THE BENEFITS OF SLEEP ON YOUR SKIN

LES BIENFAITS DU SOMMEIL SUR VOTRE PEAU

Since all your favorite influencers practice Miracle Morning - getting up at 5 a.m. to meditate/read/run... - do you feel guilty about lazing around in bed and letting the alarm ring at least five times before opening your eyes? We'll stop you right away: taking the time to get enough sleep should NEVER lead to guilt. First, because we don't all have the same pace of life, and some people simply need more hours of sleep. Maybe that girl who does sun salutations at dawn also takes naps in the afternoon, something that is absolutely impossible for you because your job doesn't allow it... Then tell yourself that when you pass a little more time under the duvet, you pamper your body, starting with your skin. Yes, sleep and skin are closely linked, and the quality of one greatly influences that of the other. So you have no regrets if you like to sleep, quite the contrary!

😴 The effects of sleep on the skin

The adult body needs a certain number of hours of sleep, between 7 and 9 on average per night. It's the perfect rest timing to boost the brain, the muscles, the immune system, the mood... but also the skin which takes advantage of this time off to regain its beauty.

The skin cycle and regeneration

During the night, the skin can finally breathe. In fact, this is the only period during which it does not suffer any aggression. No pollution, no cigarette break, no sun, wind, cold or stress: the skin can lower its guard and put its protective mechanisms on standby . But be careful, she is not idle! The skin still continues to work, but on a completely different task: its regeneration. It is between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., during the deep sleep phase, that the machine works hardest. During this period of the circadian rhythm, skin cells are actively repaired and renewed.

🌙 The benefits of restful sleep for the skin

So you will have understood: sleep is the most natural (and most effective) beauty tip there is. To maximize its effects, a good beauty sleep routine is essential! This starts with proper makeup removal because only on a clean surface can the skin regenerate properly. Even if you haven't applied foundation or mascara all day, cleansing with suitable products is necessary to remove any traces of sebum, pollution or dust that prevent proper cell renewal. Once the epidermis is completely fresh, the application of a serum and a cream chosen according to the needs of your skin is particularly recommended because the skin is even more receptive to cosmetic care during the night. Good sleep + a good routine = the winning combination to reap maximum beauty benefits!

Reduction of dark circles

Thin and fragile area, the eye marks easily, especially when the night has been too short or disturbed. A good night's sleep is the best tip for saying goodbye to tired eyes because the appearance of dark circles and bags is generally caused by poor blood circulation and a disruption of lymphatic drainage. And it is when we sleep that blood circulation and lymphatic drainage are most effective. Which also ensures a nice glow to the face!

Wrinkle reduction

Thanks to collagen and elastin, these two key proteins that help maintain the firmness, elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Their production being boosted during the night, a good night's sleep ensures a plump epidermis when you wake up.

Better hydration and a fresh complexion

During sleep, the skin also regulates its hydration level. By getting enough sleep, you allow your skin to retain its natural moisture, which helps reduce the appearance of signs of aging and makes your face look more radiant.

🧐 The consequences of a lack of sleep on the skin

When you don't get enough sleep or your sleep is broken, the skin finds itself... in trouble! It is proven and proven, skin that is used to sleeping poorly is skin that automatically appears gray when waking up: the features are wrinkled, the complexion is dull, the skin relief is irregular... In short, everything that we fear.


Acceleration of skin aging

Until a few years ago, you were able to go out until the end of the night and continue a day of work incognito, without any colleague throwing this highly unpleasant sentence at you: “ Oulala, you really need vacation you!”. But as they say, that was before... Today, your drawn features betray you at the first step into the open space. Such is life: the older we get, the more our skin takes the hit and suffers the full force of lack of sleep. Nights that are too short are no longer forgiving, and insomnia doesn't help anything because insomnia means increased stress and increased cortisol. This hormone induces a more sustained secretion of free radicals, which are responsible for premature aging of the skin. To avoid tossing and turning in bed, establishing a good sleep routine is crucial. Maintain a regular sleep schedule, avoid stimulants from the end of the afternoon, limit exposure to screens, practice relaxing activities before sleeping, create an environment conducive to sleep with a dark, cool and quiet bedroom... . All these reflexes are really worth adopting!

Increased skin problems

Beyond wrinkles and other signs of skin aging, high levels of cortisol can also promote sebum production, clogged pores and the appearance of acne. Without forgetting that lack of sleep is likely to compromise the skin's immune system: the skin becomes more vulnerable to bacterial infections and this opens the door to imperfections and spots galore. Immune dysfunction can also cause excessive inflammatory responses in the skin, aggravating the symptoms of eczema or psoriasis, for example.
