Beauty sleep - Sleeing in the Beauty Hole for fresh and glowing skin

Not getting the right amount sleep is a disaster for your skin. Night-time is when the skin repairs itself - you build new cells and replace collagen and elastin damaged by the day's exposure to sun and pollution. The skin is also more absorbent at night, which means it takes in treatment more effectively - in fact, research shows that up to 25% more of some vitamin treatments enter the skin at night compared to during the day.

Lack of sleep cuts these benefits and causes side effects of its own, such as dark circles, sallowness and puffiness under the eyes, as the skin diverts blood to fuel the tired brain and other organs. It can even cause spots, as studies show that people pick at their skin more when they are tired and this can introduce bacteria.

How to take Beauty Sleep?

In an ideal world we had all get the ideal amount sleep for our bodies every night, though this does not necessarily mean eight hours. Sleep experts admit that some of us do thrive on 4 hours a night, while others needs at least 10 to feel their best. To find out how much is right for you, go to bed when you are tired and get up when you wake up for a week, and calculate how long you spent in bed. Divide the week's total by seven - that's your optimum sleepload. If you find it hard to get to sleep, there are things that can help.

Researchers have found that taking a bath with the water at a temperature of 38 to 41 degrees centigrade promotes the production of sleep hormones; add some lavender or melissa oils to the water and you will compound these benefits. Milky drinks can also induce sleepiness and if all else fails, try some herbal help with supplements of valerian or passionflower, which have been shown to assits people to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
