World Sleep Day – Our Favourite Products

World Sleep Day 2019

Little impacts on how you look and feel as much as sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the recommended amount of sleep that the average adult needs is 7-9 hours each day.

For many, busy lives prevent us establishing a bedtime routine which could help us fall asleep quicker, and stay asleep for longer. Then, of course, there’s the other ‘sleep stealers’ such as caffeine, alcohol and the blue lights of gadgets and TVs, if consumed too close to bedtime. For others, the trickiest part is trying to actually nod off once their head hits the pillow.

With sleep being a significant contributor to overall well being, and in celebration of World Sleep Day,  we’ve selected five of our favourite products that’ll help you to relax, de-stress and have you counting sheep in no time.

For more inspiration to help you achieve the perfect night’s sleep, visit our World Sleep Day page.

Sweet dreams!

Neom Exclusive: Nicola Elliott Q&A

Celebrating International Women’s Day: An Exclusive Interview With Neom Founder Nicola Elliot

In this exclusive interview, Neom Organics founder Nicola Elliott reveals what inspired her to walk away from a hectic life as a fashion editor and start her own award-winning wellbeing business…

After noticing her wellbeing had taken a dive for the worst, former Glamour Magazine Editor Nicola Elliott gave it all up to train as an aromatherapist and nutritionist. She founded Neom Organics in 2005, running it from her two-bedroom Islington flat.  Twelve years later, Neom is one of the most recognisable and best-selling wellness brands in the UK.

We caught up with Nicola to see what inspired her to start her own business and how she balances family and work life…

Nicola elliott interview allbeauty blogWhat inspired you to start NEOM?

I suffered from anxiety and started creating 100% natural blends to help. They worked! I then followed on with a sleep blend for my sister who was suffering with insomnia, then my husband to boost his energy… when he left the house with 32 bottles for the football team I thought then we may be on to something!

Who are the women that inspire you?

There’s so many… my Mum, Sister, best friends, and our customers!

How do you juggle family and work life?

I have a great husband, Dave, who I tag team with. I couldn’t do it solo!  We do 50/50 around the home and with the kids.

Poor sleep, stress, low energy and mood swings. This kick-started my own wellbeing journey”

What advice do you have for starting a business?

See if you get traction whilst working your day job first… find a partner with different skills to you and prepare for it to take longer than you think. Hire the best people you can afford as soon as you can. Then… have fun!

What are your top wellbeing tips?

Create your own wellbeing toolkit – what works for one person won’t work for the next! It’s about finding those few things that you enjoy otherwise it becomes a chore, so whether that’s getting 5 minutes of fresh air at lunch time, meeting with friends, a yoga class once a week or a run; there really are small steps that we can take to feel our best every day. I always see time for myself as necessity not a luxury and it’s a work in progress, but I try not to sweat the small stuff!

You can’t look good if you don’t feel good! – Nicola Elliott, Neom founder

You might be looking forward to an extra hour in bed this weekend thanks to the clocks going back, but here’s three ways to recharge your beauty routine that are better than sleep – yes, really! 

The clocks go back this Sunday (28th October 2018) but rather than spending an extra hour asleep, we’ll be bounding out of bed thanks to Neom!

For your chance to win a selection of Scent To Boost Your Energy goodies worth £85, simply enter the competition below and tell us how you’ll be spending your extra hour! Here’s our ideal way to start the day:

1. Relax in the bath

How many of us make time for a bath nowadays? Especially in the morning?! Though delightfully relaxing, baths don’t have to be before bed. Rather than spending an extra hour lounging in bed, try waking up slowly with the Neom Organics Energy Burst Bath & Shower Drops. Catch up on social media, watch an episode of your favourite show, tune into the morning news or finally start reading that book you’ve been meaning to read- you’ll be ready for the day in no time!

2. Pop a face mask on

Everyone loves a face mask, but the Sleep Power Recharge Mask from thisworks is an allbeauty favourite! Designed to recharge and re-energise skin, this bright blue mask helps clear skin and leaves it feeling softer and looking more refreshed. Apply an even layer all over your face and leave for at least 30 minutes.

3. Exfoliate

Probably the most skipped part of anyshower routine, exfoliating is super important to prevent dead skin build-up and unclog pores. It’s also a great way to add a little zing in your step in the morning! We love the Grumpy Cow Uplifting Shower Scrub from Cowshed. Made from bamboo scrub particles and with energising ginseng extracts, massge into wet skin to boost circulation and nourish skin.
