Sleep wrinkles?! Even with a flawless skin care routine, using the best skin care products, you can still wake up each morning with sleep wrinkles if your bedsheets and pillowcase are made from coarser fabrics.
As you get older, sleep wrinkles can occur because your skin loses collagen and elasticity. If you sleep on your side or front – the pressure, friction and compression from the weight of your head on the pillow or bed can cause your skin to fold and crease. With younger skin, those folds and creases fade quickly due to plenty of collagen and elasticity in your skin. But as you get older those sleep lines tend to stick together more and deepen. Leaving permanent sleep wrinkles on your face.
To help reduce skin creases, instead of using bedsheets and pillowcases made from coarser fabrics, choose materials that are soft, smooth and silky – with a high thread count.
If you sleep on your side, try switching sides occasionally or sleeping on your back, so your face doesn’t wrinkle over time from pressure in certain areas. But, don’t stress about this… ultimately, you want to be comfortable because high-quality sleep is essential for natural beauty. Want some more beauty sleep tips?
