Everyone’s had nights where no amount of tossing and turning will put us to sleep. Sure, you’ve tried all the usual things like counting sheep or reading a book (and maybe even some unusual things like sleep hypnosis videos on YouTube), but sometimes it just isn’t enough. So what could be the issue, and how can Wake help?
Why you can’t sleep:
Many things can disturb your sleep. Experts attribute inability to fall asleep to everything from stress, anxiety, and overthinking to too much caffeine before bed. Sleep is necessary for your body to function as it’s supposed to. Losing sleep can affect your ability to focus and lead productive and motivated days.
In addition to leaving unseemly dark circles under your eyes, not sleeping can actually hinder your skin’s ability to repair and regenerate overnight.
What can you do about it?
Experts have many suggestions to help you fall asleep quicker. Exercising regularly, avoiding caffeine and heavy meals before bed, and listening to soothing music can all help you achieve peak-sleepiness.
They have also suggested a strong link between sleep and skin; your skin will benefit from good sleep, and your sleep will benefit from the right skincare routine.
In addition, experts suggest creating the right sleep environment with comfortable bedding and the right amount of sound and light for your sleep habits. Changing your mind about sleeping can also be a powerful tool to help you think of sleeping as something you get to do, instead of a burden or a chore.
How can Wake help?
Good skincare is an important part of making sure you get good sleep. Washing your face before bed is important to rid your skin of grime and toxins and help your skin breathe and repair overnight. Using an overnight moisturiser is also important so that your skin doesn’t dry out while sleeping in a dehydrating and low-humidity environment.
Wake’s Facial Cleansing Gel is a gentle cleanser formulated with natural ingredients like aloe and glycerin to naturally nourish and cleanse skin and increase skin hydration. Pair it with our Daily Face Moisturiser to moisture skin and combat grime, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready for a good night’s sleep.
And, on those nights where just nothing seems to help, you can always rely on Wake’s Brightening Eye Gel to brighten eyes, diminish wrinkles, and reduce inflammation for a more refreshing morning look.
Building an evening routine with Wake products can help you unwind while getting rid of grime, giving you time to relax into the sleepytime mindset. We are always encouraging people to get good sleep for the sake of your skin– and when you can’t, you can trust our products to make you look refreshed and rejuvenated every AM.
