Have you ever heard the term “beauty sleep” before? Well, turns out this is way more than just a simple expression. When you were younger, I bet your parents would tell you, “go to sleep” all the time. You probably chose to fight them on it, am I right? As you get older that likely changed. Well, it’s quite possible that sleep can keep your skin looking healthy. If you don’t believe me, well, you don’t have to. Instead, I advise that you believe what Dr. Harold Lancer has to say about the topic.
Go To Sleep For Better Looking Skin
If you’re not familiar with Dr. Lancer, he is a celebrity dermatologist that’s famous for giving great advice to some of those in Hollywood that you see on television with perfect complexions.
According to an article published on EOnline, Dr. Harold Lancer stated that “the best thing you can do for your skin is to make sure you’re getting enough sleep.”
That doesn’t mean that you should only focus on getting enough sleep during the workweek. The weekends count too! You need to get enough sleep every single night.
Have you ever pulled an all-nighter or stayed out extremely late only to be left with a few short hours of sleep before having to go to work? Well, if you have and you’ve looked at yourself in the mirror the next day, you probably didn’t like what you saw, right? Heavy bags under your eyes, saggy looking skin and just overall tired looking skin right? Well, imagine how your skin must feel!
Now, if you want to amplify your sleeping skin care efforts you can choose do the following:
- Sleep on your back to reduce wrinkles on your face.
- Be sure to incorporate a high thread count pillow and make sure it’s clean. If you want to take things to the next level, you can even incorporate a pillow case that’s specifically made for maintaining healthy skin.
- Avoid bed sheets and pillow case fabrics that contain dyes. Instead, try to use white sheets to keep your skin from becoming irritated.
- Wash your face before bed every night.
That should help further improve or maintain your healthy skin status. One other important thing to remember is that attempting to circumvent the sleeping process and instead incorporate product usage isn’t going to make up for it. Instead, you’re going to find your skin in trouble. Just put in the hours and get some sleep!
