For the past few months, i’ve been having trouble sleeping. A lot of it stems from me not being able to shut it down at night. As a creative…I’m constantly trying to come up with concepts and ideas and I love to get my creative juices flowing, the downside of that is the inability to stop and relax. So I decided to take some much needed steps, so I could unwind and get my beauty sleep.
In my twenties I picked up the habit of being a night owl, plus i’ve always functioned more effectively at night. As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to appreciate how valuable a good night’s rest is. I reduced my caffeine intake, started drinking more water and exercising frequently, and now i’ve found a better way to wind down at night. I love playing calming music like a meditation station or some old school r&b while having a cup of chamomile tea, I find that creates a peaceful vibe. I also make sure I put my phone on do not disturb, to avoid any distractions.
However the one thing that has had the most impact on my new sleep routine, would definitely be my Olly Beauty sleep vitamins. These gummy vitamins consist of melatonin( a naturally occurring hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle) & L-Theanine(which has a calming effect). They are also great for your skin and contain ceramides that help lock in moisture and renew the skin. So not only are you feeling more relaxed, your skin is improving as well, that’s definitely a win for me! After taking the vitamins I may read a book or flip through a magazine until I start getting drowsy. Now i’m not going to say I fell asleep immediately after taking the vitamins, but I did start feeling sleepy shortly after. The gummies are infused with berries & sweet plum and are super delicious. One of the things that was important to me, was how I would feel in the morning. While these vitamins will improve your sleep, they won’t leave you feeling sluggish, instead I felt more refreshed, energized and ready to start my day. After breakfast I like to follow up with my Olly Undeniable Beauty vitamins to support my hair & nails.
Overall i’ve noticed a more regulated sleep pattern which has helped me function more efficiently throughout the day. Everyone’s experiences will definitely vary, this is what worked for me but you guys should try the Olly Beauty Sleep vitamins for yourself you can find them here at Target. If you’ve tried these or any of the other Olly Nutrition vitamins I would love to hear what you think, comment below!
