3 Beauty Sleep Essentials
1. Get a Good Nights Rest
Sounds pretty basic right? But did you know that when you do not get the proper amount of sleep it’s more than your body that feels and looks tired. It seeps into your skin, under your eyes and into your pores. Sleeping 7 to 9 hours a night allows your skin the opportunity to produce new collagen and repair itself. I did some research on this topic prior to diving in and also found that sleep deprivation causes a decrease in blood flow to this skin surrounding your face, as our bodies boost blood flow to the skin while we sleep. Goodbye gorgeous glow, and hello dull skin. We don’t want now do we? Go to sleep!
2. Sleep On Your Back
When you think about the friction your face encounters while sleeping on your stomach, it is no wonder that sleeping on your back is essential for beauty sleep. It helps reduce wrinkles and maintains the youthful appearance of your skin. It also keeps those creams and serums we spend so much money on, more on your face and less on the pillowcase. While sleeping on your back certainly isn’t for everyone, here are a few pillows that might make it a bit more comfortable for you.
