According to a study published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal, 95% of us sleep on our side or stomach. Only 5% of us sleep on our back.
What does that mean?
If your face is pressed down into your pillow while you sleep, your skin gets creased. Do this for long enough, and those creases will turn into “sleep wrinkles”. With time, sleep wrinkles gradually become permanent, which isn’t good news, is it? Fortunately, it’s something that a little Juvéderm can help with.
If you don’t want sleep wrinkles, join the 5% and sleep on your back. Doing so will keep your face from pressing against anything, thereby preventing your skin from creasing under the pressure.
Of course it’s hard to stay in one position while you sleep, since you may shift without knowing it. Fortunately, the amount of time a person spends in one position while sleeping increases with age. That means if you start off on your back, you’ll probably remain in that position for a longer time.
