I asked my friends - most of them sleep on their sides or on stomachs.

Unfortunately, these positions also mean there's constant pressure on our face for around eight hours each night.

Just imagine: 8 (EIGHT) hours pressure on your skin!
Over time, this repetitive pressure and movement creates permanent wrinkles on our face.
But when you sleep on your back, your face and decolletage aren't crumpled. They aren't crushed or squished. This allow the skin on these areas to benefit most from our sleep and skincare regimen.


I made the decision to actively train myself to sleep on my back - to form a new habitage. My june habitage challenge.

What do you think?

If I sleep on my back, I snore and I wake up with a very dry mouth and throat. I also have a horrible lower backache. For me those are bigger issues than wrinkles.

I've heard of this.....a silk pillowcase is supposed to help. BUT... as long as you take care of your skin & yourself, IMO it's kinda looking for a fake problem to fix. It's not going to keep me from sleeping on my side & cuddling with my fiance.

I have a similar issue. I have allergies and get postnasal drip on my back. I either wake up coughing, with a snort, or because I get a glob of mucus stuck in my throat and can’t breathe. Sleeping on your left side is best for your digestion, which is also better for your skin in other ways.

I sleep on my right side, my left side, my stomach, my back. Then I start at the beginning and do it alllll over again. All night, every night.
It’s a rare night that I get in bed and fall asleep right away and stay in the same position.

You're dreaming if you think you're staying on your back ALL night OP.

It would be a dream if I actually slept 8 hours.

I've always heard the same so start out on my left side. I have allergies as well and if I end up on my back in the middle of the night - I will wake myself snoring because I can't breathe.

Sleeping on my back hurts my back, and comfort and good sleep are way too important to me. I don't have any wrinkles that I think are caused by sleeping. Most of my wrinkles are crows feet, laugh lines, and forehead expressions. Botox it is.

I know women that try to sleep on their backs, but it is to limit chest/décolleté wrinkles and not really a preventative for face and eyes. Perhaps trying a cool gel mask might help accomplish diminishing wrinkles in the eye area. The cooling will shrink skin and pores, and the mask will hold things in place regardless of your position - in theory.

It's a goal that's doable. I've read that about sleeping positions. I don't know if it's true.

I now sleep about 3/4 to the side...partly back, partly side. Not fully either, if that makes sense.

I used to sleep on my back. Another poster said people can't sleep on their backs all night, but they can. I did. I went to sleep on my back and stayed on my back all night, as far as I know, and woke up on my back. It was my natural sleeping position. Don't know why it changed a bit. Maybe the position of my tv.

I'm more concerned about sagging than wrinkles, although if there's an easy way to prevent wrinkles, I'm all for it.

I'm getting a silk pillowcase soon (a gift). I've heard that silk helps prevent wrinkles. That doesn't make sense to me, but I guess I'll have a chance to see if that's true.
