The Truth behind Beauty Sleep

Read on to know the beauty benefits of blissful sleep and some special nighttime tips to look your Best!

There is a reason why every princess needs her beauty sleep. And no it is not restricted to fables.When it comes to your beauty regimen, hitting the bed is the key to that fountain of youth. While the rest aides, sleep replenishes and restores body and skin, making one feel and look beautiful and confident.

Famous sleep author Arianna Huffington too made the point when she she said in a popular interview, “The term beauty sleep is so real.” In her book The Sleep Revolution, she opens up about how being well rested brought about a change in her personality and cut years from her looks, deflecting the thought of botox.

Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your health and looks in turn. The key is to get enough shut-eye.

The change can be quite visible as you begin to sleep better. You instantly get complimented for looking fresher and more youthful while you feel more energy in your bones.

Here are the some beauty benefits of getting enough rest-

1. Fewer Wrinkles
Skin makes new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging. More collagen means skin is plumper and less likely to wrinkle. Less sleep leaves skin drier, which can make lines more visible.
Only getting 5 hours a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as sleeping 7 would.

2. A Glowing Complexion
Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you snooze, which means you wake to a healthy glow. Sleep deprivation causes a decrease in blood flow to the skin surrounding your face, making you look dull.

3. Brighter, Less Puffy Eyes
Chances are, you’ve had dark circles or bags under your eyes after a night of too few Zzz’s. Sleep enough, stay well-hydrated and elevate your head with an extra pillow at night to help combat puffy eyes.

4. Healthier, Fuller Hair
Hair follicles gain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals from blood flow. Blood flow increases as you sleep better, hence nourishing your crowning glory. People who don’t sleep well end up stressed causing hormonal imbalance, that too leads to loss of hair.

5. Happier Appearance
Being short on sleep can cause the corners of your mouth to droop, making you look sadder than you do after a good night’s rest. We tend to frown and furrow more. However a person, who sleeps well, will look happier instantly.

6. Products Work Better
Your skin can focus on repairing itself while you sleep. With blood flow more consistent, your skin benefit from the flesh-repairing ingredients in your beauty products.


Some Beauty tips for bed time..

1. Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase.
The texture softens wrinkles and fine lines because it causes less friction between your skin and the pillowcase. Also silk is easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage.

2. Sleep on your back.
Speaking of wrinkles, sleeping on your back can help nip them in the bud before they even start to form. Repeated pressure on the skin, causing creasing, and eventually lead to set-in lines. A person who sleeps on one side will have more wrinkles on that particular side.

3. Use an extra pillow
If you tend to have puffy eyes in the morning, try sleeping with an extra pillow under your head.

3. Moisturize
For a fresh, dewy look in the morning, make sure to use an anti-aging night cream that contains hyaluronic acid. It attracts water into the skin, which helps smooth wrinkles.

4. Change your pillowcases often
Wash your pillowcases frequently, so you're not resting your lovely skin on top of bacteria for eight hours a night, and flip your pillow now and then before deciding to send for a wash.

5. Sleep with a humidifier on.
You probably already know that drinking tons of water is good for your skin — but since you can't do that in your sleep but ofcourse, try using a humidifier to keep yourself hydrated at night.
