We’ve all heard about getting our beauty rest. But it isn’t just a fun phrase. Getting adequate sleep helps us not just feel more alert and be more focused, but it does something else – it makes us look better too.
Sure, we have also heard that beauty is only skin deep. However, if you have sleep apnea, or just trouble sleeping in general, then think about how poor sleeps, every single night, can affect both the way you look and feel.
When you don’t get quality sleep, you may start to look drawn and pale. Over time, your face may start to look haggard. You most likely will get dark circles under your eyes. And that is just the start. Poor sleeps will also affect your energy levels, and that will show in the way you walk, your posture, and overall body language. What’s more, when you don’t look your best, you don’t feel great about yourself either. It becomes a nasty cycle.
So, if you have sleep apnea, what can you do to look and feel your best? First, use your CPAP machine every night. This machine keeps your airways open while you sleep so that you can sleep without interruptions. Next, eat a well-balanced diet and get regular exercise. This keeps your body operating optimally. Finally, if you have questions about sleep apnea or your health in general, make an appointment with your doctor. Being healthy keeps you looking healthy.
