Im convinced now that my acne is related to lack of sleep cos during some time off work recently where I was really relaxed I slept really well for like 10 hours a night. Now Im back at work I struggle to get even 7 hours sleep and I think its messing my skin up.

Can i get sleeping Tablets over the counter without a prescription in the UK if so which should I get and are they expensive?

Just get some melatonin.

get the smaller dosage, and try a third of that. Studies recommend 300 mcg as the optimum amount, but you might prefer more (but don't start with more - you might wind up oversleeping and being late to work). If you take too much melatonin, it won't be out of your system before morning, and you'll have trouble getting up. Also make sure to take it a good hour before you want to go to sleep, and allot yourself a full 8 hours.

Here in the good old USofA we use a sleep enhancer called Old Jack Daniels # 7... he usually does the trick for me
