like white noise, which actually creates a sound that overrides the noises you may hear in the background. Add that to a sleeping person, those background sounds will be so muffled out, and so chances are you won’t even hear them.

May feel a little uncomfortable at first
Although these earplugs are really soft and meant to wear to sleep, you can still feel them when you sleep on your side, or even when you’re sleeping on your back if you have sensitive ears. The worst part is once my ear itched a little in the middle of the night, but I had to ignore the itch to save myself the hassle of removing the earplugs to scratch my ear and then putting it back on again. Although it takes a little getting used to when using ear plugs, the amount of rest I got after using them made it all worthwhile. And it’s not really a big issue once you get used to wearing them.

Things to take note when wearing ear plugs to sleep
It is best to make sure you dry your ears every day after stepping out of the shower, so that when you wear your earplugs at night, you aren’t clogging any remaining water that may still be sitting inside. It is also not advisable to pull the earplugs out too fast and suddenly in the mornings as over time it may affect your eardrums in case you’re too “rough” in the process. I also make an effort to clean out my ears daily now that I am wearing ear plugs to sleep. But overall, it shouldn’t pose much of a health risk.

Would you go as far as to wear ear plugs to get your beauty sleep?
After experiencing the quality rest with the ear plugs, I doubt I will be doing without them often from now on. I am fully enjoying the quality rest with the ear plugs. I definitely recommend this to light sleepers or those who really treasure their beauty sleep. I told my friends about the ear plugs I just bought and they seem to think I’m a little too adventurous with looking for solutions just so I can get more quality sleep. What about you ladies? Would you consider investing in a pair of earplugs to improve the quality of sleep you are getting?

    Hi Cassie! I am also a light sleeper… actually I have been contemplating whether I should buy the earplugs to improve my sleep or not, but still hesitating… After reading your sharing, I have decided to buy them. may I know where you bought the earplugs? ? thanks!

  2. Ann says:

    I’m a light sleeper and I’ve been wearing earplugs to sleep for the longest time, esp when hubby snores. Can’t do without it. I get the heavy duty wax ones, cancels out much more noise then the foam ones. With twin toddlers now, I just wear them on one side so that I can still hear any crying.

  3. Dora says:

    I am living in a dorm where ear plugs are almost obligatory since I have a fridge in my room. But a potential danger is to overhear the alarm clock. This happened to me a couple of times. So that I sometimes use two alarm clocks to make sure I wake up – but mostly I loose one of the ear plugs at night and than its easy to wake up.

    I got them from ? hope it works for u!

  5. Cassie says:

    I got a pair of the mould-like ones as samples, which i think could be the ones you are referring to. I am quite clueless how to put them on and haven’t tried them yet!

  6. Cassie says:

    Or you can get a vibrating alarm if you can find one! ?

    Interesting post~ Though I don’t think I will get used to having ear plugs in my sleep unless the neighbours are super noisy (which can often be resolved by calling Noise Control)… And usually when I am really tired I will still sleep nevertheless, even though I can be a light sleeper at times =P

    Thanks for your comment about how you should get earplugs to help you sleep because they can cancel all the noise around you. I like how you said that they aren’t dangerous to use either. My husband can’t sleep very well at night and he is a very light sleeper. I am looking into getting him earplugs that will help him get to bed better.

  19. Liz says:

    I’m not exaggerating too much when I say that earplugs saved my relationship. I could go and sleep in another room when we were not traveling but during our travels it would be a waste to rent two hotel rooms. So his snoring was driving me crazy and the only solution was to put on my earbuds in max volume. The sound would be too loud and doing no good to my hearing, but at least I could sleep few hours. Fortunately, I discovered earplugs and sleep headphones combination before I lost my hearing ?

    Great article, by the way ?

    The problem with my large male ears is that the darn things keep falling out!

    I would like to give them a try to see how well they work, but sadly I haven’t found any that really stay on through the night. I keep having to wake up to plug them in. Especially in the ears that is on my pillow… being that I am a side sleeper. Having to wake up each time in the middle of the night doesn’t promote a good sleep routine that much either:(.
