I don't have any facts...but i also think sleeping better will improve your skin.

The more time your body is asleep the more time it has to regerate your body like skin/health etc.

Why do you think you recover faster when your ill if you sleep more often than normal?.

Skin regeneration has nothing to do with acne.

The time you go to sleep means nothing -- if you put me in a dark room at 5am and I slept until 1pm, I wouldn't be any worse off. Your body doesn't know what "time" it is; time is a human invention.

Interesting notion.
However, this is simply not true. Our body has an internal clock syncronized with day and night. Certain hormones (like cortisol) are released in the morning and others are released at night. For this, and many other reasons, you sleep quality is significantly influenced whether you sleep at day or night, or worse; if you have an ever changing sleeping pattern.
There is plenty of research out on this topic, and if you dismiss that try working night shifts for an extended period of time and you will know this is true.

Wrong. Our body synchronizes to sunlight, not to night and day. This is why people in Alaska are pretty asleep for 5 months a year. The time we go to bed means nothing -- it's the added part of the sunlight that affects us. But it's still not the time that matters; if the sun came out at 1pm, it'd all be relative.

I guess u really won't believe anything we say, even if some have said it helped them.

by the way, our bodies pass motion, losing water this way and also through perspiration. Even if we don't replenish the amount of water we lose. Your body gets dehydrated and your skin also loses moisture. simple enough..?

good luck.

I think Ben is making most sense here.

WTF creamy infant stools? Seriously, what were you thinking Jeanie?

was just talking about what aggravates acne (besides keeping late hours).
