Next to a great night cream, a good night sleep is the closest thing that you can get to tapping into a fountain of youth. While you sleep, your skin repairs itself which is why it makes sense that the longer you sleep, the better your skin will look. When you’re sleep deprived your body makes more of the stress hormone, cortisol, and we all know what stress leads to… and that is wrinkles!
Experts say that if you’re getting less than six hours sleep a night, it could have a negative effect on your skin. In an effort to achieve, supple, healthy and glowing skin, try and make it a beautiful habit to get one to three more hours sleep per night and, before you know it, you’ll notice a difference!.
Here are four ways to ensure that you sleep better and maximize your skin’s health at the same time:
- Your skin loses more water when you sleep than it does during the day so always drink plenty of water during the day to help your skin stay hydrated overnight.
- Try not to wash your linen with washing powder that has a strong fragrance as it could irritate your skin.
- Don’t eat a big meal too late in the day.
- Apply a reliable night cream just before you go to bed every night.
