Do you breathe through your mouth while you sleep? 

Are you tired of waking up feeling groggy, with a dry mouth or bad breath? Do you often find yourself getting nudged awake in the middle of the night because of your snoring? 

You’re not alone. Many struggle with mouth breathing while sleeping, which might impact the quality of your sleep and leave you feeling less than refreshed in the morning.

If you’re on the quest for a better night’s sleep, then you’re in the right place. 

You already know that breathing through your nose is better for you than breathing through your mouth. When you breathe through your nose, your air is warmed, humidified, and filtered, removing dust, allergens, and other particles. Mouth breathing, on the other hand, bypasses these processes and might contribute to a range of health issues.

But here’s the challenge: how do you stop yourself from mouth breathing while you’re asleep?

Well, you may have heard of mouth taping, it’s not a new practice, but not all mouth tapes are created equal. Traditional mouth tapes come with a few drawbacks and potential dangers, which is why at Myospots, we’ve developed a new solution.

Myospots Lip Tape is designed to address the shortcomings of traditional mouth tape. Lip taping for sleep aims to make it easier and more comfortable for you to adopt the healthier habit of nasal breathing while you sleep, and hopefully, helps you to finally get that refreshing nights slumber you’ve been longing for.

What is mouth taping?

Before diving into the specifics, let’s first understand the concept behind mouth taping for sleep. 

Mouth taping is a technique aimed at promoting nasal breathing during sleep by sealing your lips with tape. This practice involves applying tape across your upper and lower lips, preventing you from opening your mouth, so you can’t mouth breathe. This aims to force you to breathe through your nose during the night. 

While the concept appears straightforward, there are several reported drawbacks associated with traditional mouth taping:

  • Skin Irritation: Some may experience skin irritation or reactions around the lips due to prolonged contact with the tape.
  • Discomfort: Removing the tape can be painful, especially for those with facial hair, as it may pull on your skin or hair.
  • Sleep Disruptions: Some may have trouble sleeping or feel worried because they’re uncomfortable with their mouth completely taped shut or find it hard to breathe only through their nose.
  • Safety Concerns: Completely preventing mouth breathing raises concerns about potential dangers if the nose becomes blocked during sleep, such as in cases of congestion or allergies.


These challenges prompted the development of a new solution: Myospots Lip Tape

By addressing these concerns, our innovative lip tape aims to provide a more comfortable method for promoting nasal breathing during sleep.

Is mouth tape dangerous?

It’s important to address the question ‘Is mouth taping dangerous?’. 

As with any issue that’s affecting your health, it’s crucial to approach your overnight mouth breathing with caution and awareness.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of a sleep disorder, such as snoring, gasping for air, pauses in your breathing, disrupted sleep, headaches, or frequent waking, it’s crucial to consult your doctor. These symptoms may indicate an underlying health issue contributing to mouth breathing during sleep.

Consulting with a healthcare professional is essential to rule out any potential health concerns and ensure that mouth tape for sleep is a suitable option in your specific situation. Your doctor can provide personalised recommendations based on your medical history, symptoms, and overall health.
