Too Sad To Sleep: How To Cope With Insomnia While Grieving a Loss

Grief can cause sleep disruptions—and sleep loss can make grieving that much more taxing.

Confession: I have a thing for lip products. My vanity is littered with dozens of balms, glosses, and sticks, each of which is organized into its own dedicated spaces. I group them into one of three categories—lip balms that are great for combatting dryness and chapping (but otherwise kind of boring), sticks and glosses in subtle shades for everyday wear, and highly pigmented products that give a “wow” pop of color and shine when the occasion calls for it—as relevant as any accessory for a night out.

But I’m having trouble figuring out where to stash my new favorite—a multi-tasking wonder product that delivers all of the above in one beautiful tube. Cosmedix Lumi Crystal ($39) is a heavy-duty hydrator combining deeply moisturizing ingredients and hero anti-agers with a prismatic wash of color that’s easily dialed up or down depending on how you apply it.
