Adjusting Your Body Clock: Tips for Daylight Saving Time and Skin Health

As the clocks spring forward, many of us are bracing for the adjustment to our body clocks. For individuals with skin conditions like psoriasis, this transition can be particularly challenging, as disrupted sleep patterns can exacerbate symptoms. However, with a few mindful adjustments, you can ease the transition and prioritise your skin health during daylight saving time.


- Gradual Transition: Start adjusting your bedtime and wake-up time gradually a few days before the clocks change. Shift your schedule by 15-30 minutes each day to help your body acclimate to the new time.

- Maintain Consistency: Stick to a consistent sleep schedule, even on weekends. Consistency is key for regulating your body clock and promoting restful sleep, which is crucial for managing psoriasis symptoms.

- Prioritise Sleep Hygiene: Create a relaxing bedtime routine to signal to your body that it's time to wind down. Avoid screens and stimulating activities before bed, and keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet to promote better sleep

- Mindful Exposure to Light: Natural light plays a crucial role in regulating your circadian rhythm. Spend time outdoors during the day where you can, especially in the morning, to expose yourself to natural sunlight. This can help synchronise your body clock and improve sleep quality.

- Optimise Skin Care Routine: Pay attention to your skin care routine, especially during times of transition. Use gentle, fragrance-free products that are suitable for sensitive skin, and remember to take your AxisBiotix daily.

- Stress Management: Stress can exacerbate psoriasis symptoms and disrupt sleep patterns. Practice stress-reducing techniques such as mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises, or yoga to promote relaxation and better sleep


Remember, adjusting to the changing of the clocks takes time, so be patient with yourself. By implementing these tips and prioritising your sleep and skin health, you can navigate the clocks changing with greater ease and comfort.
