Lack of Sleep Affects your Facial Appearance and Social Appeal -New Study finds

A scientific study has revealed that people started to look more tired and unhealthy due to lack of sleep. According to the study published by Royal Society Open Science Journal, acute sleep deprivation and looking tired will make you appear more ugly and perceived as "less healthy" by others.

The Karolinska Institute asked 25 male and female participants to be photographed make-up free after days of both restricted and normal sleep.

A group of 122 strangers then rated the photos on how much they wanted to socialise with them. They also assessed their attractiveness, health, sleepiness, and trustworthiness. The scores were lower among the "sleepy" photos in all categories except trustworthiness.
"Having an unhealthy-looking face, whether due to sleep deprivation or otherwise, might thus activate disease-avoidance mechanisms in others and render one's surroundings less socially inclined," the study said.
