It’s been a long week at work, so Friday night, you do the sensible thing by going to bed early and sleeping in with the view of waking up feeling fresh and energized. But when you wake up the next morning your body feels heavy, your brain is still lying down and you even have faint headache. If too little sleep is a problem, then why is extra sleep a terrible solution?
This is possibly the No. 1 influencing factor for premature aging. Fine lines and wrinkles are also referred to as worry lines. Stress doesn’t just make you anxious, it releases a toxic hormone into your body, ageing your skin. De-stress using aromatherapy calms the mind and body. Give yourself a 5- to 10-minute face massage which relaxes your skin muscles, exercise regularly, or meditate weekly.
You need at least seven to eight hours to let your skin cells renew overnight. When you don’t get enough rest, it can take a toll on your skin, causing it to be dull and dry, leading to premature aging. A lack of sleep also causes you to have dark circles around your eyes, making you look older. Set yourself a sleep regime to allow your skin to heal itself.
