It turns out that there really is such a thing as beauty sleep. And apparently, there’s a specific time we should be going to bed and waking up in order to look our best. Sealy UK conducted a study to learn more about sleeping habits and find out if there’s a link between a good night’s sleep and an improved appearance. People who got an average of 9 hours and 10 minutes of quality sleep each night were most likely to report positive benefits to their looks. The research also revealed we should be aiming to nod off at 9:45 p.m. and arise at 6:55 a.m. Neil Robinson – an expert on sleep at Sealy UK – says: “Many of us strive to look and feel good and spend a large amount of money trying to do so. However, we seem to forget that achieving a better night’s sleep can positively impact our overall appearance.
