If sleeping’s easier said than done, you’re not alone. According to a Sleep Council study, nearly half of the UK population are getting just six hours of sleep a night or less, as opposed to the optimal seven to nine hours most adults actually need. We’ve rounded up 18 beauty products that could help you sleep better.

Experts say good ‘sleep hygiene’ is important. Ie. making your bedroom more conducive to slumber by ensuring it’s dark, quiet, tidy and not too hot or cold. Aim for a temperature between 18-24C. And banish those bad habits like looking at your phone or tablet too near to bedtime.
