Sleeping Beauty, we all know the tale – the wicked old stepmother poisons the beautiful princess in a deep sleep for 100 years – the irony, when she awakes she is as beautiful and radiant as the moment her eyes shut – ok 100 years asleep isn’t a feasible option in todays busy world but maybe getting eight hours can be good for your complexion.
There’s evidence that a lack of sleep shows up on your face.
In a study published in the British Medical Journal, participants rated photos of sleep-deprived faces as less attractive, less healthy and more tired.
According to a Sleep Council survey, one in 10 women feel so tired it affects their appearance every day. Top tell-tale signs are shadows under the eyes (56%), washed out, pasty skin (55%) and bags under eyes (36%).
The survey found that 94% of women agreed that the best tonic to looking and/or feeling better was a good night’s sleep.
“Beauty sleep is not a myth,” according to Dr Sean Lannigan, medical director of the sk:n clinics. “When we sleep our bodies restore themselves. In fact the metabolic rate increases to replenish dead cells at the surface of the skin.”
So what can we do to help this natural process along? follow us this week for the best skin tips and advise when sleeping.
