does one's sleeping habits effect acne?

for example... if someone dosn't get alot of regular sleep

on a fixed sleeping schedule?

jus wonderin cause i've heard that lack of sleep can mess up your body in

a lot of ways.

also how about alcohol?

i've heard alcohol isn't good for the skin. any time i drink vodka i seem

to breakout, maybe just a coincidence.

any thoughts on these..?

(nice board by the way, alot of cool people here with crazy amounts of knowledge)

From personal experience I can tell you that sleep definetly affects acne.

When I used to only have a couple of hours of sleep at night, I used to wake up and find my skin in an extremely bad condition, enlarged pores and more acne! My best friend has had similar experiences.

Don't know about the alcohol question.

sleep definitely makes acne worse. i didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night, and I woke up with a red splotch on my nose. But, I find that when I sleep well, my skin is so nice when I wake up in the mornings. Alcohol also messes up my skin. If I drink too much, then the next morning, my face is all splotchy and gross.

yeah i def think sleep or lack of sleep does effect the acne. If possible try and work out how much sleep you roughly need as a good nights sleep, it differs from person to person. When you have found out how many hours you need try your best to stick to it.

Before I used to sleep a few h. in days (to much to work and party after) and my skin was flawless now if I do not get enough sleep I see that my skin looks more tired but I do not get pimples.
