According to the latest experiment of London scientists, the lack of sleep affects the skins appearance and the mental state of the person.
Sarah Chalmers has decided to participate in an experiment at the University of London, which explores the dream and the sleep. This experiment is particularly related to the lack of sleep and its impact on skin appearance.
Before the experiment, Sarah has undergone testing and scanning of the skin on her face.
The 46-year-old woman considers herself to look much older than she actually is. As she says, she has expressed pores, dark circles under her eyes and skin with no shine. Above all, she recently noted the numerous stains that have appeared on her chin.
In addition, Sarah notes that recently she has been very upset and nervous, a little bit clumsy and forgetful, and all that for one reason – for days she has been sleeping less than six hours, which is two hours less than the recommended eight hours of sleep.
Insufficient sleep is attributed to many business and home commitments, for example the children, as is the case with most women nowadays.
Although the eight hours of sleep is the recommended norm, more and more people around the world have five to six hours of sleep a maximum.
“I did not realize how the lack of sleep can affect my concentration, attention and memory. Now I know that the lack of sleep can also affect the appearance of my skin and my immune system” says Sarah.
Sarah believes that this experiment that lasted for several days, in which she participated was very instructive for her.
