We all know that adequate sleep is good for our overall health, but did you ever consider how sleep position can affect your appearance? CBS affiliate, WCCO, reports on the way that sleep position can contribute to facial wrinkles, leaving many people to ask, “Am I doing enough for my skin during the night?” The station enlisted the expertise of an area dermatologist. When asked if sleep position can cause wrinkles, he responded, “It absolutely can (cause wrinkles) over time… If you fold a piece of paper enough times you get an etched crease there.”
Gender plays a role, too. “Men tend to sleep on their stomachs and they tend to get wrinkles on [their] foreheads,” reports WCCO. “Women tend to be side-sleepers and they get more wrinkles on their cheeks.” When it comes to wrinkle prevention during the night, the doctor suggested that sleeping on your back or varying sleep positions were probably the best bet. Of course, sleep position isn't the only thing that contributes to wrinkles. Read on to learn a few ways modern medicine deals with combating creases.
