Beauty Sleep Is Real . . If You Don’t Sleep Enough, It’s Not Good
Beauty Sleep is real, according to a new study. People were rated as more attractive, healthier, and friendlier when they were well-rested than when they weren't.
Beauty sleep sounds like something "Good Housekeeping" magazine made up back in 1956 and put in a list of tips for women like "Always make sure your husband has a hot meal, even if you go hungry" and "Jobs give you wrinkles."
But, according to a new study, beauty sleep is very real.
Researchers out of Sweden took photos of people after two good nights of sleep and two nights of only four hours of sleep . . . and then they had strangers rank how attractive they were in the different photos.
And the pictures where people were well-rested got way better scores. They were rated as more attractive, healthier, and friendlier than they were in the photos when they hadn't gotten much sleep.
