Why sleep should be no.1 in your beauty regime.

Sleep is just as important as diet but is often overlooked. It has been noted that the best time to sleep is between 10pm and 6am. In a recent article I read in ‘In the Moment’, author, Mira Manek claims that these particular hours are the most rejuvenating and as our biorhythms are programmed to follow nature’s rhythms ideally we should sleep when its dark and wake with sunrise. With our fast paced world we often look for quick ways to enhance our looks, whether its applying makeup to going to a cosmetic dentist to get that perfect smile - sometimes going back to basics is equally effective and transforming giving you that confidence boost that many of us crave.



So how can sleep impact your beauty regime? Well, its called beauty sleep for a reason! Sleep really is so important, for your health, appearance and wellbeing. Today we will give you the low down on just how important sleep is and why you might want to try and squeeze a couple of more A’s into your routine.

Anti-Aging


Those sleepless nights of the baby (and toddler!) years have certainly aged me and a contributing factor to this is functioning on four hours sleep most nights. Skin makes new collagen when you sleep which helps to prevent sagging - it’s all to do with the repair process. Wexler (a dermatologist based in New York) says that only getting 5 hours sleep can lead to twice as many fiancĂ© lines as sleeping 7 would. It can also leave our skin drier, which can make lines more visible too.

Get that glow


Whilst you sleep your body boosts blood flow which can help to add a healthy glow. Sleep deprivation can cause a decrease in blood flow which leaves you skin dull.

Bright eyes


Bags under your eyes? Dark Circles? All linked to sleep. Getting enough sleep, keeping hydrated and adding an extra pillow so your head is slightly more raised - all can help reduce those puffy eyes.

If you have trouble sleeping, keep your eyes peeled for my next post on how you can get a better nights sleep.
