Today’s topic: Beauty sleep. Yes it’s a real thing, but much like drinking enough water, cleaning our makeup brushes regularly, and other aspirational healthy habits, you can file getting enough sleep under the list of things we should do, but don’t always get around to. Just ask Michael Breus, MD, author of Beauty Sleep , who says that a deficiency in sleep results in a lackluster complexion because “when you’re tired, blood doesn’t flow efficiently”. To ensure a somber slumber, and to reap the beauty benefits of a good night’s rest, keep these all-natural aromatherapy boudoir essentials on deck.
