A lack of adequate sleep can cause stress, dark circles and aggravate existing skin conditions including acne and eczema.
It’s a fact that when you're tired… you look tired. A lack of adequate sleep can cause stress, dark circles and aggravate existing skin conditions including acne and eczema. When it comes to looking your best, products and services are absolutely essential, but adequate sleep helps to tie it all together to help you look and feel your best.
The skin works to protect itself during the day and repair itself at night. As we sleep, skin repair and revival processes rev up to assist with tissue repair and regeneration. Sleep deprivation suppresses the immune system and other functions greatly reducing the efficacy of these processes.
Here are 4 quick tips for bedtime to help your skin look fresh and rested when you wake in the morning:
Get a routine. Be sure to cleanse your skin nightly followed by a moisturizer at the very least.
Start your routine earlier in the evening. The natural repair processes of the skin begin in the evening so you want to be sure to cleanse and apply your nighttime products earlier before the Netflix coma sets in. I tend to get lazier the longer I’ve been home, so I try to start my routine sooner than later to ensure that it get's done.
Change your pillowcases frequently. Bacteria, oil and hair products can be reintroduced to the skin and cause breakouts.
Get some sleep.
