Myth or fact: Can your sleeping position cause wrinkles?

I do my best to sleep on my back in an attempt to avoid causing unnecessary friction on my skin, but I always seem to wake up in a totally different position, but I really wonder how true is the claim that the way you sleep can cause wrinkles. 

 Myth or fact: Can your sleeping position cause wrinkles?

 I've heard countless times that it is not a good idea to sleep on your stomach because it can cause unnecessary friction and end up causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Unfortunately, it is my favorite sleeping position, and I usually struggle to sleep on my back and end up tossing and turning all night. So, is it really so? Can your sleeping position cause wrinkles? Let's find out whether it is a myth or a fact. 

Myth or fact: Can your sleeping position cause wrinkles?

Much as I would like to say it is a myth, the truth is that your sleep position can affect your skin. Sleeping on your stomach can intensify wrinkles on the chest, neck and face, but to what extent it will affect you will depend on many other factors. If your skin is more lack, it is more likely to be affected by friction when you sleep, this is the case of mature skin. 

You can try using pillowcases and sheets that minimize friction, such as those made of satin or silk fabric. 

It is also the case that if you find it very difficult to sleep on your back, it is way worse to have a poor night's sleep than sleeping in any other position. Getting enough shut-eye time is necessary for good skin. You can try using pillowcases and sheets that minimize friction, such as those made of satin or silk fabric.Also, having a consistent and solid skincare routine can help you make fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable. 

The bottom line

A good sleeping routine is paramount for all bodily functions, and sleeping is also essential for skin to repair and for skin cells to regenerate. So, if sleeping on your back is hindering your sleep, you should get a silk pillowcase that will also protect your hair and sleep tight!
