Sleep your way to younger skin. Research shows a lack of quality sleep may increase the signs of aging.
No wonder it’s called beauty rest. The quality of your sleep can affect how quickly your skin ages. Researchers have found that women who sleep poorly show accelerated signs of premature aging, such as fine lines, age spots and reduced elasticity, compared to good sleepers. They also found that the skin of those with poor sleep habits doesn’t recover as well from environmental stresses, such as sunburns and moisture loss. That’s because skimping on shut-eye can weaken the skin’s ability to repair itself at night.
