Sleep helps the body restore a beautiful you

There was a study conducted about how sleep affects beauty, led by John Axelsson of Sweden’s Karolinska Institute and published in the British medical journal.  Results clearly showed that sleep helps the body restore a beautiful you.

As quoted from the Huffington Post, “Our findings show that sleep-deprived people appear less healthy, less attractive and more tired compared with when they are well rested,” wrote the researchers. “This suggests that humans are sensitive to sleep-related facial cues.”

The two most noticeable areas on your skin that are affected by the amount of sleep you get are complexion and eyes.

When you sleep, your body is busy restoring itself.  Hormones are produced and distributed throughout your body.  Lack of sleep interrupts this process, leaving you with an imbalance in your hormones.  This imbalance can create oil patches, blemishes, or dry patches.  Get plenty of sleep so your body can remain balanced.

Many products work best when used at night.  Since you are staying relatively still and not exposed to the elements of daily life, applying moisturizer at night gets the best results.  If you are not sleeping enough, your moisturizer will not have the chance to work as well.  Apply moisturizer cream to hands, feet, and face each night for soft skin with a younger appearance.

When you don’t get enough sleep, usually your eyes announce it to everyone who sees you the next day.  Fluid collects in the “bags” under your eyes when you are lying down.  The fluid tends to stay under your eyes, even when you wake up.  Getting plenty of sleep allows your body time to absorb the fluid and helps shrink the bags faster after you awake.

Sleep is important to your overall mind and body health.  Plan out your sleep, like you would plan out your exercise or other daily tasks.  Get your beauty sleep every night to stay fresh, radiant, and as beautiful as possible.
