Do We Need Beauty Sleep?
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and as such is most at risk from sleepless nights, the largest notable difference being reduced quality and integrity of Collagen. Stress through sleep deprivation has been shown to affect the integrity of skin’s collagen through a specific hormone pathway, which in turn impacts the immune system.
This can result in
- Blemishes and rashes on the body, caused by reduced immunity.
- Skin inflammation, leading to wrinkles and acne.
- Increased chance of eczema.
As we sleep our bodies produce large quantities of growth hormones, which are vital to ensure healthy collagen levels, however it is also a time when we lose a lot of moisture from the skin, so it is important to rehydrate before bed!
