We have long been told about the benefits of getting in that all important “Beauty Sleep” and now research also backs this concept – those who are well rested appear more attractive, and look better than those who are sleep deprived say researchers.
In a Swedish study, 23 young male and female volunteers were photographed after having had 8 hours of sleep. They were photographed again after being sleep deprived for 31 hours.
After this, untrained observers were asked to rate these photos of those who had had a normal nights’ sleep that those who had been sleep deprived. The photos were standardized– people wore the same expression and were at the same distance from the camera and had on no makeup.
The observers rated the sleep deprived people as less attractive, less healthy and more tired. Researchers are hopeful that this study will offer medical practitioners additional or visual cues about ill health in their patients.
This also gives us ample reason to see that we get the amount of sleep that we need each night. So come the festive season, party all you like, but make sure that you’re not burning the candle at both ends– your looks could be the sufferer!
The hangover mornings aren’t very pleasant, especially if you have to go to work. In case you want to hide the hangover, here are some beauty tips that will help you. Start with a morning shower and use a scrub. The Origins Ginger is great for a morning start, especially after a party night, so scrub your body and your face. The ginger aroma will also help you cure the hangover.
Take care of your hair and wash it with some good shampoo like the Bumble & Bumble Sunday shampoo, which will restore the volume to your hair.
The hangover puffy eyes will surely be gone, after using the Eye Slices gel. It is also a gel for red and tired eyes, so apply it and you will see the quick result.
After a wild party night, the skin is dehydrated, so use a hydrating cream. The beauty experts recommend the Skincare’s Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask, which will refresh and soothe your skin.
Moisturize your facial skin with a cream and prepare your face for the morning makeup. The foundation is a must, because it will recreate the flawlessness of your skin. Check out Dior’s latest foundation for a daily makeup and make sure the foundation you are using contains UV factor.
In case you need deep cleansing and exfoliating, you don’t need to spend a fortune over cosmetic treatments and expensive scrubs. The sugar scrub is just what you need to refresh your skin. Perhaps you never heard about it, but the sugar is used since ancient times to exfoliate the skin.
The sugar contains glycol and acid, which are perfect for improving the blood circulation. The sugar scrub is appropriate for sensitive skin. You can also try making your own sugar scrub.
The experts are recommending the brown sugar scrub, for the brown sugar is softer than the white one. Combine some sweet smelling oil, brown sugar, almond oil or coconut oil. Mix them well and apply on the skin at least once in a week. In case you want some special smell, you can add few drops of vanilla.
You can add whatever you want to the sugar scrub, but make sure the ingredient is organic. For instance, the honey is also a good addition to the sugar scrub, so don’t hesitate to add some organic honey. For an antioxidant effect, add few leaves of green tea to the mixture. Some people prefer yogurt in their sugar scrub, because the yogurt has healing effect on irritated skin.
