BEAUTY SLEEP 101 – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

SWITCH OFF YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES BEFORE BED 
Did you know: studies have shown that our electronic devices emit blue light which trick our brain into thinking it is still day time, thus preventing us from fully winding down at night. Switch off your electronic devices and bright lights 1-2 hours before heading to bed to get a deeper and more restful sleep.

AROMATHERAPY
Use scent to get better sleep! Essential oils are known for relieving stress, relaxing the body and promoting more restful sleep. Lavender oil is most commonly used as it can help with mild insomnia and anxiety. Another popular option is Clary Sage oil, often associated with relaxation and having anti-depressing effects. Incorporate essentials oils into your bedtime routine by mixing a few drops with a premium-quality carrier oil such as jojoba oil onto your body. Alternatively, use a reed diffuser or humidifier.
