Beauty sleep is a real thing. And it’s just as important as drinking your eight glasses of water a day! It’s not only important to rest well for your skin and cell renewal, but also to help bolster your immune system and improve your mental clarity. To make sure you are getting deep and uninterrupted sleep, give our tried and tested tips a go.
Set The Scene
Creating a safe haven specially built for perfect slumbers is the first way to help you wind down. Keep the lighting soft and gentle, opt for a lamp by your bed rather than leaving the room fully lit.
Try to reduce the number of screens or hours of screen-time that you indulge in once you hop into bed. It might be tempting to settle into a routine of social media scrolling to send you off to sleep, but this can disrupt your relaxation and keep you awake longer and longer! Keep a book or magazine on the bedside table, or listen to a podcast or audiobook while you recline.
If you have an iPhone, set up your “bedtime” schedule. This will give you a gentle reminder when it’s almost time to switch off and will silence notifications once bedtime is officially here.
To help your brain switch off and slide into a deep sleep, wear one of our sleep eye masks to block out any light. This is perfect for travelling, city living (where the lights never stop!) or if your partner likes to stay up later than you with their reading light on.
Not only do our eye masks all have a clever light-blocking design, but the silk eye mask range has the added benefit of reducing friction and sleep creases against the delicate eye area. The hydrating qualities of pure mulberry silk will also ensure that your eye cream sinks into the skin overnight - so not only will you be getting the best out of your sleep, but also your skincare routine!
Lately, we are delighting in making a ritual of our bedtime routine. Taking a warm shower to wash away the stress of the day, pressing a restorative night cream into our skin and slipping into blissfully soft sleepwear. Our women’s nightwear is all ethically handcrafted in Brisbane, Australia and designed to help you relax in pure comfort and luxury. Keeping a good routine of going to bed and rising at the same time each day can be very beneficial to your overall health and wellbeing.
Both bamboo sleepwear and silk sleepwear collections offer a variety of benefits, being hypoallergenic, anti-aging and anti-static. But best of all, they are incredibly soft and comfortable, you will be loathe to change out of them each morning. Layer up in pure mulberry silk or wrap yourself in organic bamboo, either way, you will be in utter bliss while you rest your weary head.
Sleep On Silk
Perfect to pair with your other Sleepy Dee silk sleepwear and accessories, or as your first foray into the world of mulberry silk, our pillowcases are a worthwhile investment to ensuring a better quality of sleep. The hypoallergenic quality of this natural fabric will reduce hayfever or seasonal allergy symptoms, reducing any discomfort. It also creates a frictionless place to lay your head, keeping your hair and skin smooth and free of sleep creases.
Pure mulberry silk also boasts thermoregulating qualities, meaning that it adjusts to suit the temperature of your body. This means your silk pillowcase will stay cool and fresh through Summer but stays cosy and comforting through the cooler seasons.
