You’ve heard the terms ‘beauty rest’ or ‘beauty sleep’ – but did you ever wonder if sleep really does lead to beauty? Well, wonder no further. New research has shown a link to getting a good night’s sleep – and looking more attractive the next day.
The research, conducted by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, took photos of individuals after a good sleep and after being sleep deprived. Observers judged the faces of sleep-deprived participants as less healthy and less attractive.
So if you’ve got a hot date or are trying impress for a job interview or presentation – get your beauty rest.
