Two Steps to Improve Your Sleep

The Countdown and the Wind Down

If you’ve followed Babe Lash for a while, you know we are passionate about helping each of our customers become their truest, happiest selves

So, today, we’re talking about nighttime routines and how you can improve your nightly routine to better your whole self. 


For skim-readers, here’s what we’re covering:

  • The Countdown to Bedtime
    • How much sleep you need, and what time to stop eating and drinking for an optimal night of sleep.
  • Winding Down for Bed
    • Habits that can positively or negatively affect your sleep quality.

Countdown to Bed

The Countdown to Bedtime

Believe it or not, your quality of sleep is dictatedlong before your head hits the pillow. So, what things can you do to make your nighttime snooze the best it can be?

  • Schedule your sleep
  • Schedule your caffeine
  • Schedule your beverages

Schedule Your Sleep

Let’s start with the basics. Research shows that you need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. There are lots of long-term and short-term health benefits of getting a good night’s rest. 

Below is a list of some of the benefits of getting enough sleep each night. We also added links to different studies on these topics (especially what can happen if you don’t get enough sleep) if you’d like to learn more!

Start increasing the quality and quantity of your sleep to begin the journey to a healthier and happier you. Planning to sleep is all about considering your daily schedule and making informed decisions about what you can do to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night. 

    Doctors also say that the consistency of your sleep is just as important. As tempting as it may be to stay up late or sleep in on the weekend, sticking to a routine will help keep your body on a regular sleep schedule. Schedule Your Caffeine

    Before you panic, we’re not saying you have to cut the caffeine, just schedule it. When you’re drinking caffeine, it’s important to be mindful ofwhen you drink it. There’s a lot of debate about when precisely people should stop drinking coffee to get the best quality of sleep. 

    It can take up to 10 hours to fully get caffeine out of your bloodstream. And at six hours after drinking caffeine, you still have about half of it in your body. So, what should you do? Well, unless you’re doing something where you NEED to stay awake late at night, you shouldstop drinking caffeine at least six hours before bed (and, if possible, finish drinking it 10 hours before bed).

    Depending on the time you’ve chosen to go to bed (and don’t forget that consistency is key in this regard), determine when that six-hour point is, so you can stop the caffeine and let your body begin its natural wind-down period. Switch to water, herbal tea, or decaf after that point. 

    Schedule your beverages

    Schedule Your Beverages

    There are few things more frustrating than waking up in the middle of the night, staggering through your dark bedroom, and having to relieve yourself in the restroom. Not only is it frustrating, but it can also cut into your REM sleep time (which is important for healthy and restful sleep). Luckily, there are a few easy solutions to make your nighttime rest a bit more… restful.

    By stopping drinking water (or any other beverages)two hours before bed, it will help your body feel less need to use the restroom in the middle of the night, disrupting your sleep cycle. 

    Having a sip before bed or in the middle of the night shouldn’t be an issue if you need to quench your thirst or take a pre-bedtime medication. Just avoid drinking copious amounts of water before you catch your Zzzs. 

    Consistency is Key

    Y’all know we love consistency at Babe Lash. Being consistent with your nightly schedule and making a conscious choice to go to bed early (or even early-ish) won’t make you boring, old, or a baby. We promise. 

    Obviously,life happens, and sometimes there will be nights where you won’t get enough rest or you might have to drink caffeine later in the day, or maybe you’ll still have to wake up to use the restroom in the middle of the night,and that’s okay

    Are you going to be tired the following day if you only get two hours of sleep? Yes, of course. But are you suddenly going to get high blood pressure if you have the occasional bad night? Probably not. It’s about balance

    Winding Down for Bed

    For most people, the process of “winding down” consists of quickly brushing their teeth, washing their face, using the restroom, and climbing into bed.

    There’s nothing inherently wrong with that process, but it doesn’t give your brain and body a lot of time to begin preparations for sleep. As a result, many people end up staring at the ceiling for a long time before finally falling asleep.

    We (and many smart researchers) propose this: create a consistent wind-down routine that you follow each day. It’s an easy way to signal to your brain that you’re preparing to go to sleep for the night. You may be surprised by how much it improves your ability to fall asleep quickly.

    We’ve got a few ways to get you perfectly primed for restful sleep:

    • Cool it down
    • Turn down the lights
    • Start your nighttime beauty routine
    • Get into bed

    Winding down for bed

    Cool it Down

    As you start winding down, start making it cooler in your bedroom. Since cooling down a room can take a bit of time, we recommend doing this first.

