Sometimes, no matter how busy and draining a day has been, sleep just doesn't come easy. Lying down and closing your eyes may be relaxing for your body, but your mind might keep right on running, filled with worries and concerns about everything that's yet to be done. If you toss and turn at night and can't seem to get in the 40 winks you need, a pre-bed routine with soothing and calming beauty products may be just what you need.
Before crawling into bed, be sure to wash your face with a gentle, aromatic cleanser to remove all traces of makeup, dirt and sweat. Try combining Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser with warm water and a soft, fluffy towel to release tension while getting ready to hit the hay.
Applying an anti aging moisturizer before bed is another easy way to banish stress and prepare both mind and body for sleep. The gentle, massaging motion of applying skin cream feels good and is good for you. Look for skin care beauty products with light, relaxing scents, like lavender. CND Scentsations Lavender and Jojoba Lotion will not only leave your skin soft, silky and nourished, its delightful fragrance will help you drift off to dreamland in no time.
Getting enough sleep can be a challenge for all of us, but having a relaxing pre-bed routine that gets you ready for some shuteye is a big help.
