Dr. Ross Clevens knows how important sleep is when it comes to the fight against aging, but also how you sleep can make a big difference. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, sleeping in certain positions—on your side or face-down in the pillow—causes “sleep lines” on your face, neck and chest. After many nights of slumbering in the same position, they can become long-lasting wrinkles. This is particularly true of the nasal-labial fold, which is the line that runs from the nose to the mouth.  You can test for sleep lines yourself [versus regular wrinkles] by simply applying pressure to the side you sleep on. If the lines are duplicated and accented, your lines are most likely sleep lines.

 While certain sleep positions can cause individuals to appear older than their true age, Dr. Clevens recommends changing your sleep habits.  For starters, try sleeping on your back.  It's the cheapest and most effective way to smooth out sleep lines for both face and chest.   If this seems all too uncomfortable for you, the next step is to use this time to infuse your skin with antioxidants and wrinkle-fighting products.
