Sleep Lines – Why Sleeping May Cause Wrinkles ?
If you've been subscribing to the notion that a girl needs her beauty sleep, you may want to reconsider. Apparently, visits to slumberland may cause wrinkles.
A friend of mine often complained about the lines on his lower eyelids that appeared like an eye bag despite religiously getting eight hours of sleep every night. On closer examination, there are triagular shaped creases on both his lower eye lids which are not typical of a true eye bag, tear trough or eye bulge. A photo taken when he was lying on his side suggested the root cause of his “eye bag” - they are actually sleep lines.
My friend lying on his side, with his lower eyelid skin cramped by the pillow. The opposite lower eyelid showed similar permanent creases due to his face being plastered into the pillow night after night.
Sleep lines tell the story of your restful nap. However, resting your face on the pillow in the same way every night for years on end may lead to wrinkles known as “sleep lines”. Eventually, these lines no longer disappear when the head is not resting on the pillow and becomes permanently etched on the skin surface.
Sleep lines are sometimes single but are usually characterized by 2 to 3 parallel lines in the same area of the face, such as the temples, forehead, around the eyes and mouth. Sleeping on your side can also cause the skin to wrinkle in the laugh lines and chest.
