What Are the Benefits of Beauty Sleep?
Faster healing skin
During the night, your skin makes use of the hours to heal itself from all of the hard work during the day.
The moment you drift off to dreamland, your skin begins to rejuvenate. That is why you will look much fresher after a good night’s sleep.
The better you slept the night before, the clearer and cleaner your skin will be.
One of the main causes for blackheads and pimples is stress. This is true even for adults.
One of the reasons your eyes shine are after they’ve had a good night’s sleep.
While dark under-eye circles may run in families, they will still look darker if your aren’t getting your sleep.
Beauty tip: use a little bit of eye cream as a primer and add a small bit of concealer just a shade or two lighter than your skin tone and voila!
Even skin tone
After a long night out or a long airplane journey, your skin may look more pale or even blotchy. That’s because your beauty sleep ensures optimal and healthy blood flow to your skin.
You will look fabulous
We are able to build a tolerance to sleep deprivation. While we might feel fine, it will become very visible to others around us.
Swedish researchers asked a group of people to take a look at pictures of sleep deprived people and those that had a good night’s sleep.
They were easily able to tell the difference. In fact, those that had enough sleep were identified as looking less tired, healthier, and generally more attractive.
Say goodbye to puffiness
Who doesn’t hate waking up with puffy eyes?
It happens because liquid collects around your eyes when you lie flat in bed.
Beauty Tip: Make sure that your head is located higher than your heart during the night. Do so by placing a couple of pillows under your head.
If that still doesn’t work, simply place a cold cloth on your eyes for a few minutes in the morning.
