Ladies, we all know that with our hectic lifestyles, it can be difficult to have a goodnights sleep. With the kids, work, studying, side business, what every your thing, you're running around trying to juggle it all and you can barely catch a moment for yourself.
However, pulling all-nighters to catch up on your work or just not getting enough sleep because you’re busy scrolling through social media can have detrimental effects on your skin, hair and nails. Damage will first appear on our skin – dark circle and eye bags become a thing, not long after you start to see lines because a tired face is a thing!
So, here are a few reasons why beauty sleep is so important.
- Lack of sleep = looking older!
Research has found that lack of sleep accelerates the ageing process. This leads to fine lines and wrinkles forming much early than they should! It was also found that dehydrated skin, large pores, increased redness and increased dark circles under the eyes will also be on the list of skin problems you will now have to worry about! If these are all issues you notice in your skin now, we would recommend our Power Lift Trio which works with your DNA to reverse the signs of ageing.
Use Matrix DNA twice a day, every day, to fight the ageing process at a genetic level and give your skin the ultimate defence against daily living.
At night, gently exfoliate with Melting Magic, allowing it to fully absorb into the skin - then 2-3 times a week, apply Retinol Max, a superpower for the skin that smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, helping your skin look younger, fresher and brighter!
- Breakouts are no longer a thing of the past
Once we reach a certain age, we expect our pimples and blackheads to disappear – and sometimes with age it does. However, if you’re lacking a goodnights sleep, your skin can become inflamed, causing dryness, redness and breakouts. If you’ve noticed your pimples appearing in your skin, then give our Flawless Corrective Serum a go. Millionaire Flawless Corrective Serum for spots and acne contains Azelaic Acid – a clinically proven miracle acne reducer and skin brightener. We call it our GLOW serum because it improves skin brightness, reduces pigmentation and saves your face!
- Lack of sleep will make your skin conditions worse
If you already suffer from acne, psoriasis, rosacea and other inflammatory disorders, 8 hours of sleep are all the more important. Anxiety levels usually heighten when we don’t sleep which can in turn cause a breakout.
- Hair growth will most likely be affected
Hormones, diet and illness can impact our hair, but so can our lifestyle habits. The quality and quantity of hair we have can be negatively impacted by our quality and quantity of sleep. This is because lack of sleep can cause our body to respond the same way it would to stress, leading to non-permanent hair loss.
- It can make your nails weak
Weak and brittle nails are usually a result of you being overly anxious and not having much rest. According to Dr. Segal, “Stress can affect the nail matrix, where the nail is produced, and can result in abnormal growth of the nail,” she explains. “These changes typically resolve once good health and healthy habits are restored and will resolve as the nail grows out.”
Moral of the story ladies? Get a goodnights sleep! Have a prebedtime routine. Complete your skincare routine, stop drinking caffeinated drinks at least 2 hours before bedtime and thank me later when your skin is glowing, hair is silky and nails and strong!
How old you are is your business. How old you look is ours.
