INTRODUCING: Sound Sleep Cocoon
Dermalogica just dropped a new product! Not only could it be our next blessing, but a fresh reminder: To ensure we look our very best…..we need 7 hours of sleep every night. Folks these days are working harder than ever and finding it more and more difficult to put the phone down, calm the mind and fall asleep. Not only are we mentally our best with a good nights rest, but also LOOK our best. If we’re going to look great (and use photoshop less) with age, we have to make a strong attempt to revert back to the basics of health and skin care. SO, here is your healthful reminder along with introduction to Derma’s new blessing.
WHILE WE’RE AWAKE:
On a daily basis our skin is at risk for damage! Sure, you may of cut smoking and sunbathing from your lifestyle, but the unfortunate truth is that you’re still very much at risk. For example: pollution filled with free radicals that we can’t see or avoid AT ALL are also to blame for aging and dull skin. How is that fair? We didn’t pollute this Earth! Well, actually we did. Maybe this is Mother Nature’s way of repaying us?
ALSO, the everyday use of “irritants” are a common factor. These being your household cleaning supplies – bleach, detergent, ammonia, etc. If you haven’t hopped on the organic cleaning product train, now may be the time to do so. This also seems less than fair, as these products have been deemed safe for human use.
So, how can we avoid the unavoidable? We can’t walk around in plastic bubbles to avoid free radicals OR completely stop cleaning our homes! The answer is: we can’t. However, we CAN do our skin a solid service by considering it to be a “nocturnal being”. Like our other organs, the skin is working to protect us and maintain our lives all the time. BUT, it’s said to do it’s best work at night while we’re asleep.
WHILE WE’RE ASLEEP as told by DERMALOGICA:
DNA repair, cellular detox and cellular production all rev up while we lie idle between the sheets. “The body uses sleep time for internal housekeeping,” explains Annet King, Director of Global Education Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. “This is when we process nutrients, detoxify, renew and recharge, so giving your body ample time to accomplish all this is critical for keeping your skin — not to mention your overall health — in peak condition.”
Bottom line: If you’re not getting enough sleep — an average of seven hours a night — you are depriving your body of its requisite downtime. This accelerates the skin aging process and, as King says, “If your body is chronically deprived of sleep, the effects become physically and visibly noticeable.”
