Let's talk about the importance of sleep and having healthy skin. The New Study is In: About Your Beauty Rest. Learn how to sleep your way to clear, smooth, and healthy skin.
Your nighttime Zs do more than just help rest your mind and body. Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to skin health; not getting enough sleep actually ages your skin. A lack of sleep causes puffiness, dark circles under the eyes, visible dryness and increased wrinkling. Poor sleep also increases the likelihood of acne breakouts and the severity of immune-related skin disorders, like psoriasis and eczema.
It’s not just the amount of sleep that can affect skin health, but the quality also plays a role. While you sleep, your skin renews itself and collagen production is accelerated (more collagen = firmer skin and fewer wrinkles). If the body doesn’t go into this repair mode, damaged cells accumulate, causing the skin to age faster.
Licensed professionals like myself are here to remind you-you should aim for six to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep a night to allow the body to properly renew itself. The well-rested not only feel better but preserve their youthful glow longer!
With Christmas right around the corner, I know that sleep will likely be the last thing on your mind. Just remember... If you're not properly rested you cannot function at your best. Remember to schedule at least 6-8 hours of sleep for smooth even and healthy skin, with zero interruptions so that you will be able to function at your best.
