The Beauty Sleep Ritual.
A primary assumption of the beauty industry rests in the fact that by applying certain products to your dermis, you will nourish and enrich it. Although we do not wholly disagree with that fact, you should also take into account another thing. Your skin is the total of nourishment from both sides – internal as well as external. This implies that the health of your skin will depend on the amount of energy and nourishment received by the cells of your under the dermis. This is turn, depends on other physiological mechanisms which determine the activity of your dermal cells. Sleep has a significant role to play in that.
When your sleep routine aligns with the biological clock of nature, your body automatically tunes into a frequency that affects the maximum efficiency of all cells. However, this is a state of healthy cellular function that is limited to your internal cells and those located in the sub-dermis and epidermis. Consequently, when you lose sleep, your cells tune into a lower frequency of physiological function, making the skin lose the sheen, and you look older. When this happens for a prolonged time, the cell replacement mechanism is ultimately hampered and slowed down, and more prominent signs of ageing appear.
Interference in Reparative Healing
When you sleep, your skin sleeps too. Sleeping is the time when the body heals, and so does the skin. When you keep losing sleep for an extended time, your skin does not get sufficient time to repair and heal the daily damage and tear. As a result, you might face a higher frequency of skin complications. These include frequent breakouts, skin rashes, acne and inflammation. This fact emphasises the importance of sleep in the timely healing of the skin. This is especially true in the case of people with susceptible skin. So if you count in the same, make sure you get enough sleep.
The first three hours of sleep mark the period when the maximum secretion of the human growth hormone is observed in the pituitary gland. This is essential for new cell regeneration. The middle two hours of sleep are the time for the release of melatonin. This hormone generates antioxidants and free radicals that interact with skin cells to render them healthy. The last three hours of sleep are marked by a decrease in the stress hormone. It’s during this phase that the body enters into its most relaxed state. Disturbing or reducing your sleep hampers one or more of these phases, which causes deterioration of skin health.
