A good night's sleep is crucial for your physical and mental wellbeing but achieving those 6-8 hours is easier said than done. Too much screen time, caffeine and stress can be the culprit of your late night tossing and turning which can leave you feeling tired and irritated the next morning. With everything going on in the world it can be hard to switch off, so in honour of Sleep Week, we’ve sourced the best products to add to your bedtime routine for your best sleep ever.
Sometimes we need a little help from nature to help us wind down after a busy day. Thanks to the team at The Beauty Chef, they've developed a sleep support powder with lemon balm and passionflower, to support your body’s natural antioxidant process during the sleep cycle. Take with warm milk or water before bed for a relaxing night of rest.
Not just a luxury edition to your bedding, a silk pillowcase has many beauty and sleep benefits. While you’re fast asleep, the mulberry silk fibres work to keep your skin hydrated and your hair frizz-free so you can wake up feeling and looking refreshed. Shhh Silk have a range of colours and designs to suit your lifestyle.
If you shower in the morning but have trouble getting to sleep at night, it may be time to switch up your routine. Soaking in a warm bath before bed will change your body’s core temperature, produce melatonin and prepare you for sleep. A great addition to this practice is Deep Sleep Bath Salts, with lavender and chamomile to relieve tension, soothe muscles and restore a sense of balance.
Having a calming cup of tea before bed is common, however most teas have a level of caffeine which can disrupt your sleep. A healthier alternative is the WelleCo Sleep WELLE tea, with a soothing and fruity taste to calm the body and mind. Best enjoyed while reading a book or unwinding with your favourite TV show.
Aromatherapy has long been used to aid sleep with blends of natural herbs and botanicals. This pillow mist from L'Occitane is sure to transform you to the hills of Provence, France with notes of lavender, sweet orange and bergamot. Spray around your room before bed or directly onto your pillow to release a cloud of calming fragrance.
