Beauty Sleep 101: Products to Help You Snooze Better

New year, new you! If you’ve vowed to get more sleep this year, you aren’t alone—and you probably need all the help that you can get, too. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we believe that improving sleep is one of the best enhancements you can make to your beauty routine. You’ll feel better, your skin will look better, and you’ll be far more motivated to handle everything life throws your way. Here are some tips for getting the beauty sleep of your life—plus a few of our favorite products to help you get there.

First things first: the technology has got to go. While they’re some of our world’s greatest advancements, those tables and smartphones just don’t belong in bed with you. Our suggestion? Pick up an actual book and make a commitment to read a chapter or two each night. It will give you something to anticipate, and it’s much more likely to lull you off into dreamland. Studies show, in fact, that looking at a bright screen for longer than an hour can make you more alert, precisely at a time when you should be ready to wind down for the day.

Soothe your senses by massaging an aromatic moisturizer into your skin. Gently manipulating your skin is an easy way to relax your mind and body, while a soft scent calms your nerves. Try John Masters Organics Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Milk ($16.99)—the light vanilla is warm, while the citrus notes add some radiance to the milky notes.

Your skin does the majority of its work overnight, so if another resolution is to achieve a clearer complexion you may want to invest in a nourishing treatment like Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($40.99). It’s infused with smoothing collagen, brightening vitamin C, and illuminating camu berries, all of which work together to reveal more brilliant skin by morning.

Lighting a candle while you sleep isn’t a good idea, but a NEST Fragrances Reed Diffuser ($41.99) will fill your bedroom with a potent fragrance that will easily relax frayed nerves and soothe your senses. The Vanilla Orchid and Almond scent is a particularly good choice for overnight, when warm nutty notes combine with coconut milk, vanilla, and amber to help you get a great night’s sleep.

Sometimes it’s hard to sleep no matter what you do. In many cases, the best solution is to create a blackout so that your eyes don’t have to deal with any niggling light. The London Bath & Beauty Printed Sleep Mask ($3.99) is a cute and economical solution that slips on easily. It’s made from soft satin and feels perfect against the skin.

4 Products to Soothe Sensitive Skin

Coping with sensitive skin is, well, a sensitive issue. There’s lots of trial and error involved, and it can often result in unnecessary dollars spent, tons of product wasted, and endless frustration. Anyone who regularly wages war with ruddy skin, irritation, and itchiness knows this all too well.

In the interest of alleviating your stress (which, by the way, can make those sensitive skin woes even worse) and easing your skin’s discomfort, we’ve rounded up four of the most effective products for sensitive skin. The next time your cheeks, nose, and forehead decide to flare up, you’ll have just the thing in your beauty arsenal to put an end to the misery.

Moisturize Gently

A healing moisturizer is the key to soothing inflamed skin that doesn’t respond to traditional products. Pevonia Soothing Sensitive Skin Cream ($48.79) is formulated specifically to treat redness resulting from irritation and rashes. Its cocktail of aloe and propolis helps relax oversensitive patches and decongestion. Your skin does its best work overnight, so apply it liberally before bed and enjoy softer, more comfortable skin by morning.

 

Treat Specifically

Sometimes it’s just a few select areas that need a little TLC. Keep a tube of Avene Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate ($29.99) in your medicine cabinet for those moments when your skin really freaks out and needs immediate treatment. Free of parabens and fragrances, it diminishes ruddiness and calms the symptoms of rosacea. It’s also hypoallergenic, so you can feel safe using it when your skin needs some serious help.

 

Cleanse Softly

Avoid cleansers that strip your skin and opt for a milder product, like bareMinerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam ($19.99). Infused with gentle elderflower and rosemary extracts, it drenches skin with moisture will leaving it soft and refreshed. A little bit goes a long way—that’s important to remember when your skin is sensitive. Avoid overusing products or doing too much to your skin in general.

Cover Up

Sometimes you have no option but to conceal sensitive skin before you head out the door. It’s a good idea to keep a potent product like Dermablend Cover Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($26.99) on hand for such emergencies. Available in a whopping 21 shades (there is truly one for every skin tone!), it provides instant full coverage on even the most difficult spots. Long-lasting coverage means you’ll never have to worry about it smudging or budging, and essential sunscreen protects your skin from those harmful ultraviolet rays.
