Why: It doesn’t matter how many expensive creams you slather on, how perfect your makeup is, or how new your highlights; if you’re not getting enough sleep, you’re not looking your best.

Instead of developing a nasty valium habit, I’ve been combating my insomnia with the naturally soothing effects of lavender and chamomile. Lavender and chamomile essential oils are both prescribed by aromatherapists to aid with sleep; lavender oil is known to soothe and calm, while chamomile extract provides a lulling effect that enhances sleep. A nice, warm bubble bath ($13), followed by luxurious lotion ($13), and a quick spritz of pillow mist ($10), and my day fades away as I drift off to sleep.
