Therefore, you should engage in activities and lifestyle habits that serve to protect and improve the condition of your skin. Your skin influences your looks in a significant manner. If your wish to maintain your youthful nature, you have to protect your skin from various skin degrading agents. Good looks define you and boost your self-esteem, confidence and motivation. Your skin regenerates and repairs itself when you are sleeping. Adequate and quality sleep is not only important for your skin but also your overall health and well-being. Most people are only concerned with their external health and forget about the importance of their internal health. Taking care of your skin from the inside by engaging in healthy dieting habits is equally important.

Fewer wrinkles

Although facial wrinkles may be caused by ageing, there are various other factors that contributes to facial wrinkles such as premature skin ageing, exposure to harmful UV-rays, use of cosmetic and beauty products that have harmful chemicals and lack of sufficient and quality rest. When your skin cells shrink and sag, your skin begins developing wrinkles. During rest time, your skin regenerates by forming new collagen to replace worn out skin cells. With sufficient and enough skin collagen, your skin is less likely to get wrinkled hence it always stays plumper and young-looking. Therefore, it is important to have quality and adequate sleep to help your skin generate more collagen to improve the quality of your skin.

A glowing complexion
People may be born with a naturally dull complexion, but there are various ways that can help you in attaining and maintaining a glowing complexion. Just like any other part of your body, your skin needs nourishment and excretion of waste products. During rest time, your body boosts blood circulation in the skin hence improving your skin’s nourishment and excretion. This entire process helps you wake up to a healthy and glowing complexion, but the lack of sufficient and quality sleep makes your complexion ashen, drab and lifeless.
