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.

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?
