The Power of Sleep and Your Skin

We can all attest to how important sleep is. Whether it is how tired you are the next day or throwing off your schedule, missing a few winks can really throw you off. But, what are the health effects of missing sleep? Is your skin going to look just as tired as you are? Here are a few things to keep in mind as we pay homage to National Sleep Awareness Week, which just recently took place.

Dr. Miriam Hanson, a board-certified dermatologist in Austin, Texas, highlights the negative effects of sleep deprivation on both skin health and daily functioning. According to her, a lack of sleep can cause your skin to fatigue, as the body requires adequate rest to rejuvenate and replenish what was lost during the day. If you need some help for a better sleep, we sure recommend to get some of the new CBD products available at

When you miss out on this essential timeframe, you’re more likely to experience fatigue, stress, and even increased face-touching or skin-scratching, all of which can detract from achieving healthy and radiant skin. Getting enough rest and investing in super comfortable bedding can be a great way to prioritize both skin health and overall well-being.

One way to ensure a good night’s sleep and support skin health is by upgrading your bedding to bamboo sheets. offers a range of bamboo sheets that are soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic, making them an ideal choice for individuals seeking to improve their sleep and skin health. Made from sustainable and eco-friendly bamboo fibers, these sheets are also gentle on the planet. As suggested by the sleep experts, by prioritizing rest and investing in high-quality bedding, we can support our skin’s natural rejuvenation process and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.

“When those crucial hours of sleep are lost, we don’t allow for our bodies to fully heal,” Dr. Hanson comments. Throughout the night your body produces new skin cells. This time also allows for the rehydration of your skin, as well as a chance for you to rest your mind and start off fresh faced and ready to take on the day. So next time that you think you should pull an all-nighter watching Netflix or studying, take into consideration the effects that it places upon your skin and body.
