My Sleep Apnea Skincare Routine

For people with sleeping issuse like sleep apnea you might find it difficult to have a effective skincare routine because you sleep through the day. I have sleep apnea my self and struggle with hormornal dehydrated skin.

I can go to sleep at 11pm and not wake up till 2pm the next day so adding sunscreen to my routine doesn’t feel worth the effort. although… the evidence shows you should definitely add sunscreen to your face after moisturizer no matter what, you shouldn’t skip!.

You loose the most amount of water from your skin when you are sleeping (eperdermal water loss) so over sleeping can cause dry/dehydrated skin.

Make sure you drink plenty of water before you go to sleep its suggested to have 8 glasses of water per day. also to cut down of caffine and refined sugar switch to alternatives like matcha or chai tea.

wake yourself up with a cool shower as soon as you wake up then moisturise get dressed brush you teeth est

I keep my routine as basic as possible Ive tried adding vitamin C and retinol but they seem to make my skin dry and irrated.


I suggest either cerave hydrating cleanser or the la roche posey milky cleanser.

Why Are You Picking Your Skin?Reasons Why…


What is a skin picking disorder?

Stop popping your pimples

My mother always said you are going to see the devil if you keep looking in that stupid mirror all day. She wasn’t wrong .. I was obsessed with my self-image everything had to be perfect! but the pleasure and satisfaction of popping a spot calmed me down. My mum had enough of my pimple-popping she had no choice but to hide or throw away all the mirrors in the house.

1. Get A Skincare Routine

If you’re not sure where to start, I know many great YouTubers who can help! i.e James Welsh, Hyram, and Cassandra Banks but first you need to find your skin type! this can be found easily by knowing how your skin feels and looks after washing your face.

does it feel dry, oily both? notice the size of your pores if they’re small you probably have dry skin the bigger the pore the oil you are producing.

Skincare, facewash, cleanser, hygiene,

2. Cut your fingernails

you should cut your fingernails anyways but to keep the temptation away it is so much harder to pop a spot if you don’t have nails. don’t go investing in any type of pimple popping tool either! they can cause more damage If not use properly I suggest going to see an aesthetician.

3. Keep Your Hands Busy

Finding a new hobby can help distract you from thinking about your skin, most of the time being anxious or bored can influence bad habits If you thinking about your skin put on some calming music and start cooking and cleaning.

Invest in Fidget Toys

Fidget toys such as spinners are great for helping wind down I love chilling with a coloring book before I go to bed.

3. Pimple patches

Pimple patches helped me from picking my skin during the night while I was sleeping they work like a treat! they also help the skin heal.

Watch pimple popping videos instead

mental health, depression, anxiety

while this might encourage you to pop your spots it just might satisfy you enough

4. Stroke Your Face and Neck with your palm

I’m slightly Autistic and the way I find comfort Is by stroking my skin, it sounds weird but it makes me feel safe. Instead of using your nails use the palms of your hands to stroke and tap.

5. Breathing Technics and Yoga

counting to 10 and stretching for a few mins is a great way to realize stress, having a balanced lifestyle will help your mental state of mind taking it one step at a time.

6. Wear Light Natual Non-Comedogenic Make up

Out of sight out of mind as long as you do a second cleanse before you go to
