Sleep Matters

Do you feel rested when you wake up in the morning? For most Americans the answer to this question is no. Making sleep a priority with our busy lives can be a challenge, but it is worth the effort. Here are just a few consequences of not getting enough sleep:

1. Not enough sleep makes us more stressed at work.
2. Not enough sleep can increase inflammation in the body causing an increase in acne breakouts and detract from your skin's natural beauty.
3. Lack of sleep can accelerate the aging process by decreasing the body's ability to repair damaged cells in our skin.
4. Poor sleep may contribute to weight gain.

And the list goes on.....
