Beauty sleep sounds like something 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.”
However…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.
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.
