The Importance of Beauty Rest

As a professional woman who is always in front of the camera and is dealing with the public every day, I am all about putting my best face forward all the time! In today’s post I wanted to talk about the approach I take to help to look and feel my best every day. 

Sleep is your body’s natural beauty treatment. Did you know that research has shown that sleep-deprived individuals appear less healthy, more tired, and less attractive than those who have received a full night’s worth of sleep? Just as not enough nutrients or not enough exercise is bad for our health, so is the lack of sleep. It is well known that a night of sleep deprivation will cause those dreaded bags under your eyes. Long term sleep deprivation can lead to premature aging as well. So the single best thing you can do for your body and your appearance is start with a good night’s rest. Your body will thank you for it!

Start with a Clean Slate

Beauty rest is only the first step (albeit the most important step) when it comes to putting your best face forward. You definitely want to start with a clean slate in the morning and when you go to bed at night. Given my sensitive and dry skin, I have to be very careful about what I use. I am a firm believer that good skincare does not have to be expensive. When It comes to washing and moisturizing my skin, I have been using CeraVe products for years, ever since several dermatologists I have worked with recommended CeraVe.

CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser

CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser is my go to cleanser for my sensitive skin. I like use it after removing my makeup with a makeup wipe. The CeraVe hydrating facial cleanser is wonderful for my skin as it leaves it feeling soft without stripping my skin oils. Start by using warm water to wet the face first and then apply the lotion style cleanser. Work it throughout your face in for thirty seconds or less and then rinse. My skin has never felt more hydrated and moisturized!

The Importance of Moisturizing

It should be readily understood that daily moisturizing is vital for skin health. You moisturize your skin not just by the lotions and creams you use, but also by drinking plenty of water. I drink at least 8 cups of water a day! Our skin is our largest organ, and it requires regular attention to stay young and healthy. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is perfect for my dry, eczema-prone skin as it provides around the clock hydration as it helps to restore my skin’s natural barrier.

  • Also developed with dermatologists, CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream is a unique formula that provides 24-hour hydration and helps restore the protective skin barrier with three essential ceramides (1,3,6-II). The formula also contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture.
  • CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream utilizes MVE® MultiVesicular Emulsion delivery technology to help replenish ceramides and deliver long lasting moisturization with a soft, powdery feel. Only CeraVe® uses the patented MVE technology to enable a steady release of ingredients, including essential ceramides, over an extended period of time to help restore the skin barrier. This unique technology creates spheres of skin-nourishing components, which slowly unfold, layer by layer, upon application. With this continual release, skin can absorb the ingredients as needed.

  1. I love your blog!! I have sensitive skin too! I’m going to try these two Cervae products that you my recommend! My dermatologist recommended I use Ponds cleanser with Cervae daytime moisturizer 2 years ago but I will definitely try your recommendation.
