Sleeping on a silk pillowcase offers big beauty benefits for little to no effort.
Many of us get ‘crush wrinkles’ from sleeping on our side or front. These start off as temporary wrinkles but over time, can turn into the real deal. The good news? Studies have shown that swapping to a silk pillowcase can reduce wrinkles in the long run.
When it comes to hair, silk pillowcases are a genius way to reduce the amount of frizz and knots that form while you’re tossing and turning. By the time your alarm goes off, your hair will be silky smooth and easy to manage.
Dr. LeWinn’s Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Overnight Sleep Mask
The most effective way to see real skin benefits come morning? By applying a rejuvenating skincare mask before bed.
Dr. LeWinn's Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Overnight Sleep Mask contains an advanced complex of active ingredients in a dual delivery system to transform and renew skin overnight. The two-serums-in-one are formulated with collagen peptides (to help lift, firm and plump), a sleep fragrance utilising Dreamscentz™ technology (to help improve sleep quality), Dawnergy™ (to boost radiance) and Synchrolife™ (to protect against digital pollution).
Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Overnight Sleep Mask is a mask with a serum-like texture and should be applied as the last step in your skincare routine, two to three nights per week. After dispensing a few pumps to the palm of your hand, mix together in your fingertips and gently massage into your face and neck area. To double down on results, use in conjunction with Dr. LeWinn's Ultra R4 range. The final step: wake up with a glow.
If you struggle to drift off, a sleep supplement can enhance your wind-down routine. Bonus points if your chosen supplement comes in the form of a warm tea or beverage – simply taking a moment to sit still and enjoy your drink will help set you up for a restful night’s sleep.
While there is no such thing as a ‘quick fix’, certain ingredients, such as tart cherry, lemon balm and valerian, have been proven to help calm the body and promote sleep. Always speak to your doctor before adding any sleep supplements to your diet.
According to the Sleep Foundation, some scents and aromas may promote better sleep, helping you to fall asleep sooner and wake up feeling refreshed. Scents like lavender, rose and camomile have a relaxing effect, and can also help nix bedtime anxiety.
A pillow spray is the easiest way to add aromatherapy to your evening routine. These simple-yet-effective sprays contain a mix of essential oils and can be sprayed straight onto your pillow before you hop into bed. Easy as that.
