Fast forwarding the clocks brings us a lot of joy because it confirms that spring is upon us: longer days and warmer temperatures are just around the corner. All of the above are great for our moods but what about our skin? Daylight savings effects our biological wake sleep rhythm which takes a toll on our skins ability to regenerate and refresh. My skin needs all the help it can get while adjusting to the time shift. I hope you enjoy my 4 skincare tips for daylight savings time.
Fun sleep facts:
Sleep promotes collagen production, cell renewal and provides outstanding anti-inflammatory benefits. Losing an hour of sleep and disrupting our sleep pattern can wreak havoc on our skin.
According to the sleep foundation “Humans are most vulnerable to sleep deprivation in early March, as they transition from Standard Time to DST.”
Tips for your best spring skin:
1 – The difference a jade roller makes
The cold touch of a jade roller on our skin instantly energizes tired. Jade rollers provide a facial massage technique that increases circulation and decreases puffiness. This beauty tool is the ideal addition to your beauty routine while adjusting to a new sleep pattern.

2- Hiding the dreaded under eye bags
Our eyes are the first place to show lack of sleep. Under eye patches will help tighten, brighten and refresh eyes that are feeling the hour shift. For an extra eye-opening treat keep your under-eye patches in the fridge. The cold will give you added depuffing power. I am such a huge believer in the power of under eye patches I launched my own line. WINX under eye patches: boost collagen, promote under eye hydration and depuff.

3- Make collagen supplements a part of your routine
Add a collagen supplement to your morning smoothie or coffee. Losing an hour of sleep and adjusting to a new sleep pattern hinders our skins ability to produce collagen. Collagen is your skins best friend because it gives our skin a plumper fuller look which is great for preventing fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a key to maintaining healthy skin and joint elasticity.

4- Incorporate an antioxidant rich serum into your routine
Antioxidants are the most effective ingredient you can use to help your skin regenerate. in short antioxidants equal fresher, healthier and more glowing skin. Antioxidants help skin repair itself by tackling inflammation which impedes the skin’s renewal process. By reducing inflammation, antioxidants allow skin to repair itself and correct visible damage.
