A recent study from the Royal Society Open Science Journal has found that a lack in sleep might be making you less likeable.

The study found a connection between health, attractiveness and even noted that others were less likely to interact with someone they thought looked tired.

A group of people were given a series of photos and were then asked to rate how trustworthy, healthy, attractive and sleepy the people in the image looked. The answers showed that those who looked the most tired were also perceived as being untrustworthy, unattractive and unhealthy.

"Having an unhealthy-looking face, whether due to sleep deprivation or otherwise, might thus activate disease-avoidance mechanisms in others and render one's surroundings less socially inclined.” the study said.

Given that this study was based around the perception of strangers, it's not known the effect that looking sleepy has on friends and family.
