There was a night last week when I had 2 hours of sleep…. It was a stressful day and sleep eluded me big time!
I awoke to…. puffy eyes, depression and some serious anxiety. My skin looked like dirt… dehydrated and gray. My joints felt seriously inflamed… I was achy all over…. And I had serious sugar cravings to boot. To say that it was a shitty day…. is an understatement. While I could hide most of my NO-SLEEP symptoms… my face told the true story. Sleep is something we take for granted… but when it is in short supply our beauty takes a real hit. Sleep is essential for beautiful skin, hair, nails and teeth. So what’s a sleepless girl to do? Pop on a bracelet? YES!!
I just received the “Active Edge” bracelet…. a beautiful woven bracelet with a seriously beautiful silver clasp. The Active Edge Bracelet has a proprietary process in which they have embedded low frequencies into the material. The benefits of exposing the human body to certain low frequencies are many. During clinical trials… many people reported a serious improvement in sleep. When worn… medical experts believe that the bracelet stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, which increases blood flow, oxygen intake and reduces inflammation… all benefits of a good nights sleep. I just received… so I promise to report back in on hopefully this genius little sleep bracelet!!
Now here’s where a great nights sleep get’s a little shaky…. Sleep can also hurt our faces in a serious way if we don’t sleep properly.
I read an article 20 years ago about how sleeping on your face can cause serious wrinkles and actually cause grooves in the skin where the pressure of the skin meets the pillow. From that moment on I swore to sleep with my head off the pillow. I started sleeping by resting my temple on my fist… so my facial skin never touched the pillow. VIOLA!! I succeeded for many years sleeping that way…. until recently…. where I go into what seams like a deeper sleep and I end up with my face mashed on the pillow. NOT GOOD!! What’s a face mashing girl and her readers to do? Sleep on your back and if you are a side sleeper…. you must use a pillow that allows your back and neck to take the pressure of our facial skin. One of my favorites and one I wrote about months back…. The Juverest Pillow.
So My Most Beautiful Readers…. While sleep is so important to our beauty…. so is sleeping properly. And I do promise to report back in on the “Active Edge” bracelet…. what could be a revolutionary way to induce sleep!!
