Getting into a pattern of sleeping less can be easy to do. One late night out can turn into a few in a row or study sessions can go on for hours without you realizing. All of a sudden, you find yourself getting below the average recommended sleeping time each night. According to the National Sleep Foundation, between seven and nine hours of rest is recommended. Not getting enough can have numerous adverse effects, one of which involving your skin.
Beauty Sleep Is Real
Not getting enough sleep can affect your mental and physical health, which is commonly known. However, another effect is premature aging, which is shown on your skin.
While you’re sleeping, the body rests and starts to regenerate by eliminating and replacing dead cells, which include skin and blood cells. More sleep can also lower the stress hormone cortisol levels, which can cause free-radical damage to the skin, along with other systems in the body.
Sleep has many benefits, especially for the skin. Natural sleep-induced collagen production can prevent wrinkles and sagging skin, which can keep you looking younger for longer. Sleep deprivation over time can cause rapid depletion of plumpness and elasticity of your skin. In the short-term, it can cause puffy eyes or dark circles, which is something most people have experienced at some point.
Less Sleep Can Cause Bad Skin
Aside from your body feeling tired after not enough sleep, those effects will also start to show up on your face. The skin can start to become imbalanced — which can lead to dehydration, acne, redness, and sallow complexion. The pH levels of your skin are affected when you get less sleep, which also lowers the moisture level and depletes the natural glow that your skin has.
Not enough sleep can also mean that your body doesn’t have enough time to regenerate any damaged cells from blemishes or sun exposure, which means that it’ll be more likely that you can notice fine lines and discoloration.
Britney Spears Is Blaming Her Mom for Her Conservatorship
Many people know Britney Spears from the early 2000s as she was one of the hit pop singers out there. Not only did she have many hit songs, but she also knew how to perform when on stage. Once things with Britney started going downhill, she was put under a conservatorship which the star is now revealing was all her mom’s fault because she gave her dad the idea.
Britney Spears Blames Her Mom
According to Britney Spears, her mom, Lynne Spears, gave her father the idea to be the head of the conservatorship. Britney made the news public by sharing a post to her Instagram account which included her referring to her mother as “the most dangerous animal in the world” as she silently smiles and acts clueless to the situation that is unfolding before her and within her family.
She added that even though her dad, Jamie Spears, actually started the conservatorship 13 years ago, her mom is the one that brought it all up, to begin with. Britney continued to say that her mom secretly ruined her life and she was going to call her out on it. According to her, Jamie isn’t smart enough to think of this on his own and her mother knows exactly what she did.
Britney’s Family Hurt Her the Most
As of September 29, 2021, Britney Spears’ dad, Jamie, was officially suspended from her conservatorship. It was decided by the Los Angeles Superior Court Judge that the conservatorship arrangement was now a toxic environment.
Even though Britney claims her mother was behind the conservatorship, to begin with, she has been a recent supporter of Britney’s fight against the legal arrangement. Lynn even petitioned the court to allow Britney to obtain her private legal counsel.
According to Britney Spears, her family has hurt her more than anyone will ever know and that a tell-all interview would reveal everything.
