According to a recent study conducted by the tanning company, St. Tropez, two-thirds, of women experience an energy slump and look their oldest on Wednesday afternoons. Pretty weird huh, especially coming from a tanning company? Apparently, partying throughout the weekend and sleepless nights, tend to catch up with us by Wednesday. Nichola Joss, St. Tropez skin expert says, “It’s fascinating that 3.30pm on a Wednesday is the time women look their oldest. Combine the highest stress levels of the week on a Wednesday with the natural mid-afternoon slump and it seems that’s why women can look older than their years.” Joss said that alcohol may also play a part in a woman’s Wednesday appearance. According to Joss, indulging in a few booze-filled nights on the weekend can effect your skin mid-week.
Joss says, “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. A lack of sleep on a Monday does not bode well for how the skin will look on Wednesday.”
On a brighter note, Joss adds, “On Thursday, though, weekend anticipation boosts moods. That’s when women report they are most likely to have sex, which may be why on Friday, 60 percent say they’re at their happiest and most glowing.”
So what do you think about the St. Tropez survey? Do you look and feel most tired by Wednesday afternoon? Do you feel your happiest by Friday? Or do you feel that the survey is simply foolish?
