Myth: Sleeping on your side with inevitably cause wrinkles
I hate to say it, but this is true…! The positions in which you sleep do in fact affect the wrinkles on your face – That’s why some lines are named sleep lines. If you happen to sleep in the same position, on the same side of your face night after night, your skin will be repeatedly smashed up against your pillow – and as you age the skin’s natural collagen and connective tissues become less supportive; which is why when you mush your face into your pillow you can get the wrinkles. How do you prevent this from happening? Try sleeping on you back – Some people find this proves more difficult than it sounds. Helpful tricks to aid in avoiding sleep lines: satin pillowcases or specially formed beauty sleep pillows which alleviate pressure on the face and pulling of your skin.
