Sleeping Is Beauty
Getting enough sleep is vital for good health, as well as for keeping skin looking healthy and youthful. Unfortunately, according to recent National Sleep Foundation studies, 74% of Americans do not get enough sleep each night. Insufficient sleep is rapidly becoming one of the main causes for poor health nowadays, as well as being detrimental to the skin. Even with a good daily skin care routine, too little sleep can counteract its benefits. Although the best solution is to get adequate sleep, skincare products can be employed correctly to provide optimum effects while you sleep during the night.
Skincare Products Can Augment Beauty Sleep
The body undergoes its natural renewal and repair cycle during the night while we sleep, and with the little sleep people have nowadays, it is important to use this time to its greatest advantage. The beneficial effects of various skincare products can be maximized when applied before sleeping at night. This allows the ingredients to absorb into the skin and function properly, while enhancing the skin repairing cycle.
Skincare products that are often too intense and heavy to be used during the daytime are perfect for use at night. For instance, many anti-aging and anti-acne treatments that exert intensive nourishing effects are best used at night time, since these formulas are often more dense in consistency, and takes longer to penetrate the layers of the skin. Compared to the day time, there is less rubbing and sweating of the skin, hence the formula can be fully absorbed during the night. An excellent aging skincare line for use during the night is the Murad "Achieve Ageless" Complete Skin Renewal Kit. With nightly use of the products in the regimen, the skin's texture becomes more even and toned, while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced.
Sleeping Fights Off Acne
For people with acne-prone skin, not getting sufficient sleep makes the skin more prone to breakouts. This is because not getting enough sleep triggers stress responses in the body, which then releases excessive adrenaline and causes overproduction of oils and skin cells. This in turn causes the pores to become clogged and results in unwanted blemishes.
What if I just can't get enough sleep to avoid acne?
To treat acne breakouts due to insufficient sleep, the Murad Acne Rapid Response Set is one of the most highly acclaimed. This powerful kit contains everything you need to restore your skin to its radiant state in a short period of time, including an acne-specific cleanser, toner, mask, and perfecting lotion.
Sleeping Fights Off Baggy Eyes
Another obvious sign of lack of sufficient sleep is tired and older looking eyes. The skin under the eyes is especially delicate and thin, and is where fatigue often shows as evidenced by puffiness and dark circles. Although of course the best way to avoid these unwanted signs is for the body to obtain the sleep it craves, the alternative is to use eye treatments and under-eye concealers to temporarily minimize these telltale signs.

Now you know the importance of sleep
and the skincare products to use if you just can't find time to sleep enough.
In addition to harming both your body and skin, not getting enough sleep means that the body’s ability to repair daily environmental damage is decreased day by day. Hence, despite effective temporary solutions, it is important to find ways to reduce stress and allow your body to obtain the proper amount of sleep it requires.
