It's simple, sleep is essential. It accounts for a third of our life, and although it won't prevent breakouts, it's vital to maintain a healthy immune system which fights infection and helps our body perform its routine of maintenance, regeneration, repair damage and to reduce high levels of cortisol. A good nights sleep (between 7 and 9 hours depending on your needs), together with a healthy diet, exercise, and a rigorous skin care routine, are essential to maintain healthy skin.
The simplest good deed you can do for your skin may surprise you: sleep! Scientists and mothers around the world agree that a good night's sleep can do wonders for your complexion. A healthy, well-rested body has the resources to build a strong immune system. While a robust immune system won't prevent acne altogether, it can help fight infection so your skin clears up more quickly. Luckily, your body isn't picky; uninterrupted sleep in the daytime is just as beneficial. So if you work late, sleep late and try to maintain a regular schedule.
