An extra hour in bed always makes me happy, but for many getting a good night’s sleep is difficult, never mind adding an extra hour in.So when the clocks go back this weekend to mark the end of BST, you might need a little help in relaxing.
There are no real ‘cures’ for insomnia, certainly not in beauty products, but there are some lovely ranges out there to help you relax and get into the right state of mind to sleep.
Kiss the Moon is one that I’ve come across this week, and it’s worth a look. Based in the English countryside, Kiss the Moon create beauty and wellness products that tap into the power of nature’s most soothing ingredients to help you to sleep beautifully and wake up looking gorgeous.
Founded by Jo Foster, the range was born from the need to get her own sleep back on track and counter the effects of a life full of deadlines and jet lag inducing travel.
Good sleep is fundamental to a successful beauty regime because it is while we sleep that the most active cell renewal happens. That’s why poor sleep so often results in poor skin. Our products not only help you get to sleep but also give your skin the nourishment it needs overnight as it repairs and regenerates – Jo Foster, Founder, Kiss the Moon.
Available in four aromatherapy blends, Kiss the Moon is 100% natural and proudly made in the UK without any parabens, harsh chemicals, artificial perfumes or cruelty to animals.
There are lots of brilliant products in the range to choose from, all in lovely black packaging.
The GLOW Aromatherapy Candle (£38) is an uplifting 100% natural soy wax candle with essential oils of warm citrus orange and gentle floral geranium to brighten the mood at bedtime. It has 50+ hours burn time. Just make sure you blow it out before you sleep.
DREAM After Dark Bath Oil (£38) contains soothing lavender and bergamot, blended with nourishing coconut and jojoba. It’s a bath and massage oil, great for moisturising and relaxing.
LOVE Night Cream for Hands (£28) is an overnight anti-ageing hand cream with essential oils of rose and frankincense to help you relax while shea butter and rosehip moisturises and reduces the appearance of wrinkles as you sleep. Apply before bed, and take in the delicious scent.
DREAM Bedtime Bath Salts (£20) will help you soak away the day, thanks to calming lavender and bergamot oils, which are blended with detoxifying magnesium and Dead Sea salts to ease the body and mind before bed.
CALM After Dark Sleep Balm (£16) is an aromatherapy balm blended with jasmine and sandalwood to help slow down a busy mind and give you a peaceful and restful sleep. Apply to pulse points whenever you need it.
GLOW After Dark Face Oil (£48) is perfect for tired skin. It contains rosehip, wheatgerm and white tea to hydrate and repair overnight, while orange and geranium calm your mind and lift your spirit.
