Getting Your Beauty Sleep:
The studies have been numerous through the years and they have ultimately determined that when it comes to getting your beauty sleep, there's quite a bit of truth to the age-old advice. For starters, your body and skin repairs and recovers while you sleep. How? Your skin makes new collagen during sleep, which is a key part of the skin's repair process. This means your skin will be plumper and you'll see less wrinkles as too. Want to get a glowing complexion and boost your skin's natural hydration? Blood flow is increased beneath the skin while you sleep and this improves your skin's natural healthy glow and also reduces under-eye bags, circles, & puffiness as well.
Also, when a person is a tired their facial expressions change in consistent-yet subtle ways. The unfortunate results are that your eyelids and skin around your mouth sags, your eyes are puffy with dark circles, and your skin can appear paler too :( Often, this is when someone might hear that they "look tired" and that's possibly due to the fact that they have received less rest than the recommended 7-9 quality hours of sleep per night. If you're getting less than 6 hours on average a night, then it's possible it could be affecting your appearance more than you realize :0 The good new is, adding a couple of hours a sleep a night could allow you to see an improvement in your skin in as little as 2 or 3 days :) Within a couple of weeks, you will see a noticeable difference!
