Are you Sleepless in Seattle like me? I find a lot of us are. This pandemic isn’t very pretty and a bit stressful too.
So here are a few tips I use or have started to use to get better sleep that I find are working and make me look better when I wake up too.
Drinking tea like Chamomile or Holy Basil are calming to the nervous system and great to enjoy a cup an hour or so before you go to bed.
Buy fresh lavender online and get some muslin or organza bags you can find at the craft or Dollar store. Make yourself some fresh lavender bud sachets. Place in pillowcase or hang from the bed post. The soothing and calming scent will make you feel relaxed. You can even make an eye mask with them if you like to sew.
Take a bath…Especially if you are a shower guy or gal. Baths are miracle workers and can really settle you down after a long day. Even more so now. Use Epsom salts and add a few drops of jojoba and lavender oil. I like the brand called Aura Cacia. Did you know they even make lavender tea? So delightful to the tongue and to your spirits.
If you want to refresh tired feet soak them in a water basin and give them a bath with a few drops of peppermint oil.
Discover Spongelle... it is a hand wash buffer sponge that gives you at least 40 hand washings and sanitizes too. More effective at removing germs and dirt than soap alone. The best part it has aromatherapy like Thyme & Tea Tree Oil. You can use it in a bath,in the shower or hand washing. You can even travel with it. Since we need to wash our hands often and haven’t been able to get manicures. I love to use this to keep clean especially for behind the finger nails. I’ve cut my nails back and love how clean and soft yet not dry my hands are.
A good nights sleep I think also requires clean pretty sheets and a lush BETTER pillow. I found a pillow that is great to not only sleep with but helps with sleep wrinkles,Morning puffiness and marks. Bye Bye puffy face when you wake up in the morning!
Sleep and Glow is designed with your face in mind! And is the brand and I can’t wait for you to check it out too.
Make a nightly SLEEP ritual… and I wish you Sweet Dreams!
This week I featured these tips on River City Live on TV here in Jacksonville Florida. The video is available below and or on YouTube too.
