Sleep and Your Health
You’ve heard it before, in fact Ben Franklin said it long ago, “early to bed early to rise helps keep a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Folks have known for a long while…a clinical sleep study isn’t necessary to show how getting a good nights sleep is essential to a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is how our bodies recuperates from the daily stress of living. Without good sleeping habits a person is more prone to being obese, hypertension, diabetes, depression and many other unhealthy conditions. Making sure you get at least the recommended 8 hours of sleep is essential to reduce your chances of developing chronic illnesses.
Sleep and Your Skin
The same principal applies to how your sleep effects your skin. When you don’t get enough sleep at night you can wake up to puffy, bloodshot eyes and of course…the dreaded under eye bags and dark circles. During the day your skin is exposed to the sun and to various environmental pollutants. These things can dry out your skin and leave your skin dull and gaunt. Your skin really does take lots of abuse…and a good night’s sleep can help it repair itself.
When you sleep at night your body uses that time to recuperate and regenerate skin cells. Your skin recovers by reversing and healing the damage caused by the pollutants you encountered during the day. And of course your body is constantly generating new skin cells to replace dead skin cells. All this occurs optimally while you sleep. And at night, and added bonus, is that skin care products you’ve applied last longer and can work better while your rest. When products aren’t exposed to the sun and other environmental elements their potency lasts longer causing them to work better on your skin. And of course, you can use heavier type products when you’re going to bed…after all you can slather on thick moisturizers before work.
Relaxing before bed is key to a good night’s sleep
Expert will suggest that you keep to a standard routine…and avoid stimulation before bed time. And if you’re like lots of people, one of the ways you might get ready for bed is to wind down and take some time for yourself. And since many women apply moisturizers at night, it’s the perfect time for some indulgent pampering with a Bel Mondo Bio Cellulose facial mask. You can relax, read a book, listen to music, or do whatever while you let the mask super hydrate your skin.
Wearing a bio cellulose mask before bed can be a great calming addition to your bedtime routine – and it’ll help you unwind and moisturize before you go to sleep. And since the beneficial ingredients will have all night to absorb deeply – you’ll wake up refreshed and with great looking skin.
