What Can Melatonin Products Do for Me?
Melatonin supplements have been around for a long time for improving our sleep patterns and helping with several sleep conditions, such as insomnia and jetlag.
However, the world of skincare has seen a recent rise in plant-derived beauty treatments, and several brands and skincare experts have discovered the power of topical melatonin. Supported by scientific evidence, topical melatonin is now trending as a revolutionary, powerful ingredient to change the rules of skincare.
Research suggests that melatonin plays various important roles in our body beyond sleep. For example, when used topically, melatonin is beneficial for all skin types and age groups – we call it a melatonin miracle.
The “Melatonin Miracle”
Melatonin is an incredible ingredient with a powerful array of benefits like no other.
While it is mostly known as a powerful aid against sleep disorders, it is also responsible for your skin’s natural repair cycle and is a key skincare ally.
At Mella, we don’t just sell melatonin-infused skincare. We strongly believe in the power of melatonin, and we can’t wait to show you what it can do for you.
Sit back, grab yourself some tea (or decaf coffee!), and follow us on this journey to discover the melatonin miracle. Whether you have acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, or are looking to tackle premature signs of aging, our Mella line is here to help.
Protecting and Regenerating Your Skin
From boosting your body’s natural repair cycle, promoting a great night’s sleep, and defending against environmental stressors, this topic always begs the question – what CAN’T melatonin do?
But let’s start from the basics.
Your skin contains a system known as the melatoninergic system. This system produces, regulates, and receives melatonin in the skin. However, as we age, the number of these receptors decreases, as does how much melatonin they can store.
Melatonin is believed to be the most effective lipophilic antioxidant, used to support collagen production, and visibly rejuvenate your skin.
In today’s modern society, our skin is constantly exposed to all kinds of oxidants. Due to this, our microbiome is placed under extreme stress as the healthy bacteria that lives on our skin is combatted by pathogens. With the strain of UV light and pollutants, we need to protect our skin now more than ever.
A 2019 study published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences found that topical melatonin can offer a formidable defense against skin damage caused by a number of hostile stressors, such as pollution, environmental toxins, and UV radiation. A more recent study confirmed that night creams formulated with melatonin delivered a noticeable improvement in visible signs of sun damage and skin reactivity.
Melatonin also rules your body’s nightly repair cycle. By adding melatonin to your skincare routine, you boost your body’s ability to restore your skin.
Studies have shown that the topical application of melatonin can reverse the decline of its levels as you age, acting as the perfect solution to keep your skin looking youthful and your skin barrier supported.
Brighter Skin, Dreamier Nights
Melatonin is most commonly known as a sleep aid. When ingested as a supplement, this naturally-occurring hormone enters your bloodstream to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake feeling refreshed. However, a lot of folks also experience downsides from ingesting melatonin, such as next-day drowsiness, grogginess, and early morning wakings. Plus, ingested melatonin doesn't offer benefits to the skin as degrades in your liver before it can get there.
Mella maximizes the benefits melatonin provides to your skin, sleep, and wellbeing without the downsides. When the sun goes down, your body naturally releases its melatonin reserves -- this includes the melatonin your body created and that is applied via Mella products. This signals your circadian rhythm that it's time to wind down for sleep, and allows you to reap the sleep benefits of melatonin without daytime drowsiness.
In fact, in our consumer trial, panelists’ middle-of-the-night wakings were cut in half, and, as a result of better sleep, our panelists reported having improved mental clarity and focus during the day.
