Sleep is great. It’s one of my favourite ‘me time’ activities, and is very necessary for fully-functioning humans. While you’re passed out from your exhausting, time-poor schedule, your body, and your skin, goes to work – Sleep enhances its ability to fight environmental and natural damage, which translates into a better and brighter complexion. Sleep reduces cortisol (the stress hormone), which is responsible for thinning skin and stretch marks. It causes melatonin (the sleep hormone) production, which acts as an antioxidant to fight age spots and fine lines. A good night's rest can also increase the efficiency of special growth hormones that repair and regenerate collagen-producing cells, which are responsible for skin's elasticity and tightness.
Now all of the above is going to happen naturally, if you’re getting your recommended 8 hours, however there are certainly things you can do to help the process along…

Why should you use a stabilised form of Vitamin A?
Vitamin A is a MAGIC Ingredient!
One that everyone needs to ensure their skin cells are functioning at their optimum capacity.
Healthy skin cells determine the epidermal thickness & colour & help produce collagen and elastin making the
SKIN LOOK FIRM AND YOUTHFUL..
Without Vitamin A in large quantities your skin WILL HAVE:
· Excess Pigmentation
· Altered DNA
Lacks of Vitamin A can also CONTRIBUTE TO THE FOLLOWING DISEASES:
· Skin Cancers
· Psoriasis and many more
It’s never too early or too late to start using a stabilised Vitamin A product!
Ensure the products you buy have effective active ingredients, and only buy air-tight dispensed products. Not tubs where germs can breed and active molecules can be degraded by exposure to light and air!
For new users of Vitamin A creams, buy a lower dose and gradually build up to higher doses to help normalise the skin, and avoid reactions caused by ingredients that are too active for your skin. Damaged skin loses its ability to use vitamin A normally; therefore you should start low and condition your skin gradually.
What you will begin to notice in your skin is:
· Lines and wrinkles will improve, tightening and lifting the skin
· Severe Photo damage from the sun can improve, evening the texture and appearance of the skin
· Pigmentation improvement is remarkable even when it is caused by hormones, bringing it to the surface and allowing it to slough away
· Reduction in redness to the skin can be vastly improved, leaving the skin more even and less aggravated
· Even skin cancers respond favourably to increased use of VITAMIN A
· Acne signs and symptoms can be alleviated
A good schedule for outstanding skin should be as simple as:
· Washing your face with simple water
· Apply your vitamin creams ( A,C,E )
· Apply Make Up if you choose-some include a sunscreen- added bonus! Or just sunscreen.
· FACE THE WORLD!
