I always find I have my most lucid dreams after taking the sleep aid called Melatonin which is perfectly safe to take by the way as it's naturally occurring.

First, you need to keep a dream journal that will help you know your dreams. Then you can try practicing lucid dreaming while still awake...this is called the reality check and the more you keep doing it, the higher your chances of lucid dreaming become.

Here's a bit more of an explanation:
Start a dream journal. Write down any and all details you can, insignificant or not. The idea here is to become familiar with your common dream archetypes aka setting, environment. Why this familiarity is necessary will be explained shortly.
Next, practice daily reality checks. This means throughout your day take a brief pause and ask yourself, "am I dreaming?" You can verify this by checking the time in a phone or clock. Check the time, look away, and check again. If the time remains the same, congratulations, you're awake! Do this often, everyday. The idea here is that after this becomes routine, you'll eventually do the check in a dream and find out that time DOES change. Thus, you conclude you are dreaming! That is base level lucidity.
Now back to the dream journal. Once you recognize what common dreamscapes you have you can start to tell yourself when I see common dream places or characters like the beach, or my brother, etc, those can be triggers to initiate the lucidity.
A lot of this comes down to mindfulness about how your dreams work and reminding yourself of the intention to be lucid.
Happy dreaming!
