Channel your inner sleeping beauty with a good night’s sleep

A hectic work and social life can mean that sleep sometimes feels like a luxury.

However, the next time you pull an all-nighter, whether in the library or while letting your hair down, here are the multiple benefits of beauty sleep.

Faster healing skin

Your skin uses sleep hours to heal itself from the day’s damage. When you drift off, your skin gets the chance to improve. That’s why you may wake up looking fresh and rosy. Pulling an all-nighter can make your skin look pale or blotchy while sleep encourages healthy blood flow to your skin.

Fewer breakouts

More sleep, clearer skin. A lack of sleep can lead to stress, which causes pimples and blackheads, even in adults.

A healthier appetite

Sleep deprivation is directly linked to obesity. When we’re super tired, we are more likely to reach for comfort food or sugary treats to give us the energy we’re lacking.

Brighter eyes

A lack of sleep will create dark circles under your peepers and leave them dull and dreary. A decent night’s kip will revitalise weary eyes and give you back that sparkle.
