Hiya lovelies! Now, if there is one phrase with which we all are awfully familiar then, it is ‘beauty sleep’. But, it never seems to be coming true. You wake up at 6 in the morning and look in the mirror, only to see your parrot hair and dark circles staring back at you. Today life has become such a rush that an 8-hour sleep seems to be becoming more and more of a myth. We all sleep past our bedtimes due to the late hours of work and early morning routine start-ups, which give us a maximum of 4-5 hours of sleep.
You must have heard how sometimes itching your eyes too vigorously can lead to early wrinkle formation around your eye area. Well, same is the case with your skin but in a different way. This itch is your sleep deprivation when it comes to your overall face. When we sleep at night, our bodily functions repair our cells so that our skin is immune and able to fight off the variety of things that can harm our skin. Loss of sleep leads to less and unfinished repairing of our skin, eventually leading to the early wrinkle formations on our skin and a variety of other skin conditions.
- Dark circles.
The ones who have ever dared to pull an all-nighter will relate to this. And if you have, you will find yourself up next morning with the worst darkened and puffy skin around your eyes. It is truly horrifying. The skin underneath our eyes is the thinnest in our body. So, when a person is sleep deprived, it reflects and affects the blood circulation in their body. Therefore, the blood in the veins beneath our eyes start to appear blueish-green and hence, the appearance of dark circles under our eyes. To avoid this havoc situation, you might want to start getting a proper sleep which will keep the blood circulation normal around your eyes, making them appear brighter and healthier.
- Worsened skin conditions.
If you are a teen, or even an adult dealing with skin conditions like acne breakouts and dry skin then this one tip is just what you need. Not getting enough sleep often leads to the worsening of already existing skin conditions. Sleep deprivation leads to declined moisture in your body, eventually leading to dehydration. This dehydration will not only make your skin drier and rough but also will lead to irritating breakouts. These conditions are often worse during the changing weather. So, be extra precautionary and get a proper amount of sleep. It is advised to keep your body hydrated by drinking lots of water throughout the day, but around your bedtime- not so much.
Those were few quick reasons for you all to start getting enough sleep now. Apart from these, not enough sleep steals away the natural glow of your skin and also, eventually leads to early aging over a long period of time.
