Deep sleep may truly be beauty sleep. During a deep sleep, your body releases growth hormones that work to repair and rebuild body cells; your body works hard to rejuvenate tissues through a peak of cell division at around 2am.

Our body was designed to sync with the cycles of nature, including daylight and darkness, with the optimal time for sleep at 10pm or 11pm. This is the time when melatonin, the sleep hormone, comes out: getting rid of free radicals, repairing damage, and keeping your skin supple and healthy.

THERE’S NO BEAUTY SLEEP AFTER MIDNIGHT!

What would happen if you lack of beauty sleep?

  • Body fat percentage is negatively affected
  • Risk of chronic disease
  • More unnecessary wrinkles that could have been reduced if you have enough beauty sleep
  • Brain activities that control emotions, decision-making processes and social interactions are reduced
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Excess stress hormone
  • Fatigue

How to get your beauty sleep?

  • Get to bed at 10pm or 11pm
  • Exercise everyday, even 20 minutes a day helps
  • Avoid large meals before bed. You don’t want an active digestive system to disrupt your sleep
  • Keep regular hours for sleeping and waking — in other words, make this your habit

Enjoy your beauty sleep — you’ll love it! :)
