The impact of sleeping habits on skin aging

In the fast pace of our current lifestyle, saturated with responsibilities and commitments, we are often deprived of hours of sleep. The nights, which should be sanctuaries of rest, are shortened by the demands of everyday life. In this hectic back-and-forth, our sleep routines dance in time with the demands of modern life, and it's important to understand how these variations directly affect the aging of our skin. In this article we reveal the secrets of sleep and how it influences the health of our skin! We hope to persuade you of its importance and motivate you to reconsider your habits to prioritize the gift of restful sleep.

Sleeping Difficulty

Shorter nights, travel, and emotional stress can lead to reduced sleep quality. Lack of sleep not only affects our mood and energy, but it also has a significant impact on the health of our skin. During sleep, our body carries out repair and regeneration processes, and when these are interrupted, the skin can show signs of aging more pronounced. But let's not be pessimistic, there is a solution!

Oxidative Stress and Loss of Elasticity

Oxidative stress, a process in which unstable molecules called free radicals damage cells, increases when we don't get enough sleep. This stress can lead to the loss of collagen and elastin, proteins essential for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of the skin. As a result, the skin may become more prone to wrinkles and fine lines.

All products in the Method R routine contain active ingredients that effectively combat this process: niacinamide which is present in all our products , our Antiox Serum  It is our best weapon to fight against free radicals and our night creams with retinol also have an antioxidant effect, you can choose it in comfort texture for dry skin and gel-cream texture for oily or combination skin.

Dark circles and bags under the eyes

Dark circles and bags under the eyes are visible consequences of not getting enough sleep. Lack of sleep affects blood circulation and fluid retention around the eyes, which can lead to a tired and aged appearance.

Our eye cream with vitamin K and caffeine is the perfect solution. It also contains a steel applicator that, when cold, has an anti-inflammatory effect. A marvel!

Stress Hormones and Skin Problems

The stress associated with lack of sleep can increase the release of stress hormones, such as cortisol. Cortisol at elevated levels can contribute to skin problems such as acne and inflammation, negatively affecting the clarity and texture of the skin.

All products in the Method R routines have active ingredients that balance sebum production, combat inflammation, improve skin texture and provide luminosity and hydration.
