How Sleep Can Affect Your Skin and Hair

How Sleep Can Affect Your Skin and Hair

Sleep is an unsung hero when it comes to health. Its amazing how much work our body is doing while we rest. It's a process that keep us healthy, energized, and happynot to mention looking good. Getting your beauty sleep really does affect how you look, but the benefits start from the inside out. Heres a deeper look at how sleep affects your skin and hair, and the aesthetic treatments you can get to enhance sleeps benefits, or make up for your beauty rest if you couldnt get your full eight hours. 

Benefits Of Sleep For Skin & Hair Health 

Aside from feeling well-rested, sleep has several benefits specifically designed to boost skin and hair health: 

Boosts Collagen Production 

Collagen, the protein that supports our connective tissue, is an essential element for keeping skin healthy, firm, and youthful-looking throughout your lifetime. Your skin produces collagen during sleeps all-important repair mode. Collagen production naturally slows as we age, a process thats sped up if you often get less than eight hours a night.  

Supports the Healing Process 

Sleep supports general physical and mental well-being to keep you healthy, and that includes your skin. Since your skin is the largest organ of your body, responsible for protecting you from environmental stressors and filtering out toxins, its important to let it recharge each night by getting proper rest. 

It Prevents Inflammation 

Quality sleep helps regulate metabolism and glucose levelsand too much glucose leads to unhealthy inflammation. Not only does inflammation speed up the breakdown of collagen, it shows up as puffy skin, especially under the eyes.  

It Supplies HGH 

Human growth hormone, which we produce naturally, supports the building of muscle tissue, strengthens bones and hair, and is a critical component of keeping skin full and healthy as you age. Less sleep means less HGH, which can contribute to thin, sagging skin and thinning hair over time.  

It Promotes Healthier, Fuller Hair  

Your hair and scalp depend on having healthy circulations. Lack of sleep stresses all of the bodys functions, including blood flow. When blood flow decreases to the hair follicles, hair loss, breakage, and damage are the end result. Additionally, the stress from not sleeping well increases cortisol levels, which can also contribute to thinning hair and less hair growth.  

Getting Better Sleep for Hair & Skin Health  

There are a lot of things you can do to get more sleep and improve the quality of your sleep. Here are just a few ideas: 

  • Set a regular sleep schedule. Going to bed and getting up at the same time every day will train your body to know when its time to relax and sleep. 
  • Invest in a good bed and bedding. A comfortable mattress and soft, welcoming sheets are absolutely essential if you want a peaceful rest. 
  • Turn off the devices. Having a TV in the bedroom or looking at your phone right up until bedtime wreaks havoc on your brains ability to shut off. Try putting the devices away one hour before bedtime and use that hour to unwind instead. 
  • Get a sleep coach. Some people have more trouble sleeping than others, in which case training with a sleep coach can help. 

Aesthetic Treatments for Better Hair & Skin 

If sleep is eluding you lately, here are the aesthetic treatments that can make it look like you get your beauty sleep every night without fail. If sleep is no problem, these treatments support the healthy processes that keep your skin and hair looking beautiful for life. 

TriBella Facials 

A shortcut to looking well-rested, TriBella facial treatments combine our three most popular technologies into one powerful device. First, an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial reduces sun damage and fades discoloration for a brighter complexion. Then, an anti-aging treatment erases fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer, more youthful look. Finally, a skin resurfacing treatment smoothes out imperfections and improves the texture of the skin. The treatments boost the skins natural production of collagen and elastin for an overall firmer, brighter, and more youthful appearance. 

Wrinkle Reduction & Skin Tightening  

Lack of sleep can make fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging more pronounced. Venus Legacy™ treatmentsdeliver targeted Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) deep below the skins surface to stimulate skin cell renewal and promote increased collagen and elastin production. The treatments use a gentle heating process to boost your skins natural processes, supporting skin health from the inside out in comfortable sessions, with no downtime. Quick and effective, these combined wrinkle reduction and skin tightening treatments rejuvenate your décolletage so it looks lifted, smooth, and firm, with no downtime.  

Skin Resurfacing 

Tired skin tends to highlight textural irregularities on the face, neck, and chest. Venus Viva™ MD skin resurfacing treatments resolve even the most stubborn issues, such as scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and stretch marks, by stimulating the skins natural healing process. Venus Viva MDs NanFractional Radio Frequency energy penetrates deeply into skins layers to trigger collagen and elastin production, the same proteins you produce in your sleep. Post-treatment, the boosted collagen and elastin levels correct scar tissue, improve textural irregularities of the skin, and restore a brighter, smoother complexion. 

Hair Restoration 

Whatever your sleep schedule, many men and women do experience permanent hair loss at some point in their lives. If youre concerned about thinning hair, a receding hairline, or balding, hair restoration can fully restore your hair. Venus Treatments offers two state-of-the-art devices for hair restoration for men and women.
