Lack of sleep = a big, bad disaster. It puts extra stress on your body and increases the levels of stress hormones to result in a tired, cranky, and older-looking you. Yes, that’s right – not enough sleep causes wrinkles and faster skin aging as it’s during your sleep that skin goes through vital repair and rejuvenation processes. They don’t call it ‘beauty sleep’ for nothing.
Not enough shut-eye causes higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which increases inflammation and the acceleration of aging and worsening of blemishes. It also reduces the skin’s ability to stay hydrated, making for a dull, lackluster complexion. Not forgetting the fact you’ll feel grouchy, unable to concentrate, and your emotions will be all over the place.
So if you’re feeling having trouble getting into the Land of Nod, and if counting sheep isn’t quite cutting it, these sleep-inducing sprays are here to help. They’ve been specially formulated to help you drift off, so you can spray your way to a good night’s sleep and wake up a true Sleeping Beauty.
