In today’s fast-paced world, many of us find ourselves short on sleep. Between work, family, friends, and self-care time, it’s difficult to get your 7 to 8 hours of doctor recommended sleep. Even when you have the time to sleep it’s difficult to quiet your mind enough to actually get some shut-eye. Sleep deprivation plays a massive roll in the dysfunction of many systems in the body. Not only does it affect your attention, focus, and mood, but it can cause an increased risk for respiratory disease, weaken the immune system, and have a negative impact on body weight. Think-inflammation!
As for your skin, sleep deprivation is extremely taxing. Beauty sleep is a real thing! When you lose sleep, your body produces more cortisol which through a cascade of effects helps to break down collagen and elastin. These two things are necessary for maintaining youthful, brilliant skin. Lack of sleep manifests visibly on the face in a number of ways: bags under the eyes, increasing wrinkles, paleness, sallowness, puffiness, inflammation.
Fortunately, at SkinFoodBodyLove we are committed to helping you become the healthiest you possible! We know it can be impossible to fit in a full night’s sleep sometimes, so here are a few of our favorite products suggestions to combat the nasty side effects.
For everyday AM/PM use, use our Prescribed Solutions Glycolic Antioxidant Cleansers. This cleanser contains 7% Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid which both work to exfoliate skin and diminish excess oil. In addition, the botanicals in this wash help to calm the skin while Lutein neutralizes free radicals. Together, these components make this gentle gel wash a strong defense against the effects of sleep deprivation.
Use the Biopelle KNR Serum every night to repair the damage. This serum works as you sleep using three powerful agents – Kojic Acid, Niacinamide, and Retinol. These all work to lighten and brighten the skin for all around rejuvenation and youthfulness.
Lastly, to complete your skincare kit, use Prescribed Solutions “Up the Anti” - a powerful skin protecting tint. Skin protection is a crucial step in everyone’s daily routine. This skin protector is suitable for both men and women to wear all day, and will not become chalky on darker skin tones. Ensure that you have full protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays and enjoy the benefits of the bronze tint that will give your skin a sun-kissed look!
