The idea of beauty rest is ingrained in popular culture, but it’s apparently never been put to the test by science. Swedish researchers say there’s an important link between sleep and our physical appearance. In a study published recently in the British Medical Journal researcher John Axelsson and his team at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found that sleep-deprived individuals appear less healthy, more tired, and less attractive than those who have received a full night’s worth of sleep. Axelsson said his young daughter gave him the reason to take on the subject. She was watching the classic animated film “Sleeping Beauty” when she had a question.
“My daughter asked me, why is the sleeping beauty so beautiful? Is it because she sleeps a lot?” Axelsson tell ABC News. “As a scientist, I couldn’t answer, so I had to do a study.”
The studies were clear: sleep is the body’s natural beauty therapy: Axelsson said.
Cellular repair and rejuvenation of the skin is at its peak during the sleep phase. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial to achieving the most optimum results from this natural process.
It is no wonder then that the next revolution in beauty treatment taps into sleep’s natural recovery properties to promote gorgeous skin. And who would have thought that it would taste so sweet as well?
