We hear so much about how sleep is important for our wellbeing, but it is also important for our appearance. Here’s how getting enough sleep can boost your beauty quotient.
Helps with Anti-Aging
Chronically missing out on good quality sleep indirectly applies stress to the body. Over time, this can wreak havoc on the skin as the collagen thins out and can even break down. Over time, your skin will look lackluster and may start to show fine lines and wrinkles.
Not sleeping well on a regular basis can trigger dark circles which occur when the blood vessels under the eyes dilate. Even under eye puffiness is a common side-effect due to lack of sleep and/ or due to water retention.
Bad Hair Days
Lack of sleep over time can trigger an increase in cortisol, which can trigger a condition known as telogen effluvium. This can lead to hair thinning and even hair loss over time.
