I am living proof that the term beauty sleep is real… I may turn into a pumpkin at midnight and I am way more fun after 8 hours of great sleep. It took me a while to realize how important it is to prioritize sleep. And being honest here, I’m willing to invest in good sleep if it helps me perform in life, work, and relationships. Take a look at my three-part formula for a night of deep sleep. 

Slip Pure Silk Pillowcase

This anti-aging, anti-wrinkle pillowcase not only has supported my skin and hair, but the way it feels is so delightful. I’ve noticed less frizz and fewer fine lines. 

Not willing to spend this much on a pillowcase? Take a look at this one. (Woah, that’s a lot of 5-star reviews)

Sleep in a cold, dark room

This tip requires you to buy nothing but works wonders for a deep snooze. They say you know your room is dark enough when you cannot see your hand in front of your face. My perfect temperature is a lovely 68 degrees. There’s plenty of evidence that supports this method. They say it may even support healthy fat loss...You can read more here. 

Slip Pure Silk Eye Mask

Major princess vibes… I never thought this small silk accessory would deliver such an amazing sleep. It presses against the eyes perfect which I believe helps me doze off. In addition, It does a great job of blocking out all light so I’m not woken up when the sun rises at 5:35 A.M. Just like the pillowcase, the silk fabric leaves no marks on my face, unlike other eye masks.

In addition to these tips, I enjoy grabbing a good book, making a cup of tea and burning your favorite candle to de-stress from your day. I'm loving this ginger tea by Yogi with a small spoonful of this Calm Magnesium, and the nellamoon Haven candle. 

How are you getting your best sleep? And just out of curiosity, how many hours so you need to be a lovely human the following morning? Let me know on Instagram @nellamoon.
