Why Sleep is Vital for Youthful Skin
Your body repairs itself and recovers while you sleep, so it’s important you give it enough time to do its job. During shut-eye, your body produces new collagen (the protein that prevents sagging and makes your skin look firm). Blood flow also boosts overnight which is what gives your skin that covetable rosy, youthful glow.
On top of that, it’s been proven that people who consistently get enough quality sleep are actually able to recover faster from environmental stressors to the skin. Meanwhile, those who aren’t sleeping enough deal with skin that reveals more visible signs of aging. Sleep-deprived people also experience slower recovery from the same environmental stressors.
How to Setup Your Sleeping Oasis For a Good Night’s Sleep
There are many contributing factors when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep and waking up with plump skin naturally. Here are a few simple tips to get started:
Optimize Your Bedroom For Sleep
It’s important to start off by creating a room that’s ideal for sleeping. A good sleeping environment is dark, quiet and cool — all of these factors help prevent the disruption of your natural sleep cycle.
If you ever find yourself searching for a luxurious sleeping experience, consider the Attrap Rêves bubble hotel in the quaint French countryside just on the outskirts of the famous lavender fields of Marseille. This extraordinary hotel enables you to doze off quite literally under the stars in a transparent pod!
Splurge on a Worthy Mattress and Pillow
Another factor that can help improve the quality of your sleep is to ensure that your mattress and pillow(s) are comfortable. While everyone’s preferences are going to be different, it’s important to choose options that are most comfortable for you.
Avoid Your TV
It’s also a good idea to reserve your bed for catching z’s. Not only will the mattress last longer but your mind will associate your bed with sleep — not Netflix. This will help you fall into a state of deep sleep faster. This is the vital moment for your skin, body, and brain to repair themselves; with deep sleep, you can wake up with a plump face naturally.
Upgrade Your Pillow Cover
Silk pillowcases are something everyone should consider as its one of the secrets to youthful looking skin. Silk is made of tightly woven, smooth fibers which help keep moisture close to the skin. This will leave your complexion feeling more hydrated and less prone to wrinkles.
Unlike other materials, silk pillowcases are smooth and don’t wrinkle. This means you won’t wake up with pillow marks on your face after waking up.
Speaking of pillow covers, make sure that your cases are washed at least every two weeks to avoid any bacteria spreading on your skin while you’re asleep.
Trust in the Powers of a Skin Care Ritual
Routines are a great way to train your body for sleep. Repeating the same purposeful habits as you’re starting to wind down will get you in the mood for relaxation.
After you put your phone away, start your evening skin care ritual with your Geothermal Clay Cleanser. While you cleanse away impurities from your skin, enjoy refreshing aromas from the natural spearmint and basil extracts. Afterward, use ABO +|- face serum and eye serum to counteract the visible signs of aging and fatigue. With each application, any puffiness is instantly reduced, wrinkles are smoothed, and the enriched oxygen and algae formula stimulates the circulation of the skin to boost radiance in your complexion. Thanks to their oxygenating abilities, our ABO +|- products are also the ideal products to enhance your complexion during an evening facial yoga massage.
Next, while you’re fast asleep and your body is repairing itself, why not give your skin an extra boost to regenerate with a potent facial oil? The Extraordinary Face Oil deeply hydrates and heals the skin while giving off a fresh whiff of rose and jasmine petals that will linger until you’re fast asleep.
Lay on Your Back
Use gravity to your advantage. When sleeping on your back, you allow your face to stay smooth and plump. Contrarily, when you fall asleep on your side, your face is crumpled and pressed against your pillow which can cause premature wrinkles. Sleeping on your back is not only better for anti-aging, but it can also help to reduce morning puffiness around your eyes and face.
Infuse Essential Oils Into Sleeptime
Aromatherapy is another great option to consider at bedtime. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for healing. It has been used for nearly 6,000 years and can help relax the mind to prepare the body for slumber. While it doesn’t necessarily ensure you will have a deeper sleep, the use of aromatherapy calms the body and can make it easier to fall asleep. Try lighting Nest or BYREDO candles by your bedside to doze off with heavenly scents.
Getting 7-9 hours of good quality sleep is so important for our skin and has so many great benefits. By creating the perfect sleeping oasis, it is easier to achieve this goal. Results are quick too. By getting just 1-3 additional hours of slumber each night, you can see a noticeable difference in your skin in as little as just one day.
A good skin care routine will also go the extra mile to aid your skin repair itself. Circcell‘s range of high-performance skin care products can equip you with potent luxury blends that will help you plump up your face naturally.
