During the day, our bodies are exposed to various environmental toxins that could damage the skin. We repair the damage best at night when our body can fully concentrate on cellular repair and regeneration. Although our natural functions help us heal from the everyday stressors, we should also put in the effort to optimize our sleep routines. Here are three tips to make the most of your beauty sleep and reduce wrinkles.
Use a humidifier
Every night, before bed, many people take a few moments to nourish their skin with moisturizing lotions and creams. We strongly believe hydration is absolutely essential to achieving soft, supple skin. We also believe you should always be aware of the way the environment affects the condition of your skin. For instance, the dry air that circulates throughout your room as you sleep can create a dull complexion. A humidifier placed in the bedroom will infuse the air with moisture that will keep your skin hydrated.
Use silk pillowcases
Cotton is a common fabric used in pillowcases because it is affordable and easily manufactured. However, spending a night with your face resting on a cotton sheet can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. Cotton blends create unnecessary friction against your body, which results in frizzy hair and creased skin. Silk, on the other hand, is a soft and luxurious material that will not cause the friction and it will increase your comfort during sleep. Silk pillowcases are more hypoallergenic than cotton and polyester blends, and they are also better at moisture retention than cheaper fabrics.
Sleep on your back
It’s no secret that a good night’s rest can do wonders for your appearance, but sleeping can also age the skin if you are positioned incorrectly in bed. Sleeping on your side creates creases and exaggerates nasolabial fold on one side of your face. Over time, it will cause facial asymmetry and create wrinkles. You can prevent premature aging by simply sleeping on your back.
