WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE SLEEP A PRIORITY AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR SKIN

Spoiler alert, beauty sleep is real.

You’ve likely heard just how devastating a lack of sleep can be for all aspects of your beauty and wellness.

From depleting your collagen to plummeting your immune system to spiking your cortisol levels to ramping up dehydration, sleep deprivation is your worst nightmare (pun intended).

As if mother nature didn’t make sleep difficult enough…

She decided to throw another wrench in the gears; you can’t just get 7 – 9 hours of sleep a few nights a week, and then expect to thrive off of less for the rest of the week. You also can’t bank your sleep. Getting 12 hours of sleep one night doesn’t allow you to sleep 5 hours the next.

Your body has evolved to require consistency.

The good news is, there are a number of things you can do to set yourself up for a great night’s sleep, such as limiting screen time before bed, lowering the temperature of your bedroom, having a hot bath, sleeping in complete darkness, avoiding caffeine late in the day, and establishing a consistent bedtime routine (even on weekends).

Sounds like a lot, but trust me, it’s worth the effort.

The deep, restorative sleep that comes from getting those 7 – 9 hours of zzz’s per night increases your skin’s blood flow, and supports your skin in rebuilding its collagen, as well as repairing damage from UV exposure, and reduces wrinkles and age spots.

Quality sleep also improves your cognition and mental wellness – so there’s that too. In fact, sleep just might be one of the most important factors in all aspects of mental and physical health and wellness.

Those tips alone should make a huge impact on your sleep – and your skin – but, if you’d like that extra bit of sleep insurance with an added dose of skin revitalizing benefits, consider adding Ultimate PM into your nighttime routine.
