The Effects of Sleeplessness and Insomnia on your skin

  • Get less than six hours of sleep most nights?
  • Feel tired even when you've slept?
  • Take longer than 10 minutes to fall asleep?

 

Almost everyone goes through periods of sleeplessness or even full-blown insomnia every now and then.

 

For some it’s difficult to switch off the brain at the end of the working day. For others, it’s the demands of parenthood that mean sleep is sparse or disrupted.

Lack of sleep is one of the worst things for your skin. (It isn't called "beauty sleep" for nothing.)

When you’re sleep-deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol, creating inflammation in the body. This will cause flare-ups of skin conditions and can cause break-outs. Your skin also repairs itself while you sleep, so if you aren't getting quality shuteye, it will show in dull, fatigued skin. This is due to depleted cell energy: if you’re tired, your skin cells will be tired.

The BIOTEC Energising Skincare System is the complete skincare program with a night cream specifically formulated for reviving the skin’s natural vitality.

BIOTEC Skin Energising Night Cream is powered by the BIO-ENERGY complex of encapsulated Zinc and Copper, and enriched with Calcium PCA to boost night-time nourishment. Trans-epidermal water loss is limited, the skin’s natural barrier function is reinforced and the complexion appears smooth, energized and replenished upon waking.

TIPS TO GET A DECENT NIGHT'S SLEEP
TIPS TO GET A DECENT NIGHT'S SLEEP

 

  • Don’t eat heavy meals in the evening and try not to eat after 8pm to allow for digestion.
  • Stop looking at your phone and laptop by 9pm.
  • Try to be ready for bed by 10pm, even if you don’t fall asleep at that time.
  • Make sure the room is the right temperature. It should be a little bit cool - 65 degrees is ideal.
  • If you’re tossing and turning, put the light on and read or do breathing exercises until your eyes feel heavy.
