Why sleep is good for your skin

We all know that sleep is vital to our survival as humans, it improves our memory, curbs inflammation, improves your overall perfomance and more.

 

But the one thing sleep does for us is it plays a role in the health of our skin.

Sleep is like a natural moisturiser: While you sleep, your body re-balances your moisture levels. This means it takes care of skin hydration, which is so important for good skin health in winter, and gives you plumper, more nourished skin when you wake up.

Sleep fights inflammation in the skin: Getting enough sleep is like a natural anti-inflammatory, which is great for fighting acne, sensitivity and immune-related skin responses/irritations.

Better blood flow gives your complexion a glow: While you sleep, your body increases the blood flow to your skin (to assist the natural repair processes), this has the positive effect of breathing new life into your skin and giving you a glowing complexion.
