Sleep is essential for good health – we all know that. But, did you know that getting a good night’s sleep is great for your skin?
Yes! Having at least 8 hours sleep each night will not only set you up for the day ahead, it’ll also ensure your skin is glowing. So, how does sleep have a positive impact on your complexion?
It fights inflammation
Sleep is a natural anti-inflammatory, thus, helping to fight the inflammation that causes spots, sensitive skin and skin diseases related to immunity. Furthermore, collagen starts to break down when the skin is inflamed, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. To get the maximum benefits for your skin, it’s best to develop a good morning and evening skincare routine to really aid the health of your complexion.
It’s a natural moisturiser
Getting a good night’s sleep helps to rebalance your body’s hydration levels, helping to improve your complexion’s natural moisture – perfect for getting plumped skin.
It improves blood flow
Sleep boosts the blood flow to your skin, helping to repair it and promote a naturally luminous complexion.
It helps the ageing process
When you sleep, the increase in growth hormones helps to heal damaged skin cells. This results in less visible signs of ageing and a youthful looking complexion.
It improves your eyes
We all know that a lack of sleep contributes to dark circles and puffy eyes. When your eyes look fresh, your overall appearance tends to look brighter, healthier and more radiant.
It relieves stress
Stress is a factor in promoting early signs of ageing. A good night’s sleep helps to relieve stress, allowing the skin to regenerate and appear luminous.
