The Science Behind Beauty Sleep
Beauty sleep isn’t an old wives’ tale or a myth passed down by your grandma. There’s real science to back up the idea that if you sleep well, you look good.
A recent study indicates that people who are sleep deprived are rated as less healthy and less attractive than after a full night’s sleep. A well-rested bride walking down the aisle is likely to look more fabulous than a sleep-deprived one.
People can tell when you’re tired because sleep can have a restorative effect on your skin and overall looks. In fact, sleep quality is clinically proven to impact skin function and aging.
In a recent study, poor sleepers experience increased signs of skin aging and slower recovery from environmental stressors. When you get enough sleep, your skin has fewer signs of aging and is better prepared to bounce back from stress.
