We innately understand the importance of sleep to our skin health. In a Mintel Research survey of European consumers, more than 80% of women in France, Germany, Italy and Spain agree that getting enough sleep is an important part of looking after your skin. The scientific basis for this observation is solid: increased inflammatory response from insufficient sleep increases acne breakouts, skin sensitivity, and a breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, the molecules that give skin its glow, bounce, and translucency. And not getting enough sleep results in poor water balance, leading to puffy bags under your eyes and under-eye circles, dryness, and more visible wrinkles.
Circadian rhythms are a hot topic
The scientific community, including personal care product developers, are looking closely at research on the body’s circadian rhythms and how they affect the skin. During the day the skin’s primary objective is to protect itself, with thickness being at a maximum and cell proliferation at its lowest. At night the skin is focused on repair, with cell proliferation, barrier permeability, blood flow and penetration being at their highest levels. So it would appear that at night the skin would be the most receptive to a formulation which was carrying high levels of active ingredients.1
