Bobbi Brown Reveals How She Gets High-Quality Beauty Sleep, Nightly
We always treasure any sort of beauty-centered advice we get from the legendary makeup icon Bobbi Brown. She's taught us so much about clean beauty, how to achieve a glowing complexion, and even shared her skin-loving go-to hot chocolate recipe. Now, Brown is back with her latest recommendation: a melatonin-free sleep supplement.
Why Bobbi Brown swears by sleep support+
In a video in her Instagram stories (which you can now watch in full here), Brown shared that all of the chaos in her life has made it difficult for her to fall asleep at night. From launching the impeccable What The Foundation from her clean beauty line Jones Road to moving into a new place, Brown's schedule is packed to the brim.
Nevertheless, she still tries to prioritize rest, but as she explains in the video, exhaustion doesn't necessarily equate to good sleep. Her secret sleep hack? The mbg sleep support+ supplement.
Brown said that she loves this product because it includes PharmaGABA® and magnesium, both of which work wonders to calm her down at the end of the day.* Her favorite part? It's totally melatonin-free. "I realized that [melatonin] was making me groggy the next day. I woke up this morning and I feel much better,"* Brown said. (Read more about the downsides of melatonin here).
This supplement helps you fall asleep faster by prompting muscle relaxation and promoting a steady state of relaxation.* Beyond that, it helps you stay asleep longer (thanks to GABA's clinically shown benefits for sleep quality) and wake up feeling rejuvenated.* All of this together adds up to deep, restorative rest that's essential for those who are constantly on the go.*
It means the world when people who inspire us share their insider secrets, and that doesn't just mean their go-to makeup products. Brown swears by this supplement to get the rest she needs, sans morning grogginess.*
