Did You Know That Lack of Sleep Ages Your Skin?

Most people have experienced sallow skin and puffy eyes after a few nights of missed sleep.
Chronic sleep loss can lead to lack of luster in your skin, fine lines, and dark circles under the eyes. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol. Excess amounts of cortisol can break down skin’s collagen, the protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic. Sleep loss also causes the body to release too little human growth hormone. When we’re young, human growth hormone promotes growth. As we age, it helps increase muscle mass, thicken skin, and strengthen bones. It’s during deep sleep, that growth hormones are released which help normal tissue repair by patching the wear and tear of the day. Want to keep your beautiful skin and look younger? Then don’t forget to get your beauty rest!
