REST & RESTORE
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.
