Is a full night's rest the secret to great skin?

Is a full night's rest the secret to great skin?

When it comes to anti aging skin cream, products like Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream can have a restorative effect on your complexion and help stimulate collagen synthesis, which could be vital in your efforts to keep Father Time at bay. Yet while effective products like these should be important parts of your beauty regimen, experts suggest that the best thing you can do for your skin is get a good night's rest.

According to dermatologist Harold Lancer, six to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep can ensure you give your body time to experience the five stages of this process. In turn, a full evening of rest can have untold benefits on your complexion.

"During hours of sleep, cortisol and insulin production inversely peak so that collagen 1 production is accelerated," Lancer told the LA Times. Collagen 1 is crucial to firming up epidermal function and can help your skin retain moisture better.

The fourth stage of sleep - referred to as Delta Sleep - is the period when you're likely to have the deepest rest. Growth hormones reach their apex during this time and can go to work initiating cell repair and tissue renewal.
