We’re all told that the optimum amount of hour’s sleep we should be getting is 8 hours. This is not a myth, especially where our skin is involved. The optimum amount of sleep is 7 to 8 hours; any more than that will leave us looking puffy. Getting enough sleep is fundamental to the vitality of the skin and it can make a huge difference. Not enough sleep can cause ageing and breakouts.
If you don’t get enough sleep, stress can manifest. You may be tired and groggy the next day, thus the cycle of stress continues which can have adverse effects on your skin. When you become stressed, the body releases the stress hormone cortisol, which can increase the amount of sebum (oil production) in the skin meaning that spots can develop. If you are finding this an issue, then the Ground Control Anti Blemish Tonic helps to neutralise stressed out skin by reducing inflammation and the production of excess oils.
Getting enough sleep is essential for detoxifying the skin, as when you sleep the skin clears out anything that could lead to spots such as congestion and bacteria.
Deep sleep means the process of oxygenation is able to occur. When this process occurs, the skin is able to repair itself through being fed nutrients and oxygen. Not getting enough sleep will make the skin appear aged and dull. You can lose about 25% of water during your sleep, compared to the day, so protect the moisture loss with the Celestial Black Diamond Night Cream.
The type of sleep you get is also important to; if you’re sleep is disturbed, your skin will be less likely to repair itself as you have to be in a deep sleep for the skin to regenerate. Apply the Y Theorem Repair Serum at night to aid the skin’s repair processes while you sleep. The anti-ageing serum supports cell regeneration and healing, resulting in more moisturised and voluminous skin.
