How Does Sleep Affect Your Face

I get around 45 hours sleep a night 5 hours of sleep. three to four hours of sleep. five hours a night 96 work then you go home and eat something then like 102 or three is a all the other stuff I live far away so I get home late, I also like try to make time to workout I just have really bad insomnia and I tend to over extend myself so when I do do have the time to sleep a full night I just don't know how to even begin sleeping

to me, sleep is just something that you have to do so the quicker that you get it over with, the better I do worry it at what point will the make up sort of stop covering up my lack of sleep I think I look sort of exhausted under my eyes baggy and my eyes look a little blood shot and my skin kind of looks dull. there's definitely times when I wake up and feel like look older. I noticed that I don't get enough sleep because the

first thing I think of when I wake up is coffee. I am trying to change my sleeping habits because I know detrimental to my health and my appearance. I will never change my sleeping habits I will just figure out more ways to ingest caffeine OMG I'm so scared, I don't want to open my eyes. I sort of I recognize myself but I don't at all. COOL! Oh, closeup it's gross. I think it's more disturbing because I look younger than expected but still terrible

my skin both looks and feels tired definitely don't love how I look. I hate the under eyes, man The under eyes are the worst. This is the first time I've ever seen myself with wrinkles, I don't like it. I didn't expect the wrinkles under my eyes. I look really pale, I don't like a happy healthy person right now I said nothing would make me change my sleeping habits I think I'm a little convinced.

See myself with all those wrinkles above my eyelids. I definitely feel less invincible I realized now that these bad habits are going to catch up to me at some point. it definitely makes me want to change my sleeping habits i'd don't know if I'm actually going to.it definitely makes me wanna sleep more if this is what i'm gonna look like. A certain melancholy to the overall look that off putting. I think that's worse, that projection

to the world to look like someone who's sad that startling, also makes me wanna sleep.

Sleep Why We Need It and What Happens Without It

If you're looking for someone with a normal human sleep schedule, I'm probably not your guy. Night time is when I do all of my best working, a lot of my best playing. Being awake at 8 AM, not my thing. And while part of me wishes I didn't have to sleep at all, I definitely do enjoy it. The need to sleep is one of the strongest biological urges we have. One of the few that we really can't control. And the fact is, you can die faster from sleep deprivation than food deprivation. So it is time to investigate the science behind this thing that we do for a third of our lives.

Just try and stay awake for it. (Intro song) Even though the average person will spend 25 years of their life asleep, There's no scientific consensus as to why exactly we do it. One thing we know for sure, our brains definitely think that sleep is important. Deep in your hypothalamus, the tiny nut sized region at the base of your brain, you have a little cluster of cells that acts like a timer called the suprachiasmatic nucleus. When you're exposed to light, this little cluster busily releases awake hormones like cortisol

and suppresses the release of sleepy hormones like melatonin. When it's dark, it does the opposite. A second trigger for sleep is believed to be the build up of the compound adenosine in the brain. Adenosine is a byproduct of your neurons and other cells when they burn up adenosine triphosphate, the main molecule that our bodies use to store energy. Research suggests that when a bunch of leftover adenosine accumulates in your brain, you get sleepy. We talked about adenosine before when we went into the science of caffeine, because caffeine works by bonding to the same receptors as adenosine tricking the body into thinking it's not tired.

But when you do sleep, those adenosine levels drop as it's gradually reabsorbed by your neurons. This is partly what makes you feel rested when you wake up. So, we sleep when our brains tell us to sleep But that doesn't answer the larger question quot;Why are we wired to sleepéquot; It seems like a kind of terribly inconvenient thing to have to do. Also, super dangerous if you're surrounded by jaguars. or something There are lots of theories out there, and it's unlikely that

any of them alone is THE single answer. Instead, they may all contribute to this weird urge that we have to lapse out of consciousness. For starters, all mammals and birds sleep and other critters like reptiles, insects and fish exhibit some kind of sleeplike behavior. That even includes the millimeterlong nematode worm which experiences stress when denied rest.

Some scientists suggest that inactivity at night is an evolutionary adaptation that boosts an animal's survival rate by keeping it out of danger when it would be most vulnerable. Basically, sleep could be a way to keep still so you attract less attention. And yet, lions sleep a whopping 15 hours a day while Mr Giraffe, arguably a tasty meal for sad lion, gets less than 2 hours a day.
