Good Night’s Sleep

Why Your Skin Loves a Good Night’s Sleep

Who doesn’t love to get a good night’s sleep? Let’s talk about the amazing benefits of this free skin treatment. That’s right, sleep is great for your skin. Here’s why…

Getting enough beauty sleep isn’t a myth. During sleep, your body repairs, regenerates and rejuvenates your skin. That’s why it’s important to get enough sleep so your body can work its magic on your skin.

Sleep reduces the hormone cortisol. High cortisol levels can lead to interrupted sleep and anxiety as well as high blood pressure. The number of hours you need to sleep is usually between 7 and 8.

Getting enough sleep means you avoid:

Puffy Eyes

High cortisol levels also affect the balance of salt in your body. Lack of sleep can raise your salt levels which will create water retention which gives you puffed-up eyes. Getting plenty of sleep means you’ll wake up bright-eyed in the mornings.

Unhealthy Skin

New skin cells grow while we are sleeping. Some of the damage caused by pollution and the sun is healed during a good night’s sleep. So when we wake up our skin looks better.

Stress

Lack of sleep causes stress and stress will give you dark circles under your eyes and sallow skin. You’ll also be more prone to spot or acne breakouts. While you’re asleep your skin creates the moisture it needs to give you that lovely healthy glow.

Another way to take care of your skin is to make sure you have a good beauty routine, especially at night. Make sure before you go to bed that you’ve removed all your make-up and that you use good quality night time skin products.  

An anti-ageing cream, a vitamin A or retinol serum, or hyaluronic acid will work well at night to repair and rejuvenate your skin.

Vitamin A and retinol encourage collagen production which gives your skin volume and results in fewer wrinkles.  Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture so your skin stays hydrated. SkinBase stock 3D lifting cream which is a fantastic product that contains hyaluronic acid and helps keep moisture in. You can get it now from our online shop.
