In order to look your radiant best, make sure you get at least seven to eight hours of good sleep each night. Melatonin, our sleep-hormone, counteracts stress and acts as a free-radical-destroying antioxidant.
When you’re not catching enough Z’s, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol. Heightened levels of cortisol can lead to inflammation in the body, harming the quality of your skin and leading to an increase in the breakdown of collagen, not to mention hyaluronic acid, which gives your skin its glow.
Because tired skin sags, bags and loses luster, it’s important to give your body and skin the time it needs to repair, restore and rebalance so that you can wake up feeling, and looking, like a million bucks!
