I have been someone who always seemed to sleep on my right side, until the last few weeks, when I noticed I was getting crease/wrinkle mark on that side, so I thought it was time to treat that area more with massaging. I used a straight Kakadu Plum Concentrated Extract. I Then I applied a vitamin serum and again massaged and finally a rich night cream. As I worked morning and night doing this I noticed a great improvement. Hoorah!!
Satin pillow cases, specially shaped pillows, can also assist. Here’s a practical bottom line approach that won’t drive you crazy!
First, accept the fact that most people find it very difficult to change decades of sleep habits, so please don’t beat yourself up over this.
No one….truly…ever died of a sleep wrinkle! most disappear in time. But I did spend more time massaging the skin, as our skin loves massage.
The most effective thing is to try to change your position and your pillow.
1. You can try to sleep on your back, but many people just can’t. And sleeping on the back can contribute to snoring!
2. If you are a stomach sleeper, you may be able to change to your side, which would be better.
3. Side sleepers may really benefit from experimenting with different pillow sizes and shapes. And “bolstering” with pillows around the body (like many of us did when pregnant) may be helpful, but it’s also not very friendly to sleeping partners!
These really don’t make much difference unless you are waking up with wrinkles in the middle of your cheeks. If you are, try a different pillow or case. Forehead sleep lines are usually related to pressure or adrenal stress not the pillowcase itself wrinkling.
