When we think of skin care, we often think of the products we put on our skin, such as face masks and serums. However, there is an often-overlooked factor that plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin: sleep. We’ve all heard the saying “beauty sleep.” But is it just a myth or is there actually a link between sleeping and healthy skin? As it turns out, the connection between getting enough sleep and promoting healthy skin is a very real thing. Not only is sleep crucial for overall health, but it also plays a vital role in maintaining your skin’s health and appearance. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the science behind beauty sleep, why it’s important for your skin, and some tips for improving your sleep quality.

The Science Behind Sleep and Health

Before we dive into how sleep affects our skin, let’s first discuss why sleep is important for overall health. When we sleep, our bodies go into repair mode, recovering from the day’s activities and repairing any damage that may have occurred. Sleep is also crucial for our immune system, helping to fight off infections and illnesses. Additionally, sleep plays a role in maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress levels, and improving cognitive function.

How Much Sleep Do We Need

The amount of sleep needed varies from person to person, but the general consensus is that adults should aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Some people may function well on less, while others may require more. It’s important to listen to your body and determine how much sleep you need to feel your best.

Why Getting Enough Sleep Is Important for Overall Health

First and foremost, it’s important to understand that sleep is essential for overall health. During sleep, your body undergoes a number of crucial restorative processes. These processes help to recharge your immune system, regulate hormones, and support healthy brain function. In fact, a lack of sleep has been linked to a number of health problems, including high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. Lack of sleep can have a negative impact on our health in more ways than one. It’s essential to prioritize getting enough sleep to maintain overall health and well-being. It’s recommended that adults aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night to ensure optimal health.

Why Getting Enough Sleep Is Important for Healthy Skin

While getting enough sleep is important for overall health, it also plays a significant role in maintaining healthy skin. When you sleep, your body is busy repairing and regenerating skin cells. As a result, a lack of sleep can lead to a number of skin problems, including dark circles, wrinkles, and dullness. Additionally, research has shown that a lack of sleep can disrupt the skin’s barrier function, leading to increased sensitivity and a higher risk of infection.

Tips for Improving Your Sleep

Now that we understand the important role of sleep in maintaining healthy skin, let’s dive into some tips for improving your sleep quality. Firstly, it’s important to establish a consistent sleep routine. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to help regulate your body’s internal clock. Additionally, creating a relaxing sleep environment can be helpful. This can include using blackout curtains, removing electronic devices from the bedroom, and using a white noise machine or essential oils to help you relax.

Another helpful tip is to practice good sleep hygiene. This means avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bed, not eating heavy meals late at night, and avoiding screens before bedtime. Finally, consider incorporating relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises into your bedtime routine to help promote relaxation and improve your sleep.

Creating a calming bedtime routine, avoiding screens before bed, and keeping your bedroom dark and cool are all effective ways to improve sleep quality.

Healthy Skin Requires a Holistic Approach

While getting enough sleep is important for healthy skin, it’s not the only factor. Skin health is a holistic process that requires a healthy diet, exercise, and a solid skincare routine. Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats can help nourish the skin from within. Exercise helps increase blood flow to the skin, providing it with essential nutrients and oxygen. Finally, using quality skincare products tailored to your skin type can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best. Clinically proven and science backed skincare have been on the rise in recent years as consumers are getting better in understanding the importance of a wholesome approach to skin care.

Note to sleep on

In conclusion, beauty sleep is not just a myth – there is a real link between sleep and healthy skin. By getting enough sleep on a consistent basis, you can support your body’s natural restorative processes and maintain healthy, glowing skin. Lack of sleep can reduce the levels of collagen in your skin and lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and exacerbate skin conditions such as acne and eczema. Incorporating simple tips such as establishing a consistent sleep routine, creating a relaxing sleep environment, and practicing good sleep hygiene can help improve your sleep quality and support healthy, beautiful skin. So next time you hear the phrase “beauty sleep,” remember that it’s not just a cliche – it’s an essential aspect of promoting overall health and maintaining healthy skin.

Selma Durmo M. Pharm

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
