Get Beautiful in Your Sleep
By Valli Herman
Get beautiful in your sleep. In the movies, the heroine always wakes up looking perfectly
refreshed and gorgeous. Sure, she may have Hollywood magic on her side,
but the rest of us have a potent beauty weapon too: sleep!
It turns out, there really is such a thing as beauty sleep. “Sleep
allows the body to go into several stages of non-REM and REM cycles for
restoration of body functions,” says Dr. Vermén M. Verallo-Rowell, a
research dermatologist. Further, the emerging science of chronobiology
— the study of the impact of biological rhythms and their effects on
the body — has uncovered subtle differences in skin behavior at night.
