Anyone who doesn’t get enough shut-eye is familiar with the feeling of tiredness and sluggishness it brings. But did you know that exhaustion can also show up on your skin? Sleep is the body’s way of repairing, nourishing, and rejuvenating itself and skimping on valuable snooze-time both has short-term and long-term effects on your skin like dryness, redness, dull complexion, discolorations, and even breakouts.

On the other hand, when we get the so-called “beauty sleep” of seven to nine hours each night, our body’s natural healing process gets to work undisturbed, reversing the effects of sleep deprivation, cell damage, free radicals, and skin aging. This is why people immediately notice a change in your appearance with just an extra one or two hours of sleep.

How exactly does having more hours of restful sleep help you age less quickly? According to sleep experts and skin specialists, there are a handful of benefits that restful sleep can give to your skin. Below are four reasons that will make you want that beauty sleep.

1. Minimizes wrinkles and fine lines.

When you sleep, your skin produces new collagen as part of the rejuvenation process. This makes the skin plumper and less prone to wrinkles and fine lines. It is said that getting only five hours of sleep a night can cause twice as many fine lines as sleeping for seven would.

To help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, use a concentrated moisturizer like Kojie San’s Dream White Overnight Cream that helps revitalize and nourish skin during sleep.

2. Gives healthy and youthful glow.

Sleep deprivation causes a decrease in blood flow which leads to dull skin. When you sleep, the blood flow in your skin increases, which helps with cell renewal and gives that healthy, rosy glow you have in the morning.

If you’re having problems with dull complexion, use kojie.san DreamWhite Anti-Aging Blemish Correcting Cream with Kojic Acid and Keratopeel. This product helps with whitening, exfoliating, and moisturizing that gently helps remove dead skin cells and reveal clearer, brighter and younger-looking skin.

3. Reduces eye puffiness and dark circles 

When you start sleeping better—preferably with an extra pillow to elevate your head and reduce the swelling of your skin—you’ll notice your pretty peepers get brighter and your face to look less tired.

4. Boosts the effects of skincare products

To make the most out of your skincare regimen, apply anti-aging products in the evening. Dermatologists say anti-aging products work best during this time of the day, as they work with the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.

Go all out with your skincare before you call it a day: Cleanse, tone, and moisturize with kojie.san DreamWhite Anti-Aging Soap, Anti-Aging Facial Toner, Overnight Cream, and Anti-Aging Blemish Correcting Cream.