    Overwhelmingly, most doctors say that theoptimal temperature to sleep in is 65 degrees. We all have unique bodies and comfort levels, so there’s a bit of wiggle room in this regard. Try to aim for a bedroom temperature between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit (15.6 to 19.4 degrees Celsius) for a more pleasant and restful sleep.

    Studies have shown that people sleep more soundly in chillier rooms than in warmer rooms. Overheating is more likely to cause you to wake up in the middle of the night than being cold will. 

    Remember, you can always add more layers to warm up, but you can only strip down so far to cool down.

    Turn Down the Lights

    Turning down the lights in your home is an essential step in any wind-down routine. Reducing your exposure to light at night is one of the ways your body produces more melatonin (one of the critical hormones that helps you sleep). By dimming the lights and closing the curtains during your wind-down phase, your body will naturally begin to create more melatonin, which will help you fall asleep faster.

    You’ve probably been told not to look at your phone screen before bed, and although there is some debate on the topic, most doctors agree that the benefits of stopping screen time at least 30 minutes before bedtime can be beneficial. 

    Most people talk about how blue light exposure can disrupt melatonin production, but it doesn’t quite end there. Studies are showing that screen time keeps your mind psychologically active and in some cases, can increase anxiety. Decrease nighttime mental stimuli during your wind-down phase for a more peaceful sleep process.

    Start Your Nighttime Beauty Routine

    The process and routine of cleaning your face can be a good signal for your body to continue winding down for bed. Psychologically speaking, most people feel better when they are fresh and clean, so incorporating a personal grooming routine into your wind-down experience can help you go to bed easier. Better skin and better sleep. Win-win.

    Now, we realize you didn’t necessarily ask us what we recommend for a Babe Lash nighttime beauty routine, but we’re giving our advice anyway! Here are the essentials:

    • Cleanse
    • Moisturize
    • Boost your lashes and brows

    Cleanse

    Whether you wear makeup or not, cleansing your face at the end of the day is necessary, even if you’re completely exhausted. Taking that extra step in your routine to clean your face will benefit your skin and help you feel more refreshed in the morning. And, like we said, feeling clean helps you wind down faster, in turn, helping you fall asleep quicker.

    Moisturize

    After you’ve thoroughly cleansed your face and the natural oils and grime have been removed, it’s important to rehydrate your skin - even if you have naturally oily skin. At night, you will want to apply your heavier moisturizing creams. Be sure to also incorporate a good lip care regimen into your nightly routine during this step. Want to give your under-eye area a little extra love during this phase of your beauty routine? Try using an under-eye gel patch

    Boost Your Lashes and Brows

    Once your face has been cleansed, and you’ve thoroughly moisturized, it’s time to boost the lashes and brows with Essential Serum and Brow Serum. It’s best to apply your Serums to clean, dry skin and hair. We recommend following these steps to ensure you get the bestresults. Remember, being consistent with your serum application will help you get longer-looking lashes and eyebrows.

    Get into Bed

    We know that sleep can be a tricky thing for a lot of people. There are many reasons why you may have a hard time falling or staying asleep (and if you consistently are unable to sleep at night, it might be a good idea to speak with your doctor). But for those occasional needs, when you need to promote natural relaxation or need some help falling asleep, a natural sleep supplement like melatonin or ashwagandha could be beneficial.(Psst! We also might be selling supplements in the future! So keep an eye out for that.)


    Better Sleep = Better Life

    Taking time to rest and relax is important for your overall well-being. And because we’re feeling pretty excited to share our favorite bedtime routines, we wanted to also offer a couple of bonus ideas. 

    Try opening a book before going to bed. Whether you open a book to read from or a journal to write in, this is a good time to rest and grow mentally, emotionally, and physically. Meditation and mindfulness are also great ways to help you reach your zen state of mind for a more well-rested self.

    Remember, work toward a healthier and more mindful bedtime countdown, with standard routines you can count on. And as it gets closer to “snooze time” adhere to a consistent wind-down routine like cleansing, moisturizing and, applying serums.

    As we said earlier, everyone’s needs and bodies are different, so we recommend talking to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about what you personally can do to get a better night of rest for a better day tomorrow.

    I spend a little extra on good silky sheets. My grandmother always taught me that! I put my phone down a couple hours before bed, turn the ac down to 68°, fan on, and make sure I pray and take some deep breathes as a meditation and centering practice. I also go to bed at the same time or close to it every night to honory circadian rhythm.

    Love this post! I always fall asleep best and in the calmest way when I do my skincare routine, brush my hair, and just give a little self love before I actually climb into bed. I need a routine to settle my body and mind enough to know it’s time to sleep.

