Beauty Sleep- How Quality Sleep Enhances Your Beauty

We all know sleep is essential for energy and mental clarity, and it really is also one of the best beauty boosters, hence the term "beauty sleep". Getting enough sleep can enhance your appearance and even slow signs of aging. As busy women, we don't always prioritize slumber. But making beauty sleep a priority now will pay off with better skin, healthier hair, and an overall radiant glow.

Beauty Sleep Supports Skin Health

Your nightly beauty sleep is when your skin resets and repairs itself. Sleep time is a time for cell turnover and collagen production, so skin looks firmer and more youthful. It also allows better absorption of hydrating and anti-aging skin products so aim for a minimum of 7 hours of beauty sleep nightly so your skin gets fully rejuvenated.

Hair Thrives During Beauty Sleep

The deep REM stage is vital for enhancing circulation to the scalp and promoting strong, healthy hair growth. This is why may notice dry, brittle hair or some shedding during those stressful times when you are not sleeping enough. Beauty sleep helps hair follicles grow robust and helps with nutrient absorption. To encourage lush locks, strive for uninterrupted, quality sleep at cool temperatures.

The Eyes Benefit from Beauty Sleep

Lack of sleep can make the sensitive eye area appear tired, puffy and dull. Allowing your eyes proper rest overnight improves circulation and reduces fluid buildup. You'll wake up with fresher, brighter, smoother looking eyes. Beauty sleep also curbs pesky dark under eye circles.

Beauty Sleep Aids Nail Renewal

While you sleep, circulation increases to your extremities, allowing nail beds and cuticles to repair and regenerate. Nightly beauty sleep is when nails rebuild keratin to become stronger. So again, for pretty nail growth, make sure you get adequate deep REM cycles.

Prioritizing beauty sleep is one of the simplest but most effective beauty boosters. Quality sleep allows skin restoration, hair growth, nail renewal and an overall radiant appearance. Commit to proper sleep hygiene and you'll wake up looking gorgeously refreshed and renewed!
