A good night’s sleep is exactly what your skin needs to maintain its best look and function, giving “beauty sleep” a completely new meaning.
HOW DOES SLEEP AFFECT YOUR SKIN?
Sleep is an important function which allows your body and mind to recover, and when you wake up, you need to feel rested and energised. Lack of sleep can lead to a number of problems, such as a decrease in cognitive function, slow reaction, loss of focus, mood changes, not to mention the consequences for your mental and physical health.
If you get less amount of sleep than recommended, this can not only affect your mood but also your weight, mental health, and immune system. Being subjected to UV-protection, dirt, and microorganisms all day, our skin also needs time to heal and regenerate afterwards. Without a good night’s rest, you may notice exacerbation of some skin problems, such as dark circles under the eyes, more noticeable fine lines, decrease in elasticity, and dryer, spotted face.
Being subjected to UV-protection, dirt, and microorganisms all day, our skin also needs time to heal and regenerate afterwards.
The National Sleep Foundation states that healthy adults require from seven to nine hours of sleep per day. During this time, your body, including your skin, enters the recovery mode and restores itself. Skin can heal three times faster at night, and blood circulation increases, removing toxins and replacing and creating new cells. Adults need at least seven hours of sleep every night, and you can make the most of each hour with some must-have products from ZO® for night sleep.
