Sleep is very important for the skin, but often we do not have enough or it is inadequate, which manifests itself in the appearance of the skin. When we do not sleep enough, our body lights more cortisol – hormones of stress. Increased level of cortisol, in addition to stress, stimulates inflammatory processes in the body, which also affects the quality of our skin. It is therefore necessary to sleep enough. But what if it is not always possible?
Your skin needs recovery time!
Do you think you have too much work every day? And even your skin has more work than you do. While there is a protective function during the day, it is cleaned from harmful substances during the night and is renewed. This means that while you rest, your body works well. Sleep is the right time for the body to send fresh cells to the epidermis and replace the old and damaged cells. In the period, which we call deep sleep, occurs cellular differentiation and reorganization, cellular barrier renewal, acceleration of microcirculation and increase of peeling.Whether we want it or not, the lack of sleep and its poor quality leave the effect on the appearance of our skin that we notice every morning when we look at the mirror.
Here are some reasons why insufficient sleep influences on quality of your skin and health in general:
1. Insufficient sleep worsens existing skin problems.
Inflammation process that occur due to lack of sleep result in acne, increased skin sensitivity, increased allergic reactions and dermatitis irritation – and more serious skin conditions require more care for skin.
2. Insufficient sleep absorbs the natural beauty of your skin.
Increased inflammatory processes in the body lead to a lack of collagen and hyaluronic acid, molecules that give the skin glow, tonus and freshness. As you sleep, your body is hydrated, the skin returns humidity while the excess water is ready to be removed from the body. Insufficient sleep for the result has a bad balance of water that causes the underbites and bloating under the eyes, a greater dryness of the skin and more visible wrinkles.
3. Insufficient sleep speeds up the aging process.
During the deep sleep phase, enhancement of the growth hormone allows the damaged cells to restore. Without a deep sleep phase, this will not happen, which will prevent the reconstruction process. As a result, signs of aging are more visible.
You can’t fall asleep? Try these tricks.
Good sleep habits can help you regain the glow of your skin. If you have problems sleeping even when you are in bed, your thoughts are stunted, try to exercise in the evening or do yoga. This will help you turn off your brain and forget about work and obligations a bit. You can relax with the addition of some eteric oil to your bathing (chamomile oil, sandalwood etc.) and sleep on pure cotton because synthetic fibers keep heat, sweat and dirt. If you are struggling with eyebags, just add another pillow under your head to make it more exalted. This will reduce the retention of fluid in the area around the eyes.
