Sleep to have a beautiful skin

We are all aware of the benefits of a good night's sleep, but many people do not understand the importance of sleep to keep our skin in the best condition possible.

Sleep is the time when the body's cells are repaired and this includes skin cells.

Studies have shown that sleep deprivation reduces a person's growth hormone levels and that it is these growth hormones that are necessary for the repair process.

The less growth hormone we have and the less the body has the opportunity to repair the damage done to the skin during the day.

The rate of new  skin cells   produced by the body doubles during periods of sleep: the more you sleep, the faster you will get the cells in your skin and the younger you look.

Without this cellular regeneration or with a reduced cellular product below certain levels, the skin will tend to become more wrinkled and lose its complexion.

Although all of this may make you think that you should spend more hours in bed, you should also consider the effects that too many hours in bed could have on your skin.

Yes, there is always something to think about and this time is the way you sleep.

Most people tend to sleep on their sides or on their faces, leaving creases on the face since the face is pushed against the pillow.

When we are younger, it is not a problem, but with the age and the amount of elastin in our skin, wrinkle marks take longer to disappear and if we continue to sleep in the same position every nights, they can remain permanent.
