Sleep is often the first victim of lack of time. With our current lifestyles, we don't always manage to do everything we want in a day and, in general, the first to suffer is our sleep. However, it coordinates a multitude of benefits for the body and the mind. You will understand, if you want beautiful skin, even if you use a complete routine with quality products (like ours ;) ), you will have to sleep a little more.
In addition to unsightly dark circles, the risk of making nights too short or sleeplessness are: dull complexion, pimples and loss of elasticity of the skin (it will thus appear older).
But why does sleep have such an important impact on it?
First of all, it is important to know that the skin follows a circadian chronobiology. This means that for 24 hours, it will have different actions and functions. Indeed, skin cells change their behavior depending on the brightness they can detect.
During the day, your skin will protect the epidermis from external aggressions. To do this, the cells tighten and are smaller. This action makes the skin waterproof and limits its loss of hydration and the negative effects of these attacks.
Once night falls, the skin lays down its arms and reconstitutes itself so that it can play its role effectively the next day. Thanks to an increase in the rate of blood and lymphatic circulation and an increase in cell multiplication, she will have the energy necessary to replace the cells in direct contact with the external elements which died during the day with new cells. The skin regenerates. The evening is the ideal time to apply care to your skin. This is when its hydrolipid barrier, this famous shield that protects you during the day, is the weakest and the epidermis opens. It then becomes receptive to the active ingredients present in cosmetics.
When an individual has a bad night's sleep or doesn't get enough sleep, their body is not given the opportunity to do their job. Blood and lymphatic tissue circulate more slowly. This poor circulation results in the appearance of a colored ring and puffiness appears due to water retention under the eyes. Cell renewal is more difficult. This will make it harder for your skin to play its protective role during the day and will be more sensitive to external aggressions. For example, cold and wind can cause skin dryness and dehydration. All these attacks (wind, cold, atmospheric pollution, UV, blue light, limestone, etc.) contribute to the aging of the epidermis. As the skin is less efficient at doing its job, there is going to be an accumulation of dead cells which will be, in part, responsible for the lack of radiance of your complexion.
So that your skin is ready to respond to its protective function. It is recommended to sleep between 7h and 9h for a young adult or an adult. However, we do not all have the same needs. Some will feel rested after having slept 6 hours and others will still be tired after a night of 9h. The most important thing is to find the number of hours that is right for you so that you feel rested when you wake up. It is also preferable to keep the same bedtime and the same time for waking up, because having a regular rhythm will ensure a certain stability for your body and will help it to respond effectively to its needs.
Even if it will never replace a good night's sleep, cosmetics remain a good support to ensure your skin in its daily tasks and can accompany it in some of its functions.
