STOP SOCIAL JETLAG IN ITS TRACKS 02 Jul 2020Ever feel like you have just stepped off a plane from a different time zone, even if you’ve been at work all week? There’s a name for that: social jetlag.
This inexplicable fatigue is due to lack of sleep during the week as a result of modern living, such as waking up unnaturally early to fit in a yoga class before work or scrolling endlessly through Instagram late at night. Sound familiar?
This disruption in your beauty sleep cycle can have a detrimental effect on your skin health and appearance, leaving your complexion looking dull and lacklustre.
Get your rest schedule back on track with these helpful tips from our ELEMIS Co-Founder, Noella Gabriel.
- Instill a digital sunset. Turn off your electronic devices and limit blue light exposure 2 hours before bedtime.
- Keep a regular sleep schedule with a consistent bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends.
- Limit your intake of stimulants—such as caffeine—in the evening.
- Stay active. Exercise during the day is proven to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep.
