Sleep is also the body’s natural beauty treatment. A good night’s sleep can mean good skin health because when you’re sleep-deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol, Elevated levels of cortisol can lead to increased inflammation in the body. Increased inflammatory cells in the body lead to an increase in the breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, the molecule that give the skin its glow, bounce, and translucency. So, sleep presumably is more effective than some other treatment you could buy. A recent BBC study also linked healthy sleep to better alertness and increased productivity during the day.
