How to Reduce Sleep Lines and Facial Wrinkles

We lose twice as much water from our face at night when our skin is in repair mode and it regenerates. Preventing moisture loss at night is critical for skin rejuvenation and waking up more radiant. There are certain fabrics that actually absorb the moisture that leaves your skin at night. As a result these fabrics such as satin, cotton and silk pillowcases will adhere to the skin, and as your face is plastered into the pillow the skin and the jowls are stretched downward by the action of the fabric. This weakens the dermal collagen. As we sleep, we move our head often and this forms creases due to the moist surface forming wrinkles in the fabric. Three factors combine to produce sleep lines.

1. The pressure of your head,

2. the nature of cotton and other fabrics and

3. water loss from the skin.

Sleep lines are a well recognized entity and were first written about in 1987 by Dr. Samuel Stegman. His theories were confirmed in another medical paper by the prominent dermatologist Dr. James Fulton. Sleeping on moisturizng fabrics specifically formulated for skin care is the most advanced solution to reducing facial wrinkles. After years of sleeping on your side, these sleep lines can become permanent. Recently moisturizing fabric jeans debuted that have specific ingredients infused in them. There are also performance wicking fabrics that keep you dry, sweat free and comfortable while working out and work well for night sweats. Solutions for sleep lines are advanced dry moisture technology pillowcases that are will help reduce facial wrinkles without the use of creams or chemicals.

What do sleep lines look like? They form diagonally on cheeks and lower face and vertical lines can also appear on the forehead. Men generally seem to get the these lines on the forehead. 2-3 parallel lines or compression wrinkles generally form in the same area of the face. Crows feet can also surface from sleeping on your side with your head smooshed into the pillow night after night.

Unfortunately, Botox does not work on sleep lines. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles in the skin when you move your face. Sleep lines are caused by pressing your face into your pillow and are not caused by muscle contractions.

There are other options to reduce lines such as anti wrinkle pillows, sleeping on your back, and various tapes. Whatever your beauty bedding of choice is, know that the term Sleeping Beauty is for real and make sure to get your important beauty sleep every night.
