Beauty Note: Sweet Dreams

There's a reason they call it "beauty sleep". Getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night can actually improve your appearance. While you're dreaming of Prince Charming, your own magical body releases human growth hormones, which help you body create collagen, which gives your skin strength and elasticity. Also, while you are sleeping, your skin cells are regenerating and all the muscles in your face that create wrinkles begins to relax.

While the recommended hours of sleep you should be getting each night is between 7 and 9, this just simply isn't a reality for some of you busy beauties. So just think of this as a reason to catch up on weekends. According to FITNESS Magazine, when you have been asleep for only 5 hours “Your skin’s temperature reaches its lowest point and your muscles relax, giving skin its deepest recovery.” So hit the snooze button and dream a little longer.
