IT is suggested that you get 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night so as not to deprive your body of nourishment as sleep replenishes the nutrients that your body, brain, and skin need. During a good night’s rest, your body works to remove the dead blood cells and the dead brain cells. Your brain also gets rid of 60 per cent more toxins when you get the proper amount of sleep.

Not enough sleep can make your skin imbalanced, which often leads to redness and dehydration as lack of sleep decreases the moisture in your skin and it also lowers your skin’s pH levels, which is why your skin looks less youthful and has less glow. Burning the candle at both ends is the main reason why your blood vessels dilate, which can often lead to dark circles.

You can work out the exact amount that your body needs to function on all cylinders. by going to bed 15 minutes earlier every night and continue adding 15 minutes until you wake up and stay feeling that way all day long.
