Top 5 tips for better beauty sleep
Do you struggle to get your 8 hours of sleep each night? Are you waking up feeling worse than when you went to bed? Looking for a way to nab a few extra hours of shut-eye? Well look no further, because we’ve got five top tips for getting better beauty sleep. Follow these little beauties to ensure you get a decent sleep and wake up feeling fresh as a daisy – everyday.
Beauty sleep tip #1: Lavender
Lavender is renowned for being a sleep saviour. Studies have shown that its aroma works to slow your heart rate and blood pressure, lulling you into a state of relaxation. We love: The Body Shop Wellbeing Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist. Just give your pillow a quick spritz before bed and let the snoozing begin!
Beauty sleep tip #2: Meditation
We all lead busy lives, and with all of the thoughts racing through our heads its no wonder we can’t get to sleep at night! About 20 minutes before hitting the hay, take some quiet time to empty your mind of anything that might keep you up at night. Ensure you let go of any of the stress and anxiety you have whizzing around in your head and focus on the silence. Doing this each day will help you get into a routine, and help you to unwind before going to bed.
Beauty sleep tip #3: Hot baths
Nothing beats a hot, soothing bath after a hard days’ work, and if you’re looking to improve your shut-eye, then this could be just the trick! Try adding The Aromatherapy Company Therapy Lavender Pure Essential Oil to your bath to calm and relax the senses, or use L’Occitane Lavender Organic Shower Gel to help send you into ‘sleepy land’ and promote a good night’s sleep.
Beauty sleep tip #4: Food and drink
In the lead up to going to bed, be mindful of eating heavy, carb-loaded meals, or drinking too much caffeine and alcohol, as these can all reduce your sleep quality. Top tip: a warm glass of milk is a sure fire way to stop you counting sheep and help you unwind. Alternatively, try Pretorius Sleep Better – it’s a natural supplement that uses only the good stuff to naturally enhance sleep.
Beauty sleep tip #5: Pamper yourself
What if there was a way to improve your sleep and skin with just the one product? Well, say goodbye to scaly skin and hello to newfound softness (and a better sleep to boot) thanks to products like Decleor Paris Aroma Night Regenerating Night Beauty Cream, which helps nourish skin and promote relaxation with its aromatherapy properties, as well as a subtle blend of freesia, sweet almond and cherry blossom.
