6 easy ways to better your beauty sleep

 
 
Sometimes sleep can seem more like a reward for making it through a crazy day than an essential part of your…beauty routine? Listen up ladies, beauty sleep isn’t just a cute saying or an excuse to hide under the covers for a few more hours; it plays a huge part in feeling and looking your best. According to recent studies, other people can actually notice if you seem sleep deprived and find you less attractive. Here are six tips to help you hunnies out: 

 

1. Start a habit
Allow yourself 8 hours of sleep per night, no more, no less. The laziness and grogginess you feel from lack of sleep actually occurs when you over-sleep too. Once you get into this routine, you’ll fall asleep much easier as your body becomes accustomed to a steady cycle.

 

2. Ditch the devices 
Avoid bringing your laptop into bed with you--or your cell phone. Your bed should be a place to relax, not worry about checking e-mails, social media or squeezing in one last text. If your head is hittin’ the pillow with your cell in your hand, chances are you’ll stay awake much longer.

 

3. Nix the all-nighters
Feeling a sense of pride that you were up till the wee hours and are still walking the next day is a mistake many girls make. Sure, you may feel fine, but actually you’re less alert, more prone to accidents and you risk throwing off your entire sleep cycle. Eek!

 

4. Cut the cola consumption 
Late night snacking is something we’re all guilty of every once in a while. But the sugar and caffeine you consume before bed prevents your digestive system from working properly and can leave you restless and unable to fall asleep. Another reason to kick the can.

 

5. Write it down
If your main issue with getting a good night’s sleep is too many thoughts rushing through your head, try keeping a journal at your bedside. Record your thoughts as they come to you instead of building up tension in your tired body.

 

6. Say it with us…Relax! 
Try taking a hot shower before bed to relax your muscles and ease stress.  Use a lavender scented body wash—the soothing aroma is linked to starting that sense of sleepiness.
