Use a Sleep Spray
A sleep spray can be spritzed onto your bedding and pillow to help create a space of relaxation.
Infused with ingredients such as Lavender, Vetivert and Chamomile they help to calm anxious feelings, and let you drift off to sleep easily and without worry.
We love This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, which helps to relieve tension and allow you to drift into a peaceful night sleep. Just perfect.
Have a Warm Bath
A warm bath can help to soothe aching muscles, and leave you feeling relaxed and soothed.
They're great to have after a long day at work, when you're feeling anxious, or if you are suffering from PMS pains. If you are suffering from hormonal aches, try adding in a capful of the ELEMIS Aching Muscle Super Soak - the ingredients work together to heat up your skin and relieve cramps.
If you're just after a relaxing experience, try REN's Atlantic Kelp and Microalgae Anti-Fatigue Oil, which contains Magnesium to soothe muscular pain and revitalise your body, while Atlantic Kelp works to keep the skin super smooth and hydrated.
Use a Temple Balm
Temple balms are great to use when feel tense or have a headache. The creamy texture soothes the skin, while the calming scent helps to clear the airways and relieve sore heads.
The ELEMIS Quiet Mind Temple Balm has been formulated to rub on the earlobes and temples to help calm and soothe, and let you relax.
Light a Candle
Candles are renowned for their abilities to promote a relaxing space and help you switch off and unwind.
They're brilliant to use if you are suffering from headaches and migraines, as the soft lighting is easier on the eyes, while its therapeutic aroma promotes a calm atmosphere.
NEOM's Complete Bliss Candle contains a blend of Rose, Lime and Black Pepper, which helps to relieve headaches and alleviates anxiety and tension. Simply light, pop on your favourite film and breathe.
Use an Eye Mask
Eye masks are really great beauty tools, as they can help promote a more restful night sleep, whilst also having great skincare benefits.
If you wake up in the middle of the night, or struggle to get to sleep in the first place, pop on an eye mask and it will help you to drift off into a peaceful nights sleep.
The Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask with Copper Oxide blocks out all the light to help promote a calming and relaxing atmosphere, while the unique copper fibres encourage healthy cell renewal, so your skin remains soft and youthful.
