Turns out there really is such a thing as beauty sleep. And apparently, there’s a specific time we should be heading to bed and waking up in order to look our most attractive.
Bed brand Sealy UK conducted a study to learn more about our sleeping habits and find out if there’s actually a link between a good night’s sleep and an improved appearance.
Interestingly, it seems as though there is.
People who got an average of 9 hours and 10 minutes of good quality sleep each night were most likely to report positive benefits to their looks.
The research also revealed that we should be aiming to nod off at 9:45 p.m. and arise at 6:55 a.m.
Neil Robinson – an expert on sleep at Sealy UK – tells Her.ie: “Many of us strive to look and feel good and spend a large amount of money trying to do so.
“However, we seem to forget that achieving a better night’s sleep can positively impact our overall appearance.
“With this in mind, it’s important to consider the quality of sleep you are getting and doing everything possible to create an environment which makes quality sleep more likely.
“This could include investing in a comfortable and supportive bed, creating a calm and quiet sleeping environment, or implementing a regular pre-sleep routine.”
