There’s so much to do these days that getting enough sleep can be impossible sometimes, but we all know that getting our full amount is vital for having gorgeous skin and hair! If you find life getting in the way of your 8 hours a night, here are my top six ways to maximize your beauty sleep…
1 Fighting Damage
While you are asleep, your skin heals itself from all the damage it’s suffered during the day. Your body releases melatonin as you get into a deep slumber, and this helps your skin to regenerate and fix any damage. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, this might not be happening, and your skin will really suffer as a result. If you want gorgeous,radiant skintry searching for a face cream containing melatonin! I use Origins Night Health Bedtime Cream, which has worked miracles for my skin!
2 Ponytail No No
Fancy pulling your hair into a tightpony tailand taking a nap? Don’t do it! As your move in the night, your hair will be tugged at and damaged, and can even get ripped out. Instead, try a loose pony tail. Your hair will thank you for it, and look much healthier!
3 Take Away
Thinking of ordering a take away an hour before bed? The salt content really isn’t good for eye bags and puffiness, as salt causes your body to retain water. If you can’t resist that food, though, use an eye roller such as Garniers for fixing the damage and making your eyes look great!
4 Anti Ageing
Recent studies have shown that people who suffer from a lack of sleep age much faster then those who don’t. And they think that for best results, you should be in the ‘deep sleep’ stage by 2.30am, ready to wake up at 8am. Not going to manage it? Instead make sure you use some high qualityanti ageing products!
How many pillows do you sleep with? I have about five, but studies suggest that two flat pillows are perfect. The height is just right tohelp your skin detoxand reduce puffiness during the night.
6 Rosy Finish
During the night, your body temperature naturally rises, because blood flow to the skin is increased. This gives you a nice rosy glow when you wake up, as the sleeptakes care of your skin when you wake up. If you haven’t quite reached that stage when you have to wake up, try using a radiance peel to make you look divine!
While you can’t entirely replace sleep, with these tips, you can maximize the beauty sleep you do get, and make sure you are looking and feeling your absolute best!
