Setting the Tone for Sleep: Bath and Beauty Basics


 Bath and beauty essentials

You want to sleep well, and we want that for you too. In order to achieve this, you need more than just a great mattress. In fact, you need more than just the right sleep system. Your night of sleep begins well before you actually crawl into bed at all. What you do throughout the evening is a huge factor in how quickly you fall asleep, whether or not you stay asleep all night long, when you wake up, and how you feel the next morning. This is why we are so pleased to have bath and beauty basics for sale on our website, because they are a big piece of the puzzle!

How Your Nightly Routine Affects Your Sleep

Everyone needs a bedtime routine, from babies to kids to grown-ups. Doing the same routine each night tells your brain that daytime is over and it’s time to rest. The question is, what should you do? Many people like taking a bath, soothing themselves with relaxation-inducing scents, putting on nighttime creams and lotions, and other bath and beauty basics.

Beyond anything else, ensure that your routine is relaxing. A bedtime routine that includes playing video games until midnight is no good at all! This is known as “sleep hygiene.” Just like dental hygiene or personal hygiene, sleep hygiene is a set of rituals that you implement each day to get great sleep at night and feel alert and refreshed during the day. How do you know if you need to make changes to your routine in order to improve your sleep hygiene? Frequent sleep disturbances and daytime sleepiness are the most telling signs of poor sleep hygiene. Taking too long to fall asleep is another big one.

Obtaining healthy sleep is important for both physical and mental health. Getting the deep, uninterrupted sleep your body needs will improve your daily productivity and overall quality of life. In fact, improving your sleep is the most important thing you can do for your overall health! That is why if you don’t have the bath and beauty basics you need to develop the perfect bedtime routine, you should make today the day you change that.
