No, we use our melatonin at just the right level to reap all of its benefits without causing daytime drowsiness. Here’s how it works: Melatonin is created in various places in your body naturally, but your skin is the only place in your body that has a complete system for making, receiving, and distributing melatonin throughout your body. When you apply Mella products, the melatonin goes into the depot and waits until your body’s internal clock says it’s time to release its melatonin reserves. While the melatonin waits to be released, it goes to work on the skin, creating and delivering antioxidants to protect and repair your skin without making you drowsy. When the sun goes down, your circadian rhythm will start releasing the melatonin to help you fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly, and wake refreshed.
