Skipping your beauty sleep may make you lose friends!

GETTY- STOCK IMAGEEven losing a few hours a night can be detrimental to our physical appearance

There really is such a thing as beauty sleep - and people who don't get enough of it do appear less attractive to others.

According to researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and New York University in the United States said,"People seem to be able to tell when someone needs more sleep, and are more inclined to leave them alone in that case". Swollen eyelids and dark circles around the eyes might also prevent people from hanging out with you, say researchers, who photographed 25 volunteers without makeup after two consecutive nights of about 7.5 hours of sleep and again after two consecutive nights of slightly less than 4.5 hours of sleep, reports the Los Angeles Times.

122 volunteers (65 women, 57 men) aged between 18 to 65 were then asked how much they would like to socialize with the person in the photo.

Meanwhile, Brent crude oil, the worldwide benchmark, is up 1.9% at $49.89 per barrel on Wednesday, and has lost 12.4% this year. Crude prices rose further in Asia on Thursday, building on overnight gains following an upbeat report on USA inventories.

The exhausted people's faces were also enough to put strangers off socialising with them. After that, they were photographed by the researchers. Not only that, but when people were exhausted, they were rated as less attractive and less healthy than when they were well rested.

Researchers found that people were less willing to socialise with tired-looking subjects. "I don't want to worry people or make them lose sleep over these findings".

In short, people can tell when you're exhausted and think you are less attractive when you haven't got enough sleep. They were also asked how likely they would be to socialize with the participants.

India hopes for sovereign, independent, united Palestine: Modi
Condemning terrorism by ISIS, Abbas said ending the "Israeli occupation" will greatly help in countering terrorism in the region. Trump is expected to visit Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories on May 22 and 23.

"People seem to be able to tell when someone needs more sleep, and are more inclined to leave them alone in that case", the authors wrote in the new work. After just two nights of not getting enough sleep, there were significant differences in how people were perceived, she points out. "We want our partners to be attractive and energetic".

"The reasons for avoiding people who look sleepy may include the fact that sleepy individuals are at a higher risk for accidents, more prone to be carriers of contagious pathogens or aspects making them less socially rewarding to be around".

While further studies are needed to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the effects of sleep deprivation on facial appearance, the researchers believe that their findings further highlight the importance of a good night's sleep.
