Hands up if you love sleep?! Yes, silly question because come on, who doesn’t! Did you know that having bad sleeping habits could be holding you back from the gorgeous, glowing skin you have always dreamed of? As hard as it might be these days, with our hectic work lives and full social lives, having good sleeping habits will not only help you to feel your best but will also have you looking your best and will do wonders for your skin.

Your skin repairs, rejuvenates and regenerates while you sleep (they don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing). Some of the benefits of getting a good night’s sleep can include improving your immunity, boosting your mood, supports your memory and concentration, and most importantly supports healthy skin which can mean;



Fewer wrinkles – When you sleep your skin works to make new collagen, and we all know that’s something we want! More collagen means skin is plumper and less likely to wrinkle.



Glowing Complexion – Your body boosts blood flow to the skin while you snooze, so getting a good amount of zzz’s can mean you wake up radiant and glowing. Not getting enough can make your skin look drab, ashen or lifeless.



Brighter, less puffy eyes – One of the first, most obvious signs of sleep deprivation is puffy eyes and dark circles. If you get a good night’s sleep, stay well hydrated your eyes will open bright with a lot less puffiness. You can even try elevating your head with a larger pillow, which can help reduce the puffiness.



You just look Happier – No matter if you’re a morning person or not, getting your shut eye can make you feel great, which in turn can make you look great! We all love seeing those happy smiling faces.




Some tips – Plan your sleep times, if you know you have to get up by a certain time to get to work then make sure you are going to bed early enough to allow for this (e.g. don’t let your Netflix play that next 55-minute episode when its already late, even if things are just getting good!). Try and avoid watching TV or being on your phone an hour before you are due to go to bed, the blue lights emitted from screens can be very damaging to our quality of sleep. Avoid caffeine late in the day. Still having trouble, try taking something to help like Magnesium or Chamomile tea. 

If you feel like an extra boost for your skin, maybe try adding something like our MooGoo Night Cream to your night time skin care as well. It has both Lactic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid which help renew the skin and improve skin elasticity and texture during all while you sleep!
