Is Beauty Sleep Real?

Is Beauty Sleep Real?

MenoLabs News | Tue, Feb 02, 2021

Health is beautiful, and it isn’t merely skin-deep. However, your skin can tell you if you’re missing an important element of health on the inside. Are you experiencing dry skin more often than usual? Is your skin feeling strained, itchy, or looking dull? There may be something you can do about it. 

Two Things That Keep Skin Healthy

Your skin relies on multiple metabolic processes that take place inside your body, the two most important processes are sleep and nutrient absorption. Both processes help protect and preserve your skin in different ways. Each process is controlled by one of two of your most powerful information hubs, your brain, and your gut microbiome. 

Your Gut Microbiome

Your gut microbiome is like your nutritional library. It’s where food gets broken down and extracted by your gut bacteria. Once your gut bacteria extract these nutrients, they pass them into the bloodstream through the intestinal wall. These nutrients house information that then gets red by your brain and directed to all the other systems in your body. Your skin uses these nutrients to help build new proteins like collagen, eliminate free radicals, lower oxidative stress, repair damaged cells, and retain moisture. 

Your gut bacteria are essential to carrying out this important process. So what happens when those gut bacteria aren’t healthy enough to do so? Your gut bacteria can become imbalanced, and when they do, it can cause problems. When there’s an overgrowth of certain bacterial cultures and an undergrowth of others, the gut microbiome has more difficulty extracting nutrients from food effectively. 

Your Sleep Quality

So if the gut microbiome is the nutritional library, what role does sleep play in this double act? Sleeping helps maintain your skin’s immune response. When skin cells get damaged from UV light or become dry, your body triggers an immune system response to help repair the damage. Sleep helps maintain your immune system so that it can perform these tasks. 

When we sleep, blood flow to the skin increases. This causes our skin’s immune response to go into overtime. Skin starts to repair itself in a number of different ways. It rebuilds collagen, the proteins that create the structural connective tissues in your skin. Your skin’s immune response goes into overtime when you’re asleep. During sleep, your skin repairs cells that have been damaged by UV exposure. This can help improve skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles and age spots. 

Unlocking The Power of Beauty Rest

The combination of the gut microbiome and sleep is essential to protecting your skin’s health. So what can you do to help this process? Unlock the power of Beauty Rest!

Beauty Rest is the powerful combination of our MenoGlow probiotic supplements and our Well Rested sleep aid formula! By combining these two products, you can help keep your gut bacteria healthy and support regular sleep cycles. So, how do they work? 

MenoGlow is designed to help you repopulate your gut microbiome with beneficial bacteria and feed them specific nutrients that can help maintain your skin’s health. Of the four primary probiotic strains that MenoGlow has, two of these strains specifically help support healthy skin. A third strain helps support your body’s immunoregulation. Together, these bacterial strains can help your gut microbiome better regulate nutrient absorption to help skin maintain its repairing capabilities. 

But that’s not all! MenoGlow is also formulated with specific nutritional ingredients designed to help your skin in a variety of ways. Nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, and Zinc can all help maintain your skin’s immune response. While other nutrients like methylated folate and riboflavin can help your skin fight back against oxidative stress, free radicals, and help keep not just your skin healthy, but also your hair and nails! 

As powerful as these ingredients are, the help from our Well Rested sleep aid, helps them to be even more effective. Well Rested is specially formulated with ingredients to help support quality sleep. With amino acids like tryptophan, theanine, and glycine, the brain can more effectively synthesize and release neurotransmitters and other neurochemicals that help induce sleep. Additionally, Well Rested contains necessary sleep hormones that your brain and body need to start the sleep process, like melatonin and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). These sleep hormones help relax your muscles, lower heart rate, and reduce neural activity to keep both your brain and your body in a state of calm. 

Give Your Skin What It Needs!

Knowing what your skin needs to stay healthy is only half the battle! The other half is giving it what it needs. Help maintain a regular sleep cycle, improve your sleep quality, and support your skin’s immune health with Beauty Rest! Take care of your skin from the inside out.
