I’m all for sleep rituals…small, relaxing things you can do at night-time to remind your body and mind it’s time to wind-down and prepare for a perfect night of peaceful shut-eye. (See my new book 222 Ways to Trick Yourself to Sleep for a whole chapter of ‘Before Bed Wind-Down Tricks that really work).
And using a night-cream that’s calming and soothing can be a perfect part of anyone’s sleep ritual. Used nightly, the scent of the cream will help you associate it with tranquility.
Temple Spa’s Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream is the perfect pre-sleep concoction. Packed with plenty of skin-friendly vitamins plus complexion boosters hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil and glycerin, what makes it a superior sleep-aid is the fact it’s also infused with essential oils of lavender and frankincense plus soothing hops.
It’s light, melty, easily absorbed and smells of ‘lying in a spa’. Breathe in the scent from your hands after applying to fill yourself with a sense of ‘ahhhh’.
