Now Playing: Get your Beauty Sleep for beautiful skin!
You know how important good nutrition and exercise are for your health and beauty, but do you know sleep is crucial too? When you sleep, you are getting more than rest. Sleep researchers say “During sleeping, your body is healing and repairing itself!” For this reason, dermatologists normally suggest using your most "active" skin creams before going to bed. To avoid puffy, bloodshot eyes, dark under-eye circles and a pale washed-out complexion as well as for peak alertness and energy, experts say you need about eight hours of sleep a night.
Here are some tips to help you get the sleep you need:
Exercise every day. Even 20 minutes of walking can help keep stress hormones from interfering with your sleep.
Avoid large meals just before bedtime. An active digestive system can disrupt your sleep.
Minimize light, noise and extreme changes in temperature; your bedroom should be comfortably cool for you to rest well during sleeping.
Don't read, watch television or work in bed. Use the bed only to sleep. This helps to prevent you from developing sleep disorders.
Avoid caffeine, nicotine or other stimulants within four hours of bedtime.
Keep a relaxed mind before sleeping. Avoid thinking about work or business. Problems are endless, there will always be a tomorrow to solve your problems. An overactive brain will keep you tossing and turning in bed instead of getting quality sleep. Losing sleep isn't going to solve your problem.
