Make Time Changes Easier with Grace and Gua Sha

Most fundamentally, good sleep and shifting a sleep schedule is all about re-balancing hormones. Whether you are changing timezones or seasons, your skincare routines with baby (or yourself!) can help make sleep better, and life a little easier. There are 3 key ways that skincare can help you fall back without missing a beat: helpful ingredients, relaxing touch, anchoring routines.
Ingredient benefits:
When it comes to balancing your hormones, what’s excluded from the ingredient list in your skincare products is just as important as what is included. 
The smell of fresh rose oil is proven to reduce stress hormones in the body by affecting our nervous system positively.
BEB Organic products are free of those endocrine disrupting chemicals that throw off our body’s hormone balance, like synthetic fragrances, dioxins, parabens and BPAs.
The benefits of massage... a powerful type of touch:
Gua sha massage triggers the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is calming and also causes an increase in melatonin and thus helps reset our circadian rhythms. Use gua sha massage after bathtime and before bedtime to help shift your and your baby’s sleep rhythm.
Better routines make for better sleep:
An important part of sleep routines is building in time to wind down each day, and a gua sha massage is the perfect tool to help both you and baby wind-down. Routines serve as an anchor of predictability helping us to better cope with the things we can’t control or predict. The more anchors we have, the more in-control we feel. That reduces stress and the hormone swings that come with it, making it easier to adjust to a new timezone or seasonal time change.
More tips for managing a time change: 
Make sure to get really great exercise during the day before time change and be sure to eat dinner an hour earlier than normal. Diet and exercise both play a big role in hormonal balance. Also shoot for a stress-free day because stress immediately increases hormone fluctuations, making it harder to re-balance hormones when you’re trying to get into a new sleep rhythm.
