How Sleep Makes Your Skin Healthy – OROGOLD Reviews

The amount of sleep that you get each night, as well as the quality of the sleep, has a huge impact on the health of your skin. From slowing down the aging process by quickly replacing damaged skin cells to reducing the impact of existing skin conditions, OROGOLD explains how a good sleep each night will make your skin healthier than ever.

Slows Down the Aging Process
Our growth hormones only fully function while we are asleep, and these are the same hormones that repair any damaged skin cells, damage that can be quite severe depending on how much exposure to the sun the skin has had. Without sufficient stretches of deep sleep, your damaged cells will not be repaired, and, instead, all of the small breakdowns that occur daily will start to build up, bringing on signs of aging much quicker.

Reduces Impacts of Skin Conditions
A lack of sleep causes inflammation within the body, which makes certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, even worse. Rather than being a skin disease, psoriasis is actually a sign that the body is too inflamed, and a good quality, long sleep will help to reduce this inflammation. Increased inflammation can also lead to other skin problems, such as acne breakouts and increased skin sensitivity. Since sleep helps to build up and strengthen the immune system, your body will be better prepared to fight infections, meaning that blemishes will clear up much quicker.

Moisture Levels
While you sleep, the moisture levels in your body re-balance themselves. While your skin is able to retain some moisture, any excess water in your body gets processed for removal, meaning that a lack of sleep would result in a poor water balance. This then leads to puffy bags under your eyes in the mornings, as well as dark circles. Dryness and visible wrinkles are also common.

Complexion
A chronic lack of sleep means that your skin is not able to renew itself and grow, and this leads to a dull complexion. A good sleep each night will encourage quicker your skin cells to grow faster, giving you a healthy glow that even the best of beauty products would not be able to compete with. ORO GOLD recommends investing in a silk pillowcase to boost this glow, and to make all of your night time beauty products work even better.

A quality sleep each night, coupled with good night cream products, should help to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. Your night cream should be thick enough to nourish your skin, keeping it moist while your water levels are re-balancing, but should not be so thick that it clogs up your pores, reducing the flow of oxygen into your skin. OROGOLD Cosmetics recommends feeling your face 15 minutes after applying the cream – you should still be able to feel the smoothness of it but should not otherwise be aware of it. If you are, this is a sign that your night cream is too thick. When it comes to how long you should be sleeping for each night, OROGOLD would suggest seven to eight hours, as any more than that can mean that we wake up feeling sluggish, and with puffy eyes.

How to Prevent Sleep Wrinkles – OROGOLD Reviews

Although wrinkles are one of those natural side-effects that come with age, we are all determined to put them off for as long as possible, investing in an array of anti-wrinkle creams and other cosmetic products. Although you may think that a good night of sleep will help to erase away any lines that developed during the day, this is not exactly true. After the sun has penetrated into your skin, lying with your face on a pillow in the same position night after night only results in those same lines being ironed into your face, giving you deep wrinkles at a much earlier age. OROGOLD Cosmetics shows you how to prevent sleep wrinkles.

Sleeping Position
The best way to avoid sleep wrinkles is by adjusting your sleeping position, sleeping on your back instead of your side. If you have already tried this, and find yourself back on your side in the mornings, try placing a pillow under your knees, and a U-shaped pillow around your head, to stop you from rolling over. If you are still finding it unavoidable to sleep on your side, position yourself so that the lower half of your face is not touching the pillow. This will help to stop the marionette lines, the ones that run from your nostrils to the corners of your mouth, from forming.

Change Your Pillow or Pillowcase
There are certain types of pillows available for those who prefer to sleep on their side, decreasing any physical stress that is placed onto your face. It may be worth investing in a specialty pillow that will support your neck and keep your face off the pillow at the same time. You could also try using a pillowcase that is made from satin or silk, as the slippery surface helps to reduce the friction between your face and the pillow, minimizing any bunching of fabric that would have caused deep creases on your face. Pillowcases that have copper-infused fibers are also available, and these claim to help stimulate collagen, resulting in younger looking skin.

Sleep with Clean Skin
It is important to make sure that every night before bed, you thoroughly wash your face, cleaning away perspiration, makeup and oil that has built up throughout the day. If you don’t, your pores will start to get clogged up, not only resulting in breakouts but also preventing any fresh new cells from coming to the surface. A night cream that moisturizes your face can also help to enhance your skin and repair any damage. As we age, the production of collagen in our skin slows down, reducing the elasticity, which is why, as we get older, any sleep wrinkles do not fully fade away the next day. Mature skin is also drier as it contains less oil, making any wrinkles more visible, but a good night cream can help to combat this to some extent.

For women who sleep on their side, the most noticeable lines will appear around their mouth, cheeks and chin, whilst for men, these usually appear on the forehead. OROGOLD believes that preventing sleep wrinkles is a simple step that all can take to ensure that the skin keeps its clear, youthful glow for as long as possible.
