Why Sleep Is Good For the Skin

Why Sleep Is Good For the Skin

It’s important to get your sleep on for even more beautiful skin


Hey beauties, did you know that March 17 is World Sleep Day? This year’s theme is  “Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life,” but in a way, we should also remember that sleeping helps to nurture our skin. From an early age, we are taught that a healthy amount of sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle. Research has shown that there are numerous benefits of sleeping, from cardiovascular health, to emotional wellness, to physical and mental productivity.

When it comes to the beauty realm, it’s commonly known that sleep helps to prevent dark circles under the eyes and that’s about it. Most people would be surprised to know that sleep is very good for the skin and “Catching Zzz’s” must always be a part of our daily skincare regimen.

Beauty Sleep – It’s True!

The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults need anywhere from seven to nine hours a day of sleep. During sleep, our bodies produce collagen, which gives skin strength and elasticity. Collagen also helps to revive skin cells, but that process starts to slow down as we age. Another benefit of sleeping is that it increases blood flow to your face, giving you that naturally rosy and moisturized complexion. It’s important to get enough sleep so that our skin always looks smooth, hydrated, and youthful.

Not Enough Sleep  

Because of our busy lifestyles, whether it’s work, family, or recreational activities (hello, selfies!), some people are sleeping much less than what the body needs. It’s recommended that we get more than six hours of sleep, but that isn’t always the case. While sleeping and a healthy diet are the best for keeping our skin healthy, thankfully there are other ways to help us look like we’ve had a full night’s sleep. DERMA E offers a variety of all-natural products that are designed to restore and replenish our skin.

Skincare While You Sleep

Here’s the best part: you can still take care of your skin while you sleep! We offer products that you can apply right before bed and that will do the work for you. Our blogger-approved Overnight Peel is a nighttime exfoliant containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids that is designed to remove dead skin, repair sun damage, and smooth fine lines. Looking for your new eye BFF? Our Hydrating Eye Cream is a hydrating wonder that uses the power of Hyaluronic Acid, antioxidant-rich green tea, and nourishing vitamins. Get yourself a good night’s sleep and wake up to an even more glowing you!
