This is not meant to happen to me. New mums, yes. Worry worts, yes. But me, no. Why can’t I sleep? I feel like stomping my feet and saying it’s just not fair. That is what you’ve reduced me to Mr Hypnos.
Any self-respecting beauty nut knows that sleep is worth its weight in gold, as Dr Gabrielle Caswell of the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) explains: “While we sleep, the body uses energy that we would normally use during the day to repair and grow its tissues.” But sadly I just can’t seem to sleep.
However, I refuse to admit defeat, I’m planning on taking back my eight hours with the help of these beauties:
Nature’s Own Sleep-Ezy – the ingredients in Sleep-Ezy have been carefully selected for their calming effects. Interesting fact: did you know that hops were traditionally used in Western herbal medicine for their natural sedative action?
Endota Spa Lavender Me Down To Sleep Balm – this organic balm for your pulse points contains lavender, which soothes insomnia, ginger, which is cosy and warming, bergamot, which inspires relaxation and happiness, and marjoram, which calms anxiety and relaxes muscles.
Johnson’s Dreamy Skin Body Wash – this body wash features aromasoothe, a blend of moonflower and lavender, to calm and relax the senses for a better night’s sleep.
