Many of us fail to recognise that the reason we may not wake up feeling (and definitely not looking) well rested is the lack of attention and care we dedicate to a good night-time routine. Getting ready to switch-off your bedside lamp should be a hugely satisfying, replenishing and totally relaxing process that rewards your body and soul after a long day. We’ve put together a simple 5-step night-time ritual that is sure to guarantee good rest and great skin!
1. BATH SALTS
KISS THE MOON DREAM BEDTIME BATH SALTS
BEAUTIFUL SLEEP: Soak away the day with these mineral rich salts. A natural source of magnesium (the sleepy mineral that helps the body make serotonin and instill a sense of wellbeing). Infused with a generous helping of French Lavender oil – known as nature’s sedative. Freshened with a twist of Bergamot to brighten the spirit and Cedarwood, loved for its calming effect.
BEAUTIFUL SKIN: Notoriously gentle – Lavender is a perfect night time beauty oil, able to balance skin’s own oil production and encourage healthy new cells to form. Roman Chamomile – a godsend for very sensitive or dry skin as it can calm and soothe. Fine grade Epsom & Dead Sea Salts detox the body and soothe the skin. White Tea & Coconut Seed Oil provide an antioxidant boost and leave the skin nourished & moisturised.
WILD SOURCE DETOX BATH SOAK
The ultimate treat to self - bathe in a detoxifying blend of epsom, dead sea and Himalayan pink salts when you’re feeling achy or tired and your body will thank you fo it. Also thrown into the mix is a beautiful blend of rosemary, juniper, lavender and lemon to calm the mind, loosen tense muscles and fill your bathroom with the most beautiful aroma. How to use: - Sprinkle a handful of salts into a warm bath - Wait for salts to dissolve, then jump in. - Relax, rejuvenate and follow with your favourite body cream or oil.

5. The Finishing Touch…
SILK EYE MASK
Using a silk eye mask will help you to relax and switch off from your everyday stresses. The gentle pressure of the silk eye mask pads applied to your face has a calming effect, similar to that of a hug which releases a sleep regulating chemical called serotonin. This will make you feel tired enough to fall asleep.
Silk pillowcases improve skin and hair hydration, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and result in smoother, frizz-free hair every morning.
