WHY YOU LOOK BETTER AFTER A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Our natural circadian rhythms do more than just regulate when we fall asleep and awaken—science shows that our skin responds to circadian rhythms by fluctuating between actively mounting defenses to environmental stresses during the day and engaging in intense tissue regeneration at night .
A LITTLE EXTRA HELP
Establishing an evening skincare regime that helps our skin’s regenerative and restorative processes while we sleep will help boost the condition and appearance of your skin when you wake up in the morning.
WHAT SHOULD GOOD EVENING SKINCARE DO?
A good night cream and other evening skincare products should help boost your skin’s ability to increase cell turnover, trigger collagen production, and help repair the skin’s protective barrier, known as the acid mantle. Our acid mantle is a protective film that contributes to your skin’s unique microflora.
SLEEP YOUR WAY TO BETTER SKIN.
The acid mantle is made up of water, oils, amino, lactic and fatty acids, as well as other acids that help bolster the skin’s immune response and even help absorb damaging UVB rays. Preserving this protective film is an important part of helping your skin stay healthy.
WHAT REGENERATION LOOKS LIKE
To consumers, terms like “reduce fine lines”, “repair damage”, “rehydrate” and other positive terms are all related to this kind of activity happening within our body’s largest organ while we sleep. Choosing the right evening skincare regimen can help you get the most out of your sleep, helping you not only wake up feeling refreshed, but looking refreshed as well.
