Sleep for Healthier Skin: What You Need to Know
Sleeping Beauty was definitely on to something. According to board-certified sleep specialist Michael Breus, PhD — a.k.a. the Sleep Doctor — getting less than 6 hours of sleep per day will affect the way your skin looks. Here are the seven skincare benefits of getting enough rest — just make sure you don’t fall asleep before your nighttime skincare routine

Sleep for Healthier Skin: What You Need to Know

1. May be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth

While you’re catching some zzz’s, your body goes into repair mode, to recover and heal itself. To keep your youthful glow from fading away, the key is to get enough shut-eye.

Our expert’s tip is to start getting 1 to 3 more hours of sleep per day.
Within 2 to 3 weeks, people will notice that you’re sleeping better by the way you look,” Breus says.
2. Food for your skin

When you’re sleep deprived, you’re also depriving your skin of nourishment. That is why, even with the very best diet, if sleep is off, you’re wrecked. Sleep is food for your skin and responsible for that healthy glow you’re craving to have.
3. Keeps your skin balanced

Lack of sleep leads to dehydration, redness, breakouts and lower PH levels. With this loss of moisture and PH imbalance, your skin loses its radiance and looks more uneven and less youthful.
4. Helps reduce dark circles

Whether due to insomnia or simply a late night, lack of sleep and fatigue are the main reasons why your blood vessels dilate and dark circles appear or become more noticeable under your eyes. Here are more ways to treat dark circles from the inside out.

5. Products Work Better

If you want to get the most out of your skincare regime, don’t skimp on sleep. When you sleep, your skin has a more consistent blood flow, and this allows it to take full advantage of the ingredients in your beauty products. Your makeup may even last longer as a result too. 
6. Fewer Wrinkles

Your skin produces new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging and improves skin resilience. Experts believe that sleeping only 5 hours a night can cause twice as many wrinkles as sleeping 7 would. So when it comes to wrinkles, the best free treatment out there may be resting more.
7. A Glowing Complexion

Lack of sleep will make your complexion look lifeless instead of glowing and radiant. The reason is that blood irrigation is boosted while you sleep. To avoid dull looking skin and flaunt youthful rosy cheeks, the best tip is to never skip your beauty sleep.
