Eight hours sleep is the most direct route to beauty and even better health.
Swedish neuroscientists have discovered the secret to beauty health and happiness: it's eight hours sleep a night. As the Independent reports today, John Axelsson of the department of clinical neuroscience at the Karolinksa Institute Stockholm found:
If you want to look healthy and attractive, it is way better to get a good night's sleep and a lot cheaper than other beauty treatments.
But beauty, according to Axelsson, is not just skin deep. Sleep deprivation can have a negative effect on the immune system, raising blood pressure and raising risk for heart disease. His global health prescription is simple: sleep more, look better, and be healthier. What's not to love about that. Think about what we could do with all the money that will saved on skin cream.
