Got the Skin Blahs? Get your Beauty Sleep!

Optimal Skin

We’ve all had those days, the bad hair day, the day you had nothing to wear; even though your closet is full. And then of course, there’s the day that you look in the mirror and your skin just doesn’t look right. HELP!!

Ok admit it, you didn’t get quite enough sleep, but you drank your water, ate your veggies and you removed your makeup (almost) every night. So what’s happening? Why the change? Why is your skin so fatigued looking?

As we age, stress and lack of sleep affects us internally and suddenly it shows up on our face as a dull complexion and dark circles. Sleep deprivation is one of the most stressful conditions for the skin. It raises internal toxins, one of which is known as glycotoxins. These glycotoxins deregulate the skin’s systems in charge of protecting and repairing during the sleep.

With age, stress and lack of sleep, a dull complexion becomes more apparent as glycotoxins accumulate in the skin and deregulate the natural systems of the skin. How to fix it? Use ingredients topically, that improve the skin’s micro–circulation.

CUITTING EDGE INGREDIENTS: Topical plant extracts such as the Chinese medicinal herb; Whu–Zhu–Yu, and Persian Silk Tree help to improve the micro vascular network in our skin. This in turn, helps detoxify and promote healthy cell renewal and optimal skin repair. When micro–circulation is improved, skin looks youthful, healthy and radiant.

Take a few minutes at night and your mirror will be saying “Hello gorgeous!” by morning.

The Ultimate Sleeping Beauty Ritual

  1. 30 minutes before bed. Power down the phone, computer and TV. Those bright lights keep your brain in “on” mode. And skin–wise, the furrows between your brows and the squint lines become more prominent.
  2. Wash your face. The sebum and perspiration on your skin attracts dust and grime like a magnet. Even dry skin needs a thorough washing. Mix some warm water with 2 pumps of Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser in the palm of your hand. Massage the face using your fingertips and let the cleanser actually sit on the skin for a minute, so it can dissolve the gunk. Rinse, splash rinse again.
  3. Mist face with Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist. Spray from shoulder to shoulder, allowing the mist to fall onto the face. The scent of Lavender Oil is calming and relaxing.
  4. Apply the ultimate treatment – Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum. With 18 plant extracts including Whu–Zhu–Yu and Persian Silk Tree, along with skin barrier repair ingredients to smooth fine lines and improve skin texture. Proven in independent clinical studies to increase the look of skin health by 82% in 2 weeks.
  5. Hydrate and retexturize with Jurlique Herbal Recovery Night Cream. An amazing gel–cream formula with Moth Bean Extract, a legume high in Vitamin A to improve skin texture.
  6. Pat on Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream with Arnica and Eye Bright Extracts to address dark circles and puffiness.
  7. Kiss your honey; hug your pet, and lights out. Prepare to wake up radiant.
