We all have been hearing and reading about how good 7-8 hours of uninterrupted, peaceful sleep is for our health and well-being. So it may not come as a surprise to you that sleep is great for our skin as well. But realistically speaking, getting 7-8 hours of blissful sleep may not be possible more often, thanks to busy schedules, work commitments, kids, and good old stress that comes with living life.
All this, unfortunately, also has an adverse effect on our skin, which of course results in dark spots, ageing, wrinkles, dull skin, among other issues. But thankfully, the beauty industry have the answers to most skin issues. So if you wake up without having enough sleep and if your skin feels like it lacks luster and shine and the youthfulness of your age, then indulge yourself in some 'me time' and self care before bed or in the morning and slather some of these face masks for best results.
