Sleeping position may cause wrinkles
March 24, 2011
Facial wrinkles are a cause of stress for many individuals. Although there are many ways to prevent the onset of crow’s feet and lines around one's mouth, some experts believe that sleeping habits may have an impact on how many wrinkles you develop, according to CBS42.
Experts believe that sleeping on your stomach, on your side when your face is being pushed in that same position over and over again can be a problem."
Some say that it's best to sleep on your back with a pillow tucked between the knees to prevent rolling. However, the type of material covering the bed is also important.
The bedding material should be soft and pillowcases should have a high thread count. This leads to better rest, which will cause the facial skin to droop less during waking hours.
Those interested in a cosmetic procedure to help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles have many options from which to choose. In addition to reducing wrinkles, treatments such as injectable fillers and facial rejuvenation procedures can help enhance the fullness of one's face, according to the Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety.
