Sleep is as crucial for our health (and survival) as food, water, and air, but a thousand unfortunate factors of modern life make it impossible for most of us to get a quality night of beauty sleep. If pandemic anxiety, a new season of Good Girls, or worrying about tomorrow’s meeting is keeping you up at night, you’re not alone. According to the CDC, almost 40 percent of adults don’t get the recommended 7-9 hours of Zzz’s per night. That’s where these sleep essentials come in.
One positive outcome of this growing epidemic and so many sleepless nights is an eruption of products meant to help you snooze better. From aromatherapy that relaxes the mind to technology that helps your circadian rhythm to fabrics meant to cool the body, we’ve rounded up the best sleep-inducing products that the internet has to offer. If you have the feeling your sleep routine needs a major overhaul, these 20 products are coming to your rescue. Give your nighttime routine a major makeover and shop the best sleep-boosting products below.
If you have trouble falling asleep and haven't tried CBD, you might be missing out on the best sleep of your life. These roller balls include a Calming Roller with CBD, lavender, bergamot, and rosewood. Roll on your temples or wrists before bed and get ready to be soothed into slumber. Use code "theeverygirl" for 20% off the first order!
How you sleep at night is not just about what you do in the 30 minutes before bed, but how you spend your entire day. While this is an alarm clock to wake you up in the morning, it balances your circadian rhythm to help your body know when to wake up, which means it will also know when to fall asleep at night.
A silk pillowcase may not help you sleep, but it will help you beauty sleep. This pillowcase is good for your hair and skin so it won't cause dryness, wrinkles, hair breakage, or skin breakouts. Trust me: you'll want to get to sleep when each slumber is like a high-end beauty treatment. 10+ colors available.
Because what can't GOLDE do? One of our go-to wellness brands has a delicious powder to get in some magnesium for extra relaxation and stress relief. Bonus: it's made with real superfoods and tastes like delicious coconut water. If your sleep problem is winding down after a stressful day, try a superfood supplement like this one to naturally relax the body.
Ever wonder why you sleep so well in hotel rooms? Odds are it's the blackout curtains. Good news: you can DIY your own at home, even if you're not willing to give up your pretty window treatments. Attach this liner on the inside of your curtains to block 100% of light (AKA you can sleep until noon and never even know it). This liner also creates a barrier to block out external noise, AND prevents heat loss in cold weather and cool loss in summer. Basically, it's the one-stop shop for a relaxing environment.
A lot of promising studies (and my own personal experience) show that aromatherapy can help the body relax. Try a diffuser that won't look cluttered on your bedside table (because clutter causes stress, duh!) and diffuse a lavender essential oil to help you fall asleep. 4 colors available.
If blackout curtains aren't enough (or light's coming from inside your bedroom, like a clock or night light), try a sleep mask. This one is made of silk, so it's good for your skin and comes with a roll-on to deepen relaxation. 2 colors available.
Because sometimes all we need to get better sleep is replacing our tired old camp T-shirt and sweatpants. The fabric of this sleep shirt is so luxurious and breathable, and going bottomless means you'll be less likely to overheat at night. The super cute pattern doesn't hurt either.
Maybe the secret to a blissful night of sleep comes from your senses. This genius sleep machine is not like the ocean sound machine you had as a kid. This one projects a soft blue light on your ceiling and invites you to breathe along as the light expands and retracts. Trust me: you'll be asleep within seconds.
Sure, you've thought to track your steps, but have you ever thought about tracking your sleep? Besides all of the other features you know and love on your FitBit, this one tracks your sleep cycles so you know when you're in light, deep, and REM stages. Knowledge is power, and knowing how your body sleeps can provide you with all the insight you need to get better sleep. 4 colors available.
When looking for pajamas, you want to find items that are breathable enough to prevent overheating. Even if it's freezing outside and you're tempted to sleep in flannel, layers of blankets and hot fabric might cause your body to heat up and then wake up. We love these comfy, ribbed boxers that are as breathable as they are soft. 5 colors available.
On those nights you're feeling jet-lagged, overstimulated from your day, or know you'll have trouble falling asleep, try this all-natural supplement. It contains melatonin to improve sleep quality and help you get sleepy, but also contains natural ingredients like magnesium and organic valerian to promote overall relaxation.
So you already know you need breathable fabric for your pajamas, but breathable fabric is important for your bedding too. This cotton bedspread will make your room feel like a spa, thanks to lightweight cotton material and a lightly waffled texture. 2 colors available.
I personally could make the argument that any skincare helps you sleep (knowing I got my retinol working helps me sleep like a baby!), but this insanely hydrating sleep mask contains lavender for an extra boost of relaxation. Bonus: lavender can relax the skin (bye, bye breakouts!), just like it relaxes you.
PSA: the type of pillow is crucial for sleep quality, so ditch the $3 stack you've been sleeping on for years and opt for this adjustable memory foam so you can customize the comfort-level of your dreams. Add or remove foam based on sleep position, preference, or even specific needs (which change night-to-night). No more waking up with neck cricks or stiff backs!
If self-care is your thing, give yourself the gift of a luxurious bedtime routine to soothe you right into sleep. This set comes with a moisturizing oil to slather head to toe before bed and rinse off in the morning for your silkiest skin ever, and a non-toxic candle with notes that will help you relax.
