Anti Wrinkles Sleeping
Sleep on your back
Not all wrinkles of the face are due to muscle contraction.
Sleeping on your pillow the same way every night for years can lead to wrinkles.
As we age, the connective tissue and collagen in our face and neck aren’t as strong or supportive as they once were, so the sleep lines become increasingly etched.
Sleep wrinkles disappear immediately on younger skin, but will eventually become permanent from constant compression and decreased skin elasticity with age.
When a person sleeps on their side or on their stomach, there is an increased risk of causing wrinkles to the skin.

The adult human head can weigh anywhere between seven to eight pounds. Sleeping on the side or on the stomach is a lot of pressure for the skin on the face.
Sleep wrinkles develop in response to distortion created when the face is pressed against any sleep surface.
In fact, stomach sleepers often see more pronounced forehead lines—marks that even heavy retinol can’t cure.
Habitual movements on the skin are known to cause creasing that can lead to lines and wrinkles.
Research suggests that the repeated pressure of sleeping on your side contributes to face and chest wrinkles.
For many people though, this might be uncomfortable. But, you can practice and can get used to it over time.
Why is this important?
Sleeping lines unfortunately DO NOT go away with Botox because they are not caused by repetitive muscle movements.
Sleeping on your back is the ideal sleep position — you aren’t applying pressure throughout the night which will result in fewer visible fine lines.
