Two very important things in our lives are self-care and getting a good night’s sleep. They are also intertwined, as a good self-care routine at bedtime can help the body and mind relax for a lovely sleep. At Nakin we believe that self-care is hugely important and have an easy-to-follow self-care routine for the evening as below. This routine will take your body and mind to a different place and prepare you for bedtime in the nicest possible way.
Have A Mineral Bath
A bath before bed is super relaxing and it can also be a nourishing time for our bodies. Set some time aside to have a bath using dead sea salts, which are healing for our skin and also give us a mineral boost from the intense nutrients found in them, such as magnesium.
Carry Out Your Skincare Routine
Taking time to take care of your skin before bed is a great way to end the day and makes you feel good, plus keeps your face and neck in great condition. Our systems rejuvenate when we are asleep, and this is why it is known as beauty-sleep. Feeding your skin at bedtime is really beneficial to the face and neck as it is when our skin repairs and detoxes. So, applying great ingredients helps your skin to do its job, plus is calming and relaxing at the same time.

Use Relaxing Essential Oils
Nature has given us many things and one of them is special plants that have the ability to relax us. We can utilise them in essential oils and they only cost a few pounds. We especially love Lavender and Vetiver. You can add a few drops to your bath or combine with a pure massage oil and give the body a relaxing and caring massage. You can also find all sorts of sleep aids such as essential oil pillow sprays, that will have your room smelling gorgeous and help to send you off to the land of nod.
Relax on a Bed of Nails
This one might be new to some of us and may not sound relaxing at all, but it really is and is based on ancient meditation and healing practices. They are not really a bed of nails, instead this is a mat with thousands of small spikey plastic bits, and they work in a similar way to acupuncture. Lie on your bed of nails for ten to twenty minutes and completely relax. They can take some getting used to and you might want to start using them with a t-shirt underneath. However, the results are fantastic as they calm and relax us, plus release endorphins. A bed of nails can also heal aches and pains, and they have fantastic customer reviews for all sorts of issues. You can use the mat with all the body areas and there are special versions for the neck and face.
After following our self-care bedtime routine, you will feel calm and relaxed plus stress will have floated away, so all that is left is to have a blissful night’s sleep.
