Babies are cute, and our boys are no exception, but these precious little sleep-sucking bundles are not so cute at 1am, and again at 2am, 2.30am, 4am… you get the picture. Coupled with that, Emily and I had a few months of little, if not no work, after we had our babies. This happens when you work for yourself. All the momentum you gained gets swept from under your feet in an instant. We did anticipate it, but the ‘Don’t Know What You’ve Got Till It’s Gone’ mantra really rang true. So the stress of no work also meant no sleep. Then, after a pep talk from my hubby who has patiently guided and helped us through all our years of freelancing, we started to get back into the swing of things. Now, we have so much work we don’t know what to do with ourselves. Literally. So we’ve been working late every night and weekend for the past, say, six weeks now? Needless to say, we aren’t getting much sleep. At. All.
Imagine our delight when Estée Lauder delivered their new and improved Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II last week. Recent studies conducted by Estée Lauder have proven that lack of sleep has a definite effect on ageing your skin. Looking in the mirror lately, and noticing fine lines and my sad, sallow complexion, I completely agree. This revolutionary serum does a number of wonderful things while you sleep – it promotes natural nighttime purification helping to remove cellular debris which accelerates ageing and it synchronises skin to ensure that cellular repair happens at the right time.
I’ll be using this every night from tonight and will report back on the results.
