Do you get enough beauty sleep? Is it even real? We’ve all heard of beauty sleep and while we use the term once in a while to talk about getting enough sleep, no one really talks about if beauty sleep is real and what it really means. Let’s have a talk about beauty sleep, the advantages of beauty sleep, and how you can make sure you’re getting enough quality beauty sleep.
Beauty sleep is a term we’ve all heard before, but is beauty sleep a real thing? Can getting beauty sleep really make you look, or feel, more beautiful? According to researchers, people who miss out on sleep can actually appear less attractive to others. In a sleep experiment, it was found that restricted sleep can have negative effects on facial appearance and social appeal. It’s common to think that people who look tired are less approachable and better to be avoided.
So it seems that yes, beauty sleep is a real thing! Getting “beauty sleep” can make you more attractive and appealing to others. If simply getting more sleep can do that, then why not? We often hear about all the ways that we can improve our appearance with different products, surgeries, etc. but for those of us who prioritize natural living, sleeping more and looking better sounds great.
Now let’s talk about the specific advantages of beauty sleep:
While the exact definition of “beauty sleep” is a bit vague, we can basically assume that it means getting enough deep sleep to feel well rested and for our bodies to do all the repair that happens during sleep.
This means that you get to sleep earlier in the evening before you’re over tired, you sleep well through the night, and you wake up feeling refreshed and energized. Restricting sleep by not going to bed on time, or having problems getting to sleep and staying asleep, will take away from your beauty sleep and the positive effects that beauty sleep can have on your appearance.
