2. Your skin becomes imbalanced, which leads to a dehydrated complexion, redness, and breakouts.
Not only does not getting enough sleep negatively affect your body, it affects the moisture levels in your skin, decreasing them and also lowering your complexion’s pH levels, which is why your skin looks less youthful and has less of a glow.
When your skin’s pH levels drop, they create an imbalance, causing your skin to not be able to produce the moisture it needs, so it makes it look drier. It can also create unnecessary redness, leaving your skin uneven and even trigger breakouts. That’s why using skin care products that keep your skin at a slightly acidic level (so it keeps moisture in and bacteria out), like Phace Bioactive, and monitoring the amount you sleep is an absolute critical component of your beauty regimen. But you may need more or less than eight hours, Dr. Robbins says. To figure out the exact amount your body needs to function on all cylinders, go to bed 15 minutes earlier every night and continue adding 15 minutes until you feel wide awake all day along.
