Because you deserve deep, regenerative rest, we’ve created a ‘Sleep’ routine with experts at the European Sleep Centre, that is scientifically proven to improve sleep. Discover how you can improve your sleep here.
Yes, Beauty Sleep isn’t a myth and we have our skin to thank for it. Part of our circadian rhythm which is the 24-hour sleep-wake cycle of our bodies includes our skin doing regenerative work. While we sleep, our skin rebuilds collagen.
Adults need at least seven hours of sleep and teenagers need at least 9 hours of sleep for our bodies to do all the work we need to get beauty sleep.
Discover how to better your circadian rhythm with tips for every part of your sleep journey
The European Sleep Centre advices avoiding caffeine, sugar and alcohol to improve sleep. They affect your quality of sleep. Even if we sleep for eight hours, alcohol impairs the quality of our sleep and may cause us to wake up early. Alcohol is also a diuretic, which means that we lose fluid through sweat and become dehydrated, causing our skin to lose its radiance.
The ESC recommended that electronics be removed from the bedtime routine. 'Screen light exposure interrupts the circadian clock by strongly stimulating particular blue-sensitive cells in the retina,' they claim. The blue light from our displays tricks our brain into thinking it's daytime. There is no melatonin production, and so no sleeping.
A cheerful sleeper has a comfortable bed. Why not try silk pillowcases for better sleep? Their superior suppleness can keep your skin hydrated longer than drier cotton counterparts. Our Sleep Calming Pillow Mist has a floral scent and its fragrant perfume will help to create a tranquil environment to help you get the rest you deserve.
Don’t let your circadian rhythms get too funky. These biorhythms control when we feel sleepy and alert. Pay attention to your waking and sleeping patterns and commit to going to bed and waking up at similar times each day. Adjust when you sleep at night to make sure you wake up around the same time each morning.
Calm yourself with a relaxing bath or shower. Warm water may help our body reach the ideal sleep temperature. Try our bath milks and bath foam to excite your senses.
Use essential oils to gently massage tension points. Self-loving touch raises our oxytocin and helps relax our muscles.
Use our Calming pillow mist to ensure that all your senses are catered for. Do a light spritz on your bed or scent the room using an oil diffuser.
