They don’t call it beauty sleep with­out rea­son and after a hec­tic fes­tive sea­son, util­is­ing the wee small hours to re­store your­self is the best idea you’ll have all year.

Our first op­tion is a glo­ri­ous bath, a great ex­cuse to ac­quaint your­self with Aro­mather­apy As­so­ciates’ mood-chang­ing oils. Try nine of its sig­na­ture blends over Jan­uary and treat your­self to a full-size ver­sion of your favourite for Fe­bru­ary.

Next sweep Elemis’s deeply per­fumed roller­ball oil on to your pulse points, com­posed of 13 pure es­sen­tial oils in­clud­ing pal­marosa. Fi­nally spritz REN’s & Now to Sleep pil­low spray, which turns to the calm­ing aro­mas of laven­der, hops and frank­in­cense. If that lot doesn’t send you off noth­ing will.

If look­ing peely wally is your main con­cern, Glas­gow-based Tan Luxe’s sleep oil is packed with kendi, rasp­berry, jo­joba, marula and apri­cot oils, which help re­ju­ve­nate the look and feel of skin. The long-term hero of the night, though, is Es­tee Lauder’s Ad­vanced Night Re­pair. Its Eye Con­cen­trate Ma­trix is per­fect for fresh peep­ers, ban­ish­ing un­der­eye puffi­ness and dark cir­cles.
