What is sleep doing for your skin?

There’s a serious stigma about sleep.
In today’s increasingly interconnected, always-on world we view sleep as a period of idleness or lost productivity, and we try to get by on as little as possible. Most of us don’t realize that the hours we spend asleep are actually among our most constructive: While we sleep the brain recharges and cellular repair ramps up, and the benefits are huge. Certain areas of your brain work their hardest during sleep, and skin is best able to repair and regenerate itself at night. How’s that for productivity?

Now, knowing how beneficial sleep is, consider this alarming statistic:

sleep problems affect health and quality of life for up to 45% of the world’s population.1

Just a few nights of missed sleep lead to dull skin and fine lines, and continued sleep insufficiency can result in hypertension, diabetes and a host of other issues.2

Helping clients understand the importance of active sleep and address chronic sleep insufficiency is important to us – Dermalogica’s new Sound Sleep Cocoon is an excellent place to start. It features active ingredients that transform skin overnight by optimizing nighttime skin recovery and soothing motion-activated essential oils to promote restful sleep.
