We all KNOW sleep is important, but the reality of our busy modern lives is that most of us are running on less shut-eye than we should all too often. Sure, you can grab a triple-shot coffee in an attempt to kick start your brain and just soldier on, but did you know that not getting enough sleep can actually impact your skin and lead to premature ageing? Sadly your triple shot isn’t going to fix this one.
That’s right, “beauty sleep” isn’t just a cute phrase used by people who simply enjoy a good 40 winks. Just like every other cell in our bodies, our skin has a cycle; this is known as the circadian rhythm and it’s controlled by our internal biological clock. At different times of the day your circadian rhythm tells your cells to do different things in order to keep everything working the way it should. Overnight, when we should be getting our beauty sleep, is when it’s in repair and renewal mode. During this time, its DNA repair phase kicks in and your skin is working hard to create fresh, new cells to replace the old and damaged ones.
So, when we spend a little too much time watching Netflix into the early hours and don’t count quite as many sheep as we should, our skin can miss out on getting the full benefits of the repair and renewal phase it needs. The result? Say hello to premature ageing.
That’s where our Beauty Sleep Power Peel comes in. Packed with actives which push your skin outside of its comfort zone, Beauty Sleep Power Peel harnesses and stimulates your skin’s cycle, mimicking and supporting it to give you the full benefits of your circadian rhythm’s repair and renewal cycle, even if you didn’t catch nearly as many Zzzs as you should have.
What’s in it that makes this possible? Well first up is 14% Glycolic Acid. This AHA doesn’t just help your skin to rid itself of those old, dead cells which are stuck on the outer layer of your skin; it also helps the other ingredients to penetrate deeper into your skin, maximising their efficacy.
Next up is 0.5% Retinol which helps to support your skin’s production of new fresh layers and can also help to reduce the appearance of premature ageing signs like discolouration and fine lines.
Rounding it out is a whole raft of other amazing ingredients which work in tandem with the Glycolic Acid and Retinol, so you’ll wake to a firmer, fresher and smoother complexion.
You don’t just have to take our word for it though; The University of Queensland conducted a clinic trial on Beauty Sleep Power Peel and the results are pretty amazing.
- Type 1 collagen production increased by an average of 73%
- Hyaluronic acid production increased by an average of 157%
- Skin hydration increased by an average of 52.9%
Of course, this product isn’t just for night owls who don’t get nearly enough sleep; those of us who are heading to bed when we all know we should can reap the benefits too!
