Beauty Sleep Breakdown: 3 Tips To Help You Sleep Better And Renew Skin

Close

Skin looking a little tired and fatigued? Want to add some beauty to your sleep? We've tapped Dr. Vish Banthia, founder of ZendyBeauty to help us maximize this time of R&R so you can awaken to the best skin possible. Remember these three simple ways to help maximize your beauty zzz's, delivered to you straight from the expert himself.

Replenish. Not only does moisturizing your skin have a soothing effect, it also helps prevent dehydration, which contributes to the visual signs aging. "Look for a cream that contains hyaluronic acid (HA)," Dr. Banthia says. "Slather on this natural component of skin's connective tissues, to hydrate and firm up skin cells." Our skin uses sleeping hours to heal itself from the day's damage. When you drift off, it gets the chance to improve, so use a good night cream and get great skin all with your eyes closed. Recommended: Olay Regenerist Serum ($20).

Repair. Collagen is a protein that makes up the connective tissues of the human body. As we age there is a loss of collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Dr. Banthia suggests to "apply vitamin C to help promote build-up of collagen." This powerful antioxidant has been shown to minimize fine lines and, in some cases, pigmentation. Recommended: The Aloe Source Vitamin C Antioxidant Crème ($40).

Renew. When we are children our skin turns over approximately every 14 days. As teens, our cells turn over approximately every 21 to 28 days. "But as we age, cell turnover slows down to 30 to 40 days, and after we reach 50 and older, cell turnover can slow to 1-1/2 to 3 months," Banthia explained. The solution? Retinol. "Products with retinol help to promote cell turnover so that skin is constantly being refreshed. Lavish richly to improve fine lines, texture, and skin tone," the physician said. Recommended: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum ($20).

For faster and longer lasting results, consider microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Combined with effective products, these corrective treatments provide optimal results. Visit ZendyBeauty to find the best beauty treatments for the most affordable price near you.
