The Best Hidden beauty secret, that doesn't cost a thing? Want to know what I'm talking about? SLEEP. That's right, the big "40 winks", a nap, doze, siesta, rest, whatever you wanna call it, trust me it WORKS. I've done my research and have some facts for you, but also I've got some products that can help you get a better nights sleep. Lemme explain a lil' more...
I'm not a scientist (Google is my bestie) and I know this can't work for everyone (I'm looking at you, Mum's with newborn baby's/toddlers and nightshift workers) but where possible, getting the right amount of sleep can really effect you and your skin a lot more than you probably realise. After doing my nerdy research I found SO many pointers as to why sleep is SO important for your skin, such as these 3:
1. Not Enough Sleep Accelerates the Aging process: During deep sleep, the rise in growth hormones allows damaged cells to become repaired. Without the deeper phases of sleep, this won't occur, allowing daily small breakdowns to accumulate instead of being reversed overnight. This results in more noticeable signs of aging.
2. A lack of sleep causes eye bags/circles/wrinkles: While you're sleeping, the body's hydration rebalances. Skin is able to recover moisture, while excess water in general in the body is processed for removal. Not getting enough sleep results in poor water balance, leading to puffy bags under your eyes and under-eye circles, as well as dryness and more visible wrinkles.
3. Not Enough Sleep Detracts from your Skin's Natural Beauty: Increased inflammatory cells in the body lead to an increase in the breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, the molecules that give the skin its glow, bounce, and translucency.

So, now what?
So, now I have made you aware of WHY you need so much sleep! Let me introduce you to HOW you can get better sleep. This Works Deep sleep products have been in my life for a number of years now, especially the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray with has been my one & only for a while now. With-out sounding dramatic, I can't live with out it. Since I LOVE IT SO MUCH - This Work's kindly sent me over some other products from the range for me to test out, Here is a breakdown of what I got and why YOU NEED THEM! xo
As a big candle lover, I can say honestly that my main use for candles is to create a relaxed, beautifully scented setting that instantly relieves the stresses of the day and allows you to be in your own little fragranced bubble. This it exactly what the Deep Sleep Heavenly candle offers for you. Combining essential oils such as lavender and camomile the scent instantly relaxes you and is perfect for use in the evening/before bed. Alongside burning it in the bedroom to create a relaxed atmosphere, I also like to use it in the bathroom whilst having a bath - there is nothing that says relaxation more than this. The sleek packaging is subtle yet beautiful and would make the perfect gift this Christmas for a number of people. Get yours HERE £25.00
I quite litterally don't even know where to begin with this product. I am always very sceptical about products that make big claims however this is one that I can honestly hand on heart say has worked SO well for me. I simply cannot recommend it enough. I noticed a significant difference in not only the time it takes me to go to sleep when using it (before I would spend so long tossing turning/feeling restless) and I also feel so much more fresh/awake in the mornings as I feel I have had a better quality of sleep. I simply spray a few pumps of it onto my pillow before I get in bed. The bottle lasts for a long time as a little go's a long way and I use this product every single night. I can't imagine life without it now! Plus they do little travel sized ones which are perfect for when you're travelling. Get Yours Here £25.00
I would recommend using this alongside the Deep Sleep Heavenly candle in the bath. Light the candle to create a relaxed atmosphere then add a few drops of this oil to your toasty bath so you can soak in the fragrance allowing your body and mind to unwind at the same time. Give yourself some me-time and leave the bath feeling relaxed, stress-free and utterly ready for bed! I like that the oil also leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft. Get yours HERE £25.00
Not a bath person? Don't have time? This is the perfect product for you, and This Works have you covered. This fast fix shower gel can be used in minutes yet still leaves you with the relaxing feeling of the rest of the products. It leaves your skin smelling so beautiful and feeling amazing with the added coconut oil. The steam from the shower also turns into a beautiful fragrance when using this, meaning you are almost having an at home spa like calming steam room experience. Get yours HERE £15.00
Why not take advantage of the wonderful sleep you are going to get after using the This Works products and give your skin a little treat to? I have always been told to start young with anti-wrinkle treatments, because why not get a head start? This super rich luxurious cream contains an amazing superblend of ingredients such as anti-ageing retinol to boost collagen production, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump the skin and enriching Shea butter, Jojoba and evening primrose oil. It means you wake up to plumper, firming and all round glowy skin! I can't wait to continue using it and carry on seeing the wonderful effects. Get Yours HERE £46.00
