5 Ways to Prevent Wrinkles While You Sleep
When it comes to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, prevention is the key. Doing small things now to prevent the signs of aging can make a large impact down the road; and the best part? You can do it while you sleep! Here are five ways you can prevent wrinkles while you sleep.
Get More Sleep
Sometimes this seems hard to achieve, especially if you are a parent or college student. However, if you make an effort to cut down on the late night TV binging and get a full eight hours, your skin will thank you. Your skin needs that rest, just like the rest of your body, to recover and gear up for the day. They call it beauty sleep for a reason.
Stop Sleeping on Your Side
Sleeping on your back instead of on your side is one the best things you can do for your skin. Sleeping on your side means your face is being constantly squished into your pillow, and over time this pressure on your skin will cause wrinkles to form. Think about what happens when you don’t fold or hang your clothes after drying. The same concept applies to your skin when you sleep on the side of your face.
Start Wearing a Night Cream
Even if you are still in your 20’s your skin is constantly being damaged throughout the day. Stress, UV rays and air pollution are all wreaking havoc on your face. Working an anti-aging product into your nightly ritual can help prevent this type of damage from showing up as wrinkles on your face.
Use Moisturizer Before You Go to Bed
This may seem like a no-brainer, but moist skin is healthy skin. Putting on a gentle moisturizer before you go to bed can keep your skin from drying out while you sleep, leading to healthier and younger looking skin.
Treat Your Eyes with Vitamin E
Don’t ignore your eyes. The most sensitive skin on your face is around your eyes, which is where the first signs of aging occurs. Using a product around your eyes containing Vitamin E, like Rejûvaskin® Eye Cream, will help fight off free radicals and protect your skin.
When it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, it is never too early to start taking steps to slow the hands of time. Start making small changes to your nightly routine now and keep years off of your face in the future. It’s so easy you can do it in your sleep!
