It is during our sleep that the production of human growth hormone occurs in the body. Human growth hormone or HGH is what causes cell growth in the body – this includes the growth of skin cells. With too little sleep, the body starts to produce cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that actually slows down the growth of your cells and can result in dry and unhealthy skin. On the other hand, the more sleep you do manage to get, the more HGH is produced in the body. And to round it all off, the older we get, the less HGH is produced. This means that those who are older can be excused for sleeping a little longer!
