Good Sleep, Good Skin

Working hard all day? Want to party all night? Not the best idea for your skin. Studies show that a good night’s sleep will make your skin look younger and fresher. Good sleep, good skin!

Good Sleep Good Skin

Did you know that while you are sleeping, your body is working hard? During night sleep hours is when repair and the rejuvenating process takes place in your body.

Cell Regeneration

HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is responsible for cell growth and cell rejuvenation. Studies have noted that HGH is released more while you sleep, than during your waking hours.  While you are sleeping, your human machine is trying to correct the damage to your skin from the sun, stress, food, and the environment. The better you sleep the better your cell regeneration is, the better your skin is.

Yale dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, MD, says that when you don’t get enough sleep, the body produces excess cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest, Perricone says, and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more “elastic,” and less likely to wrinkle. WebMD


Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland. It’s part of our amazing machine that regulates our body’s sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is produced during the evening and night, it likes darkness! In addition to it helping us sleep, Melatonin is a very strong antioxidant and helps to repair UV damaged skin cells.

I have always wondered why Sleeping Beauty had such beautiful skin!

Now that you know what you have to do, how do, you do it?

Sleep Better Tips:

  • Organize your day so that you will have between 7-9 hours of sleep on an average.
  • Don’t eat heavy at night. Stay away from carbs at night – it takes a long time for them to break down and you don’t need a burst of energy at 11:00pm
  • Avoid caffeine from afternoon onwards.
  • Prepare your bedroom for sleeping! Turn off the TV, the radio and keep your phone far from your bed.
  •  Have a glass of warm milk. It’s not a myth; there is clinical research that shows its effectiveness as a sleep aid (due to tryptophan in milk). It also just has a very natural soothing effect, especially if you drink it slowly.
  • Keep your bedroom dark and uncluttered.
  • Before you go to sleep clean your skin and then don’t forget to nourish it with a rich moisturizer.


Enjoy your sleep and wake up feeling beautiful.  What are your bedtime rituals for waking up refreshed and wrinkle free?

Beautiful Technology

The cosmetic and beauty industry has been growing at the speed of light over the last 4 decades. Once, there were only a few major brands sharing the market, today there are hundreds of thousands. New ideas, new formulations, and new technologies, guarantee for interesting new products.
While new products are being discovered, it is a combination of many factors that bring advanced products to market. Today companies are looking deeper into human biology, electronic devices, and technological advances in production, manufacturing environmentally friendly products and packaging and cleaner production facilities.


Amid today’s advancements in medical procedures, a person can rebuild the look of their face surgically taking off years; but at what price? There are medical risks (even advanced medicine has risks) and the procedures are still very expensive and not for everyone.

NASA Research

Research into anti aging is probably one of the hottest discussions in both cosmetic, and technology laboratories. While NASA was doing research using Light Emitting Diode (LED) Technology on plant growth, they realized that the LED’s could help heal wounded skin. Because the original findings came out of NASA, the FDA was quick on giving it clearance. Researchers took it a step further and studies proved that LED Therapy stimulates the skins natural production of elastin and collagen. More elastin and collagen in your skin, the less wrinkles and loss of tone you will have.


Natural ingredients such as Jojoba and Shea Butter have been around for centuries, however the combination of basic ingredients with new technologies for application is shaking up the cosmetic industry and taking on the hi-tech world. Just a few years ago aestheticians’ treatment rooms were filled with heavy clunky “machinery” were as today with the world of electronics getting “smaller”, professionals can offer the same and better results from the newer, smarter, smaller devices.


Synoia Technologies is a world leader in combining tech and beauty. The technologically advanced WISHpro System is both comfortable for the professional to use and the client to receive treatment with. It is the first cordless device of its kind. The system has a wide range of protocols from anti-aging, rejuvenation, and peeling using the various technology heads including LED Therapy and micro current together with the cosmetic capsules. The smart system has been built so that future technology heads and new capsules will be able adaptable to the device.
