"Sleep is a virtue, We must honor and respect the virtues of a good night’s sleep. Our immune, nervous and muscular systems rejuvenate while we sleep."
A good night's sleep is essential to perfect skin, we all agree. Now what many forget is that what we need is quality, true rest – ideally for many hours! It will do wonders for your health.
While we sleep, our bodies produce growth hormones, these are important for cell renewal, our immune and nervous system, and they help repair tissue - including skin.
Cells have a life cycle, they are created and they die, and with repeated unsatisfying nights of sleep, cells fail to rejuvenate. Therefore, people who sleep poorly age more quickly, in addition to developing other health problems.
We know that the stress of your day makes it impossible to dedicate time to quality sleep, especially for eight hours straight. But we have good news! Even just 6 hours of deep, uninterrupted sleep can also have repairing effects.
Sleeping well does not mean sleeping many hours on the weekend, or that you like to sleep. Sleep is a daily exercise, we need to create a routine. Many envy those who can sleep a lot!
Do you know what the most beneficial schedule is for your body? Sleeping from 10 pm to 6 am. We must remember that our body is governed by the sun.
We sleep better during the nighttime, that’s when our bodies release melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland that induces deep sleep, this hormone decreases as we approach 30 years.
Tricks for better sleep:
1. Try to go to bed every night at the same time, it is essential to create a routine.
2. Lights should be off, avoid running the washing machine or strange background noises, silence is important.
3. The temperature in your room has to be comfortable, not too cold or too hot.
4. Do not bring your laptop, iPad or mobile to bed. They will keep you awake with their light and sounds.
5. Try these tricks for one month, you will see the difference.
THE BEST TREATMENT FOR YOUR SKIN: A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
As for your skin, yes, we should use night cosmetics before going to bed and not at any other time of day.
The first reason is that some lose their effectiveness when exposed to sunlight, others may put your skin at risk by not having any protection and may even cause blemishes or skin irritation.
The second reason is that they are much more effective at night, as your body is in full cell renewal mode while you sleep.
A very interesting new idea that has reached the market is called a bio-alarm clock
, which is an app for your mobile phone. It records your stages of sleep while you sleep and analyzes them on a graph.
It creates a profile page displaying all stages of your sleep, including the time you fall asleep, wake up, total sleep time and the overall average. Using the results, you can set an alarm to wake you up at the ideal time during the last 30 minutes of your sleep, thus avoiding waking up during deep sleep (REM).
REM sleep is when you are in a deep sleep, when your eyes have that rapid movement (hence the name), when you are dreaming.
How serious is to wake up when you are in REM sleep?
Not very, but you might feel a little different and more tired. You won’t have the feeling of waking from a restful sleep
. Sleep technicians in laboratories where tests are conducted are instructed not to wake patients if they are in REM. The most memorable dreams occur at this stage, in which muscle weakness and self-induced paralysis prevails.
Do these devices really work? Yes!
There are different brands that work on different devices. You'll have to see which best suits your smartphone.
It’s worth a try, start to analyze your nights’ sleep. It might make you more productive during the day and improve your health
, and logically also your skin.
