In between your busy schedule, you may feel like you don’t have enough hours in the day to take proper care of your skin. However, you may not know that some of the best ways to fight acne is while you are asleep. NYC-based dermatologist Dendy Engelman advises that certain creams be applied right before you start counting sheep to help accelerate skin cell regeneration at night.
He explains that at night skin cells regenerate in half the time it takes them throughout the day. While they are repairing, “collagen production is boosted, harmful free radicals are destroyed, and cell damage is rectified.”
Another reason its better to fight acne while you sleep? Your cells don’t have to compete with make-up, sunscreen, pollution and all other elements that your skin is around on a day-to-day basis.
