How’s the summer treating you? Although I’ve taken all my summer holidays abroad I have the bug to head off again and I might sneak off in the camper van for a long weekend, which means I will be spending my birthday on the 25th August in a field! I seem to celebrate the dogs birthday more than mine these days, Ted was 3 in July whereas I’ll be 38 years old. At least I will be making the most of the rest of the summer before that naughty autumn sneaks in.
Life can be a bit crazy and busy at times, we go through our ups and downs and roll with the various situations life throws at us. I was chatting to a friend of mine the other day who’s been through a torrid time and he’s just not sleeping because his mind is working over time. I think we’ve all been through rough patches whether is due to ill-health, family, work, relationships or friendships we put our mind and body through the mill.
The key to both thriving and surviving is keeping ourselves healthy, which we know can be tricky in times of stress. Even if all is going well for us we need to keep check on the key pillars of health: hydration, nutrition, exercise & sleep.
My Mum has always said there’s nothing quite like a good nights sleep, and I think she’s right. Our body rejuvenates, repairs, rectifies and restores itself overnight. Sleep is paramount to every living cell in your body especially your skin! Plus getting a great night’s sleep should be the top of everybody’s anti-ageing beauty regime!
I’ve discovered This Works here at QVC, they’re leaders in their field when it comes to naturally effective sleep solutions. They’re a British company who produce natural products that deliver on their promise they also work with British farmers to source their ingredients. Those who have tried their iconic ‘Deep Sleep Pillow Spray‘ are completely obsessed and the customer reviews rave about it.
If you crave a good nights sleep or you’d like to feel more energised in the daytime after a refreshing sleep then you’ll be delighted to hear that This Works have their first Today’s Special Value offer coming up on 22nd August! It will feature a supersize of the iconic Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, a full size of the brand new Deep Sleep Shower Gel, a full size of the No Wrinkle Tired Eyes and even the portable handbag Stress Less Roller Bullet. It’s an amazing collection and will be at a brilliant price for one day only while stocks last.
Key ingredients across the range are natural, such at true lavender to relax us, wild camomile to soothe us and vertivert to calm us. With their research and development also based in the UK they’ve done clinical studies to prove that sleep quality can be improved with certain products.
Start your sleep ritual with the Deep Sleep Shower Gel to get the daily detox underway, it’ll gently cleanse, is sulphate free and will fill the house with relaxing aromas. Then spritz your pillows with Deep Sleep Pillow Spray allow it to dry down whilst applying your No Wrinkle Tired Eyes. Slip into bed and enjoy the calming relaxing tranquil atmosphere you have created. This routine will really calm the mind and help the body to unwind.
