How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep can have a huge impact on our health and happiness…not to mention our skin! During deep sleep, the body’s production of the growth hormones responsible for cellular repair and regeneration increases, whilst the production of cortisol (the ‘stress hormone’) decreases. This means getting a restful sleep is crucial for allowing our skin to function well. Here’s how to make sure you get your beauty sleep…

Create a routine – and stick to it

Studies show that repeating the same evening routine helps your body start winding down – even hours before bed. Try and pick things you enjoy doing to make the routine achievable. Perhaps some exercise, a consistent dinner time or a few chapters of a book.

Have a warm bath

Taking a hot bath about 90 minutes before bed can help you fall to sleep more quickly. The hot water helps change your body’s core temperature so that you go to bed with a lower temperature. This drop helps signal to your body that it is time for bed. Treat yourself to a bath oil to aid relaxation; try magnesium or Olverum bath oil drops  with eucalyptus have a real calming affect helping to re-set the mind ready for a peaceful night’s sleep.

 Go on a digital detox

I always recommend having a digital detox before bed. Blue light from screens can suppress the production of melatonin (the sleep hormone) and disrupt our body’s circadian rhythm, making it harder to sleep. I leave my devices downstairs so that I’m not tempted!

 Sleep on silk

It might sound like a luxury, but a silk pillowcase or pyjamas can really influence your night’s rest. Silk drapes delicately over your skin as you sleep and won’t pull on dry or sensitive areas. The smoothness of silk will also help keep your hair and skin smooth and combats sleep lines and wrinkles.

 Make time for self-care

Indulging in a ritual you enjoy will help to soothe your mind before bed. That might be a skincare regime, or a mini massage session with my Overnight Facial and Facialift tool - I always recommend some face massage to really work into any tension that’s accumulated throughout the day, alongside the heavenly essential oils of jasmine, rose and frangipani you will be left feeling relaxed and ready for bed.

Take a deep breath

After you’ve turned your lights out, try some deep breathing to lull yourself into relaxation. Try the 4-7-8 technique – breathe in for 4 seconds, hold the breath for 7 seconds, and exhale for 8 seconds. This method is called ‘the relaxation breath’.

 Sleep well!
