8 Beauty Essentials For Your Best Sleep Ever


How often do you respond to a friendly “How are you?” with a blunt and semi-angry “tired?" It seems that feeling sleepy has become the new norm, a product of packed schedules, long to-do lists and too much late night coffee. We all know that getting more sleep would solve our problems, so why don’t we make it a priority?

Sometimes it’s just a matter of making the time, which can feel challenging because it requires stepping away from the screens that keep us plugged in. We know that a healthful bedtime routine starts long before getting under the covers, and what better way to calmly wind down than with some beauty products filled with soothing scents and rejuvenating ingredients.

From calming aromatherapy to the best hydrating sleep mask, consider this your guide to getting some replenishing beauty rest.
