Want better skin? Sleeping beauty might know the secret.

Want better skin? Sleeping beauty might know the secret.
At Minimis, we’re all about ease. So if there’s any easier way to achieve happy, healthy skin, of course we’re going to let you in on it. You literally don’t have to lift a finger. And you’re already doing it every day.

It turns out that good sleep is one of the most important yet overlooked natural beauty tools. Your skin actually has superpowers to protect you during the day, and heal you during the evening!

A study found that people who slept seven to nine hours a night had skin that was more moisturized and that could protect and heal itself better after being exposed to UV light.

How does it work? Just like all your other organs, your skin also has an optimal functioning time in the day.

The evening is actually when your skin is working the hardest!

9pm to 11pm is the time when skin is most able to absorb topical treatments and DNA repair is boosted! Melatonin is an amazing hormone that during the day fights against UV damage, and at night, enhances your skin's ability to heal itself.

Our skin's cell regeneration can TRIPLE overnight, meaning it's more active, more permeable and warmer, making it more receptive to the skincare products you apply. That’s why detoxifying and cleansing your skin is vital to remove traces of environmental pollutants that have accumulated throughout the day, so your skin can work harder for you!

But on the flip side, being more permeable also means moisture can very easily get out.

So don't forget that moisturizer! And you know where to get yourself a good one that's free of harmful ingredients and gets you waking up with happy, glowing skin.

Can sleep really give me glowing skin just on its own?

We wish we could say yes, but we really encourage you to see skin health from a holistic point of view. There’s no one solution to it. We would always recommend to balance a healthy sleep routine with a healthy day time routine of applying a good SPF, drinking enough water, and eating well.

Our tips on creating a good sleep routine

Make sure you create a nice relaxing bedtime routine, get into comfies, and let your skin do its job for you!
  • We love using the Gua sha to help boost circulation and also give ourselves a gentle massage at the end of the day.
  • Before putting on M04 The Rejuvenator, we like to rub the cream between our palms and take a deep inhale and exhale. The soothing scents of lavender, rosemary and bergamot always relaxes us!
  • Be mindful about screen time after dinner, and start winding down as early as possible. No checking work emails! We invite you to switch off your devices once in the bedroom.
  • Set regular bed times and wake times. Our bodies thrive on routine and this will give your mind and body the best rest it could ask for.
