Beauty Sleep, Not Just A Saying!

When you don’t get enough sleep it affects you both physically and psychologically.

Sleep is still a bit of mystery, it is still not fully understood what all of sleeps functions are.

Here is what we do know:

  • Sleep is a vital to our health.

  • It helps our body heal itself; tissue growth, wound repair, and hormones are released (especially appetite regulating, growth and muscle developing hormones).

  • Your blood pressure drops, your muscles relax, and your immune system produces the white blood cells it needs.

  • An adult needs between 7-9 hours of sleep.

  • When you don’t have enough sleep your complexion can become dull and you get dark under eye circles making you look haggard.

According to BMJ, a British medical journal,

“The study conducted by Axelsson et al has reaffirmed the existence of a correlation between sleep and good health and also; between attractiveness and health. There has been an undivided opinion of the practitioners of traditional systems of medicine (e.g. Ayurveda and Unani) that a certain ‘quantum’ of sleep is necessary for the normal balance among the physical, mental and social well-being of an individual. The adequate sleep is considered to have an association with looks (beauty), cognitive abilities; and longevity of the individual. The sleep deprivation will definitely have an adverse effect on the total health of an individual in the long term. Beauty cannot remain unaffected in case of sleep deprivation – be it short-termed or prolonged.” January 20, 2011
