Lack of sleep bad for acne?

If say... you haven't slept in 3 days, would it have a negative effect on your skin and acne condition? I would like your opinions on whether or not getting not enough/plenty of sleep has any effect on our skin whatsoever.

When you sleep, your whole body regenerates itself, including your skin. Not sleeping inhibits that process. Also, not sleeping is very stressful for the human organism and stress exacerbates acne. Speaking from personal experience, when I sleep well, my skin and my overall appearence looks way better. I guess that's why they call it "beauty sleep!" And when I don't get enough shut-eye, I break out, my nose gets bigger and my eyes get smaller!!! In other words, no sleep = getting beaten with the ugly stick!
