Land of nod

Getting a quality forty winks can be an elusive business at times. Try this tick-list of our current beauty sleep favourites for a luxurious, restorative slumber

These PJs are so beautiful they could be worn with ease as eveningwear matched with heels and a blazer. The style is based on Coco Chanel’s love of wearing her partner’s shirts. Slipping into this incredibly soft set is heavenly, while the natural thermoregulator of the material keeps you cool and warm as needed. ‘Coco’ silk pyjamas, £420, Olivia Von Halle

A popular aromatherapy scent and a natural sleep aid, a spot of lavender oil can soothe you off into dream land. Use this scent on your pillow every night to relax you before bedtime. Neom Organics pillow spray, £20, Grace & Favours, Auchterarder

This limited edition eye mask will help you achieve a deeper, more restorative sleep. Made with 100% cotton velvet, it comes with two comfortable tie ribbons and totally blocks out the light. It contains natural, dried lavender, with an aroma that is perfect for relieving stress, migraines and insomnia. Japanese Jade’ eye mask, £55, Holistic Silk

Aside from looking and feeling luxurious, linen is one of the most breathable duvet cover options. This 100% linen bedding set, a collaboration with interior stylist Sophie Robinson, is woven from absorbent, chunkier fibres that keep you cool when the temperature rises and cosy in the winter. Dazzling blue linen set, £18 – £175, Secret Linen Store

Magnesium plays a significant role in supporting a deep sleep by upping levels of GABA – a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep. A long, hot soak before bed is a great way to relax. Pursoma bath soak, £30, Net-A-Porter

Say goodbye to separate duvets or throwing the covers off through overheating in the middle of the night. Nanu’s new ‘hot & not’ duvet is a revelation for couples who sleep better at different temperatures. You can customise each seamless half of the duvet for dual warmth functionality, whether you like to be toasty or cooler between the sheets. Hot & not duvet, from £50, Nanu Sleep
