Now more than ever it is important to get plenty of sleep and rest, ideally 8 hours a night. Sleep improves your immune system function and as Covid-19 continues to affect people, we need to do all we can to help ourselves.
We have always known that sleep is a vital part of us functioning daily. In fact the sleep researcher Dr Allan Rechtscheffen once wrote:
‘If sleep does not serve an absolutely vital function, then it is the biggest mistake the evolutionary process ever made.’
Gaia Skincare supports the importance of rest and caring for our bodies as well as our minds. The Gaia Calming Range is a popular choice in our treatments. Last Christmas saw the launch of our Sleep Set which included the Sleep Balm, Sleep Spray and Sleep Body Butter.
The Sleep Body Butter was created from the success of the Gaia Awakening Body Butter. The texture is the same; a deeply hydrating rich body butter which melts into your skin. In the Sleep Body Butter Shea butter is combined with jojoba and sweet almond oils to create a nourishing cream whilst the aroma is inline with the Calming Blend and contains Lavender, Frankincense, Palmarosa and Marjoram.
It is best applied before getting into bed melting a little in the palm of your hand and using sweeping strokes to rub into your body onto clean skin. The process of applying should also be a relaxing act of caring for your skin. An all over body product which absorb into your skin as you sleep.
This is the time when your skin cells naturally repair themselves. The calming blend will soothe your mind supporting a state of relaxation and a goodnight sleep.
It is any wonder it is called ‘our beauty sleep’
