Good sleep should be one of the essentials of a beauty regime
We often hear people discussing the importance of beauty sleep before attending weddings or other important social gatherings. It is thought to have beneficial effects on the skin. We all know the benefits of getting enough sleep. Sleep deprivation can have negative consequences for the body, including detrimental effects on the skin. Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta, a dermatologist, recently posted an Instagram video about beauty sleep. She captioned the post, “At night, growth hormones, which help to maintain, build, and repair healthy tissue, increase. Cortisol, the stress hormone, decreases, which allows the skin to repair, heal and regenerate itself.”
She also wrote that people who get little sleep, less than 7-9 hours, showed signs of ageing sooner, with dark eyes, sagging, and dull skin appearing.
In the video, Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta said that good sleep should be one of the essentials of a beauty regime. Good sleep can help decrease wrinkles, lessen the occurrence of under-eye dark circles and puffy eyes. She also referenced a study that stated that those people who slept only for five hours will have twice as many wrinkles on their faces compared to those who slept for 7-8 hours."
The skin expert also informed that sleep deprivation caused a lesser amount of blood circulation that could ultimately lead to dullness of the skin.
