What's the healthiest sleeping hours for my graveyard shift?

What's the healthiest sleeping hours for my graveyard shift of 10:45 PM to 5 AM?

Hey, ya'll. I'm new here. Joined mainly because of this problem, but I plan to stay around and go to all the forums here as I have a lot of issues this place may have answers to.

Anyways, I have been working till 5 AM the past 2 weeks and have seen it taken dramatic tolls on my appearance and state of mind. Increased acne and severe dark circles under my eyes have come to pass and that is NOTHING compared to the way I feel on the inside. I feel like ****, tired, insane, easily angered and just terrible.

I think the problem is that I am sleeping from 5:30 AM to 1:30 PM or 2 PM, but that's where I need all your advice.

I hear that every hour before midnight of sleep is twice as rejuvenating as the hours after. Does this mean it would be healthier to do my sleeping from 2 PM to 10 PM?
