You know the drill — sleep is important to keep your bodies and brains more fit, focused and happy. And similarly, the effects of sleep on our skin mimic those of our bodies’; you can actually wake up with a healthy glow after a night’s rest. When you fall asleep, your cells go into repair mode to work on the damage done during the day, whether it’s UV radiation or environmental stressors. Your blood vessels dilate, letting in more nutrients and oxygen into the skin and at the same time, stimulate the removal of nasties. So while you’re layering your skin with SPF and all the good stuff during the day, don’t neglect it at night and seize the opportunity to feed your skin cells with products they need that will aid and optimise healing.
