Spending quality time with friends and dancing the night away are good excuses to stay up late, but there is a reason it is called “beauty sleep” and your skin will likely show the tell-tale signs of a sleepless night the next day. Here, we break down the effects a lack of sleep has on skin and the innovative concentrates that keep your skin glowing in spite of it.
WHY IS A GOOD NIGHT’S REST SO IMPORTANT?
From makeup and sweat to pollution, our skin faces a lot through the day. At night, far away from the stresses of our busy lifestyle and the environment, our skin can take a break from actively protecting itself and go into recovery mode to regenerate cells and heal imperfections. These incredibly important twilight hours are when inflammation is reduced, damaged cells are repaired, and our skin rebalances. If you have ever noticed that your skin has a certain glow in the morning, it is due to the important recovery time that takes place while you sleep!
WHAT EFFECT DOES A LATE NIGHT HAVE ON SKIN?
When this crucial regeneration process fails to take place, it shows on our skin. Besides those dreaded dark circles we never really manage to cover with concealer, lack of sleep causes cortisol production to surge, and too much of the stress hormone leads to inflammation and dullness.
Dehydration is also common as our skin misses out on the chance to recover moisture and rebalance (especially if you have been sipping one too many fruity cocktails). The protein responsible for the elasticity and structure, collagen, can also become weakened, emphasizing fine lines and uneven texture.
Rather than attempting to get a grip on dark circles, dullness, dry skin, and blemishes after the fact, aim to bypass them altogether by introducing skin-saving concentrates to your SOS beauty routine.
