via Medical Daily, 'Women look their oldest at 3.30pm every Wednesday, a study has found, because that is when energy levels plummet, work stress is at a peak and the effects of any weekend late nights finally kick in.
Recent research reveals that more than one in ten women (12 percent) say that Wednesday is the most stressful day in a typical week.
However, the day after is much better. Researchers say that Thursday is the day women are most likely to have sex.
Getting busy on Thursday would then give women a youthful, rosy glow which could explain why women feel so happy on Friday. According to the new survey, 60 percent of women say Friday is their happiest day of the week.
The research also reveals that a fourth of women feel stressed several times a week, while 19 percent say that they will often work through Wednesday's lunch hour.
The latest study, conducted by tanning brand St. Tropez, found that two thirds of women experience a "slump in energy levels" mid-afternoon every Wednesday. The survey also found that the plummeting energy levels forces a quarter of women to eat a sugary snack to boost their mood and energy.
"It's fascinating that 3.30pm on a Wednesday is the time women look their oldest," said Nichola Joss, St. Tropez skin expert, according to The Telegraph.
"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 added.
She also said that a woman's sex life can have a big impact on how she feels.'
