Give special attention to beauty sleep. Deep sleep at night can mean good skin, because when you lack sleep, your body produces more cortisol hormone. Increased levels of cortisol can cause increased stress and inflammation in the body and damage the skin condition. The relationship between good skin condition and sleep can become a closed circle, especially if you have diseases such as dermatitis or eczema that can scratch your face during sleep, according to studies recently published in Clinics in Dermatology.
Poor sleep can lead to increased levels of stress hormones in the body, which increase inflammatory skin conditions such as acne. This can lead to an increase in itching, which interferes with sleep quality. As the vicious circle continues, skin conditions and sleep quality may deteriorate. Otherwise, when you get enough quality sleep, your skin condition improves. Good and deep sleep helps cleanse the skin, resulting in improved skin condition and sleep quality.
Here are 6 reasons why sleep deprivation damages your skin and your overall health:
- Reduces the natural beauty of your skin. Increased inflammatory cells in the body cause the collagen and hyaluronic acid molecules, which give the skin a luster, to become gray.
- Aggravates immune-related skin problems. Increased inflammation in the body deprives the body of the ability to regulate the immune system, leading not only to increased morbidity but also to immune-related skin diseases.
- Influences beauty. While you are asleep, body hydration is restored. The skin is able to recover moisture and excess water is removed from the body. Lack of sleep leads to poor water balance, which causes bags under the eyes and dark circles, as well as drier skin and more wrinkles.
- Speeds up the aging process. During deep sleep, an increase in growth hormones allows the damaged cells to recover. Without deeper sleep, this does not happen.
- Contributes to weight gain. Sleep also helps control weight, which is good for your skin. You don’t feel hungry when you sleep, and recent research has linked sleep deprivation to excessive snacking and calorie intake.
Beauty sleep is not in vain so called. It has a major impact on the body and should not be sacrificed for work that is not done or for other reasons that may wait until the next day. Let yourself rest and shine with beauty from the early morning!
