6 Ways to Get Your Beauty Sleep
It’s no secret that a good night’s sleep is vitally important to our health—both physical and mental. But in today’s fast-paced world, many of us fail to prioritize sleep as a factor in our overall well-being. Winter especially tends to affect the quality of our sleep, but there are ways to sleep better. Dr. Mehmet Oz recently wrote a blog post offering six ways to improve your sleep, including the following suggestions:
- Get a whiff of lavender
- Break a sweat
- Adopt a Mediterranean diet
- Check your medications
- Choose your dinner wisely
- Sleep on your side
See the entire blog post here for more information.
And there’s a reason they call it beauty sleep. A new study commissioned by Estee Lauder has shown conclusive proof that lack of sleep affects our appearance. This first-of-its-kind clinical trial demonstrated that poor sleepers’ skin shows increased aging and a slower recovery rate from environmental stressors that damage the skin. The study also shows that those who don’t get enough sleep have a poorer assessment of their own skin and facial appearance. Click here to learn more about this groundbreaking study.
