How sleep affects the look of your skin
Sleep is absolutely essential to looking your best. This is the time when your body builds up energy reserves and regenerates cells and tissues. As you rest, your skin is also rejuvenated, becoming smoother, firmer, and brighter with every relaxed breath.
Rest Is Best
Many consider sleep a low priority among our various daily activities. It is estimated that the world’s population has one hour less of sleep per night than is needed. Despite this view of nighttime rest, sleep is a necessary, sophisticated process regulated by the brain. So keep your skin looking refreshed by getting enough sleep. Plus use skin care products formulated for night time, like Revitalift® Night Cream. These work while you rest to increase cell turnover, reduce wrinkles, and firm skin.
Tired of Not Sleeping?
Short-term sleep deprivation causes little physical harm because the body compensates for lack of sleep by increasing its adrenaline levels during the day. The body also attempts to get more sleep at a later time. But complications from chronic sleep deprivation can include premature aging, fatigue, obesity, and chronic memory loss, plus increased risk for diabetes, infection, cardiovascular disease, and gastrointestinal disease. Doctors recommend, on average, eight hours of sleep to ensure a good night’s rest and to look and feel your best.
