Dr Chris Donegan, a co-founder of Uvence spoke to BBC Radio London about how sleep affects the quality of your skin.
Not getting enough sleep each night raises your cortisol levels which can interfere with collagen production. Collagen is the protein that gives people shiny hair, strong nails, and glowing skin so without it, our bodies will suffer. Not getting enough sleep can cause dark circles under your eyes and less radiant or youthful-looking skin.
If bedtime has drifted later and later recently, we suggest moving it forward in 15-minute increments over the course of a week or two until you achieve at least a seven-hour minimum.
