How to avoid wrinkles and puffiness after sleep

We wake up in the morning and one of the first things we rush to do (after checking our phone and messages) is to look in the mirror. We expect the skin on our face to be fresh in the morning, especially if we have slept long enough, but the view in the mirror does not always charm us. Why? Because due to our sleeping position, the fabric of the sheets and pillowcases and other reasons, the skin of the face suffers pressure, tension, friction, which affects it negatively. Sometimes our skin is left with such deep lines that we need to wait more than 10 minutes for them to disappear completely. If this happens infrequently, it wouldn't be a problem, but if you regularly see such lines and indentations on your skin, it's a good idea to take action before they become permanent.

Most common mistakes

1. We use pillowcases that are factory fabric. The better option is to sleep on a silk or satin cover. If we use a case made of smooth and sliding material, we will not get as many dents and fine lines. The less sleep marks are left on the face, the less the risk of fine lines remaining permanently.

2. Sleep with your face in the pillow, pressing your skin into the fabric. It's hard to change your sleeping position, but keep in mind that sleeping on your back will really have a positive effect on your fresh look in the morning.

3. Another common mistake is sleeping with your hands on your face. It would be best to avoid facial skin contact with other surfaces while sleeping. It is the silk pillowcase that will help minimize the pressure and rubbing of the face against the fabric.

Preventive measures

1. Night masks do a wonderful job of keeping the skin while you sleep, even if there is pressure or tension, the skin doesn't shrink like it would without a mask.

2. Try sleeping with your head up on the pillow without burying your face in it and without touching it with your hands or putting your hands under the pillow.

3. If you are a side sleeper and find it difficult to start sleeping on your back, add an extra pillow and strategically position your head so that the lower part of your face is not resting on the pillow. This will prevent the skin from pressing and rubbing against the fabric.
