Daylight Savings Tips

Daylight savings time is a bit of a cruel joke for parents. There is this whole notion of getting an extra hour sleep only to have your kids wake up bright and early at 6:00am, 5:00am and even 4:00am! To recover from the time change, we are sharing some of our favorite ways to recoup and unwind as we settle into the winter months.

It’s important to take time to unwind before bed to ease the mind because a consistent routine every day can help you fall asleep more quickly and reliably. Lighting an aromatic candle will help calm the nerves before bed. Try Le Feu de L’eau Le Vert Candle, $62

While we sleep, the cells making up our skin are hard at work trying to repair all the damage that has been accumulated during the whole day overnight. This is the time to utilize nighttime skincare to help repair, nourish and regenerate. Try Le Couvent des Minimes Loving Care Body Balm, $32

People sleep for approximately one-third of their lives and studies have shown the benefits of sleep have long-lasting effects on your health and well-being.

Not getting enough sleep can wreak havoc on the skin. For some relief we love Glytone AcneLotionFormulated with 1% Salicylic Acid, the non-irritating Glytone Acne Lotion works to penetrate the pores to slough away dead skin cells and boosts cell renewal to combat acne. This gentle formula is great at night with its unique concentration of ingredients such as Diglycol that works to enhance the penetration of the acne-clearing ingredient for more effective, optimum delivery; Bisabolol that provides anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory benefits as well as reduces flaking and restores suppleness to skin, enhancing its appearance and a unique hydro-gel matrix decreases skin dryness by retaining moisture, providing skin with continuous hydration to leave it thoroughly moisturized and soft to the touch. Over time this works to control acne blemishes, acne pimples, blackheads and white heads.
