SponsoredDedicated: Beauty Sleep for Healthy Skin

Sensitive skin or not, one of the most important beauty-musts is to get enough sleep. Of course, this sounds way easier than done, especially for busy urban professionals students, mothers, late night YouTube surfers… ok, so everyone. But getting enough rest is key, not only because it helps us stay healthy and happy, but because sleep actually helps the skin fight the aging process.

A Beverly Hills based dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer, told the LA Times that during sleep is when the skin produces collagen, which we all know is what helps keeps the skin supple, smooth and wrinkle free. And it’s not just about getting enough sleep- it’s also about getting quality sleep. As the body settles into deep sleep, growth hormones help initiate cell and tissue repair which results in healthier skin. But if you’re only sleeping intermittently, or not reaching the deepest stage of rest- Delta Sleep- those growth hormones actually don’t kick into action. The result? Skin that takes longer to heal and in some cases, even causing it to break out in rashes. And as us sensitive-skinned gals know, we’ll take all the help we can get to keep our skin healthy and happy!

So what are some tips for getting a good night’s sleep? Some of my must-do’s below:

- No alcohol or caffeine for hours before bedtime: these are two sure- fire ways to spend all night tossing and turning or otherwise not getting a good night’s rest.

- Don’t watch any crazy news, movies, or do stressful work before you turn in. Your mind needs to rest and unwind.

- Help your skin get a head start on the healing process with a vitamin rich night cream. Simple’s Vital Vitamin Night Cream helps sooth the skin and replenish moisture throughout the night. This is especially key during summer and winter months when you’re exposing your skin to dry air via the AC or heat.

- Don’t forget to take care of your eyes. A huge part of getting a good night’s rest is also letting your eyes relax and the sensitive skin around it heal. Applying Simple’s Soothing Eye balm  before bed helps me feel more relaxed and prevents my eye area from feeling tight or dry. An added benefit? Super refreshed eyes without any puffiness in the morning.

- Get a sleep schedule going/just do it. This is perhaps the hardest (but most important rule) for me to follow. Us working gals know that there’s not too much room for extra snoozing in the morning, so definitely try to get your crucial 6 to 8 hours in by turning in earlier at night. Of course there’s always more websites to browse, more TV to watch, more work to do- but you’ll thank yourself AND be more productive the next day if you just make yourself go to bed.

What are some of your must-have tips for getting a good night’s sleep? And how many hours are you getting a night?
