New York Post: Naomi Newman-Beinart, PhD, explains how getting eight hours of sleep a night actually makes you more attractive.
She highlighted that one of the main reasons for this is due to the fact that the skin gets time to regenerate.
Dr. Newman-Beinart explained: “The skin works super hard all day to protect itself from daily aggravators such as free radicals, UV rays and daily grime and sweat.
“When we’re sleeping our skin is in recovery mode and sleep is the most important time for skin as it begins to repair and regenerate, in fact the regeneration process at night can be up to three times faster than during the day, so it is imperative to ensure you are getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep a night if more.
“Additionally, to this, Melatonin, the sleep hormone begins to increase just before bedtime, which heightens the feeling of tiredness as well as increasing our skin’s chance to repair itself naturally at night.”
