We’ve all heard the term “Beauty Sleep” and it’s true, the fountain of youth is found in good quality sleep.
Sleep is perhaps the most important part of a beauty routine. The body recovers and skin cells repair during sleep, hence why inadequate or disturbed sleep affects not only our appearance but also our sense of physical and emotional wellbeing.
When we feel tired, or haven’t been achieving the recommended seven to nine hours a night, our blood does not flow efficiently. A good night’s rest allows the blood supply to bring oxygen to skin cells, enhancing skins health and radiance. As we sleep our bodies releases human growth hormone, which is necessary for collagen production. This rise in growth hormones also allows damaged cells to repair properly.
In fact, our skin is dependant on ‘enough’ sleep for it to function at optimal health. When our bodies are sleep deprived, the stress hormone cortisol elevates which increases stress and inflammation in the body, that often makes an appearance through our skin. Inflammation breaks down collagen in the body, which accelerates the ageing process and often leads to breakouts. A good night’s sleep helps to clear the skin and reduce irritations such as skin conditions.
Whilst we sleep, the body’s hydration rebalances, skin is able to recover moisture and excess water in the body is processed for removal. Poor sleep is a major cause into fluid imbalances, such as water retention, puffy eyes and skin dryness. The rehydration that occurs during good quality sleep make fine lines and wrinkles less visible, and assists the skin to increase moisture levels which gives us a plump and firm looking complexion.
Vida Glow’s Beauty Sleep is created with key ingredients that work together to calm the body, allowing you to drift off to a natural sleep cycle, leading to a deep, relaxed sleep without causing drowsiness. Achieving the deep stage of sleep is key to beauty, this is when hormones aid in cell and tissue repair, as well as making new collagen, the protein that keeps skin strong and elastic. Deep sleep is also where blood flow peaks, feeding and oxygenating skin cells, this is where the magic happens!
