Why your skin needs you to SLEEP.

“Beauty Sleep” isn’t just used as a marketing term!!

Having a regular sleeping pattern is the best way to make a noticeable difference to your skin.  When you fall into a REM Sleep (3rd and 4th stages of sleep) your skin goes into repair mode and produces cells and hormones that help boost collagen production.

Sleep increases the sleep hormone melatonin.  Getting a restorative nights sleep can help accelerate the growth of fibroblasts cells, which in turn produce new collagen and elastin. Melatonin also protects skin by acting as a powerful antioxidant to fight off free radical such as damaging UV rays and pollutants.

Also while your sleeping, the production of the stress hormone cortisol is reduced. Cortisol can cause many skin issues, from thinning skin, discoloration, dryness, acne as well as redness. We all know that when we are stressed out to the max  it really affects appearance of our skin.
