Rise and shine beauties! As much as you may want to keep hitting the snooze button on your alarm or stay in your warm cozy bed its time to get up and get your day started. You’ve probably thought about forgetting your responsibilities by now and turning over, but you can’t! When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to the fountain of youth. Of course CLASSY | RATCHET believes in work hard, play hard, but every queen needs her beauty rest!
Here are some reasons why sleep is so important to our beauty:
To all of our makeup girls out there, your highlight will never make you glow like sleep will. If you’re constantly sleep deprived your skin will start to look dull. Your body boosts blood flow to your skin while you snooze, which will help to give you that summer glow.
I bet you didn’t know that being short on sleep can cause the corners of your mouth to droop. When you’re tired your facial expressions can change in subtle ways, making you look unhappy, when in reality you are just tired.
It’s not just stress that can take a toll on our hair anymore. Lack of Zzzz’s can result in hair loss, breakage and even stunt hair growth. Your blood flow decreases when you’re short on shut-eye, which means your hair will get less food and will have difficulty growing.
CLASSY | RATCHET is here for a consistent diet and workout regimen. But getting enough sleep could help you maintain your weight. If you’re always tired you will constantly feel the need to skip your workout and hit the sheets. In order to stay on track with your fitness goals, try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night.
When you’re sleeping, skin makes new collagen, which will prevent sagging. With more collagen your skin is plumper and less likely to dry out or have wrinkles.
If you didn’t get enough sleep the night before, try to get in bed early tonight. Tuck the kids in, turn off your television if you have to and put your mind at ease, because the only bags a girl should ever carry are Chanel.
