The Importance of Beauty Sleep

SSHow much sleep do you need? Experts say most people require between seven to nine hours of sleep in order to maintain good health. However, not just enough sleep but also good, deep sleep is very important to prevent a variety of health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and skin problems.

The term beauty sleep, which refers to the act of sleeping early to maintain healthy, beautiful skin, is definitely a reality for many people around the globe. Sleep repairs tired skin and research has shown that the whole body goes into repair mode when you sleep.

While you sleep, your skin renews itself as new skin cells grow and replace older cells. In addition, during your sleep, a number of hormonal and metabolic changes happen in the body and a good number of these changes happen in the skin and lack of sleep can significantly disrupt those processes. For example, lack of sleep causes blood vessels to dilate, causing the look of dark circles. It can also increase stress levels, consequently making you tired, angry, sad, and increasing the chance of premature wrinkles.

If your main concern is skin care, three easy tips can make a big difference for you. First, follow a beauty regimen with a cleanse before going to bed using a mild or exfoliating cleanser as well as a moisturizing cream, preferably a night cream. Second, avoid smoking, alcohol and heavy eating in late hours not only to prevent skin issues but also to improve overall sleep. Lastly, it is highly recommended that you establish a good sleep habit, going to bed and waking up around the same time every day.

    Yes very true, sleep deprivation also causes memory problems and if it is a chronic problem it may lead to early amnesia. So sleep well my friends!

    I keep my body cool and reduce painful inflammation that can keep me awake by placing an ice jell pack under my bottom sheet in the area of aches and pains. This relieves inflammation with out drugs and helps me fall asleep faster. I also take one Himalaya Herbal Healthcare – Ashwagandha Anti-Stress & Energy before bed. For some people it gives them energy but for me it calms my mind and helps me fall asleep faster.
