A solid night of rest gives your complexion the time it needs to repair, so you wake up looking fresh-faced. We asked Dr. Michael Breus, “The Sleep Doctor” for his top tips on getting a good night’s sleep—and healthier skin.
1. MAKE SLEEP ROUTINES A HABIT
“Creating a ritual helps prepare you and your body for sleep by providing a time and place to focus on yourself,” says Breus.

5. EXERCISE ON THE EARLY SIDE
Getting your sweat on is the easiest way to improve sleep quality, according to Breus, “but a workout too close to bedtime will actually rev you up.” Give yourself at least 4 hours to wind down, before hitting the sack.
6. SEE THE LIGHT EVERY MORNING
Lying in a dark room after the alarm goes off isn’t doing you any favors. It takes a good 15 minutes of light exposure to regulate your circadian rhythm. “That can be sunlight, a commercially available lightbox, or even just a very well-lit room,” explains Breus.
