Why Sleep is a Beauty Must

Monday, March 22, 2021

There are so many different beauty products and makeup items for people today, from lipstick to eyeliner. You can also find beautiful accessories to provide the finishing touch to your outfits. However, none of this is going to matter if you do not get sufficient sleep when you go to bed every evening. A lot of people underestimate just how critical sleep is when it comes to their overall health. Sleep gives you the ability to hit the refresh button so that you are ready to tackle the day ahead. Sleep is also important for keeping your stress levels low and ensuring that your skin looks young and radiant. However, there are many people all around the world who struggle to get the sleep they require. With that being said, we are going to delve more into the importance of sleep in this blog post, as well as providing you with some useful tips on how you can make sure you get your beauty sleep.

Why sleep is important - They don’t call it beauty sleep for no reason!

The importance of getting the required amount of sleep every evening cannot be overlooked. Sleep is important because it is your body’s team to heal and repair. If you do not get a good night of sleep, you can wake up the following morning feeling stressed and irritable. This is no way to start the day! You want to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and ready to tackle a new day ahead. A good night of sleep will make sure this is the case.

Sleep is also critical in terms of keeping your stress levels low. The impact of stress is well documented. Stress is related to a wide number of different health issues. Not only this, but stress can cause havoc when it comes to your skin and the overall condition of it! If you do not get enough sleep, you can wake up in the morning with bags under your eyes, and you’re more likely to get lines and wrinkles, which can make you look older than you are. This shows why sleep is imperative when it comes to making sure that you look and feel your very best.

A lack of sleep has also been linked to a number of different skin conditions, including acne. The reason why a lack of sleep can cause acne is that if you do not get enough hours of rest, this results in stress in the body, which can cause a spike in cortisol. This then results in inflammation as well as an increase in sebum production, which clogs pores and causes breakouts. The good news is that there are acne creams that can help with this if you’re someone who battles against skin breakouts on a regular basis. However, finding a way to ensure you get a good night’s sleep every night can also make a massive difference. 

Why is it so hard to get a good night’s sleep?

Now that we have touched upon the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, you may wonder why it is so difficult to achieve this, to begin with! Surely, we should all be able to doze off in the evening, especially if we are tired. The trouble is that it can be a bit of a vicious cycle!

There are plenty of reasons why people struggle to sleep, including the brain being too active because we’re too busy worrying about the following day. When we get into bed, we often start thinking about all of our troubles and worries, and this ends up keeping us awake throughout the night. 

It becomes a bit of a vicious cycle, as once you miss one night’s worth of good rest, you can find it more difficult to sleep again the following evening. This is because you have broken out of your body clock, which means your body struggles to realise when it should be awake and when it should be asleep. In addition to this, you may find yourself napping the following day because you did not sleep much the night before, and then this can make it difficult for you to fall asleep again the following evening. All hope is not lost, though, as we will discuss…

Getting a good night’s sleep

While there is no magical cure that can ensure you get to sleep every evening, there are a number of different things that you can do to increase your chance’s of having a restful and restorative night’s sleep, so we will take a look at these in further detail to give you a better understanding. 

The first thing that we recommend doing is trying to go to sleep at the same time every evening and wake up at the same time every morning. Yes, this means on weekends too! This is important because your body will get into a routine, and so you will get used to arising at a certain time and sleeping at a certain time. This should make it easier for you to dose off during the evening.

In addition to this, it is important to make sure that your bedroom is soft and comforting. If your bedroom is painted a bright shade of red all over, you will struggle to get to sleep in the evening because this colour is stimulating, rather than being relaxing. Instead, it makes sense to go for a neutral and soothing colour palette. A light shade of blue, for example, would work really well in a bedroom. You should also make sure that you have lots of soft furnishing so that the room is as comfortable as possible. You may want to think about investing in some serene and tranquil pieces of wall art to provide the perfect finishing touch.

Of course, investing in a good mattress is also important when it comes to creating the best environment for you to get to sleep in the evening. The difficult thing about buying a mattress is that there is no right or wrong. We all have different levels of comfort. Some people prefer a firm mattress, others prefer a soft one, and so it is all about understanding what you are going to find most comfortable. Needless to say, it also makes sense to read reviews that have been left by people who have purchased the mattress in question already so that you can see what they have had to say.

Finally, make sure you avoid drinking drinks with caffeine late in the day, as this can stimulate the body and mind, keeping you awake during the evening. You should also try to avoid exercising or eating your dinner within a few hours of going to bed. Again, this will make it more difficult for you to get to sleep. We would also recommend that you do not use your phone while you’re in bed, as the light from your mobile can keep you awake for longer.

So there you have it: an insight into the importance of sleep when it comes to your beauty regime. When they call it beauty sleep, they truly mean it! If you are someone who finds it difficult to get the sleep that is required every evening, try out the different tips and ideas that have been mentioned above to see if they make a difference when it comes to your ability to drift off to sleep and enjoy an uninterrupted night of rest.
