Comfortable Home, Skin Irritated? Fix It!

A home is a place of shelter and rest for tired bodies after busy activities and work outside. So it's no wonder that many people spend all day at home, especially after several days of exhausting work for five days.

Many things can be done at home, and one of my favorite activities is sleeping. According to a survey conducted by Clockify, the most frequent activity in a year is sleeping among the population.

This research shows that 38% of human time is spent sleeping. So it's no wonder that Sleepdoctor notes that about 56% of Americans follow this practice, sleeping more on weekends than they do during the weekdays, but does that work? Sleeping in on weekends has pros and cons, and scientists remain undecided as to whether it’s effective.

Sleepdoctor also notes that there are two benefits to sleeping on weekends. The first is relaxation. There’s no denying it: sleeping late on weekends feels good. Sleeping in on weekends often starts in adolescence and continues into adulthood. After a tiring week filled with work, social, and family responsibilities, sleeping in can feel like a reward.

The second is potential sleep debt recovery. Sleep has a U-shaped relationship with health consequences, including increased mortality. Sleeping too little or too long increases the risk of early death compared to those who get a healthy amount of sleep regularly. Specifically, long sleepers have a 25% increased mortality risk, while short sleepers have a 65% higher risk.

However, recent research suggests that catching up on sleep over the weekend may have a protective effect against these negative long-term health consequences. One large-scale study of over 43,000 adults found that when short sleepers sleep in on the weekends, their mortality risk lowers to the same level as healthy sleepers. In other words, sleeping late on weekends may help compensate for some of the sleep debt accumulated during the week.

However, when sleeping, it's not uncommon for some people to experience itching caused by dust mites. These tiny insects are difficult to see with the naked eye, but their bites can impact health, especially the skin. Typically, these creatures are found in beds where people sleep. According to Halodoc, dust mites can cause eczema on the skin, namely irritation, itching, and stinging. Of course, the most effective way to overcome this is to clean the mattress regularly.

Not only because of dust and insect bites, but also due to other factors such as sensitive skin to the sun, extreme temperatures, pollution, and skin that doesn't agree with cosmetics.

If you have a busy schedule, there are other steps besides cleaning the mattress. A quick way to deal with skin irritation caused by dust mites is to use skincare products. One of them is those based on Chamomile Eco. Chamomile-Eco is a standardized extract obtained in a medium of Glycerin / Water (50:50) from the flowers of "Matricaria chamomilla L.", proceeding from an organic crop.

Flavonoids, coumarins, essential oils, and polysaccharides are characteristic compounds in the chemical composition of Chamomile. It contains a minimum of 50 ppm of Apigenin-7-glucoside. Chamomile-Eco is an ECOCERT-certified, anti-irritation product used for skin soothing. It is also a skin protector and free radicals scavenger.

Here's the INCI Name of Chamomile-Eco: Glycerin (and) Water (Aqua) (and) Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (and) Potassium Sorbate (and) Sodium Benzoate.
