You’ve most likely read up on the latest and greatest elixirs to keep those lines and wrinkles at bay and you know the importance of getting enough beauty sleep because itÂ helps your skin repair, restore, and rebalance itself.
Wouldn’t it be lousyÂ then, ifÂ the slumber you’re getting is actually aging you? If you’re not sleeping on your back, chances are good it’s doing just that. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) warns that sleeping in certain positions — such as on your stomach or side — presses your face against your pillow, creating lines and creases when you wake up. Unfortunately, after nightly repetition, these wrinkles can become permanent. Their recommendation? Sleep on your back!
As you might imagine,Â switching sleep positions is easier said than done. The answer might lie inÂ JuveRestÂ® The Sleep Wrinkle PillowÂ ($179). It was invented by leading plastic surgeon, Goesel Anson, MD, FACS to inhibit wrinkles caused by facial compression during sleep. It also encourages comfortable sleeping on your back, and it accommodates those that sleep on the side, allowing minimal facial contact, and promoting properÂ neck and back alignment. Now, that’s some serious pillow talk! Â Sweet dreamsâ€¦
