Why is getting enough sleep so important?
Well just the same as eating healthily and exercising, getting enough RESTFUL sleep is crucial to good health and longevity throughout life. The National Sleep Foundation recommends 7-9 hours depending on your age and lifestyle. See below chart to see how much sleep you need. The number of hours you sleep will affect how you look and perform the next day
Sleep allows your entire body to rest, repair and restore energy, while simultaneously carrying out important physiological and psychological functions that directly affect your physical and mental health. So, as you drift off into a good night’s sleep, this is when your body deals with healing and repairing of damaged skin cells. Your actual heart and cardiovascular system get re-charged during sleep.
Say goodbye to dull and lifeless skin and say hello to a radiant complexion.
You will be surprised to know that just one extra hour of sleep can make a whole lot of difference in your life and your skin! It’s an integral part of your beauty regime and the key is getting enough shut-eye each night. It’s nature’s most powerful beauty treatment! Here is what happens, when you have consistent sleep deprivation your skin becomes dull, dehydrated and lifeless as it decreases blood flow to the skin surrounding your face and neck. So, enough sleep boosts blood flow efficiently to the skin and your body churns out the human growth hormone which is a critical ingredient for collagen production. All of this means, as you wake up in the morning you will have beautiful glowing skin. Take note that many of your expensive hair, face and body products seem to be more effective at night during your sleep, as they penetrate better when you rest.
I encourage you to put sleep first. Sleep well and dream like you have never dreamed before!
