What is a headache?

Headache is defined as a continuous pain in the head.

However there are many different types of headaches that range from a minor inconvenience to a medical emergency - if you are experiencing severe pain, please consult a healthcare professional. 

We have chosen five of the most common types of headaches, that our Face Mask can help with:

Migraine

A migraine is characterised by severe throbbing pain, usually localised to one side of the head. This can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, cold hands and aura (visual disturbances that might include numbness of the arms or legs).

Directions: Place mask over the site of headache, as pain regions can vary depending on the type of migraine. Suggestions may include; applying the mask over the eyes or over the back of the head with band around forehead. Heat or Cold Therapy may be used depending on personal preference - please use the product safely, and read all instructions before use.

Sinus

Sinus headaches can be caused by congestion, irritation or inflammation of the sinuses in the head.

Directions: Apply the mask to the face, over the frontal sinus. The mask has been thoughtfully designed to cover the sinus and eyes for additional relaxation and pain relief. Heat Therapy is recommended - please use the product safely and read instructions before use. Attempt to blow nose following application.

Hangover

A large number of adults have over-indulged at least once in their lifetime on alcohol. This can lead to waking up the next morning with a splitting headache. Symptoms can often mimic migraine type headaches, without being limited to one side of the head.

Directions: Apply the mask to the face, over the forehead and eyes. Cold Therapy is recommended, or using the mask at room temperature - please use the product safely, and read all instructions before use.  An added benefit is that it may also help with puffy eyes, and dark circles caused by the late night antics!

Fever

Headache caused by fever is often caused by an underlying bacterial or viral infection - medical advice should be sought. Fever type headaches can be general in nature with pain largely dependent on the underlying cause.

Directions: Apply the mask to the face - this could be over the forehead, or over the eyes. Cold Therapy is recommended - please use the product safely, and read all instructions before use.

Eyestrain

Pain and heaviness may be felt around the eyes. This can occur to spending increased amounts of time in front of a screen or uncorrected visual problems.

Directions: Apply the mask to the face, over eyes; both Heat and Cold Therapy is recommended and will depend on personal preference - please use the product safely, and read all instructions before use. 

Once applied, just breathe, rest and relax!
