Waking up looking a little lacklustre lately? Turns out beauty sleep is a real thing, and when we’re not getting enough of it, our skin takes just as much of a hit as our energy levels. That’s why when it comes to getting your get-up-and-glow back, a little night cream goes a long way.
The slow-building stress of it all impacts our body in more ways than one, and our skin often bares the physical brunt of it. Busy days full of uncertainty lead to stress, stress disrupts our sleep, and less sleep means dehydrated, tired skin that hasn’t had enough time to heal and rejuvenate.
It’s basically a one-way street to dull skin-ville.
Okay, so why does skin love sleep?
In the same way you might unwind from a long day with a bath, a good book, or a steaming cup of tea, our skin takes time to unwind and rejuvenate at night too.
When we’re tucked in and fast asleep, our skin has time to heal itself away from harmful UV rays, pollutants and other environmental nasties - a straight shot at repair with no distractions.
The less sleep we get, the less time our skin has to work its natural magic and keep us looking happy and healthy. In fact, anything less than five hours of shut-eye per night can seriously affect the way we look come morning time.
The case for a great night cream
Simply put, adding something nourishing like a night cream to your routine helps turbo-charge the rejuvenation process and make up for the skin-healing hours of sleep you may or may not be missing lately.
Our skin’s oil production peaks at midday and drops off overnight when the skin is at its most permeable, meaning without supplementing moisture, we’re more likely to wake up with parched, tired skin.
A well-formulated night cream acts as a stop-gap for decreasing hydration and moisture levels, keeping water locked in and replenishing skin-smoothing oils while you snooze.
Night creams are also a great way to turn the skin’s naturally heightened permeability into a positive, boosting it with extra-nourishing ingredients at the perfect time for quick, efficient absorption.
