Your Sleep Habits Can Affect Your Skin

Your Sleep Habits Can Affect Your Skin

Beauty sleep isn’t a facade, it truly is the closest you’ll get to a fountain of youth. Your sleeping habits have a profound impact on the quality of your skin and premature aging. Getting a good night’s sleep should be a key component of your skincare routine and here’s why:

  • Lack of sleep causes your skin to age and produces a dull complexion

While there are many causes for damaged skin, insufficient sleep ranks highly as one of the most impactful reasons. A night or two without proper sleep drastically affects your appearance, resulting in drier skin, stripping you of your ‘glow’ and leaving you with puffy eyes and dull circles under your eyes.  

  • Sleep deprivation spikes cortisol production.

An rise in the stress hormone, cortisol, results in an increase in inflammation of the body, leading to breakouts and skin irritation. It can also heighten the breakdown of collagen; a crucial component for the skin’s elasticity. 

  • Insufficient sleep reduces the production of your growth hormones. 

Growth hormones are integral to the repair of damaged cells. Availability in poor levels weakens the skin’s ability to heal and restore itself. As a result, one may develop uneven skin tone and increasing fine lines. 

  • Poor sleep contributes to dehydration. 

Even minor sleep deprivation leads to dry skin and pH imbalance. This triggers an inflammatory response, heightening redness due to dilated blood vessels. This results in increased puffiness and breakouts.

To incorporate better sleep and have better skin, try these tips:

  • Keep the room temperature cool
  • Make the room as dark as possible
  • Keep hydrated throughout the day
  • Remove any device out of the room
  • Avoid eating a heavy meal before bedtime
  • Refrain from using electronics 1 hour before bed
