Ever wondered why you feel “sexier, smarter and funnier” after a couple of drinks? Well, it appears that beer goggles aren’t only for the opposite sex; they work for your self-esteem as well. According to a new study released by psychologists at France University, participants rated their overall attractiveness and personality higher when they consumed (or believed that they consumed) alcohol.
Now, this study isn’t without its flaws. It only included a handful of women, the sex that criticizes themselves the hardest. Still, it looks like alcohol is a good pick-me-up for your self-confidence. Just keep it to the two-drink rosy-colored glasses maximum. Drinking to the pass-out stage will just make you feel ugly on the inside and outside the next morning and cause you to reach for a hangover cure for assistance.
