Is Beauty Sleep Really a Thing?

Have you ever heard of the expression “I need my beauty sleep”?

Well according to specialists the benefit of enough sleep is remarkable. Here is why you should get enough sleep..

Less wrinkles – The skin produces new collagen when we sleep. The more collagen your body has, the more elastic your skin is and therefore less wrinkles are likely to appear. If you do not get enough sleep, your skin can become dry which may lead to premature wrinkling.

Radiant face – When we sleep the blood supply to our cells improves due to blood rushing to our face. Which is why under eye bags and dark circles may disappear when your body gets enough sleep. Dark circles and bags under your eyes are the first indication that you are not getting enough sleep. We suggest you start sleeping on a high pillow, as this reduces facial swelling which in turn will help dark under eye circles fade.

Strong hair – Hair loss as well as brittle hair can be a result of the lack of sleep. Hair follicles receive the necessary substances from our blood while we are asleep. Therefore when your blood flow worsens your hair often becomes weak which can lead to the loss of hair.

Skincare products work more efficiently – Skin cells are restored more actively at night because they are not exposed to free radicals or UV rays like they are during the day. While you sleep the blood flow in your face is well circulated which helps to extract the maximum out of useful substance in night creams and serums.

Now that you know the benefits of getting a goodnight sleep, try aim to get in at least 7-8 hours per night and soon your skin will feel and look rejuvenated.

    I really enjoy putting some oil on my skin before sleeping, it keeps my skin soft and healthy since my skin is not exposed to any sunlight. Also, getting enough sleep reduces stress and uplifts your mood, helping you to look forward to your day.

    Sleeping really helps.. 8 hours routine is important.. Every part of the body needs to rest especially the brain and eyes needs to function. So the more rest and sleeping we get we age graceful 😴😴❤️

    I am going to make sure to get in much needed sleep Definately want to prevent premature wrinkling. I have been using the tip of sleeping on a high pillow since I read that this reduces facial swelling which in turn will help dark under eye circles fade which I was experiencing. Sleep even impacts your hair wow thanks for the heads up. Great tip that skincare products work more efficiently when sleeping that makes total sense😇
