Study Reveals That Not Getting Your Beauty Sleep Will Literally Make You Uglier

"Get your beauty sleep" is surely one of every mother's favourite sayings. The notion of "beauty sleep" as always had something of a whiff of the old wives' tale surrounding it; a romantic concept of the days of yore, where beauty was presumed attainable by eight hours hitting the hay and chowing down on carrot after endless carrot would give one hitherto unparalleled night vision.

Perhaps largely due to its status as a neat catchphrase used by mothers the globe over to encourage their reluctant offspring to get an early night rather than sit up into the wee hours staring blankly at a computer screen, little credence has ever been given to the legitimacy of the phrase's insinuation; the idea that getting more sleep will adorn the beholden with good looks they so desire.

As the saying goes, though, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and new research appears to show that not getting enough sleep can have a very real impact on one's attractiveness as perceived by others.
