Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Sleep is supposed to be the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation. According to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne, while our bodies are busy rejuvenating and healing, tear and saliva production almost totally shut down, causing the typical morning dry mouth and crusty, bleary eyes, not to mention grogginess, dry skin and an occasional headache. Going for several hours without water while you sleep doesn’t help, nor does avoiding fluids before bedtime so you won’t have to go to the bathroom.
Sharon Kleyne recently reported on ways to avoid dehydration during sleep, including morning dry mouth and bleary eyes.
Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a research, education, technology and product development company specializing in fresh water, atmospheric water vapor and skin and eye dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the Research Center’s global signature product, provides a mist of 100% fresh water that instantly supplements eye and skin water content depleted during sleep. Kleyne also hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.
To help avoid dehydration during sleep, Kleyne recommends a glass of warm water before going to bed. If waking up to go to the bathroom is a concern, Kleyne suggests that the water be warm or slightly hot. Warm water is better absorbed and retained longer.
Skin and eye water, and mouth and body water depleted during sleep according to Kleyne, should be replenished the moment one awakens. The best way to accomplish this, says Kleyne, is to drink a large glass – or two glasses - of warm water soon after awakening.
Kleyne offers the following additional suggestions for humidifying dehydrated skin, eyes, breathing passages and body upon arising in the morning:
Try to leave a window open in the bedroom while you sleep, says Kleyne, and in the bathroom while you shower and wash up, to increase the amount of fresh, oxygenated, humid, outdoors air in the room.
If possible, says Kleyne, linger and enjoy showering. Deeply inhale the steam in the shower. If taking a bath, follow it with a quick shower to wash off the bath residue.
Kleyne suggests a morning washing routine in which repeated warm compresses are applied to the face, with eyes open. Begin with a mild liquid soap and end with just water. Don’t use the soap when applying the compress to eyes. Wring out and rinse the compress between applications, and breathe deeply while it is on the face.
For those who have the time, Kleyne suggests a modification of the old barbershop technique of wrapping the face with a hot, steamy towel. With towel or washcloth, make a little tent over the face Keep eyes opened and inhale deeply for a minute or two.
Before and after facial cleansing, Kleyne recommends the application of an all-water, pH balanced eye and skin humidifying mist. The products Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®, from Kleyne’s Bio Logic Aqua research, are ideal for this purpose.
Facial cleansing and moisturizing, according to Kleyne, should be concluded by applying a moisture-sealing skin make-up The ideal lotion or base or will have a sunscreen factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
Kleyne suggests keeping keep Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® or Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® near the bed and in the bathroom. Apply whenever eyes, skin or mouth discomfort is felt upon waking up at night or on arising in the morning.
