It’s no mystery that sleep is essential to achieve that healthy and perfect skin. Science has confirmed that beauty sleep is indeed a necessity, as every cell in our bodies, including skin cells, use this time to recuperate and regenerate. More specifically, nighttime is when fresh, healthy cells rise to the skin’s surface and the damage accumulated over the course of the day is repaired. 

Fortunately, the skin recovers from sleep deprivation rather quickly, even though a sleep marathon isn’t the solution. Too much sleep has a negative impact on the skin as well, and can lead to cell breakdown. Of course an effective skincare regimen can help mitigate the effects that our hectic, stressful lives may have on our skin, but making “beauty sleep” a priority is essential for a youthful, healthy, radiant complexion.
