Did you know that being glamorous and stylish isn´t all about makeup, clothes and accessories? There´s one beauty secret that can give you the radiance and beauty more than what makeup can give – that´s Beauty Sleep.
Today is Friday and as I´ve promised, one post on Fridays will be spent giving tips on how to pamper and love ourselves, otherwise called “the secrets of gleeful fashionistas”. We have so far talked about the simple ways to treat yourself for a smile and how to pamper yourself inexpensively.
Have you observed that when you get a good night sleep, the next morning your skin glows and your face looks fresh? However, when you go late to bed, you´ll notice that your skin is dry and you somewhat look haggard the next day?
There´s an explanation why a good night sleep is called beauty sleep. A good night’s sleep makes us feel more invigorated and energized. This is because when you go early to bed, you´re able to complete several series of sleep cycle.
Typically, early in the nightime sleep cycle, people have a surge of growth hormone. Secretion of growth hormone helps repair and rebuild body tissues like muscle and bone. The body is said to do fixing and repair at around 10:00 to 11:00 at night. So when you go to bed at midnight, you basically missed the repairing session for your beauty.
I also observed that when I get beauty sleep, I´m in a better mood the next day and I have good concentration. However, if I lack good sleep, I´m usually in bad temperament and I don´t have focus.
No matter how much makeup you put on, it´s difficult to mask your lack of beauty sleep. This is especially true if you´ve missed it for a series of nights.
Our beauty tip for today: Get the most of Beauty Sleep for a radiant more glowing skin and a better mood.
Tell me, Creative Fashionistas, how often do get beauty sleep?

Awesome post! I didn’t know sleep was so healing! I wonder if there are people with different repair times than others. My mom and aunts are all hospital nurses (working nights) and I don’t think they’ve ever been in bed at 10 or 11 p.m., at least not since they were in college, lol. I would be curious to know if their repair time has been altered due to their daytime sleeping pattern…I might have to look that up!
That´s great thoughts, Jennifer. I might as well find that out. Let me know if you get the answers first. 🙂
