Watching TV before going to bed could be the cause of a bad night's sleep, warn researchers. Staying up to see the end of a programme steals time when viewers could have been asleep, which has knock-on effects for health, they claim. Psychiatrists were surprised to find TV viewing habits were critical in determining the amount of sleep individuals managed to get. Watching television appeared to be the most important cue for the start of the sleep period, rather than hours past sunset or other biological factors. Another theory is the sedentary activity replaces more vigorous pursuits such as sports, and it is this lack of exercise which results in poor sleep quality.
Researcher Dr Mathias Basner, of the Division of Sleep and Chronobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, said leisure activities were one of the most important determinants of the time available for sleep because 'we only have 24 hours in a day'. But sleep debt - the reduction in the amount of time spent sleeping - was a contributory factor to many chronic diseases ranging from diabetes to heart disease, said Dr Basner. Though checking in with friends and family might be as habitual as the rest of your bedtime routine, talking on the phone can be harmful to your quality of sleep.

There are many reasons that Sleeping Beauty is a fairy tale, but that Beauty didn’t wake up with a face full of zits after sleeping in her makeup for a hundred years is beyond us.
The slight increase in body temperature that happens when you sleep actually revs up the absorption of skin-care ingredients. We all cringe at the thought of going to the dentist, but we’re willing to bet that dentists cringe even more at the thought of us not brushing and flossing before bed.
A recent study found that those who spoke on the phone for a prolonged period of time before bed took longer to reach deep sleep (the most important kind, by the way) and had shorter bouts of it. A recent study found smokers had a higher level of brain activity during sleep than nonsmokers, leaving them less rested come morning. A recent study found that sleeping in tight, body-shaping garments interferes with circadian rhythms enough to decrease melatonin levels and increase body temperature—the exact opposite of what causes sleep.
Washing your face before bed rids the skin of a day’s worth of oil buildup and helps prevent clogged pores, which lead to blemishes and blackheads.


Sleep is essential for the body's ability to repair itself, with sleep deprivation linked to hormonal disruption which raises the risk of obesity and depression. Keep the clock far enough away from the bed so you can’t see it without making a conscious decision to get up, walk over, and look. Any temperature above 68 degrees doesn’t send your brain the right signal to fall into a deep sleep. Before Thomas Edison created the light bulb in 1879, people slept an average of ten hours a night.
If you’re seriously lazy, stash some wet cloth wipes in your bedside table (we love Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes) so you have no excuse not to come clean.
