The pursuit of healthy, ageless skin is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Products are abundant. Advertisements for laser surgery, Botox, creams, and fillers run rampant across TV screens. Actors and actresses push age-defying products every day to their audiences. If they work for you, great, but let’s get down to a few basics that you can add to your daily routine. Melatonin and restful sleep play an important role in skin aging. Link here.
Skin Health Basics with Melatonin
Melatonin is produced in the absence of light exposure. Natural occurring melatonin is an antioxidant which prevents cell and protein inflammation. Less cellular and protein damage promotes healthy skin cells. Also, melatonin is shown to keep collagen and elastin producing cells at optimal levels. Collagen and elastin contribute to strong and resilient skin. Topical melatonin could help prevent further damage described above. Link here.
Perception of Your Skin with Sleep and Melatonin
Studies show that skin will lose some of its restorative powers with less sleep. They call it beauty-sleep for a reason. Link here. With less sleep skin perception is more negative, skin water loss is apparent, and skin repair is less productive after damaging light exposure. Lastly people who slept more had higher ratings for physical attractiveness and skin perception. Amazing how a good night’s rest will do for one’s psyche. Without any fillers etc., sleep obviously plays a pivotal role in skin appearance.
There are many products that promote healthy skin, but remember the basics. Good sleep, water, and a healthy diet will go a long way in keeping skin healthy. For an extra boost topical melatonin and other vitamin creams could help repair and rejuvenate skin.
