The science of beauty sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep will boost your health and energy levels as well as save your skin. When you go to bed, your body produces more melatonin, which repairs damage to the skin caused by stress and ultraviolet rays. The time that you sleep is as important — and maybe even more vital — as the number of hours that you sleep. The deepest and most regenerative sleep occurs between 10pm to 2am, and if you’re chronically deprived of that period of sleep, you may still feel lethargic when you wake up, despite having more than eight hours of sleep.
