We've all heard the expression about "getting your beauty rest" – well, it's true! Getting the right amount of sleep can make a huge difference in keeping your skin (along with the rest of you) healthy
When you sleep, your body spends more of its energy on replenishing skin cells and producing important things like human growth hormone and collagen.
This is why babies and teenagers sleep so much – their bodies are busy growing. But long after the teen years, we all still need good healthy sleep!
According to the National Sleep Foundation, teens (age 10 to 17) need at least 8 1/2 hours every night, and sometimes more depending on lots of factors such as their activity.
Adults need between seven and nine hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep per night.
