1. Sleep on silky sheets for hair that shines
It can be super frustrating when you go to bed with perfect
hair and wake up with a tangled crazy mess. Try using a silk or satin pillowcase
to keep hair from frizzing. When you roll around in your sleep on a regular
pillowcase your hair can get tangled and knotty, which leaves you waking up
with an unruly bedhead. Sleeping on a silky pillowcase assures that your hair
glides across the pillow to wake up with the same hair you went to bed with, if
not shinier. Score!

2. Get an eye mask for restorative ZZZs
Slip on an eye mask for nights where you want to get in a
super deep sleep. Having that little extra coverage between your eyes and any
light that peeks through your windows can help keep you asleep on lazy days. Try
it out this weekend for a day you want to sleep in and get some extra beauty

3. Plan for 8 hours
If you’re having trouble getting out of bed in the morning,
it’s probably because you aren’t getting enough sleep. It can be even harder in
these chilly winter months to be an early bird. But if you hop in bed at 10
p.m. rather than staying up to watch yet another episode on Netflix, you’ll be
thanking yourself in the a.m.
4. Try a hydrating
The secret to looking well rested and awake in the morning
is having bright, glowing skin. Try out a hydrating night facemask to give your
skin the moisture it needs and balance out any dry, flaky patches. For our GL
girls with oily/combination skin, look for a hydrating mask specific to your
skin type to avoid breakouts.

5. Dark room, cool temp
The environment that you sleep in can totally affect how
well you actually stay asleep. It’s super important that you turn off the noise,
shut the blinds and close your door at night so that nothing can disturb you during
your beauty rest hours. Keeping your body at a cool temp is also a factor. So,
if you find yourself overheating at night, switch out a heavy comforter for a
lighter fluffy duvet.
