Hot People Sleep More
There are a lot of secrets to being hot. The best one, of course, is to be born with incredible genes. But there also proactive ways you can make yourself look more hot — which requires some work.
But we recently discovered one really simple way to look hotter: sleep more.
Incredible news, right? And it’s actually backed by science.
Here’s how Business Insider explains it:
In 2010, researchers from Sweden and the Netherlands took photos of people who’d slept for at least eight hours the night before and people who hadn’t slept in 31 hours. Sleep-deprived people were rated as less healthy and less attractive.
Three years later, the researchers went into more detail, and other participants rated the peoplein the photos based on different criteria.
In general, participants said that sleep-deprived people had more “droopy/hanging eyelids, red eyes, dark circles under the eyes, and pale skin” — and even looked sadder than their better-rested counterparts.
Damn, is this not the best news? Sleep is literally free — you can do it anywhere, from a bus to a bench to a bed.
Of course, sometimes it’s not that easy — especially if you’re the insomniac type. Luckily, we’ve already covered how to get your sleep schedule under control if you’re the type to stay up all night staring at your phone.
