After a busy day in the office, you might just want to head to your favourite bar for a few cocktails or retreat to your sanctuary to rest and recharge for the next day. The latter, especially, is something worth investing in. Besides, getting enough quality sleep plays a crucial role in your physical health — and helps you function properly throughout the day.
While most of us can sleep just about anywhere when we are dead tired after a long week, it is no secret that certain environmental factors, such as lighting, noise, temperature, mattress type, and bed sheet material, can affect the quality of your sleep.
It is thus important that you invest in the right products for your bedroom, to ensure you have a good night’s sleep every day. From a S$347 eye mask (which is worth every cent, we promise) to a tea brew packed with many beneficial ingredients to calm your senses before you hit the sack, these products are just what you need for a good night’s sleep. Sweet dreams are truly made of these.

A silk pillow case is a beauty essential everyone needs. These mulberry silk pillowcases from We Are Cultured feature silk fibres that are similar to human hair, causing less damage, split ends or knots to your hair.
The hypoallergenic properties of silk ensure it doesn’t pick up pore-clogging bacteria like cotton does, while its protein fibres help prevent creases on your face — so you can wake up feeling and looking fresh as a daisy.
Our bodies are designed to sleep in the dark. But this is not entirely possible all the time, especially when you’re on a flight or taking a long nap during the weekends.
The Nappa leather sleep mask by Bottega Veneta has been specifically crafted to completely block out light. Made out of the brand’s iconic Intrecciato weave motif with soft cotton flannel lining, it’s just what you need when catching a few extra winks in the afternoon.
Essential oils help with a good night’s sleep. This Works, a brand launched by ex-Vogue beauty guru Kathy Philips, uses 100 percent pure essential oils to aid sleep. The Deep Sleep Pillow Talk duo consists of a cream (for your temples) and pillow spray that is made up of a blend of lavender, vetiver and camomile essential oils to aid relaxation.
There’s nothing more important for a good night’s sleep than the right mattress. The Beautyrest Black Mattress line features luxurious mattresses designed with the latest technology for the ultimate performance.
The mattresses utilise micro diamond-infused memory foam that draws on the conductive properties of diamonds, helping to move heat away from the body for a cool, comfortable rest, as well as advanced pocketed coil that results in increased strength and conformability in each mattress. You can now sleep like a king.
Created by Australian model and businesswoman Elle Macpherson, this calming tea features a blend of powerful ingredients such as lemon balm, passionflower and natural lemon and mango flower, which help with sleep, anxiety and stress. If you have difficulty sleeping, you should give this brew a try.
