ASPIRE 2016 Vol. 01 7 SECRETS FOR BEAUTY SLEEP
What beauty risks are imposed
by lack of sleep?
If you have ample sleep, growth hormone is produced in your body while sleeping. This growth hormone helps to regenerate old tissues and stimulate your metabolism. Lack of sleep results in poor metabolism, thus disturbing your natural rhythm of skin cell regeneration. This causes your old skin to remain and also triggers skin problems such as blemishes, wrinkles, etc.

bitterness of celery.

Relax your mind with the
sweet smell of cocoa.
Cacao, the raw material of cocoa drinks contains a substance called theobromine. It is known to calm your nerves.
Aromas relieve you from
stress and tension.
To enjoy quality sleep, you must be in a relaxed state before going to bed. Put lavender, geranium or other plants with a relaxing aromatic effect close to your bed.
Avoid using smartphone
and laptop before bedtime.
Light from smartphone and laptop screens stimulates the brain, making it difficult for you to sleep. Try not to use your smartphone and laptop for about an hour before your bedtime.
Light stretching exercises relieve tension from the body. They also allow you to adjust easily during sleep and help to correct body misalignment.
Bedding greatly determines
the quality of sleep.
Preparing your bedding is important as doing so sends a signal to your brain to get ready for sleep. Place things that are unnecessary for sleeping away from the bed.
The SKY Series for gentle and even cooling.
If air from the air conditioner blows on you directly, your body temperature lowers resulting in light sleep. It is important to prevent cold air from blowing on you for too long.
“Maintain a comfortable environment to
improve the quality of sleep.
Cooling the room without blowing cool air directly on the body
prevents excessive cooling and protects your skin from drying.”
Panasonic's SKY Series, which is based on the RADIANT COOLING principle, sends the breeze onto the walls and ceiling to keep the entire room cool. Since the cold air doesn't directly contact the body, it also resolves the problem of uneven temperatures in various parts of the room, for greater comfort everywhere.
