Sleeping Habits That Truly Define Beauty Sleep

The term "beauty sleep" really nails how important sleep is for keeping your skin looking fresh and youthful. When you sleep, your body works on repairing skin cells, making collagen, and keeping your skin hydrated—key for that firm, smooth look. Good sleep also helps reduce dark circles and puffiness by boosting circulation and cutting down on inflammation. Plus, it balances hormones like cortisol to keep breakouts at bay. Basically, getting enough quality sleep is a must for staying young and glowing.

However, without the proper sleeping habits, some of these benefits can be reversed. Here are our favorite sleeping habits that contribute to the rejuvenating beauty sleep your skin deserves.

Cleanse Your Skin Thoroughly 

Before jumping into bed each night, wash off the day with a robust skincare routine. Using a gentle cleanser to wash off makeup, dirt, and debris your skin has gathered throughout the day is essential to preventing blemishes and clogged pores. Even when wearing Oxygenating Foundation which won't negatively affect your skin as you sleep, it isn't ideal to keep whatever pollutants have accumulated on your skin there all night.

Protect & Moisturize

Protecting your skin before you sleep is also important. Use whatever serums and moisturizers work best for your skin and opt for products that are breathable and non-comedogenic. Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix is our favorite nighttime moisturizer to keep your skin protected and breathing while you sleep. 

Your Pillowcase Matters

Cotton pillowcases may be comfortable in the winter months, but they aren't the best option for wrinkle and bacteria growth prevention. Cotton can pull at your skin and trap moisture, harboring acne causing bacteria.

Instead use silk pillowcases that are antimicrobial and won't trap moisture. Silk also causes less friction so your skin won't be pulled or irritated as easily. Silk is also great for keeping your hair hydrated with less breakage.

Also change your pillowcase often, especially if you are acne prone. Have multiple cases available so you can change them a couple times a week, or at least once a week.

Pillows For Wrinkle Prevention

The less your face is squished while you sleep, the less wrinkles. There are different pillows available that can keep your face off the pillow as much as possible. Some of them have a U shape on the side that keep the pillow off your cheeks, while others help promote sleeping on your back. 

Sleep On Your Back

This is easier said than done, but the less your face touches your pillow the better. If you can't sleep on your back, try at least having the bottom half off the pillow. Many people have more wrinkles on the side of their face they sleep on, so sleeping on your back is one way to avoid premature wrinkling.

Aim For a Consistent Sleep Routine

Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day can improve your quality of sleep. Getting 7-9 hours of quality sleep will help your skin rejuvenate and repair, leaving you looking refreshed and glowing. 

Incorporating good sleep habits into your nightly routine can have a profound impact on your skin's health and appearance. By establishing a consistent sleep schedule, creating a restful environment, and following simple skincare tips like using silk pillowcases and moisturizing, you can enhance your beauty rest and wake up looking refreshed and radiant.

Remember, quality sleep is not just about feeling rested—it's a vital component of maintaining youthful, glowing skin. Prioritize your beauty rest, and you'll see the benefits reflected in your complexion, ensuring you look and feel your best every day.
