Why Is Sleep Important To Your Face?

To many, getting a good night's sleep every single night is an impossibility. There are assignments to complete and projects to finish. Even if there is nothing to do, the stress built up during the busy day can prevent you from having a good sleep. Unless you are a princess that has nothing more to want or a person who has no ambition to work on, you will have your share of sleepless nights. And these sleepless nights will take a toll on your face.

Dark eye circles. The area around your eyes will darken. During periods of sleep deprivation, your body pumps more blood throughout your head to support brain function. The blood vessels around your eyes are engorged which causes the dark appearance. While it may be possible to hide those dark circles with some concealer, eyeshadow, and eye makeup brushes, the best solution is still to have sufficient rest. If you can, take some time for sleep during the day. Take one or two 15-minute naps during the day on your breaks. The idea is to allow your brain to get some rest so that your body doesn't feel like pumping so much blood into your head to help support your brain functions.

Acne. The body produces hormones when deprived of sleep. These hormones are the same ones produced during emergency. These hormones have the side effect of causing oil glands to become more active and alter the oil being produced which makes it more likely to plug pores which then leads to pimples or acne breakouts.

Dry skin. As previously ascribed to, sleep deprivation affects our blood circulation. Blood flow is focused towards important organs like the brain and the blood flow towards the epidermis is deprioritized. The result is that old and damaged skin cells are not replaced immediately, leaving your skin to look dry and dull.

2 Makeup Tips For A Hiking Trip

Just because you are going hiking does not mean you cannot be pretty. You can go on with your adventure and still look good enough to meet people afterwards. Here are some makeup tips for when you find yourself heading for a hiking trip.

Do not apply foundation. There are two reasons for this. The first is that you are bound to get hot and sweaty during hiking. You want your pores to be able to breathe. The second reason is that sweat ruins the foundation and you will then have to reapply. If you are going to reapply a foundation during a hiking trip, you might as well carry your entire makeup kit complete with all the professional makeup brushes. If you have something you want hidden, use a concealer. You can conveniently carry with you a stick concealer for when you need to reapply.

Do not use a lipstick. If you are really going for a hiking trip, in addition to running out of breath, you are going to get very thirsty, and very dry mouth. And most of the time, when you are exerting max effort, you will likely bite your lips. What I'm saying is that there will be so much going on with and around your mouth that any attempt at making your lips look pretty using a lipstick will be an utter failure. Use a tinted lip balm instead. It is easier to apply and doesn't turn into a mess.
