Sleep is essential for a healthy skin

Why getting enough sleep is more important for healthy skin than ever before

You've likely heard it time and again – sleep is related to skin health. But did you know its not just a myth and that it's more important than ever to get enough sleep?

Sleep and skin: How they relate

The consequences of lack of sleep go far beyond moodiness and judgment errors. Over time, your skin takes a hit, as well. Skin can becomes pale and dull, which really won't complement that new outfit you bought!

Another long-term effect of getting little sleep is, well, goingto make you think twice about staying up late tonight. You see, your skin can start to age faster when you don't sleep enough – true story! That's because the outer layer of the skin (the stratum corneum) doesn't have time to recover from the wear and tear of the day.

That means your skin gets dry, fine lines start to appear, and your skin droops as it misses out on moisture it craves. Um, no thanks! And that's not all – there's also the puffy eyes and dark circles around the eyes.

Beauty sleep: How to get it

So, what to do? Firstly, how much sleep do you need? Our dermatologists recommend 7 or 8 hours a night. That gives your skin time to do its repair work, helping give you glowing skin with good elasticity. Get that moisture your skin wants, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. For an extra boost, try a skin or chemical peel treatment.

Get your skin looking its best with a quality sleep tonight.
