Sleep and Wrinkles



When it comes to aging and skin care, most people focus on fighting fine lines after they develop. But because wrinkles are caused by a combination of genetics, the environment (think sun exposure), and behavior, prevention is just as crucial. That said you might be surprised to know that some of the casual things you do each day could be affecting how you age gracefully.

Sleeping on your Side
Sleeping on your stomach or side might feel relaxing to you, but it can be traumatizing to your skin cells since they are thrust against your pillow. Lay on your back instead to take the pressure of and give your skin a well deserved rest. And don't forget to squeeze in a minimum of 7-8 hours a night to allow your body a chance to rejuvenate.

Quick Fix: Apply a retinol serum before hitting the sack like glo therapeutics Retinol CS. Since they make the skin more sensitive to UV light, these are perfect for night time.
