Hey beauty babes, are you gettin’ your proper Zzzs? You’ve probably already noticed, but when you skimp on sleep, it shows on your face (dark circles, sags, bags, etc.). WOMP. Lack of sleep can also make you more stressed and tense—ain’t nobody got time for that! Well luckily, you can switch up your beauty routine tonight to help get you back on track. Here are a few of my favorite cruelty-free beauty sleep essentials.
MyFacePillow – This is an anti-aging, anti-acne pillow. Say what, right?! It’s crazy to think about, but sleeping on your face, which most of us do, can lead to dreaded wrinkles and breakouts. This pillow prevents your face from smooshing against your pillow as you sleep. It also happens to be super duper comfortable because it’s made with memory foam. When mah face isn’t resting peacefully on this heavenly cushion, my kitteh, Conan, goes nappies on it (←testament to its cozitude factor). Don’t worry, I cover it with a t-shirt so I don’t get kitty fur and booty follicles all up in my grill come sleepy time. 😉
Essence of Vali’s “Sleep Soothing Mist” – You just need a few spritzes of this calming blend of sleepy time essential oils (lavender, marjoram, cedarwood & ylang/ylang) on your pillowcase and sheets for it to work its magic. I fell head of heels in love with it’s floral, herbal, woody scent.
Organic Cotton Sleep Mask – Blocking out any bit of light as you drift off into slumberland is key to a good night of beauty sleep. a I found of bunch of super cute, organic eye masks on Etsy! There are so many pretty fabrics and patterns to choose from, so have fun with these!
Herkimer diamond – I’ve been sleeping with a Herkimer Quartz “diamond” behind my pillow for years now. These gorgeous, sparkly stones are supposed to help you remember your dreams better. It might be new age-y and hokey, but hey, it can’t hurt.
What are some of your favorite beauty sleep must-haves?
