The essence of beauty sleep
Beauty sleep is indeed a “thing”. It’s real. Not a myth.
Fact: when you don’t get enough sleep your face is a sure to tell your secret. The luggage under your eyes and the Zorro masks (dark circles around the eyes) are tell-tale signs you skimped on the zzzz’s.
In short lack of sleep can cause you to look like a cranky old hag. So clearly the step — the essence of beauty sleep— is to get enough of it. But here are some tips to get more bang for your buck…
Don’t sleep on your face. Think that’s silly do you? Sleeping on your face causes pressure and yields creases and lines and ultimately wrinkles on the face. And if you are apt to sleep on one side more than the other, one side will have more wrinkles. Its therefore best to sleep on your back.
Don’t be a lazy dirty birdie. Its important to wash your face before you go to bed. Cleanse all the days dirt and not allow it to set in your pores. Be sure too follow up with a moisturizer and a nightly beauty cream with hyaluronic acid that will do its duty while you sleep, repairing skin and smoothing wrinkles.
Hydrate. Use a humidifier while you sleep especially in the winter when heating will dry your skin out. It’s good practice to stay away from alcohol and salty foods too because they will dehydrate you causing your body to pull moisture from itself.
