TV presenter and writer Martha Stewart sleeps four hours a day and says that this is enough for her, actress Kate Hudson drinks soothing tea in the evening, and Jennifer Lopez's “morning” on a weekend can start closer to noon. BeautyHack talks about how celebrities build relationships with sleep.
Stewart ignores the doctors' recommendations and sleeps not for eight hours, but for four. The writer and TV presenter admits: there are many more important things in this world - you can sacrifice sleep. Martha's morning starts at 6:30 am with breakfast for her pets, including a donkey. Then she spends some time with the book and only then gets involved in the work process.
Unlike Martha, one of the most famous women in the world builds "friendships" with sleep. To fully relax and unwind, Oprah takes a bath a few hours before going to bed. The presenter says that for her this is a daily and obligatory ritual: “I'm just a 'bathing' fanatic. My bath is a storehouse of foam, salt, bombs and oils."
Jennifer Lopez is sure: the secret of perfect appearance is a normal, healthy sleep. She considers this to be the best prevention of age-related changes. On weekends, Jennifer can get out of bed closer to noon after sleeping 12 hours.
Before bed, J.Lo focuses on dishes rich in tryptophan, takes a bath with lavender oil and drinks chamomile tea.
The best "sleeping pills" Beyoncé considers a glass of milk. The star explains her love for this drink with nostalgia for childhood. For little Beyonce, milk acted as a sedative. Now nothing has changed: it "lulls her".
Mariah is a great sleeper. The standard eight hours is not enough for her - it takes about ten to feel good. The secret of her "good night" and "good morning" is a moisturizer. Mariah says: the air in the bedroom should be like in a steam room.
"Bridget Jones" admits that she sleeps very little - the schedule does not allow you to bask in bed for a long time. Rene decided to take not quantity, but quality. Zellweger sets the air conditioner in the bedroom at 18-21 degrees, and at the head of the bed is a vase of ice. The star says that such "extreme" conditions allow you to preserve youthful skin and, attention, to lose weight: "The body spends much more energy to keep warm - you sleep, and the waist becomes smaller."
The American top model is a fan of oriental practices. She has been doing yoga for over 10 years and cannot imagine her life without it. Before bed, Christie does a relaxation exercise.
Want to repeat? Lie on your back with a cushion under your neck. Close your eyes, relax. Place your hands on your abdomen with palms on top of each other. Press lightly. Then move to the solar plexus area and press again. The next area is the neck. When moving to a new place, change your palms in places. In total, you need to make about ten transitions, accompanied by deep breaths.
J.K. Rowling decided to entrust her sleep with high technology. She uses a special application that contains the best relaxing sounds. Before going to bed he listens to birds singing, the sound of the surf and rain for about half an hour. In an interview, Joanne admitted that before she downloaded the application, she suffered from nightmares - the program helped to cope with this problem.
Jennifer Aniston suffered from insomnia. She even had to go to a doctor - for an independent solution, the task turned out to be unbearable. At least an hour before bedtime, she refuses everything that emits blue light that destroys melatonin - the sleep hormone: TV, computer, phone. In addition, Jennifer does several yoga asanas and takes a warm shower.
Keith's secret to healthy sleep is a soothing herbal tea. It contains chamomile, lavender, valerian, kava kava and other plants. The actress admits that tea helps to relax, clear the head of "garbage" and quickly fall asleep.
On Instagram, almost every top model has a photo in a sleep mask. Joan Smalls is no exception. The Puerto Rican model often takes this accessory on the plane, on vacation and on business trips. Masks improve the quality of sleep - there is no exposure to light on the retina, and the concentration of melatonin remains high enough.
