Study Shows "Beauty Sleep" is Indeed Vital to Attractiveness
For the first time, say the authors, there is scientific backing for the concept of beauty sleep.
The study that was led by John Axelsson from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, investigated the relationship between sleep and perceptions of attractiveness and health. The authors believe this research is important with the number of people who are suffering from sleep disorders and disturbed sleep.
23 participants between the ages of 18 to 31 took part in the study. They were photographed between 2pm and 3pm on two occasions, once after normal sleep and once after being deprived of sleep.
The photographs were taken in a well-lit room and the distance to the camera was fixed. During both photography sessions participants wore no make-up, had their hair loose (combed back if they had long hair) and underwent similar cleaning or shaving procedures.
Sixty-five observers, who were blinded to the sleep status of the subjects, rated the photographs for attractiveness and whether the individuals looked healthy or unhealthy and tired or not tired.
The results? The observers judged that the faces of the sleep-deprived participants looked less healthy, less attractive and more tired. The study authors then concluded that the facial signals of sleep deprived people can be very telling – affecting their appearance and attractiveness.
A comment from Nutrition Breakthroughs:
A popular example of this is Sleep Minerals II (https://www.nutritionbreakthroughs.com/
Wendy R. of Honolulu, Hawaii says: "My friends know that I've had chronic insomnia for a long time. Surprisingly, I received the Sleep Minerals II and began taking it and found this thing really works. In the past if I ever got a good nights sleep I'd say 'I slept like a baby', but that's the wrong comparison. Those little guys get up every two hours. I am actually beginning to sleep like an adult — a much-rested adult."
