Surprised at waking up all irritated, disoriented and just not yourself? It turns out that daylight saving time (DST) has a profound effect on the way you feel and look. You turned your clock ahead by an hour- now fine tune your body rhythms to make the most of it 🙂
I’m gonna soak up the sun!
Think positive- guys! Its an extra hour of sunshine. Don’t fret about getting an hour less of sleep. Think about the Vitamin D soaking possibilities you have. Replenished skin hydration, a boost in elasticity, radiance, stimulated collagen, and lesser wrinkles – that’s a lot to look forward to. If you are still worried about less sleep, ensure you expose yourself to bright natural light when you wake up. This will help your body to naturally sync its time, helping you to sleep earlier.
Strength of a woman
An extra hour of sunlight = stronger immunity. Natural sunlight is great to increase your body’s immunity. It keeps melatonin – a powerful antioxidant – up and running, fighting the free radicals. Say good-bye to risk of skin cancer and hello to the body’s natural anti-aging process. Not convinced? Practice starting your day early and schedule your daily routine accordingly. Stock up on morning sun. Have your breakfast by a sunlit window. A healthy breakfast with healthy sunshine is a great immunity booster!
I like to move it, move it!
Lack of sleep, is going to make you feel sluggish, and it’s going to reflect on your skin as well. Less shuteye can result in less radiant and sluggish skin. What your body and skin needs is a wake up work out! Indulge in a good routine of morning Surya-namaskar yoga or a healthy workout that can energize and refresh your mind, body, and senses. For your skin, try a trusted night cream or serum that’s going to workout all night and give you “good morning beautiful skin”!
Don’t worry, be happy
Adjusting to the changes when you turn the clock ahead can affect your mood. In turn, irritability can affect your skin. Exercise well. The production of the hormone serotonin while exercising helps your body adjust to changes better, keeping you happier.
Lack of sleep leads to unhealthy snacking. Therefore, when DST cuts an hour of your sleep, the tendency to reach out for that bag of chips could be higher and there goes your skincare – right out of the window! Load up on energy boosting, skin loving natural foods to keep up your energy levels high. Reach out for that Choco-banana smoothie instead– it’s a feel-good skin food for sure!
Daylight saving time beckons Springtime. Get up, move it and enjoy in the skin you are in 🙂
