Prioritize a Little More Shuteye
Beauty sleep is no myth! Studies show that your body repairs itself when it rests and that includes your skin. As the body’s largest organ, your skin also happens to be one organ that is exposed to a lot of elements throughout the day. In order to recover from all the damage caused by air pollution, dirt and debris, sun exposure, and even certain indoor lighting among other factors, your skin needs some quality shuteye. While you sleep, blood circulation increases, bringing more oxygen to skin cells. This process promotes the rebuilding of collagen levels and the repair or replacement of damaged skin cells. Of course, don’t forget to cleanse your face before bed! Free radicals and clogged pores can lead to extensive damage alongside a dull, tired appearance. Optimal sleep requirements will vary for everyone, but aiming for an average eight hours and noting how improved sleep hygiene shows through a more radiant complexion can help to better determine how much beauty sleep your body needs.
