When we lay our heads to rest each night, there's much more going on than dreaming. Times of sleep are the body’s opportunity to repair the damage it sustains while we are about our business throughout the day. In times of slumber, the body’s level of human growth hormone, known as somatotropin, is increased, which aids in healing cells and tissue throughout your body, including your skin.
Our skin is constantly being taxed by various internal and external factors. Pollution, sun exposure, free radicals, poor diet, dehydration, and stress all negatively impact one of the body’s vital organs- our skin.
