I thought I would share some of the skincare I have been using lately which helps me to unwind and relax before I head to bed.
As many of you know I am obsessed with anything that smells like a spa, so products which help stimulate that relaxing spa vibe are a winner for me and are guaranteed to help me nod off.
First up is the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish in the lavender scent. It is light weight, creamy and smells divine. It is a beautiful cleanser to use before bedtime to help the start of the unwinding process.
For the rest of my body I have been enjoying the Champneys Good as New Body Butter. It is ultra thick and luxurious. It does take a while to sink in though so always best to do it a little while before you try get your pyjama bottoms on. The scent is spa like and smothering it on is super calming.
I am prone to dry lips so I always ensure I have my latest lip salve favourite next to my bed. At present it is the L’Occitane Ultra Rich Lip Balm. The texture is air soft and the smell reminds me of baby products, something I guess not everyone would like but I find it comforting.
Finally is the L’Occitane pillow spray which I use on my silk pillow case (still a huge fan of the silk pillowcase, here is my blog post about it) .
It helps to slow down and relax my breathing as I breath it in before closing my eyes to drift off.
All of these combined work their magic in ensuring I drift right off. What products do you use to unwind?
