Full speed ahead for cell regeneration
The night is a magical time. As soon as we close our eyes, lots of exciting things start to happen. While we sleep, our cells regenerate faster than when we are awake and our whole body rests. This is because the hormones that control our metabolism redistribute themselves and this is very important for our skin.
Our body only produces the sleep hormone melatonin at night. It not only ensures you sleep healthily: its anti-oxidative effect irons out skin damage and has a positive influence on the cells’ ageing process.
Beautiful scents cause sweet dreams
Did you know that your nose never sleeps? Even when you are slumbering deeply, your nose is still awake. And that’s not all: it also influences our dreams. Researchers at the University of Bochum conducted an experiment that proved that smells can direct our dreams. They held different aromas under the noses of sleeping test candidates. The result: the scent of orange produces sweet dreams and smells considered to be unpleasant produced the opposite. So, make sure you have beautiful scents in your bedroom. It’s worth it!
