World Sleep Day – Benefits of Sleep for the Skin

It’s World Sleep Day and there is no denying how important sleep is for our skin.

 


BEAUTY SLEEP

Yes beauty sleep is a real thing! Whatever your skincare regime, nothing is effective without a solid 7-9 hours of sleep each night. A good night’s sleep can make or break your day, but its importance goes way beyond that. It is a key part of a healthy lifestyle.

Quality sleep is crucial for good health and quality of life. Your skin needs sleep to heal itself from the day’s damage. Not getting enough causes dark circles, sagging eyelids and paler skin. Getting the right amount of sleep leaves our complexion glowing.

Here are some benefits of getting the right amount of sleep:

  • You’ll look and feel happier and healthier
  • Skincare products are more effective when you sleep
  • Getting your beauty sleep minimises dark circles and puffy eyes
  • Lack of sleep can cause hair loss, damage and lack of growth due to poor blood flow
  • Sleep deprivation affects the production of collagen. This results in wrinkles and a loss of elasticity
  • Bad sleep makes you feel hungrier the next day – insufficient sleep is linked to obesity.
  • Chronic bad sleep can make you look older than you are.

How can we achieve good sleep?

Exercise during the day

Getting your adrenalin pumping earlier in the day can lead to better sleep. Try to always put time aside to go for a run or hit the gym.

Establish a regular bedtime

To improve mood, memory and concentration it is important to go to bed at roughly the same time every night. 

Optimise Your Bedroom Environment for World Sleep Day

Make sure your bedroom is the right temperature – cool enough to sleep – and remove light and noise pollution.

Turn off electronics

Blue light suppresses melatonin (the chemical that helps you sleep). Try to stay off all devices for at least 30 minutes before bedtime. 

Drink something warm

An hour before bed make a warm drink. Nothing caffeinated. Chamomile tea or milk can promote relaxation.

Remember this World Sleep Day that consistency is key. Healthy habits will deliver lifelong benefits and keep your skin in tiptop condition.
