The study sample size was small and there's still a lot more research to be done when it comes to determining how important those 7-8 hours of sleep really are, but we can always get behind another reason to catch up on some much-needed zzz's. And that's not all. Next, they asked 122 strangers - women and men living in Sweden's capital city, Stockholm - to have a look at the photos and rate them on attractiveness, health, sleepiness and trustworthiness, as well as asking them: "How much would you like to socialise with this person in the picture?" Basically, if you look more exhausted, you also look more unhealthy, and this might trigger some diseases-avoiding reactions in others - which would explain why people would avoid socializing with sleep-deprived people.

These changes alter our perception of attractiveness, intelligence and health, according to the study, suggesting beauty sleep could be a real thing. "An unhealthy-looking face, whether due to sleep deprivation or otherwise, might activate disease-avoiding mechanisms in others". After that, they were photographed by the researchers.

But lead researcher Dr Tina Sundelin added: "I don't want to worry people or make them lose sleep over these findings".

Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus budget-friendly phones announced
To recall, previous rumours suggested that the smartphone under the Moto E series will be called Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus. But it turned out to be false and Lenovo is bringing new one this year which is dubbed Moto X 2017.

The team also found willingness to socialise with a sleepy-looking person was much lower than with someone who looked alert. As it turns out, not getting enough sleep made participants score worse on all counts.

'We want our partners to be attractive and energetic.

You already know that a good night's sleep and weight loss have a strong correlation, but now studies officially show that there's a connection between shut-eye and perceived attractiveness.
