Although the notion of beauty sleep has often been dismissed as a myth, a recent research proves sleep does enhance your appearance. What's more, experts recommend at least seven hours a night.
In the study, 23 healthy young adults were photographed after a good night's sleep, and again after much less. Each picture was then rated on an attractiveness scale of one to ten by members of the public. And the well-rested won hands down.
Sleep-deprived people are perceived as less attractive and less healthy compared with when they are well rested, according to the study carried out at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
In addition, sleep has been shown to reduce wrinkles in the face and neck. This is because when we are asleep we sweat more, and this moisture on the skin smooths out any lines.
