Are you a side sleeper? If you are, perhaps you should start to practice sleeping on your back. Why? Although sleeping on one side doesn’t cause premature aging, but it may cause wrinkles which will make you look older than your age. How is this possible? I myself don’t have an idea, in fact, I myself is a side sleeper. According to Diana Lorenzo, M.D of Skin health, sleeping on one side can cause pressure on one side of the face which results in wrinkles in the nasolabial folds. Nasolabial fold is that area along with your nose and lips that often forms parentheses everytime you smile. No wonder I have a few lines in my nasolabial folds.
So, should I practice sleeping on my back? Of course, now that I know this fact, I will definitely practice sleeping on my back. In fact I have started it for almost a week. Other suggests that you sleep with a pillow underneath your hips so it would be hard for you to shift on the side. This may take time for you to get use to it but eventually get rid of your side sleeping habit and will not get those lines in your nasolabial folds.
