How To Prevent Wrinkles While You Sleep

Sleep Wrinkles V. Expression Wrinkles

If you are a side sleeper, you may have noticed new lines and wrinkles showing up on your face. When we sleep on our side, our faces are pressed into the pillow with our 8-10-pound head causing vertical creases. Over time, these lines become permanent and are resistant to wrinkle-reducing treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® or Jeuveau®. These treatments are also referred to as neurotoxins or neuromodulators meaning they treat wrinkles that form from muscle contractions like frowning, raising your brows, and crow’s feet when smiling. These are called expression wrinkles, which are indeed different than sleep wrinkles, but lucky you sleep wrinkles can be avoided by using a side sleeper pillow like the enVy Anti-Aging/ Anti-Wrinkle Pillow.

How The enVy Pillow Works

EnVy Pillow DesignThe enVy pillow has a patented OFF-YOUR-FACE therapeutic design. This design allows a side or back sleeper perfect spinal alignment and neck support without putting any unnecessary pressure on their faces. By minimizing face-to-pillow contact and taking the weight off the face, the pillow will prevent sleep lines that form from sleeping with your face in a traditional pillow.


Back Sleeping For The Win

For true back sleepers, the enVy pillow allows for one of the best sleeping positions for spinal health. It supports the head, neck, and spine in the most neutral position.  And according to most dermatologists, back sleeping is best for skin health. Additionally, back sleepers do not develop sleep wrinkles because their skin does not lie crumpled against the pillow all night – they also don’t get those pesky chest wrinkles! So, if anything, start sleeping on your back if you aren’t quite ready for the enVy pillow to help reduce sleep wrinkles starting tonight!

Final Thoughts

This pillow truly is the best pillow to prevent sleep wrinkles and imbalances by keeping you off your delicate facial tissue while you are side sleeping or back sleeping.  As a cosmetic physician assistant, I know the pillow is great to have post-procedure as well, plus I have my very own for home and travel because I am just so obsessed with the benefits!

A little about DEJ Eye, since is another favorite of mine!

It also shields against free radicals that cause pre-mature aging!
