If you ladies are like me...you LOVE your beauty rest!
While I was at Charlotte Fashion Week I got the pleasure of meeting the team of SleepSwag. I wouldn't miss out on an opportunity to talk about two of my favorite things: Fashion & Sleep! lol. They told me about how I can get MORE and BETTER sleep!
Now we're all familiar with sleep masks, but SleepSwag sleep masks aren't your ordinary sleep masks. SleepSwag masks are made with sueded silk for a comfy cool feel. The band isn't made out of elastic so it doesn't hurt, mess up your hair, or stretch over time. I thought sleep masks were just a cute bed accessory, but there's a lot more to it.
SleepSwag sleep masks are designed to keep light out and diminish the effects of electronics. This is important because darkness signals your body to produce more melatonin. Melawhattt? Melatonin. lol. It is a naturally occurring hormone that regulates your body's sleep-wake cycle. Additionally, sleep masks help to increase Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. REM is the deep sleep cycle usually entered around 7 to 8 hours of sleep. This is where dreams happen, information is retained, and your body sorts through emotions, memories, and stress. REM also helps with your mood and energy for the next day. I know when I get a good night's sleep, I wake up happy and ready to take on my day! Otherwise, I'm grouchy, unproductive, and wake up ready to get right back in the bed. lol. Unfortunately, many of us do not get the benefits of getting a full night's rest, interrupting our REM, and leaving us drained.
I don't know about you, but I NEED my beauty rest. lol. Visit SleepSwag to purchase your sleep masks and let me know how it works for you! They take some getting used to, but don't give up!
