Why You Don’t Look Great After A Good Night’s Sleep

So, you slept great! You get up and look in the mirror and gasp. Here’s what happened while you were sleeping!

3.Wrinkles From Sleep

A couple of things happen to our skin. When we sleep our face tightens and our skin can lose elasticity. Also, repeated pressure (as laying one side of your face on a pillow), promotes collagen breakdown.

Quick Fix: Massage the areas gently and tap until the wrinkles begin to fade. These actions increase the circulation.

 

2. Puffy Eyes

Our bodies are made of between 55%-60% of water. When we sleep, that water gets redistributed. Unfortunately, part of where it pools is under our eyes.

Quick Fix: Put some cucumber slices over your eyes. The ascorbic acid and caffeic acid brings down the water retention.
