Hello ladies, do you think there is a particular day you seem to be most unattractive, due to stress from work and other matters? Is there a day that you have seen yourself as being a little less attractive anytime you are in front of the mirror due to stress?

Well, a 2013 study found that women look their ugliest on Wednesday by 3.30pm because that’s when stress from work is at its peak and the effects of weekend late nights take its toll.

According to The Telegraph, St. Tropez skin expert, Nichola Joss, said: “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.”

The study which was carried out by the tanning brand, St Tropez, revealed two-thirds of women experience a “slump in energy levels” mid-afternoon every Wednesday.

It also found that one in ten women find Wednesday the most stressful day in a typical week, albeit most women revealed that Thursday is the day they are most likely to have sex.

Ms Joss went on to explain how beneficial sex can be to a woman: “Many women credit a healthy sex life for keeping them looking and feeling young.

“As the mid-week slump passes and stress levels begin to decrease, it’s fascinating that Thursday is the evening they are most likely to feel amorous.” She said.

She also had something alarming to say about the after effect of weekend parties and booze, as the study revealed almost half of women (46 per cent) are likely to indulge in a boozy treat at the weekend.

She says that the effect of the weekend can take a few days to show, with Wednesday being the most likely day.

“Processing the toxins in alcohol and sugar can put strain on the body.

“It can take up to 72 hours for the visible effects of alcohol to show, so the effects of drinking on the weekend may not present themselves until Wednesday afternoon.” She said.

The study also found that Monday night is when they are most likely to get a bad night’s sleep, and Ms Joss revealed: “A lack of sleep on a Monday 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.”

Ms Joss went on to reveal that it’s pertinent for women to sleep for 7 to 8 hours every night, because a lack of sleep would make the skin look older.

“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.” She revealed.

The study also revealed that one in ten women will abandon their skin care regime on a Wednesday, and Ms Joss advised: “Even if a woman doesn’t wear make-up, it’s essential to cleanse the face of build up from everyday pollution.

“Letting these build up clogs the skin making it duller and drier, and superficially older.”

The research was carried out to support the launch of St Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Ageing Face.
