We’ve been doing some research into sleep tips – how to get more sleep, as well as how to make it work better for you. Sleep is nature’s way of resetting and restoring our system: we can’t live without it. And the good news is that you can help the process along with natural organically-certified body care products that boost your body’s responses.
Replenish and renew
During sleep your cells rebuild and repair themselves and your skin renews itself – so good-quality sleep is essential to keep you and your skin fresh and healthy. This night-time magic also enhances your skin’s responsiveness to nutrients, which is why enriching organic night creams are work so well. Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream is a soothing organic moisturiser that uses cocoa and shea butters to nourish and rehydrate your skin and boost the natural benefits of beauty sleep. Relax, drift off – and wake to a brighter, more radiant you.
Lavender has long been a top sleep tip to promote a good night’s rest – traditionally lavender flowers were tucked into pillows and apothecaries prescribed lavender oil to ease ‘griefs and pains of the head and brain’. More recently, research has indicated that the smell of lavender lowers the activity of the nervous system, easing anxiety and leaving you feeling more relaxed. Our organic skincare range uses lavender not only in the Overnight Sensation Night Cream but also in our Lavender Meadow Hand & Nail Cream. Apply both before bedtime to soothe your senses with a delicate and calming aroma. It makes sleep as easy as breathing.
Soak or shower
Your temperature naturally drops during sleep – so stimulating the process makes you drowsy as well as boosting your chances of night-long rest. Sleeping in a cool room helps. But another top sleep tip is a hot bath or shower – this warms you up so your body experiences a sleep-inducing drop in temperature when you climb out. Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Hand and Body Wash, Hand and Body Lotion and Hand and Nail Cream all maximise the warming experience of a soak or shower by adding the soothing smell of lavender. Relax, enjoy and set your body clock for sleep. Naturally.
You may be getting enough sleep, but are you maximising its benefits? Here are three top sleep tips to make sure the effects of a good night’s rest are visible on your skin.
• Sleep on your back: lying on your stomach can constrict the blood vessels in the face, causing dark circles.
• Plump up your pillows: keeping your head raised can help prevent the fluid accumulation that cause puffy eyes.
• Threads of kindness: use a pillowcase with a high thread count that feels soft against your cheek and avoid fabrics or dyes that might irritate sensitive skin.
