Sleep Deprived Skin & How You Can Help

Sleep seems to be one of those things that takes the back burner these days. With work, school, family and more, the amount of time we sleep gets less and less. We all know sleep is essential for our health, it's important to remind clients that it is important for their skin as well.

When we sleep, our bodies slow down to repair and regenerate itself. While we are dreaming of white sandy beaches and winning the lottery, our skin is able to increase the production of collagen; making getting quality sleep very important to the health and appearance of our skin.


Sleep deprived skin can result in things like dark circles under the eyes, puffiness, dry or dehydrated skin as well as a variety of skin infections (lack of sleep weakens our immune system!)

Do you go over your client's sleeping habits/patterns on their intake form? Are you checking in with them to see how they are sleeping? Explaining to your clients the importance of sleep in direct relation to healthy skin will garner a great conversation! You not only show them you are thinking of them as a whole, you also have a good opportunity to offer quality retail items.

Depending on their sleep habits and needs, you can offer everything from relaxing essential oils, candles, sleep masks and music to help them unwind and get a good nights sleep. You can also take this time to offer sunblock, hydrating moisturizers and more!

Quick Fix Add-On's For Puffy Eyes

A common problem some women experience is puffy eyes. Puffy eyes are caused from fluid build up in the tissues around your eyes. The skin around the eyes is very thin and is full of blood vessels which make it very sensitive. If it is simply eye puffiness that is not caused by other eye conditions, there are quick fixes you can offer your clients to temporarily diminish this. However, along with this quick fix of a mask or eye pad, you can educate your clients on the various causes of puffy eyes.

Most Common Causes of Eye Puffiness:
  • Not enough sleep
  • High salt and alcohol intake
  • Crying
  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • Makeup residue
  • Exposure to irritants
  • Dry skin
To avoid the causes like dry skin, makeup residue, and irritants, you can let your clients knows the importance of moisturizing not just the skin on their face, but the eye area as well, removing all traces of makeup before bed, and checking ingredients in their makeup and skin care products. For other causes, that aren't as easy to avoid, you can offer them an eye mask or pad during their treatments. It is a great add-on to increase profits and your clients will love the end result!

Quick Fixes!
