Beauty Sleep: 3 Things You Didn’t Know about Sleep and Skin

We get it. You’re busy. You’re so busy that your side hustle has a side hustle. But before you start making excuses for why you’re skimping on the ZZZs, you need to realize that there’s a price—your skin’s beauty and health.

Remember the last time you got less than 6 hours of sleep? How did you feel the next day? More importantly, how did your skin look and feel? Probably oily and blotchy.

Now think about the last time you had a day off. You slept in, didn’t you? After you got cleaned up, did you notice how soft your skin felt?

There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep.

If you’re sick and…well, tired of waking up with less-than-desirable skin, you need to start getting the sleep that your body and skin need to look and feel their best. Here are three things you probably didn’t know about sleep and your skin:

Lack of Sleep Worsens Current Skin Condition

Did you know that a bad night’s sleep can make your acne, eczema, and dermatitis worse? Now you do. That’s because when you don’t get the amount of sleep you need, your body chemistry gets thrown out of whack, and when that happens, there’s no telling what kind of reaction your skin will have.

Less Sleep = Less Pretty

When you don’t get your eight hours, your body produces an excess of hormones. These hormones can, among other things, increase the amount of inflammatory skin cells in your body. In addition to increasing breakouts, inflammatory skin cells also lead to a breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, both of which are integral to your skin’s elasticity and glow.

Aging Is Faster Without Sleep

Ever wonder how sleeping beauty stayed looking so young for the century that she was under the sleeping curse? It’s because sleep slows the aging process. When you get the proper amount of sleep every night, your body is able to regulate your aging rate at normal levels. Things like wrinkles and blemishes happen later to people who don’t burn the midnight oil too often.
