The swelling that appears on the face as soon as you wake up in the morning puts you in sudden trouble. Sometimes suddenly dark circles or spots on the skin start appearing under the eyes. Have you ever thought that lack of sleep can have a bad effect on your skin along with other things? If not, then this information can be of great use to you. After all, this is really a matter of beauty sleep.
Some time ago a research took place in Paris. That research revealed that lack of sleep, or sleeping for less than six hours for several days in a row, can be harmful to the face and skin. Even if you have not slept properly for two-three days in a row, this loss can still be visible. The special thing is that this can happen even in young, healthy people. Research has found that this lack of sleep can lead to imbalances in skin color, pH level, moisture, etc. Whereas the skin of those who get enough sleep remains comparatively healthy and glowing.
Increasing sleep problems among youth
The skin shows this bad effect sooner than many other problems. This is the reason that even two days of incomplete sleep causes scars on the skin. The research also revealed that the number of short sleepers who get less than six hours of sleep is increasing rapidly and a large percentage of them are youth. This is the reason why skin related problems are also becoming common among the youth.
What to do to avoid these problems
Health experts suggest that for a full 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, always keep in mind the basics like eating light meals, not sleeping immediately after meals at night, not taking any gadgets to bed. Getting good sleep gives the skin a chance to repair itself. If there is no sleep, then the skin cannot do this work, whose effect is visible.
- Cleanse and moisturize the skin thoroughly before sleeping. Remember, makeup or any other kind of cosmetic prevents the skin from breathing freely.
- If your skin is suffering from any kind of allergy or is sensitive, then consult a doctor and use a medicated moisturizer or lotion.
- Your bed, especially pillows, should be clean and comfortable. Change sheets and pillow covers at least once a week.
- Do not sleep with bright lights on. This light sends the message to your brain that it is light now and it is not time for sleep. In such a situation, along with the rest of the body, the skin also finds it difficult to do repair work and problems start emerging on the skin.
Keep these things in mind for good sleep
- Avoid things like day nap, drinking tea and coffee before sleeping etc.
- Consult a doctor if you need melatonin supplements. It is a kind of sleep hormone but it is necessary to use it only after consulting a doctor. Also, getting used to it can also make it difficult.
- If you have a habit of sleeping at night by massaging or applying oil on your head, then try to take a bath before sleeping and sleep with your head covered. This oil can not only spoil the bedding and pillows and create many germs, but can also make it difficult for your skin.
- Keep the bedroom temperature normal. It is especially important to have a normal temperature if you use appliances like AC or heater. This also gives relief to the skin.
