Aim for 7 - 9 hours of continuous deep sleep as part of your beauty routine and you would see amazing benefits for your beauty and health.
Here are 5 ways you can sleep better and 5 benefits of getting your beauty sleep.
How to Achieve Great Beauty Sleep ?
As simple as getting your beauty sleep we know that some times "just closing your eyes" won't make it, in fact, 16% of Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Dr. Shivani Gupta teaches us that as important as the number of hours we sleep is the quality of our sleep and how many REM cycles we achieve. Her supplement brand, Fusionary Formulas, has a complete collection of amazing products aimed to help us get great quality beauty sleep.
I highly recommend to watch her IGTV series on sleep, I summarized for you five easy changes we can make in our routine to achieve better and more snooze time.
Go to sleep before 10 pm. Learn your Circadian Rhythm
The Circadian Rhythm is a 24-hour internal clock that is running in the background of the brain and cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. It's regulated according to the environment, our routine, and our hormone levels. Dr. Shivani explains in her video that going to sleep before 10 pm is essential for our Circadian Rhythm to work at its best. Also, the more you sleep the deeper and better quality sleep you get, going to bed early is a great way to secure that beauty sleep time.
Take Magnesium or even better Fusionary Formulas Deep Sleep
Dr. Shivani created a full collection of products at Fusionary Formulas dedicated to helping us get Deep Sleep — Is plant-based all-natural formula utilizes clinically proven ingredients such as magnesium and melatonin to optimize deep REM sleep. I started using it, taking a few drops before bed (one drop per sleep hour). I wake up refreshed, energized and glowing.
Dr. Shivani explains that, "Maintaining healthy magnesium levels often leads to deeper, more sound sleep. Magnesium plays a role in supporting deep, restorative sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep. Research indicates supplemental magnesium can improve sleep quality, especially in people with poor sleep. Magnesium can also help insomnia that’s linked to the sleep disorder restless-leg syndrome."
Set your room for sleep
Set up your room to create a cozy atmosphere that enhances your sleep. In her IGTV series about sleep, Dr. Shivani gives us easy tips to activate our senses and cue sleep. Dim the lights, add some relaxing essential oils to a diffuser, have some tea and cool the room and just breathe and relax to get great quality Deep Sleep.
As you know I love tea. Herbal blends are known for being effective and relaxing. Dr. Shivani created this amazing blend that helps us fall asleep easily and deeply. This blend of Ayurvedic herbs has been used for thousands of years to help relax the mind and help with relaxation before sleep. Use tea to cue your night routine and get revitalizing healthy sleep.
Take some time for yourself and to reduce stress. Exercise, take relaxing baths, massages or meditate. The more your brain is relaxed the easier it is for it to shut down so you can get restful sleep.
