Preparing For A Good Nights Sleep

I used to struggle quite a lot with falling asleep, and I still have the odd occasion where I literally cannot fall asleep. I thought I'd share a few things I like to do before bed to help myself drift off a bit easier, and if not, it at least makes me feel more relaxed!

I recently picked up the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion, and I can safely say its the best body lotion I've ever tried. This stuff smells heavenly, and is so perfect to apply once you've hopped out of the shower or bath. Its lavender scented, so as you can imagine, its perfect for helping you to fall asleep. I've heard a few people say that this has helped with their insomnia, but I don't think its proven, so don't hold me to that one haha. Staying on the lines of lotions, having a good skincare routine really helps me with feeling relaxed. I've been loving the Botanics 100% Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz*. I think its the rosewater infused in it that makes it so relaxing to spritz over the face. Obviously, doing a face mask always works wonders too!

Alongside the skincare, switching off before bed can be really helpful. Whether thats reading a book, I'm currently reading Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland, or maybe reading a magazine. I've really been enjoying Bedboat, which is a lifestyle/beauty/photography magazine which is definitely my cup of tea. 

Do you have anything that helps you prepare for a good nights sleep?

  1. Ahh I've heard all about Sleepy and I really need to try it. I'm a terrible sleeper so have tried everything in the book, one of the things that helps me drift off is an app called 'Rain, Rain' it basically plays gentle sounds of rain which makes me feel really cosy and safe and eases my anxiety.

  13. I sometimes struggle with falling asleep and I do really find that reading a book helps massively, I just never seem to do it until I'm on holiday! The Botanics facial spritz sounds lovely - I have the Mario Badescu spray with Aloe and Cucumber and I love spritzing this every morning and evening, it's super refreshing :) xo
