We all know about the importance of sleep to allow our bodies to rest and our minds to reset. And I hope you have an evening skincare routine before you head off to dreamland. But have you wondered why certain products are specified for PM usage?
I love mornings. And yes, I realise that some of you may not understand this statement at all. I love the feeling of waking up early with a new day ahead, full of promise. Mornings are when I feel most productive. But even I can find it challenging sometimes to leave my comfy bed, which is why I love my morning ritual to help ease me into the day.
It’s nearly a week since it happened, but we can still talk about the royal wedding, right? What a beautiful, touching ceremony held on a spectacularly gorgeous day. And while I could spend many more hours talking about everything that happened on 19 May, my connection to the wedding right now is all about skin. Particularly, how amazing the Duchess of Sussex looked in her decidedly no make-up look.
Recently I wrote about the importance of self-care and since I had so many replies about this topic, I thought I would share what I learned when I found my own personal regime being tested in a way I’m not used to. Because I love a schedule (I’m an upholder afterall) and my life generally allows me to focus on me, carving out time for self-care isn’t usually a problem.
Last time, I wrote about why sleep is so important. However, I know for some, sleep is a difficult task. For those who struggle, I thought I'd share some sleep hygiene info in the hopes that it will help you prioritise this vital body function.
When I meet a client for the first time, I always ask about sleep habits. How many hours do you get per night? Do you fall asleep easily? Do you stay asleep once you’re asleep?
Sleep is one of our most important body functions to keep everything in sync and sadly, it is chronically undervalued in today’s 24/7 world. Research says adults need 7 to 9 hours per night, however about 40 per cent of us get less than this each night.
