Can Not Sleeping Enough Affect Your Appearance?

Our doctors always tell us to make sure we get plenty of rest to maintain a healthy life, and a recent study is giving new meaning to getting your "beauty sleep."

The study shows not getting enough sleep can apparently cause you to look "ugly."

It shows people who deprive themselves of a good night's sleep are more prone to droopy eyelids, puffy and swollen eyes, and dark circles under the eyes that we always try to hide.

One person said she definitely doesn't feel as pretty when she wakes up in the morning.

"I feel that way because my face is swollen when I wake up. I think it's interesting because everyone thinks about their self-esteem in the morning," said Katherine Geleta, a WVU student.

Another study recently by Estee Lauder also suggests sleep deprivation can cause your skin to age faster. Another person 5 News talked to Sunday said she doesn't feel that way regardless of how much sleep she gets per night.

"I don't really feel that way, but the people who do have several different beauty products, they can try out," said Kathryn Samuels, a WVU student.

If you feel this story causes you to take action, health officials want to remind you the best way to avoid causing your appearance to take a turn for the worst is to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep a day.
