Getting ready for bed has become one my favourite parts of the day. Because of my job, I have absorbed a lot of knowledge about getting the perfect night’s sleep from experts and book extracts (Arianna Huffington’s The Sleep Revolution book is a must-read). But aside from black-out curtains and the right room temperature, getting after-dark beauty right is vital for glowing skin.

While we’re dreaming of new season Gucci at Net-A-Porter, our skin is working over-time to fight age spots, fine lines and thinning skin. How? Sleep increases melatonin (the sleep hormone), which acts like an antioxidant and reduces cortisol (the stress hormone), which is responsible for thinning skin, stretch marks, and discoloration.
