Sleeping Beauty: How Sleep Benefits Your Skin
The quality of sleep matters.
Skincare, when we think of this word, we naturally consider having high quality products as being the most crucial part of our routine. But it’s not only that. Your skin's condition can also be a result of your lifestyle.
Among all the lifestyle advice on the internet, we found that getting enough sleep, and it's quality is what matters the most.
During our sleep, the human body works fully on recovering. The next morning when you wake up feeling restless, it's because your sleep quality probably wasn’t great and your body still needs to recover. This may even lead to breakouts on your skin.
“Sleep services all aspects of our body in one way or another: molecular, energy balance, as well as intellectual function, alertness and mood." “Loss of sleep impairs your higher levels of reasoning, problem-solving and attention to detail,” - Dr Merrill Mitler, a sleep expert and neuroscientist at NIH. - The Benefits of Slumber Why You Need a Good Night’s Sleep
“Sleep affects almost every tissue in our bodies. It affects growth and stress hormones, our immune system, appetite, breathing, blood pressure and cardiovascular health.”- Dr Michael Twery, a sleep expert at NIH. - The Benefits of Slumber Why You Need a Good Night’s Sleep
To get the most benefits from sleep is to have a stable night routine to support your relaxation. But how do you create a night routine?
Don’t worry, we are here for you!
A simple piece of advice is to create take time for yourself before bed. Setting aside 30 minutes before bedtime is shown to help improve the quality of your sleep.
What we recommend is trying meditation, reading a book, listening to music, lighting a candle, or drinking some herbal tea.
Avoid any caffeine-contained snacks or drinks, and try to make yourself feel the most relaxed and peaceful.
Another way to take some time for self care is you nightly skincare routine.
While we encourage a minimalistic skincare routine, we’d like to acknowledge that, the benefits of skincare change depend on WHEN.
For example, if you apply vitamin C serum in the morning, your skin will glow, and blight. But if you use it at night, it will help your skin absorb the vitamins to recover your breakouts.
When and what products you use matters.
"First and foremost, you should understand that sleep is the time when your body repairs itself. This is true for your epidermis as much as it is for your brain or muscles.
During sleep, your skin’s blood flow increases, and the organ rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles and age spots."
"Washing your face can dry it out, and sleeping can also dehydrate skin, especially if you snooze in a low-humidity environment. While staying hydrated by drinking water can help to some extent, what your skin really needs at night is a topical moisturizer."- Beauty Sleep: Is it real?, HealthLine
