Your body naturally loses collagen and elasticity as it ages. This causes wrinkles. Wrinkling is exacerbated by repeated pressure (pulling on the skin by a pillow) and muscle motions (laughing and frowning).
How can you prevent wrinkles while you sleep? Here are seven tips:
- Sleep on your back.
- Get a special pillow if you can't sleep on your back.
- Upgrade your pillowcase.
- Try a retinol cream.
- Wear a night cream.
- Treat your face with coconut oil before bed.
- Get a full night's sleep.
