Disturbed sleep can impact almost every aspect of a person’s physical and mental health.

Disturbed sleep can impact almost every aspect of a person’s physical and mental health. This includes the health of your skin. Consistently getting a poor night of sleep can lead to a wide range of skin issues from wrinkles and sagging skin to dark circles and paleness.

You can almost immediately tell when someone hasn’t gotten enough sleep. It usually shows in their face and skin. You may notice hanging or puffy eyelids, darker under eye circles, dryness, dullness, a grey undertone, or reduced glow. This isn’t a coincidence. Poor sleep has been shown in multiple studies to be linked to poor skin health, faster-aging skin, and an increased risk of certain skin conditions.

We do so much to help our skin look great. While sleep may not be the first thing you think of when you think of skincare and skin health, it should be way up there. Sleep can have a significant effect on the health and appearance of your skin.

Getting enough sleep can help with a variety of skin issues including dry skin. Disturbed sleep impairs the skin’s barrier which leads to an increased level of trans epidermal water loss and a loss of skin hydration. This loss of hydration or dry skin can lead to a flare of other issues including eczema and rosacea.

Getting more and better sleep is sometimes easier said than done. But there is sleeping advice you can take to get better sleep and improve your skin’s health and appearance at the same time.

Booking an appointment with a dermatologist is a great way to ensure your skin’s health is on par with your new sleep schedule. At Devonshire Dermatology, we can help you build a lifestyle routine and skincare regimen to ensure your skin is at its best.
