Your Pillow is Causing Wrinkles: Sleep Wrinkles 101

Where Do Wrinkles Start?

Just as your mother warned you, “If you make your face like that, it will stay that way,” sleeping a certain way on a pillow can leave your face just as it is when sleeping: Creased and wrinkled. This skin is made up of three layers: The epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. As the skin gets older, the skin gets thinner and the subcutaneous layer manufacturing the cells needed to fill in the thin skin decreases in turnover.

What Causes Wrinkles?

The natural process of aging isn’t the only thing that causes wrinkles. Wrinkles are also caused by sun damage, free radicals, hormones, muscle use, and gravity.

Gravity Effects

Just as gravity pulls our feet toward the ground, gravity can pull the face down and accentuate wrinkles in the face. For this reason, sleeping on the face only increases the gravitational pull. Sleeping on the face affects how the muscles in the face contract overnight. If the face is smashed into a pillow, this creates sleep wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, or chin that are difficult to unwrinkle during the day. What makes reversing these lines even more difficult is that they are not the result of muscle contractions, so typical wrinkle treatments, such as Botox, are ineffective in fighting against sleep wrinkles.

A person spends more than 1/3 of his or her life asleep, and the more years a person sleeps on his or her face, the more wrinkles that are likely to accumulate.

Solutions to Sleep-Related Wrinkles

The most common suggested solution to prevent sleep wrinkles is to sleep on your back — but unfortunately, about 75% of the population finds back sleep uncomfortable and prefers to sleep on their side. The Vasseur Beauty Pillow is a specially-designed pillow that allows you to comfortably sleep on your side while keeping your delicate facial tissues away from the pillow, thus preventing sleep wrinkles.

    1. Skin Whitening?Hi everyone,I am celruntry doing some skin whitening research and would like to know more about this skin whitening thing.All I know now is that for the skin whitening topical cream to work, the cream must be able to inhibit or reduce the production of melanin. It is usually done so by using HQ which contains mercury that can induce unwanted effect.I have also come across Kojic acid along with variations of vitamin C that helps in inhibiting the enzyme which is used for producing melanin.Can anyone give me more insights on this topic and if possible tell me some of those tyrosinase inhibitor that is mercury-free if there are any. Thank you.
