Beauty Or The Beast? Making Sure Beauty Sleep Works For You

We’ve all heard of beauty sleep, right? Most of us have even
used it as an excuse to get an early night now and again. But, did you know
that sleeping actually does a lot for the appearance of your skin? Melvin
Elson, MD, a clinical professor of dermatology at Vanderbilt School of Nursing
says, “Hormonal changes boost blood flow to the skin, brightening it
overnight.’. So, next time you want an early night, you have science backing
you.
But, beauty sleep may not be the miraculous cure we all hope
for. In fact, if you fail to put any effort in, sleep may have the opposite
effect. So, we’re going to look at a few of the things you should do to make
sure sleep leaves your skin glowing.
GO TO SLEEP CLEAN!
Not that we’re calling you dirty, of course. But, your face
might be. If you don’t perfect a bedtime skincare routine, you may go to bed
with dirt in your pores. For obvious reasons, that’s the last thing you want to
do. Sleeping with clogged pores can do more damage than good. Dirt will cause
breakouts galore on your unsuspecting skin! And, things get even worse if you
forget to remove your makeup. We’ve all been there. You’re tired; you just want
to fall into bed. Your makeup can wait until the morning, right? Wrong!
It’s imperative you take the time to remove your makeup and
wash your face with a hot flannel before bed. Makeup removal will clean your
pores, while the warm cloth will open them up. Then, they’ll be ready for the
full benefits of their night’s rest!
MIRACLE WORKERS 
Sleep may be fantastic for your skin, but you can always
give it a helping hand. After your wash routine, make sure to moisturize your
face. Dehydrated skin never looks good. And, few of us drink a decent amount
overnight. So, let moisturization take care of that aspect for you.
  
It’s also worth investing in night specific facial products.
Something like these Bio complete serum products from Sente Labs will get to
work giving you firmer and smoother skin for the morning. There are night
products out there for a host of different skin types. Don’t be afraid to get
stuck in and find the perfect thing. As you’ve already cleaned and opened your
pores, you’re sure to get the full benefits of products like these.
  
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
As much as sleep can help your skin, too little sleep can
hinder it. Anyone who’s pulled a few all-nighters can bear testimony to this
one. Not sleeping leaves your skin looking as tired as you feel. It will, after
all, have missed out on those crucial hours of rejuvenation. Plus, dark circles
never helped anyone. Solve these issues by ensuring you get enough sleep each
night. 8 hours is the recommended amount, and you should aim for that every
night. Don’t look so disappointed. It’s a small price to pay for amazing skin.
