Sleep deprivation is affected by artificial light, blue light from computers, television, LED lights, and mobile Phones. Make sure your bedroom is dark when you go to sleep. Sleep disturbances are affected by eating and drinking late into the night, waking to use the bathroom, and turning on the light disturbs your circadian rhythm preventing you from falling back into a deep sleep.Lack of sleep affects NREM and REM sleep. NREM is a non-rapid eye movement and no dreams. REM sleep is very deep, your eyes and muscles make many small movements. It is the dream state.
The negative biological effect from the prolonged lack of sleep has detrimental health effects on your skin cells. It begins neurologically and depletes the new cells the body makes daily. Lack of sleep diminishes the skin's moisture levels causing dehydration and lowers the skin's pH level. The unhealthy change in the skin's PH triggers acne breakouts and rutty skin in some people and degenerative pale and listless skin in others. The degenerative condition severely slows down the collagen growth rate. When collagen levels decrease your skin loses its supple tautness, leaving the skin loose and flabby, dehydrated, and dry. The skin texture changes to oily and rutty or dry flaky and crusty.
I clipped a paragraph of an in-depth scientific study on sleep deprivation.
” While disruption of sleep for a period shorter than one day appears to have little effect on the basal rate of cell proliferation, prolonged restriction or disruption of sleep may have cumulative effects that cause a major decrease in cell proliferation, cell survival and neurogenesis. Most methods of sleep deprivation that have been applied affect both NREM and REM sleep. Available data favor the hypothesis that decreases in cell proliferation are related to a reduction in REM sleep, whereas a reduction in the number of cells that subsequently develop into adult neurons may be related to a reduction of both NREM and REM sleep.”
