Sleep + Beauty

It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason…

People who get adequate sleep appear more healthy and attractive than sleep-deprived individuals. The idea of “beauty sleep” isn’t new, but it is becoming harder to achieve in our modern world with constant electronics, phones, and long work days. A 2010 study published in the British Medical Journal found that people who had a full night of sleep (8 hours or more) versus sleep-deprived individuals (31 hours of wakefulness after a night of reduced sleep) were rated by observers as healthier and less tired, but also as more attractive. And while visible signs of sleeplessness like dark circles and dull skin are obvious, there’s even more damage below the surface, say skin care experts.

Try ditching the expensive creams for sleep instead. Lack of sleep can make your skin more sensitive, since it can lead to dryness and increased irritability. Give your skin time to repair in bed!
