How Does Sleep Affect Skin Aging?

Read Transcript

Sleep is so important for our health and for skin ageing, it's those six to eight hours a night that really takes time for your skin to renew itself and regenerate, but if you're not getting enough sleep it's going to show in your skin, though most people the first place it shows is around the eyes. Our eyes have the thinnest skin, and so you'll start to see lack of sleep changes in the eyes first and whether that's puffy eyes, bagginess, fine lines, this is where sleep changes occur.

Now if you get enough sleep, those changes are reversible so try to get at least seven to eight uninterrupted hours of sleep every single night, for it's important for your skin.
