How To Get The Perfect Night's Sleep

We all know the importance of a good night's sleep - it's an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, and helps you be at your best throughout the day. However, our busy schedules and hectic lifestyles can sometimes get in the way and stop us from dozing off. So what better excuse to indulge in a little relaxation?

In celebration of Sleep Awareness Week, 11th – 17th March, and to help you switch off, unwind and prepare for the perfect slumber - we’ve pulled together a selection of luxurious treats, pampering products and indulgent bedtime essentials to ensure you get the rest that you need, and deserve!

EVENING ROUTINE

Establishing a bedtime routine is a vital part of getting a good night’s sleep. Winding down at the end of the day with a hot bath is good for the mind and good for the body, made all the more relaxing and luxurious with Jo Malone London bath oil or Farmers’ Salt Soak. Scent is our most powerful sense and can deeply affect our sleep. Lighting a candle, such as Neom’s Luxury Destress candle, or spritzing your pillow with sprays from This Works or Ren will calm the mind and help you drift off into a serene slumber.

Skincare Saviours

There are many reasons why it is called ‘Beauty Sleep’. During the day, your skin works hard to protect itself, but at night, your skin switches to ‘recovery mode’, a time of intense repair and regeneration when it's more receptive to active ingredients. This makes it the perfect time to replenish your skin with indulgent skincare such as Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask, Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon and La Mer’s Eye Concentrate. You’ll wake up looking as revitalised as you feel.

Sleep in Style

There’s no reason why what you wear to bed shouldn’t be as stylish as the rest of your wardrobe. When it comes to sleeping well, your pyjamas need to be cosy, breathable and loose-fitting like these cute and comfortable sets from DKNY and Cyberjammies. Complete your night-time style with Bedroom Athletics Gwen faux fur slippers, which are as snug as they are chic.

A Better Bed

There's no better feeling than climbing into bed at the end of the day - especially when that bed has the perfect mattress, divine duvets and plump pillows. The Eve mattress is one of most comfortable memory foam mattresses in the world, with a unique layering system that ensures a peaceful sleep. Plus, with pillows from the Fine Bedding Company and a duvet from Nimbus, you’ll feel like you’re sleeping on Cloud Nine, while bedding from premium brands including Calvin Klein, DKNY and Harlequin  guarantees a sleep that is as stylish as it is sound.
