sleeplessness - Woman Western

Want a younger looking skin? Get some sleep!
Sleep-deprived people show signs of premature skin ageing
and a decrease in their skin's ability to recover
after exposure to sun, a new study has found.
In a first-of-its-kind clinical trial, scientists at University Hospitals (UH)
Case Medical Center in US found that sleep quality impacts skin function and ageing.
The demonstrated that poor sleepers had increased
signs of skin ageing and slower recovery from a variety of
environmental stressors, such as disruption of the skin
barrier or ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
Poor sleepers also had worse assessment of
their own skin and facial appearance.
"Our study is the first to conclusively demonstrate that
inadequate sleep is correlated with reduced skin health
and accelerates skin ageing.
Sleep deprived women show signs of premature skin ageing
and a decrease in their skin's ability to recover after sun exposure,"
said Dr Elma Baron, primary Investigator of the study.
The study involved 60 pre-menopausal women between the ages of 30 and 49,
with half of participants falling into thepoor quality sleep category.
The study involved a visual skin evaluation
and participation in several non-invasive skin challenge tests
including UV light exposure and skin barrier disruption.
Additionally, participants filled out a sleep log
for one week to quantify sleep duration.
The researchers found statistically significant differences
between good and poor quality sleepers.
Using a skin ageing scoring system, poor quality sleepers
showed increased signs of intrinsic skin ageing including fine lines,
uneven pigmentation and slackening of skin and reduced elasticity.
In this system, a higher score means a more aged appearance.
The average score in the good quality sleepers was
2.2 versus 4.4 in poor quality sleepers.
They found no significant difference between the groups in signs of extrinsic ageing,
which are attributed primarily to sun exposure, such as coarse wrinkles and sunburn freckles.
