Anti-Aging Series Tip 4: Sleep Your Way To Beautiful Skin

Beauty Sleep Benefits

There really is something to be said for the “Get Your Beauty Rest” statement. Several sources indicate that between 7-9 hours of restful sleep is needed to help your skin rejuvenate each day. Sleep is when some of the most important internal recoveries can happen. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you are sleeping, and that can lead to a long list of benefits for your skin and your overall look.

YIKES! Researchers say that one night of poor sleep can cause:

  • Hanging eyelids

  • Swollen eyes

  • Darker undereye circles

  • Paler skin

  • More wrinkles and fine lines

  • More droopy corners of the mouth

A 2017 study found that two days of sleep restriction negatively affected participant’s perceived attractiveness, health, sleepiness, and trustworthiness.

The benefits of a good nights sleep are endless but some of our favorites are:

  • Glowing complexion

  • Fewer wrinkles

  • Brighter, less puffy eyes

  • Happy and healthier appearance

  • Healthier hair

  • Your skincare products will work better

Tips for the best sleep:

  • Step 1, get a full nights sleep (7-9 hours) :-)

  • Wash your face before sleeping

  • Use a moisturizer each night before bed

  • Keep a glass of water by your bed

  • Sleep on your back

  • Use a special soft (silk) pillowcase

  • Elevate your head while you sleep

  • Stay away from sun while you snooze

Keep this in mind: In 2019, the skin care industry will see an estimated $130 billion dollars of global sales, in the form of lotions, fillers, serums, and scrubs. But while we often spend a lot of our time layering and lasering our skin, paying attention to how we treat our skin during sleeping hours shouldn’t be overlooked.
