Anyone who has rolled out of bed in the early hours, staggered into the bathroom, and caught a glimpse of themselves in the mirror might be predisposed to assume that the ancient advice connecting sleep and looking good is not entirely on the up and up.
However, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that getting a decent amount of shut-eye every night is an essential part of any skincare and health strategy.
To be clear, we’re not talking about rigidly insisting on forty winks in the late afternoon to replenish and revitalize before partying until 4 and getting up at 7 to go to work.
The key is sufficient and consistent sleep, and the avoidance of both sleep deprivation and building up a sleep deficit.
Evidence shows that sleep-deprived people are judged as less attractive by their colleagues. In a Swedish study that took photos of people after a good night’s sleep and after they had been deprived of sleep for 30 hours, the former photos were considered more attractive by observers.
So far, so obvious. No one looks good after a 30-hour stretch of sleeplessness. This writer can barely function after 12 hours without nodding off, so looking sparkling and fresh after 30 is definitely out of the question. However, sleep deprivation doesn’t have to occur all in one go. Cutting your ideal sleep time by a couple of hours a day over the course of a few days will have the same effect as a 30-hour deprivation.
The body needs sleep to replenish itself and carry out essential maintenance work. If you deny it that, you’ll start to look rough around the edges in no time at all.
It’s easy to talk about how good a skin care product is, but when it all boils down to it, that’s all it is – talk. At Dr. Denese, we understand that with so many choices available, it takes more than just words to truly convey the quality of a beauty product. That’s why we decided to put our products to the test and examine just how effective they are at addressing a variety of common skin problems. We conducted a consumer study with 10 participants and asked them to use one of our best-selling products our Advanced Firming Facial Pads. Then, we asked these participants to report how the products worked on problems such as dry lines, wrinkles, and the overall look and feel of the skin. Here’s what we discovered.
Our Advanced Firming Facial Pads is an innovative product infused with a unique cocktail of ingredients that, over time, delivers a profound firming effect. Each pad delivers the perfect dose of exfoliation, improves radiance, evens out skin tone and improves clarity. It was scientifically developed to dramatically reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and to drastically shrink the appearance of pores. The Advanced Firming Facial Pads are perfect for people with dull, lackluster, or uneven skin tone, a lack of radiance and firmness, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
So how did it stand up among our participants? Of the 10 people involved in the study, 80% saw more firmness and elasticity in their skin, 90% experienced a more toned, firm skin texture and every single one of them reported a clearer, more radiant looking skin.
Why did we get such fantastic results? It’s simple. All of our products are professionally designed using a variety of scientifically proven ingredients, each of which contributes to the skin in different ways. The result is a superior line of skin care products that gets real, measurable results. Just ask the 10 happy folks who participated in this study. They haven’t stopped thanking us!
