As women, we all do our best to achieve glowing skin. We drink lots of water, try to eat healthy, and buy expensive face creams that promise us flawless skin. But what most of us fail to realize is that our pillow might actually be the root problem of those pesky wrinkles we try so hard to get rid of or prevent.
That’s right. Each night, we apply our face creams and go to bed, not aware that all that expensive face cream will be wiped off during the night. In addition to your face creams rubbing off on your pillow, you are applying about 8 lbs of pressure to your face causing your face to crease on your pillow. These are called sleep wrinkles. Sleep wrinkles are vertical lines on the side of your face that are caused from constant compression to the face. But don’t worry. There are ways to achieve true beauty sleep. The following are some tips that can help you do just that:
(1) Back sleeping
Back sleeping is a great way to help prevent sleep wrinkles. If trained to do so, you no longer have to worry about getting all your face products smeared onto your pillow. But unfortunately, for most women it is very hard to discipline themselves to do that. But there is a solution.
(2) Anti-wrinkle pillows
Anti-wrinkle pillows are a great way to prevent sleep wrinkles. Most anti-wrinkle pillows are flat and have cut-outs for the face, so that it is not getting compressed at night. The problem is that when you toss and turn at night you rarely stay in that cutout. A great anti-wrinkle pillow that has really worked for me is the Flawless Face Pillow. The difference between this pillow and the other beauty pillows that are on the market is the fact that the Flawless Face Pillow conforms to your head making it curved rather than flat. This allows you to move around and have the pillow stay with you! It is probably the best investment I have made into my skin so far! I hope this article helps you gain a better understanding of sleep wrinkles and how to solve this problem that so many of us face. Sweet dreams!
