Five Fabulous Reasons to Get Your Beauty Sleep Each Night

Do you work hard to take care of yourself? Eat right, exercise, use the right kind of skincare products… Even if you do all these things daily, skimping on the beauty rest could cause more harm to your body than you think. Sleep is critical to good health – inside and out. And with daylight savings just around the corner, it may be tempting to stay up later. However, you should aim for at least seven to nine hours of sleep each night and here’s five fabulous reasons why:

Your Complexion Will Glow

While you are sleeping your blood is flowing throughout your skin. A good night’s rest can result in a beautiful, glowing complexion in the morning. However, when you don’t get enough sleep, the blood flow in your skin is restricted, leaving you with a dull, lifeless appearance.

Your Eyes Will Sparkle

It is easy to tell by someone’s eyes whether they had a good night’s sleep. If you are well-rested, your eyes are bright and beautiful. But if you stayed up past your bedtime, you can expect to have puffy bags or dark circles the next morning. Yes, makeup can mask some of the puffiness, but wouldn’t it be better to wake up to naturally sparkling eyes?

You Will Have Fewer Wrinkles

Did you know that routinely sleeping less than five hours a night can nearly double your fine lines and wrinkles? When you are sleeping, your skin is repairing itself by creating new collagen. New collagen refreshes your skin keeping it plump and supple. Lack of sleep limits the amount of time that your skin has each night to repair itself, leaving it dry and thin. This creates more wrinkles and makes the ones you have more visible.

Your Skincare Products Work Better

When you get a full night’s rest, you can also maximize the effectiveness of your skincare products. While you are sleeping, your skin is naturally repairing itself. Using high-quality skincare products like Signature Skin’s Revitalizing Moisturizer before bed can maximize its benefits on your skin by increasing the amount of collagen production and adding moisture back so that you wake up with a refreshed and healthy complexion.

You Will Look Happier

Plenty of rest renews and restores your body so that you look and feel better in the morning. How you feel on the inside is often reflected in your appearance. When you lack sleep, your eyes may sag or look droopy. You may frown more or look sad, angry or tired. However, when you are well-rested, your facial expressions will show it and you will look much happier and healthier.

So, as you move your clocks forward an hour for daylight savings, don’t skimp on the sleep - even if it feels too early to go to bed. Make it a priority to get your beauty rest each night and eventually your body will adjust to the time change.
