We all know that we are supposed to get between seven to nine hours of sleep each night in order to stay healthy, alert and refreshed. When you sleep, your body is performing important functions such as muscle repair, the release of hormones to regulate appetite and tissue growth. Ensuring that you get adequate rest each night will add years to your looks. Here are a few ways to make sure you get your beauty sleep.
Cilque Silk Pillowcases Leave Hair Tangle-Free
Cilque makes luxury silk pillowcases from 100% premium mulberry silk charmeuse from Jiangsu, China. Have you heard about the benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases? Silk retains moisture better than cotton, thus when you sleep on silk pillowcases, your skin stays hydrated. You will also not awaken with sleep creases on your face since silk prevents creases. If you are sleeping on cotton pillowcases and wake up with tangled hair, you’ll definitely want to switch to Cilque silk pillowcases since they allow your hair to slide from side to side. You’ll notice less hair on your pillowcase in the morning since your hair won’t go through a workout sleeping on silk. One of the best features about Cilque silk pillowcases is they adjust to temperature so that they are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Cilque silk pillowcases come in a variety of colours to coordinate with your bedroom decor. Cilque silk pillowcases cost $69 for one pillowcase or $120 per pair and can be purchased online.
Create a Soothing Aroma with Puressentiel Rest & Relax Spray
If you have trouble getting to sleep, try spraying Puressentiel Rest & Relax in the corners of your bedroom. The 12 essential oils, which include rosewood, mandarin, lavender, neroli, sandalwood, orange, marjoram, cypress, vervain, palmarosa, garden-chamomile and petitgrain, combine to promote a restful environment so that you can get your beauty sleep. The spray will also remove odours from your bedroom. Puressentiel sprays do not contain dyes, synthetic preservatives or synthetic perfumes. I spray Puressentiel Rest & Relax Spray just once in my bedroom an hour before bedtime since I find that is enough to promote a soothing sleep. Puressentiel Rest and Relax Spray is for adult use only.
Hydrate Your Skin with Elabloom Spray and Go Lotion
Having a warm bath or shower is an excellent way to relax after a long day and ensure you get your beauty sleep. But hot water can dehydrate your skin. Elabloom Spray and Go Lotion, $16.95, is an easy way to quickly hydrate your skin after a shower. This spray contains natural moisturizers, avocado oil and aloe vera to deeply moisturize skin. I love that you just spray it on, which makes it so easy to apply, and it does not leave your skin feeling greasy. The Spray and Go Lotion also has a pleasant coconut scent, which lingers for several hours. Elabloom Spray and Go Lotion also contains no parabens, no phthalates, and no petroleum so you are not spraying harmful chemicals on your body. Purchase Elabloom Spray and Go Lotion online.
Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep for a Beautiful Morning Face
Vichy makes some wonderful skincare products. One of my favourites is Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep, a luxurious night cream. Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep duplicates the repair activity that results from a deep sleep. My face is noticeably plumper in the morning after using Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep and that is due to the ingredients that include Hyaluronic acid that plumps and hydrates skin. while caffeine stimulates circulation. Jasmine and green tea have calming effects on the skin. Idéalia Skin Sleep contains no parabens and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin like mine. It also smells wonderful! You can purchase Vichy products online or at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Unplug a Half an Hour Before Bed
Close Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, email, and turn off your TV at least a half an hour before bed to give your mind a chance to wind down and ensure you get your beauty sleep. Do some meditation or breathing exercises or listen to soft music. Pick up a book that is not related to your work and which will not lead to fright-filled nightmares. Here are a few books that are light enough for bedtime reading:
- Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling – Mindy Kaling, quirky star of The Office and The Mindy Project charms with her collection of personal essays.
- Coming Ashore by Catherine McClure Gildiner – This is McClure Gildiner’s third volume of memoirs. In Coming Ashore, the author covers her studies at Oxford during the turbulent sixties and her time living at Toronto’s infamous Rochdale College.
- The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom – The voice of Music narrates the tale of the fictional Frankie Presto, a Spanish guitar virtuoso who achieves fame and learns from all of the bands and music legends he encounters.
