18 Dreamy Products You NEED This National Sleep Month
March is National Sleep Month, and with many of us losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time, there truly isn't a better time to start practicing good sleep hygiene and working toward better rest every night.
While we wish we could share a singular fix for great sleep, we find that maintaining a consistent pre-bed routine and having a comfortable and relaxing sleep environment is the key to success. Keep scrolling for 18 products that have been helping us get great sleep this month.
Snow Fox Sleepy Ceramides Goodnight Skin Set: $110
It can be tough to put away our phones and turn off the TV a full hour before bedtime, but we find that making a luxe pre-sleep routine makes the process a lot easier. For us, that begins with a nighttime skincare routine, and Snow Fox's Sleepy Ceramides Goodnight Skin Set was made for just that purpose. The set consists of a facial cleansing oil, essence and sleeping mask, all with a soothing lavender scent for bedtime, and with ingredients designed to nourish the skin while you snooze.

Pillow sprays are another important part of our nightly rituals, and if you can only try one, make it Drowsy Sleep's S.O.S. Pillow Spray.

Not only does this Warmies Curly Purple Eye Mask block out light for better sleep, but it's also slightly weighted and designed to either be microwaved for warmth or chilled in the freezer, depending on what will better aid your sleep.

These stuffies have a plush exterior and weighted arms designed to give realistic hugs, creating three pounds of weight for deep pressure stimulation. We find that this makes us feel safe and calm—and gives us great sleep. Plus, who can resist the pink and red color of the Lucky Bumpas?
