Hadiths on the harms of adultery

Question

Are the following two narrations authentic:

1) Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that  Nabi (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Save yourself from zina. Zina has six things of ruin in it, three in this world and three in the hereafter. From the ruins of this world are:

The radiance of one’s face fades, sustenance becomes difficult and does not suffice for ones needs and the body wears down quicker than normal and becomes weak.

From the ruins of the hereafter are: Allah Ta’ala becomes angry, judgement will be harsh and one will burn in Jahannam till Allah Ta’ala wills’.

2) Nabi (sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said:

 ‘Iman has a dress that Allah dresses whosoever he wants with. Whenever a person commits zina, this dress is taken off him and not put back on until the person repents from his sin.’
