Sleep is imperative for your health, but its also very important for your skin. Lack of sleep may be the reason your skin isn't looking its best. During sleep our bodies get to rest from our daily movement and the blood has a chance to circulate and rejuvenate the skin. This is why (among other reasons) making sure you are getting good quality sleep is so necessary.
So while the health benefits of adequate sleep are a huge deal, right now we're going to talk about ways to take better care of your skin while you slumber. Here are a few of our favorite tips for getting a more BEAUTIFUL sleep.
"We are such stuff as dreams are made of. And our little life is rounded in sleep."
SILK PILLOWS - One of our favorite beauty-sleep-tricks is sleeping with a silk pillow. Other fabrics cause friction that causes hair and skin damage while you sleep. Have you ever woken up with tangled hair and fabric wrinkles on your face? Spending hours with your face wrinkled against your bedding fabric can contribute to permanent wrinkles.
CLEANSE YOUR FACE - It's tempting to cut corners when you're ready to collapse into bed, but cleansing your face with Rain Replenishing Oil Cleanser prepares your skin for a restful night. It effectively removes dirt, oil, and makeup while hydrating and maintaining healthy Ph levels.
MOISTURIZE - Your skin is using this time to renew and you need to give it everything it needs to do that. Our bodies loose about eight ounces of water while we sleep at night so it's especially important to moisturize before bed so your skin won't look dried out.
AVOID PUFFY EYES: Puffy eyes are a sure sign of lack of sleep. However, some people deal with puffy eyes no matter how much rest the get. One tip to avoid the puff is to sleep on a pillow that is propped up slightly to prevent swelling. And make sure you apply Starry Eyes Brightening Eye Cream before you slip into the sheets. It is formulated to improve blood circulation and reduce puffiness.
Now take a few deep breaths and close your lovely eyes.
When to use it: Your skin has been acting up and it needs to rehydrated and rejuvenated overnight.
Why we love it: Adding or proprietary blend of oils to your face cream transforms it into a restorative powerhouse.
- Cleanse the skin thoroughly with Rain before bed. (If you were wearing makeup you will want to repeat your cleanse.)
- Apply a few pumps of Purity Perfectly Clear Tonic and feel your skin tingle with freshness.
- Apply the prepared mixture of Rain and Clarity to the entire face and neck area using your hands to gently press (not rub!) this gorgeous blend into the skin. Close your eyes and take a deep breathe, setting the intention for a peaceful sleep and deep healing.
