Things You Didn’t Know That are Affecting your Skin: Sleep

Don't overlook the benefits of sleep for healthy, vibrant skin! When you are not getting enough good sleep, the aging process will accelerate, which leads to dehydrated, dull skin with an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Are you losing sleep at night? Let's talk about how sleep and skin health are linked and how to improve your sleeping patterns for better skin.  

Under-Eye Circles and Puffiness

Dark under eyes are a known effect when not getting enough sleep. It's called beauty sleep for a reason. While you are sleeping, your body cells are regenerating, especially your skin cells. Giving yourself enough rest allows the body to renew and regenerate. Last night was a rough one, and you want to hide the evidence? Apply a small amount of eye cream according to your skin concerns.

Increases Cellular Repair

Our skin is combatting bacterias, toxins that enter the body, and environmental stressors during the day. At night, skin switches from being on guard to being on defense into a period of intense regeneration where it begins to repair itself by shedding old cells on the dermis and replacing them with new, fresh skin cells. Although most of your skin's work is happening during the night, cellular turnover does happen during the day. The process is faster at night and is known to peak at 11 pm, and 4 am.

Yes, cellular turnover does happen during the day. However, skin cells regenerate faster at night, and its peak during the hours of 11 pm and 4 am. 

Sleep Encourages Growth Hormone Production and Collagen

Restless nights can affect the skin, which shows your sleep quality is just as important as the quantity. An uncomfortable, 8-hour sleep won't deliver the same benefits as eight undisturbed hours where you enter the deep sleep. When you have entered, a deep sleep growth hormone production starts going to work. The growth hormone essential because it is a peptide hormone that stimulates cell reproduction, cell regeneration, and growth.

When there is a decrease in growth hormone production, collagen may start to break down. Lack of collagen then leads to skin losing its firmness and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Hydration Levels Are Affected

Healthy functional skin requires hydration. Your body's hydration levels become impacted by the amount of deep sleep you get at night. When skin lacks hydration, it becomes more prone to eczema, dry skin, psoriasis, and even premature aging. The elimination of toxins becomes difficult with dehydrated skin, which also causes problems for your skin.

Beauty Sleep Enhanced


Having the right product prep your skin for bed makes all the difference in your skin. We listed a nighttime skincare routine to follow for healthy glowing skin.

Double-Cleanse

Step one is essential. Skipping a good cleanse before bed is a no-no. Double cleansing guarantees the removal of all the makeup, sunscreen, and debris. Be sure to use your regular cleanser first. Starting with a clean canvas allows the skin products to absorb into the skin.
