CREATE THE PERFECT SLEEPING ENVIRONMENT
Experiment with these three natural sleep remedies next time you’re getting ready for bed:
1. Introduce lavender
Add a few drops of lavender essential oil for a relaxing evening bath. Lavender is one of the most reliable sleep aids. It can help you de-stress and relax by encouraging you to forget everyday worries and finish off your busy day with positive thoughts.
2. Take an evening shower
Showering does more than just cleanse your body:
- Your blood pressure reduces
- You become calmer
- You are conscious of your whole body
Support this positive effect with NIVEA’s In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner with almond oil and pamper your body with a rich body lotion before sliding under the covers.
3. Prepare your bedroom
The ideal temperature to sleep in is around 16-18 degrees Celsius. To reach this, consider:
- Opening a window or turning on a gentle fan in summer
- Snuggling under the covers in winter
Take care with sleeping near a heater or air conditioner – the air can dry out your skin.
