In case you missed it - in which case you deserve a medal for somehow being the only person on the planet - a lot of us are in lockdown right now.
It’s crappy and yuck and it makes me want to sleep more.
And not just sleep more, but be horizontal in my bedroom in comfy clothes at all times. Anyone else taking their laptop to bed at night to watch a movie because sitting upright on the couch feels like hard work?

So, I thought I’d share with you my favourite night-time products in the beauty and lifestyle space.
Do I use them all every night? No way, I'm way too lazy. But do they each add a little something special to my routine when I do? You betcha.
Since the invention of pimple patches I've actually enjoyed getting a spot here or there, because these things truly work and are so, so satisfying to use. They are a tiny sticker infused with breakout-fighting ingredients that draw out the gunk so your pimple is smaller and flatter come morning.
Peel it off and look at the stuff left on the dot. So gross/fun!
My faves are the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches.
I do this every night by default because silk pillowcases are all I use.
Why? Because the fibres of silk are much smoother than cotton, meaning they help tame hair so you don't wake up with a bird's nest. Same theory applies to skin, too - if you're a front sleeper like me. The result is less crumpled looking face and hair.
Make sure you’re changing your pillowcase twice a week. They can be quite pricey but there’s some right now on Temple and Webster that are a bargain.
A silk eye mask.
Same deal as the above, except I wear one because I am guaranteed to have a better night's sleep when I do.
