Are you feeling tired throughout your day or yawning constantly? Maybe you are not getting enough sleep, which is when your body is recuperating from the day’s activities. Sleep can also help your skin look a lot more ‘fresh’ as well.
The more sleep you get, the clearer your skin will be. A lack of sleep can lead to breakouts and acne, even in adults, and that is because your skin is being stressed and not regenerating during that needed sleep period. When your skin is stressed, it is more prone to breaking out and having acne along with dark circles and an overall unhealthy look. Studies have shown that people who are going through stressful times such as a deadline or exams are more likely to breakout than others. Getting those eight hours of sleep are crucial not only to your mental health but also for your skin’s health as well.
Not sleeping enough also makes dark circles more noticeable and for people who have dark circles that run in their family, they are much more noticeable as well. Dark circles also cause your skin to look much darker and dull looking than it normally is. Your eyes also look tired and not as bright or clear than they should. A good way to avoid that is to get enough sleep but if you are not able to, then a good, bright, color matching concealer will work as well. Also drinking enough water will help your skin look a lot more healthier and clear.
Pulling an all nighter for work or school is another reason why your skin would look dull or tired. Sleeping also promotes blood flow and oxygen flow to your skin and without an adequate amount of sleep there is a higher possibility of your skin having an uneven tone. There is also a possibility that your skin could look pale or blotchy, depending on how your skin reacts.
Sleeping also makes you look awake and energetic as opposed to sleep deprived people who look dull, tired, and even less attractive to others. In a group study where people were asked to look at pictures of people who had eight hours of sleep versus people who were sleep deprived, the group agreed that the people who had adequate amounts of sleep looked much more bright, energetic, and lively as opposed to the latter. Sleeping may not seem like much for those who are always busy or have a need to stay up and do other activities but it is extremely crucial in not only your skin’s health but in your overall appearance as well.
