It’s important to get your beauty sleep. After all, it’s a pretty easy way to maintain your appearance. In all seriousness, medical professionals state that is is important for most people to get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep so that the body can have an opportunity to recover and repair itself. Also, restful sleep tends to produce positive results within the day and greater results within a month. According to sleep specialists, having less than 6 hours of sleep can affect or change the appearance of a person and your overall health as well.
Potential Signs of Inadequate Sleep
The most common body signs of sleep deficit and exhaustion include swollen or red eyes, dark circles, sagging eyelids and drooping corners of the mouth. According to doctors, lack of adequate sleep can also result in hair loss because the blood flow of the body will decrease causing hair follicles to get lesser nourishment. Dark circles under the eyes can also occur due to sleep deprivation since the blood does not flow well. However, dark circles can be diminished by drinking a lot of water and elevating the head by sleeping with an extra pillow. Little amounts of sleep will also result in dull complexions and wrinkles.
Importance of Sleep
Sleep apnea is a complex health issue that can exercise a powerful influence over one’s sleep. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an expert on such matters, and he started the Healthy Heart Sleep as a channel to collaborate with other physicians. This platform allowed him to offer advice on implementing his intersection model for health care by use of oral appliances to reduce sleep apnea. The public was receptive to the concept which led him to present lectures to doctors on providing treatment for sleep patients via Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012.
