Thanks to daylight savings time you’ve got one less hour to catch some Zzzzzz’s, making it more important than ever to use those twilight hours wisely. Arielle N.B. Kauvar, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine and Director of New York Laser & Skin Care credits a good night’s sleep as essential to maintaining beautiful skin. “Chronic sleep deprivation interferes with proper skin function and structure, leading to premature skin aging and worsening of skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema,” says Kauvar. She adds “the skin recovers and repairs itself during the deep stages of sleep, when growth hormone release is at a maximum.”
