We all know sleep is essential for our health and wellbeing, so is it any wonder that sleep care is being coined the new selfcare?  

Having a healthy, consistent routine for sleep is as important as one for selfcare. Doing things each night before bed so our body knows the cues for sleep can help have a better, deeper, quality of sleep. Whether that’s having a warm relaxing bath, a milky caffeine-free drink, reading, and brushing teeth/taking off make-up[i]  your evening regime could bring better sleep, and that in turn hopefully brings a brighter morning.

The NHS reports that one in three of us suffer from poor sleep. Regular poor quality sleep can not only increase stress levels, lower your mood and exacerbate negative emotions, but it can also put you at risk of serious medical conditions including heart disease and diabetes. Thankfully, British skincare and wellness brand, Tea & Tonic, have turned their hand to helping us all get a better night’s sleep.

Tea & Tonic provides simple yet effective products that combat stress and support a busy, active lifestyle, enabling us to look and feel our brightest self each and every day.  The brand is centred on the use of adaptogens, which are hailed as ‘super herbs’ for their ability to hack into the central nervous system and regulate our stress hormones (these are ultimately the culprit of many ailments bringing us down).  Adaptogens have the ability to help improve sleep, balance skin, aid digestion, increase energy, support immunity, lengthen stamina and maintain cognitive processing.
