Sleeping Beauty

Why is sleep good for your skin?


A good night’s sleep means a lot to your skin. While you sleep your body enters a “repair” state. Lack of sleep can result in a number of skin issues, especially if we are talking about accumulated sleep deprivation. Saggy and dull skin, puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines are only a few of the things you see in the mirror after a late night.

Poor sleep imposes a lot of stress on your body and skin. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body produces higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, which is associated with inflammatory skin conditions and elevated sebum excretion leading to more breakouts, while in the long run it has been associated with more serious health problems.

The aging process can be accelerated because of lack of sleep. Your skin repairs itself during sleep. It generates collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin which keep your skin young and plump. Also, the water balance is being reinstated in your organism during sleep. Not getting enough sleep can leave you with dry, dehydrated skin, puffy eyes and more visible wrinkles. 

So sleep well and your skin will thank you for that. The benefits of sleep not only concern your skin but also your overall well being, namely, your weight, your mind and your heart. But for these days, when you just can’t get enough sleep, we are here for you. An anti-wrinkle eye serum can help you get rid of dark circles and reduce puffiness.
