When your brain senses pure darkness, it causes the production of melatonin, the chemical of sleep. To help induce this state, you can also use earplugs. When you block out both noise and light, your chances of falling asleep are improved. People who sleep regularly during the day, such as nurses or other shift workers can benefit greatly by using them.

What was a gas mask?


The gas mask is a mask used to protect the user from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gasses. The mask forms a sealed cover over the nose and mouth, but may also cover the eyes and other vulnerable soft tissues of the face. Some gas masks are also respirators, though the word gas mask is often used to refer to military equipment (e.g. field protective mask). The user of the gas mask is not protected from gas that the skin can absorb. Most gas mask filters will last around 24 hours in a nuclear biological chemical (NBC) situation.
Airborne toxic materials may be gaseous (for example sulfur mustard and chlorine gas used in World War I) or particulates (such as many biological agents developed for weapons such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins). Many gas masks include protection from both types. Gas masks are used in construction to protect against welding fumes, in deconstruction to protect against asbestos or other hazardous particles, and in the chemical industry when handling hazardous materials, as in making repairs to leaking equipment or cleaning up after spills; workers have usually issued gas masks as a precaution against leaks.
During demonstrations and protests where tear gas or CS-gas is employed by riot police, gas masks are commonly used by police and demonstrators alike. Aside from serving their functional purposes, gas masks are also used as emblems in industrial music, with the most notable example, the subgenre of drum and bass called Neurofunk. These emblems are used by graffiti taggers because the mask protects them from the paint canister's toxic fumes, and by urban explorers venturing into environments where hazardous materials, such as asbestos, may be present.

3 activated carbon Mask mask DIY


Activated charcoal - not to be confused with plain charcoal - has become a common ingredient in skin care products, due to its deep-cleansing properties. It can be found in facial soaps, masks, liquid cleansers, and even in makeup primers with the purpose of preventing your skin from getting oily. Activated charcoal, which is a form of processed carbon, has an adsorptive quality that allows it to bind to dirt, oil and environmental pollutants, lifting them from the skin. It's inexpensive and easy to find at pharmacies and health food stores, usually in the form of capsules or loose powder. You can mix it with your face cleanser for a deep cleanse or use with other ingredients to create simple, effective facial treatments.

Warning
Activated charcoal may stain your clothes. Before preparing any of these face masks consider changing your clothes. Make sure to wear something you don't mind getting dirty when you apply the mask to your face. If your clothes get stained, rinse them right away.

Hi I'm a 45 year old male. I have good skin. Only a slight wrinkle at the eyes. Most people tell me I pass for a man in his 30's. I do have bags under my eyes. A hereditary trait. What can I use to keep...


Puffiness under the eyes can be caused from fluid retention. To reduce fluid retention be sure to drink plenty of water. Fluid retention occurs when the body has too much salt and not enough water to flush it out. Try to spend most of your sleeping hours sleeping on your back. You can apply a cool, soothing substance to your eyes for 5 minutes to reduce fluid retention. Try cucumber slices; damp, chilled tea bags; or a damp, cold cloth.

I also recommend our soothing collagen mask. You can place the unopened package in the refrigerator for an added bonus. Use the mask when you have at least 15 minutes to spare. Besides collagen, the mask also has other moisturizing agents such as CoQ10. The mask sells for $8.88.

The swivel clip on my scubamax mask broke. Where can I get a replacement piece?


Got to a store that sells Scubamax masks. They should have spares.
Failing that, contact the company and ask them to send you the part.
Should be little or no cost. Kind of a warranty thing. Don't pull the straps so tight next time ;' >

I really like the 'full-face" US Diver Seal Mask and/or Aqua Seal Vista googles. (Both are actually swim goggles, not masks). However, I have an eye correction of 13 diopters, requiring prescription lens....


This shouldn't be a problem at all. It is better to have a eyeglass kit made that allows the use of prescription lenses to be installed inside of the mask. Remind your optometrist that glasses are regularly made and fitted to the inside of facemasks of self contained breathing apparratus (SCBA) for firefighters. You don't grind lenses for the facemask, you have the lenses mounted inside, and when you wear the mask, the glasses are held close to your eyes. The beauty of this is that when you buy a new mask, you just refit your kit into the new mask.
Best regards, --W/D--, a former firefighter, 25 years.

Prescription Scuba Mask


The inserts would be specifically for your eye prescription and are bonded to the lens. You can even get bifocals done for your mask and also correct for astigmatism. Your specific prescription can be fit into any dive mask that you choose so there is no need to buy a new mask. prescription scuba mask Manufacturers also offer scuba masks with lenses already premade and the same prescription in both eyes. You choose the prescription that fits your needs. Some divers find this adequate to use underwater. The premade prescription mask would obviously be cheaper than custom made scuba diving masks. Personally, I wear contact lenses when I dive and have had no problems (besides losing one after I surfaced and got hit by a wave). I wear the daily soft lenses and don't notice them when I dive. I've never dove with hard contact lenses so I do not know how they would respond to pressure. If you wear lenses, you should consult your eye doctor to see what they recommend in your case before you dive with lenses for the first time. Let them decide whether you would be better off with a prescription scuba mask or diving with contacts. One site I found which seems very professional is www.prescriptiondivemasks.com. They even have a testimonial from Cathy Church, the renowned underwater photographer, on their site so it can't be too shabby.

Scuba mask maintenance


" 1. Use a defogging solution before every dive, even when diving more than once in the same day. This will prevent your scuba mask from fogging during a dive. You can purchase a commercially prepared defogging solution from any reputable scuba diving retailer. Squeeze a drop or two onto the inside lens of your mask and gently rub the solution around to cover the inside completely. Dip your mask briefly into water, swirl the water around the inside of your mask very quickly and empty the water from your mask. A quick rinse will remove any excess defogging solution from the inside of your mask. You do not want to get defogging solution in your eyes, especially while diving, since it can cause stinging and irritation. If you don't want to use a commercially prepared defogging solution you have a defogging solution readily available and it's free, your saliva. Your saliva will prevent your scuba mask from fogging just as well as any commercial defogging solution. The enzymes in your saliva stick to the lens of your mask like a commercial defogging solution and you will never find yourself without a defogger while on a dive. 2. Never lay your scuba mask face-down on any surface. Salt, sand and grit will scratch the lens of your mask. Always place your mask face up when you are not wearing it or if it is not in its hard case. 3. Rinse your scuba mask in clean, freshwater after each dive and dry it thoroughly before storing it in its hard case. After a dive, your mask will be covered in a salty residue and/or dirt. This must be rinsed clean to prevent the silicone on your mask from degrading. Your mask must be completely dry before storing it to ensure the silicone stays clean and odor-free. 4. Always store your scuba mask in its hard case. If your mask did not come with a hard case purchase an after-market hard case. This will protect your mask from dirt and abrasives and protect it while traveling. Always store the case out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will break down the silicone after years of exposure. 5. Periodically repeat the toothpaste treatment to keep the lens of your scuba mask clean. A good rinse after each dive helps to keep your mask clean, but to ensure there is no residue or grit left on your scuba mask you must properly clean it on a regular basis."
