Dr. Jejurikar's Blog

My mom always told me to get my beauty rest. Now science backs her up.

According to a recently published study from the British Medical Journal (link), sleep deprived people are perceived as less healthy, less attractive, and more tired than after a normal night’s sleep. Participants in the study were photographed after a normal night’s sleep (eight hours) and after sleep deprivation (31 hours of wakefulness after a night of reduced sleep). The photographs were randomized and rated by untrained observers. Participants were rated using a visual analog score. The findings were that sleep deprived people were perceived as less healthy, more tired, and overall, less attractive than after a normal night’s sleep.

Plastic surgeons, including me, usually give patients advice that focus on skin care and surgery. This study is a reminder that simple, basic things, including getting a good night’s sleep, are just as important for maintaining a youthful and attractive appearance.
