2. Snooze early (where possible) We’ve all heard it all before, but it's called beauty sleep for a reason. Even if you feel time poor, sneak in a nap where possible. Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you can look washed out if you only get a few hours of sleep. It’s the best time to rejuvenate your skin as your body's cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this is when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it needs to do a good job. Plus, studies show that those who sleep more live longer, so really, it’s a no-brainer. 3. Give your skin a sip of red Who can say no to a glass of red? Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant and polyphenol found in red grape skins, has been found to prevent the lines, wrinkles, and sagging caused by environmental aggressors like pollution and second-hand smoke. It can be even more powerful than Vitamin C. Whether you use a (natural) Resvertatrol-infused serum each night, or sip on a glass of vino a few times a week, just know that it’s working wonders on plumping up lines and smoothing skin texture – so sip away!
