Some signs of this are the corners of the mouth drooping, dark circles around the eyes, sagging eyelids, red, swollen eyes, hair loss, wrinkles, dull complexion, exhaustion, complex health problems and even mental issues. Lack of adequate sleep is often caused by sleep apnea and other breathing-related health issues.
