I’m usually not one of those girls who, at 22, stresses —or let alone really thinks—about wrinkles. They’re going to happen no matter what I do. But for you Lovelies who like to take a proactive stance towards aging, here’s some advice: don’t sleep on your side.
According to New York dermatologist Debra Jaliman, a lot of side action during your unconscious hours makes for a more prune-like face in the future. The wrinkles are called “sleep lines” and they’re etched onto your mug by the way you smush your face against the pillow. How inconvenient.
So you’re a religious knee-to-chest ball of sleepyhead—how do you avoid the inevitable? The easiest solution is to get a satin pillow. The silky fabric helps your skin to not crease, but to just slide across it when you move. The best, most fool-proof solution, though, is to just sleep on your back. Sounds like a completely unappetizing and uncomfortable visit to snore-town, right? Maybe, but if you’re that committed, you can make things more comfortable by using a U-shaping pillow or baracading yourself in a little cocoon of pillows.
Or you can be like me and let nature do what it will. Nothin’ wrong with either beauty mindset. (via Stylelist)
