The 10 Best Sleep Aid Products to Help You Get a Good Rest
Sleep is a tricky thing, the more you will it to happen the longer it takes. Clock watching doesn’t help either, especially when you know you need to be up in a few hours. And what with everything going on in the world right now, it's harder than ever to switch off.
Now, we know we can't be the only ones struggling to sleep, which is why we've collated our favorite night time necessities. While we can’t promise to cure your sleep problems, these sleep aid products can help you feel a little more relaxed and soothed by the time your head hits the pillow.
Top Tips for Sleep
Before diving in, the Cosmetify gang have rounded up our top sleep aid tips. Yes, you may already know most of them, but how many of these tips are you sticking to?
- Cut down on the screen time – the blue light is NOT your friend in the evening as it messes with your sleep cycle
- Limit your caffeine intake during the day and switch to herbal teas in the evening
- Stick to a routine with similar waking hours every day to help reset your body clock
- Delve into the world of ASMR – whether it’s rainfall sounds, soft whispers or ocean noises, soothing sounds can help you drift off quicker
- Consider buying a weighted blanket – these may be an interiors fad, but plenty have praised their ability to ease tensions and combat stress
And of course, adding some of the following natural sleep aid products into your routine can't hurt either. So, take a look at our roundup of the best sleep aid products at Cosmetify.
