Brighten, smooth, strengthen, and tone your skin from the inside out with a hydrolyzed collagen supplement. Collagen, a protein found in animal and fish bones, can help improve skin health and reduce joint pain when taken as a supplement. While most collagen supplements are just that — collagen — Mind Body Green combines their grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine collagen with 8 potent ingredients that also help your body make its own collagen and soothe inflammation. It's one of the most powerful (and delicious) collagen supplements we've tried.

Create a new nightly ritual: wind down with a cup of tea rather than a TV show. We can't get enough of Pukka's chamomile blend, which is ethically sourced and uses 100% organically grown ingredients.

Healist CBD sleep

We've tried a lot of CBD tinctures, and we can say that Healist makes some of the most potent products that actually work. This sleep blend combines organically-armed CBD, active levels of botanical essential oils (lavender, chamomile, lemon balm), and a custom sleep terpene blend that we've found to help you fall asleep quickly and wake up the next day without any grogginess and feeling like you've had a restful night's sleep.

Allswell Stonewashed Bath Robe and Slippers

You don't need to go to a spa to have a spa day—just invest in the most comfy (and good-looking) robe and slipper set. Unlike the robes you throw on at hotels that can feel stiff and scratchy, Allswell's version is super soft thanks to a special stone washing process. We also love how the waffle weave actually helps to sop up water, so you can throw it on after a shower and keep it on while you do your nails.

Theragun Mini

Cramps, knots, and tension, begone!

Melt away your tension at the comfort of your own home (even while you're watching a movie). Buy directly from Theragun, and you'll get a surprise wellness gift with a mini purchase.

If you want an even more functional nighttime beverage, sip on Four Sigmatic's mushroom mix. This adaptogen packet blends organic cacao and reishi—a powerful adaptogenic mushroom that has been used for centuries to help your body manage stress, boost "feel-good" feelings, enhance wellbeing, and improve sleep. It's basically a hot chocolate with stress-busting benefits.

Dual Therapy Weighted Blanket by Brooklyn Bedding

Better health starts with better sleep. And better sleep starts with a weighted blanket, that provides a deep touch pressure support that can support calmer, more soothing sleep. We like that Brooklyn Bedding's blanket has a removable duvet cover and has two sides: one with ultra-cozy warmth and the other side with an advanced cooling fabric.

Ritual Multivitamins

One-third of adults and half of the population aging more than 55 years report taking at least one supplement per day. But because supplements aren't regulated by the FDA, you rarely know if what you're taking is safe or actually contains what it says it does. You don't have to have those fears with Ritual. This vitamin subscription company is reinventing the multivitamin for women, men, and children with only clean, research-backed, and essential nutrients. Each bottle comes with a "Made Traceable" promise, with a visible supply chain so you know what you're putting in your body.

Mind racing at night? Need somewhere to jot down your recipe ideas? Looking for a gratitude notebook? While any pad will do, we've fallen for A Good Company Stone Paper Journal. The world's first climate-positive notebook is made from recycled stone rather than traditional wood pulp paper. (This may sound crazy, but we love how super smoothe it is to write on.)

Starting to see a trend? Sleep is an essential part of maintaining a health body, but 1 in 3 adults don't get enough sleep, according to the CDC. Sometimes, a sleep mask will help block any light that disrupts your deep sleep. While we've found that some sleep masks are thin and let light seep through, Coyuchi organic masks are completely blackout—and incredibly comfortable.
