does sleeping on your side cause wrinkles?
i always though this was just an old wives tale but this is what i just read that sleeping on your side does create fold lines that eventually turn into permanent wrinkles if repeated night after night. sleeping on your back does the opposite by helping to counter the effects of gravity from the day when you're upright. some japanese researches said that in a study of 38 men and women there was more wrinkling in the afternoon than the morning. during the day your face basically just falls with the gravity throughout the day so night time is the only opportunity you have to try and reverse it.
this really sucks because i can never sleep on my back no matter how hard i try i always end up on my side. :Angry: any recommendations on how to sleep on your back if it's not the normal way you sleep? not even sleeping pills do it for me so i don't know how to change the way i sleep.

:confused: there's probably SOME TRUTH behind that but i don't know if that's for sure. think about it- if it was about gravity as they say then how about people that go their whole lives only sleeping on one side? shouldn't that side of the face look different than the other? no one ever has that they have the same aging on both sides. and according to their theory of gravity if u sleep on one side of your face your other side should be fine since you're allowing gravity to heal itself. so yeah i dont know if i believe this or not. mushing your head in a pillow im sure isnt good but i not everyone that sleeps on their sides do this.

wait if sleeping on your back makes your face sink back into place then they should look into if that has something to do with jawline because some people have the fat just covering their neck and based on waht they say that should mean that if you sleep on your side your jawline should be better because it falls back into the side of your neck

oK tell me if i'm wrong but I had thought that the positions we sleep in is from our position in our mother's womb. If we curled up we sleep on our side if we were spread out we sleep on our stomach etc. Can anyone confirm if this is true? All I know is I sleep on my side and I'm not able to sleep on my back no matter how hard I try. I think there has to be something genetic or whatever linked to the way we sleep because it's not just as simple as switching positions for most ppl.
I woke up like 20 times last night trying not to sleep on my face. I sleep with my hand on my face and have been trying to get out of that habit. So last night I kid you not, I kept waking up paranoid that I was sleeping on my face. I was so sleepy this morning. So instead of wrinkles I now have bags under my eyes.

Dear Kelly Bubbles,
Yes, sleeping on your side does cause wrinkles. It's scientifically documented that sleeping on your side causes wrinkles. In regards to la_angel's post. If you talk to any dermatologist, they will tell you that they can determine which side of the face you sleep on. They have to add more fillers to the side that you sleep on, sometimes twice as much.
Fortunately, there is a solution coming to rock your world soon. It's called the young4ever pillow. It will be out in about a month. Check at young4everpillow.com. It's made out of temperpedic quality foam and the ear holes promote sleeping in the optimal position for getting the most anti-wrinkle benefit, which is all about not sleeping on your face and transferring the weight of your head to your face. Stay-tuned. Don't buy the other pillows on the market. Thanks.

Your post caught my attention ...while perhaps its true that sleeping on your side causes some wrinkles I can't believe it would be nearly as bad as the sun or genetics. I think you could drive yourself crazy trying to control your sleep, and then if you don;t get enough sleep your stress level could go up, leading you to look and feel worse than any wrinkles that sleeping on your side would bring!

It was completely false i saw many people sleeping side did not have any effect on the skin particularly the wrinkles.

Yep, it does.
Yes, sleeping on your side can cause wrinkles in *some* people. I was a side sleeper and a few years ago I would wake up every morning and actually see the creases from my pillow on the sides of my eyes & face. They went away, but after a year or so they started to stay! I had to train myself to sleep on my back and now they are much better. However, when I occasionally sleep on my sides, the lines are there. I know other people who can sleep on their sides with no affects, but I am not one of them. Looking for a good eye cream now.

I guess sleeping on side's doesn't effect any thing but its beneficial if you sleep on your right side
