In Bed With…Joanna Vargas

Do you have a bedtime ritual?

I drink hot water with Calcium/Magnesium to help me sleep and read a book. We don’t do electronics in the bedroom! I put in my Supernova Serum while in bed as my final step before I sleep. And my revitalizing eye cream.

What do you wear to bed?

My favorite pajamas are by Rails. So comfy!

What is on your bedside table?

Whatever book I’m reading at the moment. I’m currently rereading Mindy Kaling’s book, Why Not Me?  I love autobiographies of artists I admire. My Supernova Serum is there as well – it’s the last thing I do before bed.

Do you have any recurring dreams?

No. Usually I only dream when I’m stressed so it’s always about work. The last dream I had was one of my employees was fighting a bear and won 🙂

Are you reading or watching anything good at the moment?

I’m watching a bunch of different shows, but my favorite right now is Never Have I Ever. It’s so sweet and beautifully written.

Which scent makes you think of bedtime?

Putting on my Supernova Serum is my nighttime smell.

What are some nighttime items you cannot live without?

Ear plugs—I’m a super light sleeper and our dogs both snore! My Supernova Serum- I use it nightly.

What is your guilty pleasure?!

My daughter is a dancer so we have been known to watch Dance Moms so we can pretend to be in the show. It makes her laugh.

How do you engage in self-care?

I always take good care of my skin, I always drink a healthy shake with vitamins, greens, fruit and plant based protein and I always do a peloton class every single day.

What do you consider the single most important thing for a good night’s sleep?

Shutting down from phones/electronics an hour before bed. Making sure I exercise daily is important too.

Did you have a bedtime routine growing up?

I was always into products so I was into a good body lotion after my shower that was scented. I liked feeling like I smelled good when I got into my bed.

What was your favorite childhood bedtime story?

Madeline was my favorite book.

What is your skincare and beauty routine like? Do you have any holy grail products?

I do my Vitamin C Face Wash, Daily Serum and Rejuvenating Serum every single morning with my Magic Glow Wand for lifting and de-puffing. At night I wash again, apply my Supernova Serum and my eye cream. I do my Exfoliating Mask and a sheet mask twice a week with my daughter. My favorite make right now is the Twilight Face Mask.

How would you choose to spend one hour of free time?

Yoga. I miss hot yoga so much!!!!!

If you could choose a song to wake up to every morning, what would it be?

Red Bull and Hennessy by Jenny Lewis. My daughter and I love her. She has a sweet voice and since she and I wake up first, it has to be something we both like to sing to.
