The symbiotic relationship between sleep & skin health
Sleep & skin health have a symbiotic relationship. 🔗 It's more than just looking tired after a bad night of sleep. 🥱 Powered by your circadian rhythm, your skin's repair cycle happens overnight. 🛌 When you miss out on good quality sleep, you also miss out on optimal DNA repair activity in the skin. 🛠
Melatonin plays a huge role in these processes. Not only is melatonin responsible for regulating your sleep-wake cycle 🔄 (helping start and sustain night sleep), but it's also believed to be *the* most effective lipophilic antioxidant - way more potent than vitamins C and E. Lipophilic antioxidants are readily absorbed by your skin and protect against UV light radiation and free radicals, which visibly advance skin aging.
Your body makes melatonin in your brain and in your skin, but as you age, it makes less and less. 📉 Plus, lifestyle factors can negatively impact melatonin production & release, like consuming caffeine ☕️, screentime at night📱💻, and even light pollution 🌃(outdoor artificial light). For so many people, eliminating all of these factors is impossible. That's why we made Mella. 👩🔬
Mella addresses the root problems, helping boost your body's melatonin supply so you can get the rest you need and the healthy skin you deserve. 💙
