Can eight hours a night really help you achieve glowing skin?

Nobody needs to tell us to have a few extra minutes in bed in the morning, but the truth is, most of us aren’t getting our recommended eight hours of sleep every night. Sleep is proven to reduce inflammation, help us maintain a healthy mind and body as well as lower stress levels. But what effects does it have on our skin, and why is it so important?

Skin cells regenerate themselves over night

Throughout the day, your skin is fighting off UV rays, sweat, pollution, temperature fluctuations, (must we go on!) so by the time you’re ready to rest, the skin cells are ready to grow and repair. This process actually takes place whether you’re sleeping or not – called mitosis, the cell division that renews and heals the skin is at its maximum efficiency. Your evening skincare routine is so significant as cells require the most nutrients at this time, so why not give it a boost while you sleep. Try Control Switch Repair Serum, a 93.3% naturally derived daily serum designed to help reinforce skin resilience, help rebuild the essential protective skin barrier and reinstate effective cellular renewal.

Skin becomes more receptible to products

You can’t bottle what your skin does in your sleep, which is produce more collagen. However, you can support this when your skin is in rejuvenation mode. Overnight products such as Night Watch Resilience Moisturiser, is the perfect partner, containing 1% Bakuchiol, Crocus Bulb Extract, Shea Butter, Hemp Seed Oil and Hyaluronic Acid to help restore strength to fragile, inflamed skin that’s been triggered by free radical damage and lifestyle stresses. The 1% Bakuchiol is particularly beneficial as sunshine can degrade the active components.

Your skin is able to completely de-stress

There is some truth in the saying ‘beauty sleep’, as your cortisol level aka stress hormone is affected by how much sleep you receive and can show up on your face if you don’t get enough. Your skin then becomes irritated and puffy, especially around the eyes. Night Shift Renewal Eye Serum, is a comprehensive anti-fatigue formula that’s loaded with lifting, firming and brightening actives including Hyaluronic Acid and 1% Bakuchiol, a derivate from the Psoralea Corylifolia plant, which mimics many of the effects of retinol, minus the irritation; Hemp Seed Oil as well as a blend of eight essential oils which nourish and soothe while you rest and reset.

Boost your glow with skincare while you sleep

Consistent full nights of rest can change your appearance for the better; reducing fine lines, decreasing inflammation and brightening skin. It’s a beauty trick that costs nothing, so boosting your skin with the right skincare does the hard work for you so you wake up looking and feeling your best.
