Sleep on your back 6-8 hours a night.
Sleep is when some of the most important internal — and epidermal — recovery takes place! You can almost immediately tell that getting a poor night of sleep doesn’t do wonders for your face. This by far s the most difficult for me. I’m a stomach sleeper and I’m starting to wake up with a vertical wrinkle on my forehead 😫. Wrinkles are caused by the loss of collagen and elasticity, which reduces skin volume. But applying repeated pressure (such as sleeping with the side of your face on a pillow) or muscle motions (such as laughing and squinting) against the collagen will promote its breakdown, eventually leading to visible lines. Research even says that one night of poor sleep can cause:
* Hanging eyelids
* Sleep wrinkles
* Swollen eyes
* Darker undereye circles
* Paler skin
* More wrinkles and fine lines
* More droopy corners of the mouth
So do your skin well, and get your sleep on!
