How To Get The Best Beauty Sleep.

I am a firm believer in beauty sleep and getting lots of it. It is so important to pamper your skin and take some time to relax during the evening that way you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day. In today's post I am going to share a few things that help me achieve my best beauty sleep. 

First things first, I like to wash my sheets at least once a week to keep things feeling fresh. (Nothing feels better than showering and shaving your legs and then slipping into clean sheets at night, am I right, ladies?) The next thing that helps me sleep better at night is wearing a matching pajama set. I know this might sound silly, but wearing a matching set really does make me feel like I have my life together. This peachy-pink set that I am wearing is from Target and is under $20! I also love this floral set, this striped set and this polka dot set.

The next step to achieving maximum beauty sleep is by giving your skin a little TLC before you tuck into bed for the night. I like to start off by removing my makeup from the day with some cleansing towelettes and then I apply a few pumps of serum and moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated while I sleep. My go-to skincare combo lately has been the Restoring Night Serum by Skin Laundry and the Confidence in a Cream by IT Cosmetics.

After I finish my skincare regimen, I like to drink a tall glass of lemon water to hydrate my body and then I really start to unwind for the evening. I find that unplugging from my phone and social media at least 30 minutes before bedtime helps my brain to relax. So instead of staring at a screen, I like to put on some piano music and write in my journal or read the bible. After that, it's time for bed. I like to get at least 8-10 hours of sleep every single night that way I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day (after coffee, of course ;)

Side note: please excuse the lack of headboard/decor in our bedroom. Joseph and I are working one room at a time to get this apartment feeling like a home and our bedroom seems to be the last thing on our list ha!
