1. SET UP YOUR ROUTINE
You just came back home after work or simply finished working remotely, so head strait into bathroom. CLEANSE your skin. You’ve probably have been touching your face sever-al times during the day with the same fingers that have been touching the computer key-board or other. Eventually have a shower. Apply your FAVOURITE or PRESCRIBED SKIN ROUTINE already then, not just before bed. Let it settle before you rub it into the pillow. SET UP THE TIME YOU WANT TO GO TO SLEEP AND WAKE UP EVERY DAY. GET 7-9 HOURS SLEEP. Make no exceptions for the weekend! “I can’t change your life till I can get you to change your daily routine.”Mike Murdock
2. PREPARE YOUR BED AND PILLOW
Your pillow stays with you for more than six hours every night, is that right? How often do you change your shirt?…… So, how often do you change your pillow? And … what mate-rial is it made of? … Did you know SILK IS ANTI-AGEING? Thanks to it’s structure it does not absorb the sweat like other materials, therefore all the moisture you are producing at night is rubbed right back on your skin and scalp. It is the best natural skin and scalp moisturiser protecting the NATURAL SKIN BARIER. PREPARE YOUR SLEEPING PLACE and know it is waiting for you.
3. TURN OFF YOUR PHONE, TV AND COMPUTER AT LEAST TWO HOURS BEFORE YOUR BED TIME
The blue light produced by these devises can interrupt the Melatonin production, “the hormone of darkness” as discussed earlier. Not mentioning the way it can affect your brain work at night. If you watch stress induced movies or stories, It will simply had to work first on calming your nervous system until it can work on the beneficial ways ie. PRODUCING COLLAGEN etc. It’s nothing better for me than LISTEN TO SLEEP MEDITATION.
4. CUT YOUR DRINKS TWO HOURS BEFORE BED
That can be a hard one, however if you land in bed two hours before you plan to fall asleep – it is possible. That way YOU WON’T HAVE TO GET UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT to pass urine.
5. COFFEE!!! CUT!
Have only one a day and latest at 1 PM. If you use to have more than one switch the first one at the morning for a GREEN TEA with GOJI BERRIES. The green tea contains caf-feine and the goji berries are a natural source of energy.
6. JOURNAL YOUR THINGS
Big one! If you write down everything you have to do for every day, you are organised. Tick the done things and underline those for next day. You can only do as much and that is okay. At least you are going with the plan. This will give you peace of mind and allow you to sleep calmly while EVERYTHING IS GO-ING TO TURN ALRIGHT AT THE END – REMEMBER!
7. EVENING WALK
Nothing better than a shot of ENDORPHINS at the evening and the best natural source is your own body, so exercise but IN MODERATION. Too high SEROTONIN level might keep you awake. Just like too much wine will do. EVERYTHING IN MODERATION especially at the evening.
8. HOT SHOWER
It is the best to slow down your blood pressure and make you feel comfortable. 30 min after a hot shower your DBR diastolic blood pressure lowers significantly, your HR heart rate slows down, it stimulates your RS respiratory system positively, calms down the CNS nervous system and relaxes the MSS Musculo-skeletar system. Hot water kills bacteria, brings a relive from pain, decreases cortisol – the stress hormone levels in blood. What about SKIN? Hot temperature builds up NATURAL SKIN BARRIER, increases HYDRATION, speeds up RECOVERY of both elevated WATER LOOS and SKIN PH, decreases skin sebum content so it helps with ACNE OUTBREAKS. Or just put warm socks on 🤗 to sleep.
9. COLD ROOM AND OPENED WINDOW
It lowers the CARBON-DIOXIDE and besides cold, fresh air will keep your blood oxygenated while you breath deeply during the sleep allowing your body to GET RID faster OF THE ACCUMULATED TOXINS during the day. Better oxygenated blood circulates easier and bring more nutrients to your organs and skin.
10. EAR PLUGS, IF YOU MUST
And a vibrating watch on your hand or a partner to wake you up 🤗
11. REACH OUT FOR A RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS NIGHT MOISTURISER
TO MAKE THE SLEEP EVEN MORE BENEFICIAL FOR YOUR SKIN AND PREVENT AGEING IT IS IM-PERATIVE TO DEVELOP HYDRATING SKINCARE ROUTINE RICH IN HUMECTANTS. My favourite before VITAMIN A is HYALURONIC ACID cream and OBAGI HYDRATE. Humectants bond with water molecules to increase the water content in the skin itself. Glycerin is one of the more typical and effective water binding agents. Humectants can also have emollient properties. They are non-comedogenic and highly nourishing.
12. SLEEP ON YOUR BACK
To prevent skin from wrinkling around your eyes, cheeks, neck and cleavage choose a soft puffy PILLOW (remember SILK COVER) THAT CAN YOU WRAP AROUND YOUR NECK and fall asleep comfortably. It can be a hard one to do at first but ONCE you train yourself to do it TWICE you won’t sleep anymore on your front knowing what difference it makes.
13. BONUS POINT FOR INSOMNIACS
Chamomile tea makes wonders. Brew your tea an hour before sleep. Pour a hot water 90 Celsius over and cover it for 7 minutes. Drink it while hot. Don’t forget to use the toilet be-fore bed. Don’t like the Chamomile Tea? Pop in the OptiSleep.
🌝 ✨ 😴 Sleep well everyone 🤗 Kornia
