The sleep conversation seems tired: You know you're supposed to score eight hours of z's a night (and quit it with the iPad in bed, and stop pushing your bedtime back, and wake up at 7 a.m. even on weekends), but let's be honest: We're all guilty of neglecting shuteye. In fact, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 35.3 percent of us report sleeping less than seven hours in a 24-hour period, and 37.9 percent have unintentionally fallen asleep during the day. And so the cycle goes. We're all tired. The CDC even considers insufficient sleep a public health problem. But spending less time in la-la land isn't just detrimental to your physical health (lack of sleep has been linked to serious issues including diabetes, heart disease, depression, and obesity)-it wreaks havoc on your skin, too.
