Want Gorgeous Hair? Get Your Beauty Sleep!

A good night’s sleep…it is the ultimate dream! *wink* But really, after a solid 7-8 hours, don’t you wake up feeling renewed and refreshed and ready to conquer the world? We know that the proper amount of sleep is good for our overall wellbeing – it keeps the brain and body functioning at optimal levels. But restorative sleep is exceedingly important for the health of our skin and our hair too! What?

That’s right – not getting enough quality sleep can affect your hair health! The Deep Sleep phase is the most important one for the physical restoration – it is the quiet phase of sleep where the body actually slows down and growth and healing happen. During deep sleep, the body releases growth hormones which aid in cell repair and healthy new cell growth in tissues and organs throughout the body. This is when the protein synthesis of our hair happens as well as the regeneration cycle of the skin cells!

In addition to the protein synthesis of the hair, this Deep Sleep phase – or Restorative sleep provides the growth hormones and enzymes needed for healthy hair. Plus, studies have shown that melatonin, a natural hormone that helps your body know it’s time to sleep, can also increase hair growth. A decrease in your body’s melatonin levels not only causes sleep issues but it can lead to hair loss!

It’s believed that adding a melatonin supplement might help with sleep issues like insomnia or people who need to adjust their sleep-wake cycles due to specific situations like jetlag or daily work schedule changes. But it is also a powerful antioxidant with other health benefits – including increased hair growth. An easy way to supplement your melatonin and get great sleep is with Glotrition’s Sleep Beauty Booster Shot.

It contains Melatonin and Chamomile to help with relaxation and sleep quality as well as Aloe Sterols for skin hydration, improvement in wrinkles, and skin elasticity.
