And as a woman, if you want to enjoy healthy, natural, and smooth skin even as you begin to age, it’s critical that you understand the two types of skin wrinkles.
These two main types of skin wrinkles are: expression wrinkles and sleep wrinkles. Expression wrinkles begin to show up in your skin after years of moving certain muscles throughout the facial area. The most common areas of expression wrinkles are typically along your forehead, eyes, and even the mouth.
The other type of skin wrinkles you may not be fully aware of are what’s called sleep wrinkles. Sleep wrinkles can leave vertical lines on the face, and they occur when you compress your face on a pillow during a long night’s rest.
When you sleep at night, it’s also common for you to switch from side to side as you sleep. This can not only strip any nightly moisturizer or creams from your skin, but it can allow the skin to become even drier, along with being more stretched out or scrunched.
