Wednesday is one of the most stressful days of the week, and energy levels crash in the afternoon. That means women look their oldest at exactly 3:30 pm every Wednesday, according to an extremely scientific study performed by a brand of self-tanner.
According to the “study,” it can take up to 72 hours for the visible effects of weekend drinking to show up, so a Sunday brunch bender could manifest on Wednesday. Many say Monday night is their worst night of sleep, which could also bode poorly for skin appearance on Wednesday.
“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,” a skin-care expert from the tanning brand told the Telegraph.
The good news: Things are looking up today! Thursday is the day women are likeliest to have sex. So eat, drink, and be merry, for next Wednesday we’ll look old again.
