How Changing The Way You Sleep Can Help You Avoid Wrinkles
Many folks think that just getting their doctor recommended eight hours of beauty rest can lead to better skin. However, there are more things you can do to slow down signs of aging overnight so you can wake up glowing and radiant in the morning.
Does Sleeping Cause Wrinkles?
According to dermatologists, yes, it does. If your face comes into contact with cotton pillowcases or sheets, or if you sleep on your side or stomach, you can experience deep wrinkles and lines on your cheeks and foreheads.
So what can you do to prevent sleeping wrinkles?
Sleeping on Your Back
If you sleep on your side or stomach, you are applying constant pressure to your face, which overtime can cause wrinkles. When you sleep on your back, you will not be applying any pressure to your face. For many people, a new sleeping position may be uncomfortable. But practicing and getting used to it over time can help your body grow accustom to this new position.
Get a Special Pillow
Not a back-sleeper? Manufacturers make special pillows that will make sleeping on your back more comfortable.
Upgrading your pillowcases will drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can happen overnight. This is because silk seamlessly glides over your skin, leaving less traction on your face.
Wear Night Cream
A Full Night’s Rest
Getting a full night’s rest is essential for healthy looking skin. That’s why it’s called beauty sleep!
By sleeping on your back, wearing night cream, and upgrading your sheets, you can reduce the risk of premature aging as you sleep.
