The relation between sleeping and beauty has always been spread and studied… what are actually the Beauty Sleep Benefits? “Only” 8 hours are recommended!
First 3 hours – we produce the most human growth hormone to repair skin and hair. Middle 2 hours produce melatonin, a skin-protecting antioxidant. Last 3 hours: muscles relax, for skin deep recovering. Lack of (quality) sleep can lead to dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis, increased by stress hormones due to poor sleep. Sleeping well fosters better learning/memory and less weight gain.
But be careful! More than 8 hours sleeping can increase strokes’ risk! Warwick University says that sleeping too long is potentially worse than too little sleep. Anyway, chronic sleep deprivation leads to work injuries, poor alertness and performance, stressful relationships, moodiness, etc!
I used to like lots of sleep, but now… will think of the study. And will show the weekly outfit now!
Hope you have a week with smiles! Thank you for your always kind comments!
