5 Essentials You Need in Your Night Routine
Your lack of sleep, or lack of sound sleep, can come from multiple factors. It may be a strain in your relationships, world stressors, or it may be from work. It is important to relax and focus on your well-being when it comes to the time you have before you go to sleep.
Developing a routine will help you to have consistency that your body craves and your mind needs to rest peacefully. Although everyone has their own set of needs, there are a few standards and staples that can be maintained for everyone, despite personal preferences.
- Comfy Slippers
UGG has had the slipper game on lock for years now, so it comes as no surprise that this season’s best-seller is comfy, cute, and affordable. UGG has been using only the finest of materials when it comes to making their products and they date back to 1978 when they were founded in Southern California. Their brand has been a household name for decades. And even more so now, as they continue to work toward maintaining their strict supplier standards. This ensures that you get ethically sourced products that are respectful of the industry they come from.
- The Make Up Eraser
We know how difficult it is to have the motivation to remove your make up before bed. But listen, removing it all will increase your quality of sleep and will help your skin to breathe! If you are trying to move away from disposable make up wipes, Make Up Eraser is the best option for you. They make the best make up removers out there! And all you have to do to get your make up off, is add water to the easer and wipe your face. It really is that simple. Plus, since you only need to use water, there are no harsh chemicals being added to your skin. This is one of the steps in your new routine that is not to be missed! Besides, you can take care of your skin by one more little step. After cleaning your makeup, just wash it with natural-based soap. All-natural ingredients will help your skin to keep its microbiome balanced and repair dead skin cells. For instance, you can choose avocado-based soaps which will hydrate your skin or pure goat milk soaps for nourishing your skin and keeping it away from dryness.
- A Nighttime Serum
A retinol alternative from Objective Wellness is the perfect nighttime serum to add to your routine. The Rest and Renew Skin Serum has a gentle lavender scent that will help you fall asleep, and it is made with bakuchiol (a gentler than retinol alternative) that will smooth, renew, and soften skin while you sleep. It will help you to wake up looking refreshed and ready for your day and over time it will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It even supports a brighter, more even skin tone. This one is a no-brainer!
- Temperature Controlled Mattress Pad
If you tend sleep warmly, this one is for you. Using ChiliPAD makes it so you can control the temperature of your bed, giving you the power to sleep at the right temperature for you. It comes with a hydro-powered mesh pad, thermal regulating control unit, and a remote that will allow you to adjust the temperature once you are already under the covers. The hydropower makes it so you can pick a temperature between 55-115 F. If you are a little skeptical, they have a 90-day trial to ensure that you have made the right choice for your nighttime needs!
- A Good Book
If you are like most adults on the planet, you probably scroll your phone or tablet before bed. That is actually something that adds to our discomfort when trying to get to sleep, as it keeps us up even after we have put it down. We recommend making your bed a no phone zone, and picking up a good book to unwind, relax your mind, and help you fall asleep without the glow. Any book will do for this task, but feel free to pick something you think will help aid in your ability to fall asleep. Maybe go for a book on meditation, instead of a thriller? Whatever helps you best!
