Do you sleep on your back, side, or front? For the longest time I thought back sleepers were crazy, until I realized that they would be getting a lot less WRINKLES on their faces. But will sleep wrinkles go away? (And can anti-aging creams help?)
There are sooo many factors causing wrinkles. Too many to count — from diet, to skin exposure, to genetics, to water intake.
But I bet you never thought about the position you sleep in at night! But THAT is totally the #1 stealthy cause of premature wrinkles. Sleeping on your side and especially your stomach can cause crow’s feet and under eye lines!
So it seems like the only solution is to sleep on your back, right? Even though that might mean you don’t get as good of a night’s sleep? BUT even if you fall asleep on your back, how do you make sure that you don’t roll onto your side or stomach in the middle of the night?
Well, there are some pillows that claim to help, like the “JuveRest,” which honestly doesn’t look like much more than a yoga block, and the “Your Face Pillow,” which people say keeps them on their back, but then they wake up several times in the middle of the night when their body is trying to roll over!
And to that I say, “Well, yeah!!”
The idea of a pillow that can keep you face-up and wrinkle-free all night sounds good in theory, but your body is naturally MEANT to switch positions several times during the night!
My face is very important to me, but getting a good night’s sleep is even more important! Besides, how are you supposed to keep looking young and fresh if you can’t get any sleep, because your pillow is keeping you up at night?
Although, people on the Internet were pretty obsessed with these pillows, and anxiously asking, “Will sleep wrinkles go away??”
One woman, who I won’t name, commented on an online beauty forum that she wanted to try positional therapy that doctors use on sleep apnea patients — pillows and belts to make sure the person sleeps on their back! This woman was wondering where she could sign up for such therapy, just to prevent wrinkles from sleeping on her back/side!
She also said, “My husband thinks I’m going a little crazy.” And while I understand the pursuit of youthful skin I have to agree with the husband on this one… 😉
“Well OK Barb, if you’re so smart, then what’s your solution to these sleep lines and wrinkles? And will sleep wrinkles go away? Or will they turn into deeper crow’s feet and under eye lines over the years??”
I recommend combining the tools you’ve got in your arsenal, and using anti-aging creams to promote smooth, young, rejuvenated skin, so you don’t have to worry about which darn way your head is facing when you’re trying to sleep!! 😉
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So you won’t even have to ask, “Will sleep wrinkles go away?”
And in this case, the ‘ounce’ of prevention is the ultra-light ageLOC LumiSpa — a facial massager and cleansing device!
The LumiSpa’s unique micro-pulsing technology is designed to keep skin looking young, renewed and supple. The oscillation of the pulses may even be able to draw out nasty toxins from the skin! And meanwhile, the cleansers that comes with the LumiSpa contain ingredients like Japanese knotweed to extract oils, carnosine to protect your skin’s antioxidants, and natural, non-comedogenic ingredients to keep skin’s moisture intact.
So if you’re after PREVENTING wrinkles (and who isn’t), I recommend investing in an anti-aging device and giving yourself the at-home spa treatment…NOT trying to mess with how you sleep.
