Are you getting enough Sleep everynight?

May 25, 2015

What happens to your body when you arent getting enough Sleep?

Our body naturally regenerates itself as we sleep.. We need around 8 hours of shut eye each night to allow it to do this. If your not getting enough, you'll see clues that you need more sleep.

Lack of sleep reduces the skins natural moisture barrier, leaving your skin flakey and dry.

Fine Lines
When we are asleep, our body releases melatonin- a natural antioxidant. If you get too little sleep, there arent enough antioxidants to help fight off wrinkle causing free radicals.

Stress hormones go mad when you are tired, bringing on pimples.

Puffy Eyes
Our body retains water when we are tired. The eyelid skin is the thinnest so it shows up more in that area.

Extra KG's
Not enough sleep can cause you to 1. Release Ghrelin which makes you hungry, & 2. Not create enough Leptin, which tells us we are full- ahh! 

Make sure your getting enough sleep everynight!
