how your sleep habits could be making you look bad and what to do about it
It’s well known that quality of sleep can affect your overall health. Did you also know that it can have a huge impact on your skin’s appearance? Poor sleep habits can lead to dark under-eye circles and puffiness, sallow skin tone, breakouts, and more.
When you’re asleep, stress hormones take a break, allowing your skin to repair and rejuvenate. That means developing a sleep routine, including use of proper skin care products, is especially important.
So if you’re tired of letting your sleep habits make you look bad, here’s what to do about it:
- Start by keeping a regular sleep schedule, including time to unwind before going to bed. Set aside time when you’ve turned off the television and any other screens (no phones, tablets, or laptops!), listen to soothing music, and diffuse calming essential oils to help you relax and prepare your body to rest.
- The food and drinks you consume affect your quality of sleep as well. Be sure to steer clear of caffeine, especially in the afternoon and evening hours, as well as heavy or spicy foods and drinks that could cause indigestion. Incorporating probiotics (found in foods such as kefir, kombucha, and yogurt) into your diet is good for your belly, too, and can promote sleep quality and protect from stress.
- Using skin care products with probiotics has a similar effect. The pre+probiotic ingredients in pure haven’s non toxic skin care work to feed and protect your skin. They promote a healthy skin barrier and defend against the effects of aging, pollution, and everyday stressors. Regular use will help you achieve a healthier-, younger-looking complexion. Simply wash, tone, moisturize, and apply eye cream morning and night for best results.
- Take advantage of the recuperative hours of sleep with a nightly routine rife with nourishing ingredients, so that they can sink into your skin when it’s most receptive to the restorative benefits. For a truly restful experience, indulge in full body prep during your unwinding time, starting at your toes with a foot therapy soak and foot therapy cream, and working your way up with a skin-nourishing sleepy body oil massage, and refresh night serum with probiotics on your face to finish off your nightly skin care routine.
