Women look their oldest on a Wednesday!

February 6, 2013 by Works with Water

It’s midweek, you are feeling really stressed out and you are not looking your best! Well don’t despair you are not the only one….

New research has revealed that Women look their oldest on a Wednesday, at 3.30pm to be exact, because that is when energy levels plummet, work stress is at a peak and the effects of any weekend partying and lack of sleep finally kick in.

More than a third (37 per cent) reported Monday night is when they are most likely to get a bad night’s sleep and this does not bode well for how the skin will look on Wednesday.

The effects of a lack of sleep can take 48 hours to show on the face, so if many women sleep badly on Monday they will look their oldest on Wednesday.

Further findings showed that the average British woman gets six hours and 43 minutes sleep a night. For maximum anti-ageing benefits it’s essential women get 7 to 8 hours sleep a night. Too little and your skin cells can’t rejuvenate, too much can result in puffy, older looking skin.

Add to that the 72 hours it takes for the visual effects of alcohol to show on your skin, now you are really starting to wish you had spent the weekend tucked up in bed and completely t-total.

One in 10 women surveyed said that Wednesday is the most stressful day of the week (stress causes a chemical response in the body that makes the skin more sensitive and reactive) and this has us reaching out for sugary foods to help us lift our mood and boost our energy, another no-no when it comes to skin health.

So, now you know to rule out Wednesday’s for that hot date with that cute guy you have had your eye on. According to the survey Fridays are our happiest day of the week… I wonder why?
