The clocks go forward tonight for us UK-based gals! Apologies if you’re all set to change your clocks this evening, but as I always forget and have to be reminded by my parents Sunday mid-morning, I thought there might be at least a few of you out there that might appreciate the reminder!
While I can’t wait for the longer days, brighter evenings (and fingers crossed for some better weather), I can’t say I’m looking forward to having one whole hour of my precious sleep time taken away from me. My beauty sleep is important to me and every minute is valuable when you’ve got three children, right? So this year I’m going to make sure I make the most of every single minute of shut-eye.
Rather than toss and turn for an hour before I actually fall asleep, I’m be using my this works sleep plus+ pillow spray to lull me into relaxation and a stress free sleep. I’m not usually one for a lavender scent, but this has been blended so beautifully that it does the trick. It’s not super strong when you spray it on to your bedlinen, but the clever formulation means that the gentle lavender scent is released as you toss and turn; it last for ages too, so I only have to spray this once every third night and I can still smell it for a couple of nights after. (Heads up: this always comes with me on holiday to ensure I get a good night’s sleep too! Leave a comment below to let me know if you’d like a post on what I pack for travel).
I’m not the deepest of sleepers; just the smallest of noises or a glimmer of light entering my room and I’ll wake up and boom! My mind starts working at nineteen to the dozen and I’ve no chance of falling back to sleep again. I have black out blinds and curtains in my bedroom, but it’s just not enough. So I’ll make sure to be wearing my Holistic Silk Eye Cover with Lavender (which I wrote about with much love here) to keep me in the dark until it’s really time to wake up.
And finally, I’ll trick my skin into thinking it’s had a full night of sleep, I’ll be using the new NUXE Nuxellence Detox to wake up looking rested and relaxed. Its modern blend of antioxidants, sugars and a silk tree extract promote the skin’s nighttime cell renewal and detoxification process, allowing the skin cells to perform at their best. I wake up with super smooth luminescent skin that literally radiates an 8-hour sleep (although I can’t remember when I last managed that in reality!) It’s either worn on its own, or for a real nighttime treat, I like to wear it under my night cream for a super-power boost to the skin.
Sunday is going to look good!
