healthy sleep cycles

Modern life has taken away our reliance on the sun, and this can cause problems for our sleep cycles. 

Our bodies evolved in rhythm with the daily cycles of light and dark, called our circadian rhythm, but with the invention of artificial light we no longer rely on the sun for our light source. 

We spend time indoors in the morning, which means we do not get a strong dose of UV light that's necessary to balance our circadian rhythm. Then we expose ourselves to blue light in the evening via phones and screens, which inhibits the production of melatonin, which is a sleep hormone responsible for helping us to get to sleep and stay asleep. This means we sleep for fewer hours than is healthy and many people suffer from insomnia. 

Restoring a good sleep cycle is crucial. We will be sharing more information with you on this topic as it is important for not only healthy skin, but to enable you to become the healthiest version of yourself possible.
