Staying Glam: A Good Night’s Sleep

icon-sleep

Everyone knows that sleep is an important ingredient in the ongoing beauty process. Quality sleep can help your skin heal, reduce breakouts, even your skin tone, and prevent bags under the eyes. Sleep helps your brain work properly. While you’re sleeping, your brain is preparing for the next day. It’s forming new pathways to help you learn and remember information. Sleep helps us renew energy and gets us both physically and mentally ready for the day to come.

Unfortunately, if you are not getting enough quality sleep, or not waking up / falling asleep with the proper lighting or bed in your room, your skin, mind and other aspects of your overall health may suffer the consequences. Luckily there are some new products on the market these days that are helping people like you and I to stay glam through the proper sleeping habits while in the proper lighting situations.

  • FraSen – The world’s top sleep mask that actually connects to a phone app to help you analyze your sleeping patterns. The mask works wonders for those of us who can’t fall asleep right away, as it is proven to have a 33% reduced sleep induction time. A rep. for the company tells It’s A Glam Thing that, “A good night’s sleep is very important for a person’s productivity and for a person’s health long-term. Research proves that insufficient sleep drops the productivity level of a person during the day time. Also, by not getting enough sleep constantly, a person risk of getting a number of diseases including heart attack, dementia, depression, etc. increases dramatically.”
  • Adjustable Beds – Have you ever seen commercials for adjustable beds and wondered if they really invoke a good night’s sleep? According to a rep. from Anderson Manufacturing Co., they actually do work and are most effective in reducing pain in some people with hip and knee pain, which leads to better quality sleep, and of course that leads to overall glam the next day. “We also recommend adjustable beds or wedge pillows for patients with acid reflux. Increasing the angle at the head of the bed can reduce the amount of acid in the throat and airway, thus reducing the amount of arousals caused by reflux. The fewer arousals a person has, the better their quality of sleep.”
  • SVET Rated the world’s healthiest light bulb with the highest quality light output, which mimics the natural light to help you to improve your health and mental state. These LED bulbs help to prevent seasonal affective disorder, as it repeats the natural dynamic of the light following your biological rhythm so that you get more bluish light in the morning to energize you for the rest of the day, and a nice ‘sunset type’ light in the evening as you slowly fall asleep. Aleksey Dubov, the creator of the SVET bulb explains more to It’s A Glam Thing saying, “Due to our human nature, any light is a signal for our body to stay awake. Overuse of artificial lighting and other lighting sources leads our bodies astray, disrupting our sleeping patterns. It all comes from blue light. Blue light suppresses melatonin – a hormone naturally produced by the body at nighttime when it is dark. It is necessary for a proper sleep, but it is also a powerful antioxidant and has many beneficial health effects. That means the more light we are exposed to as we get ready for bed, the harder it will be to fall asleep and get a good night’s rest. Any immediate shifts from bright light to darkness can also make it harder to get to sleep. SVET decreases the blue component of the light spectrum during late evening hours prior to sleep time. It helps you fall asleep faster and have better sleep in general. SVET Dawn simulation creates veritable Dawn lighting in your room, providing you with a completely stressless, and healthy way to wake up.”

These three components just listed go together to help give you the best chance at feeling glamorous and your healthiest self each day. Slava Solonitsyn, the co-founder of EnchantVC, an accelerator and seed fund company for various types of hardware products around the globe summed up everything for us stating, “[To be glamorous] is to live a life that everyone wants to live, and knowing about one’s body and getting personalized feedback to improve one’s lifestyle can be a great way. Sleep masks, proper light bulbs, and other elements help people to improve their feelings and health.”