    Great tips!!! I have also found that doing my skincare routine 30-1hr before bed helps me fall asleep faster instead of doing so right before bed. This is because cleansing your face means you have to wet your face, which only wakes you up more. So doing my nighttime skincare routine with some time in advance allows me to wind down and feel more sleepy before getting into bed. Plus, it gives extra time for the products to actually soak into my skin, instead of my pillowcase😊

    I think that exercising in the evening gets you more tired physically so it can help you fall asleep earlier. That’s what happens to me when I do it. And the more you get tired by moving your body, the sooner you fall asleep

    My best sleep hack is when I lay in bed, I try to imagine myself in a deep sleep. I kind of tell myself “you’re sleeping very deep and soundly. You feel very relaxed and comfortable in a deep sleep,” and I feel like it helps me fall asleep faster!

    I usually sleep well but occasionally I will have anxiety that keeps me up. In this case, I try to focus my mind on something specific like counting down from 100 or being in a peaceful environment. If that doesn’t work, I try different breathing techniques. And finally, my last resort that almost always works is a yoga move where you lie on your back and slowly tense up your entire body from toe to head while breathing controlled, and then slowly release the tension from head to toe.

    Best sleep hack for me is, workout in the morning instead of night as it helps me get that adrenaline out before bed instead of getting that adrenaline rush right before bed. And always go to bed when your kids do (if you have kids) otherwise it never works out well lol

    My Top 2 Sleeping hacks:

    1. I always wash my face (makes me feel so refreshed and ready to relaxed) and follow up with good moisturizer and of course… BABELASH

    2. Kneel by your bed and list the “good” from your day… what were the “wins”, or in other words end the day being grateful. Sets you up for a peaceful nice sleep without negative stress or discouragement.

Drink lots of water! Meditate! Take vitamins! Set up a bedtime routine! Put your phone away and turn off the tv an hour before bed! Practice sleep hygiene! I could go on and on. Sleep is super important. 😘

    After a long day you kiss you husband and tell him you’re taking a bath! I turn off the lights, light a candle, take off my makeup, brush my teeth (weird right), and then just soak in tummy smelling bubbles until my whole body relaxes. When you step out you’re clean, ready for bed, and warm so you snuggle in your sheets and pass out! Works every time ✨

    I don’t mind unwinding with some TV or phone games but eventually I have to turn off screens and have it nice and quiet and dark!

    I grew up in a large family. There was always noise when I would go to bed so I have a really hard time sleeping when it’s quiet. I can’t just play white noise either because there has to be variation. I’ll put on a movie at low volume to fall asleep to and I’m out within minutes as opposed to the hour it would take me trying to fall asleep with silence.

    No phone one hour before bed, wash face, glass of water, count blessings, and 3 deep breaths when I lie down

    A lot of times I’ll put vapor in under my nose. Sounds silly but it helps my brain not think about a million things!

    I loveee warming up a heat-safe eye mask in the microwave before bed, putting it on, and doing some bed yoga (just simple stretches) to get to sleep fast – works every time ⭐️

    Consistency is key, same routine every night or whatever time your night is. In addition, don’t use that phone, computer, tv etc at least 30 minutes before trying to go to sleep.

    Sometimes all I can do to sleep is take melatonin half an hour before bedtime and keep the lights dim. I love drinking warm drinks to calm my body down.

    Getting plenty of rest at night has always been a struggle for me! Recently I’ve been trying new things that has been helping! I stop drinking caffeine before 12pm otherwise I’ll be up all night! I also drink a chamomile tea about an hour before heading to bed.

    For me the best falling asleep hack I have found, is turning off all the lights and then lighting my favorite candle on my desk beside me. I then like to read by the flickering candle light and something about the cozy scent and cozy lighting just makes me so drowsy. It puts me right to sleep!

    Have a new baby and three other kids (all boys) ….. anytime I am in bed it takes less than 1 minute to fall asleep. I’m exhausted 😂😂😂

    The best sleep remedy I’ve found that works for me is a tea blend that I fell in love with.
    Put 1 tea bag of ‘Sleepy time tea (with kava)’ and 1 tea bag of vanilla honey chamomile. You can add honey to taste or sometimes I’ll add a splash of almond milk creamer, even no sweetener. It’s so yummy plus you’ll sleep amazing without waking up groggy!
    Get that beauty sleep babes!💁🏻‍♀️

    I just recently started making myself some sleepytime tea and taking a nice, hot bath whole I drink it. It has really improved my sleep (since I have a baby who is still waking up once a night) and has helped me to wind down!

    I always turn my AC and a heating pad on about 30 minutes before I have to go to sleep so I don’t have to wait for it to get cold so I am. It over heating with the heating pad!
