Beauty Sleep

Like the all good things which are provided by the nature – absolutely free to us, is sound sleep. It is the cheapest beauty treatment you can very well give yourself. No beauty cream, no facials, no amount of makeup can give you the glow, fresh and relaxed look that a sound sleep provides. Skincare specialists the world over know this, which is why while prescribing medicine for any skin problems, they use a mild tranquilizer containing drugs.

Without the sleep you need, you’ll look older and your skin will look drier. Your skin renews itself as you sleep which is why too little sleep can make your skin look tired and dull. Sleep renews and refreshes us and is vital for good health and beauty. The average need for an individual is eight hours; it varies from person to person. Identify your need by the way you feel when you wake up.

Self discipline is required to get required amount of sleep. Even than it is not always possible to get that but do be sure that you’re not regularly losing out on sleep. Never reach the awful stage where you feel incredibly tired and your body cries out for sleep.

There may be various reasons for not getting into bed in natural bedtime, see if you are addicted to anyone of them.

  • Late night TV that keeps you stuck in your chair.

  • Major change in your life.

  • You are rushing around hectically, or eating erratically or eating late?

  • Too much intake of coffee or tea!

  • Your mattress is too soft or too hard, old and lumpy1

  • Use of synthetic bed sheet!

  • Your pillows are plump or old and saggy!

The following simple tips are helpful for sound sleep:

  • Create a bedtime routine. Make an effort to rearrange the pattern of your evenings.

  • Limit your tea and coffee intake to five or six cups a day, and don’t drink any within an hour of your bedtime.

  • You spend a sizeable time of your life sleeping, so don’t economize on the mattress and bed you choose. Buy the best. Always use cotton bed sheet while sleeping and your pillows should give enough support to your weary head. Wear loose cotton dress while going to bed.

  • Allow yourself a clear half hour to unwind, bath, have a warm milk, cleanse your face, brush your hair and teeth – that way, you’ll prepare yourself mentally for sleep. Cleanse your face every night no matter how tired you are with a gentle cleanser.

  • Close your eyes and breathe in very deeply, concentrate on the days pleasant happenings.

  • font face="Arial" style="font-size: 11pt">Relax all your muscles, simple meditation techniques helps in inducing sleep.

  • If your mind seems to be obsessed with any particular problem and keeps reverting to it, try remembering the happy memories. Listen to music.

  • Try taking a gentle walk after dinner. Vigorous exercise late at night is not good, but a quiet stroll can get you in the mood for sleep.

  • Try having at least one early night every week when you’re in bed by 10 at the latest.

If you still feel tired after this and your diet is good, have a check-up with your doctor.

Article Comment Hi,

I am 24 yrs old girl. I am not addicted of the mentioned problems and even have every thing good to sleep. Whole night I am not feeling sleepy and at morning time at 7 or 8 I started feeling very sleepy because of that my day becomes very lazy and I feel energy-less, weak and very tired that's why I am unable to do any work at home.
Please suggest me how can I get a sound sleep at night and have a active day?

Thanks
