​Sleep Your Way to Glowing Skin

​Sleep Your Way to Glowing Skin

Jan 6th 2021

They don’t call it beauty rest for nothing

We put our skin through a lot during the course of a day: sun exposure, pollution, stress, to name a few common insults. So our complexion needs time to rest and repair—and that happens when we sleep. In fact, studies have shown that cell growth and regeneration peak around 11:30 pm. Read on for the specifics about why a good night’s rest is the key to gorgeous, healthy skin.

Sleep gives you a brighter glow…

Research reveals that stress hormone cortisol levels decrease when you’re asleep. That spells good news for your skin: With less cortisol, your body can do a better job repairing and regenerating cells responsible for keeping your skin looking bright and vibrant.

…and can help reduce breakouts…

Less cortisol = fewer pimples, too. In numerous studies, high levels of cortisol have also been linked to increased likelihood of acne breakouts and flare-ups of psoriasis and eczema.

…while giving you plumper looking skin…

Clocking consistent, good quality sleep on most nights can help lower the risk of inflammation, which has been shown to speed the breakdown of collagen that gives your skin its bounce and elasticity.

…increased moisture…

When you’re sleep deprived, your complexion is also more likely to appear dry and flaky. Why? Without enough time to repair at night, your skin’s ability to retain moisture is reduced. The more you sleep, the better hydrated your complexion. (Still, it’s a good idea to slather on an ultra-moisturizing cream with hydrating ingredients before bed—like dill extract and vitamin B3—both of which are found in  SeeMe Beauty Sweet Dreams Night Cream.)

…and fewer dark spots.

The snooze-inducing hormone melatonin, which your body produces naturally when it’s time to rest, does more than just help you sleep. Research shows it’s also a powerful antioxidant that helps diminish dark spots and fine lines while also helping skin appear more radiant.

Bottom line: A good night’s rest is key to putting your best face forward come morning
