Regenerates the body
If you’ve got 6 hours of restless, fatigued sleep the previous night, it won’t do. This is because it is only during the start and end of a deep sleep cycle that the growth hormone is secreted. This hormone helps repair the body, regenerate skin cells and soothe the mind while sleeping so make sure you get quality snooze time tonight.
When the body doesn’t get enough sleep, it increases production of the stress hormone cortisol. This in turn, breaks down collagen and protein in the body, causes wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet to form. Who ever thought that a full night of sleep could keep you looking younger too!
When sleeping, the blood flow to the skin increases. This improves the quality of your skin as well as increases elasticity and smoothness when you wake up. The skin is also highly receptive to skin products during the sleep cycle hence the right night routine is just as important. Don’t forget to apply the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Face Mask before you snooze for its Mineral Laden Glacial Water to bathe your skin in moisture and nourishment while you sleep.
If you’ve noticed that your under eye area is puffy the first thing in the morning, it’s probably because you’ve not got enough ZZZ’s. Sleep deprivation causes swelling and dryness, which can lead to dark circles, dry eyes and puffy under eyes. Prevent this by switching off your phone, slipping on an eye mask and hitting the hay on time.
