"Beauty Sleep" is a real thing!

posted by Sarah Jacobs -


Beauty sleep sounds like something Good Housekeeping magazine 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." (lol, ok)

 But, 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. 

And 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. 

As if I needed another reason to get to bed earlier... ;)
