Evaluate how much sleep you’re getting, and how a lack of sleep can affect your health
Some days I have a terrible, sleepless night, tossing and turning, and waking up every hour. When I finally got up in the morning, exhausted, I looked in the mirror only to find a dull skin tone, sunken face, and dark, puffy bags under my eyes. I’m sure you’ve all had a similar experience.
Even if you are using the best skincare products, it means nothing without a good night’s rest.
Lack of sleep can result in more than a dull complexion. A recent study has shown that chronic sleep deprivation can be linked to larger skin concerns including increased signs of aging, slower recovery from environmental stressors, and disruption of the skin barrier (which is what protects from things like UV radiation).
If you aren’t consistently sleeping well, then you have more to worry about than a lackluster skin tone the next day. You’re going to experience accelerated signs of aging including fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and reduced skin elasticity. And it’s going to be a slower process to repair any damage done to the skin.
If you want to fight the signs of aging full force, then you need to add beauty sleep to your daily routine. It’s that simple.
