Beauty benefits of a good sleep

A good night’s sleep can mean a lot to you, lot more than you ever imagine. Many people these days usually gets less amount of sleep either due to work pressures, worries or because of spending too much time on mobile phones or social media.

When you’re deprived of enough sleep, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol which leads to increased stress and inflammation in the body, hurting your skin’s quality. Also, it can reduce the production of collagen which is highly essential for the skin to maintain its firmness and youthfulness.

Here are the few beauty benefits of getting enough sleep.

    • Fewer wrinkles: Skin produces new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging of the skin and maintains it’s youthfulness. Also, getting less hours of sleep leads to drying of skin which makes the appearance of fine lines more visible
    • Less Puffy Eyes and dark circles:  There are chances of puffy bags under your eyes and under-eye circles after few nights of less sleep.
    • Glowing complexion: When you are sleeping, your body boosts blood flow which means you wake to a healthy glow. 
    • Healthy weight: If you are on a diet for weight loss, you tend to lose more fat if you are getting enough sleep. While sleeping, certain hormones go up in blood and those same hormones drive appetite.
    • Lower stress and worries: Getting a good sleep can reduce the levels of stress an you can have a better control over blood pressure. Also, it is a good solution to depression and anxiety problems.
