Aim for 6 to 8 Hours Each Night

Everyone needs different amounts of sleep, but your goal should be to get six and a half to eight hours of quality sleep each night. That allows time for sleep to stimulate growth hormones, which promote fibroblast health (helping to maintain the structural integrity of connective tissues) and allow more production of collagen and elastin to keep your skin taut and vibrant. According to the authors of the Swedish study, people are programmed to pick up on exhaustion and are less attracted to it, because of the health problems and lower life expectancy associated with long-term sleep deprivation.
