Wrong sleeping position can accelerate aging?

Heart of beauty in everyone. Modern people work hard every day, lose weight and shape, and finally they can sleep comfortably, but they still have to accept a cruel reality: if the sleeping position is incorrect, people will grow old.

Aesthetic Surgery Journal of the American Academy of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has published an article entitled “Sleep Wrinkles: Facial Aging and Facial Distortion During Sleep” The article believes that wrinkles appear on the fault lines of aging skin, and these fault lines may be due to skin deformation caused by facial expressions or deformation caused by mechanical compression during sleep. In other words, a bad sleeping posture will not only cause wrinkles on the skin, but may also cause facial skin to expand.

Wrong sleeping position can cause wrinkles
Sleep wrinkles will occur as the face is squeezed and deformed during sleep. Sleep wrinkles are different from expression wrinkles. It does not involve the contraction of internal muscles. Its direction is not perpendicular to the direction of muscle contraction, and its position is not limited by ligaments and muscle contraction sites.

When lying on the side, the compression of the gravity of the face, the tension of the pillow plane, and the shearing force of the face lying on the pillow plane will press out folds on the face and produce wrinkles. When lying on your side, your face is squeezed and your skin is deformed. Repeated squeezing multiple times will cause wrinkles on the skin or deeper wrinkles.

The average daily sleep time of a person is 7 to 8 hours. Once most people have determined a certain habit of sleeping, there will generally be no change throughout the year, because this is the body’s most comfortable sleeping position. Sleeping in the same posture for such a long period of time will gradually produce sleep wrinkles.

Sleep wrinkles are different from expression wrinkles. Squeeze the sides of your face with your hands. The wrinkles are the most common sleep wrinkles. There are no expression lines for the treatment of sleep wrinkles. The improvement of expression lines can use botulinum toxin to reduce nerve control of muscles and reduce wrinkles caused by muscle contraction; while sleep wrinkles have nothing to do with muscles, botulinum toxin has no effect on it. Therefore, the only reliable way to reduce sleep wrinkles is to avoid facial distortion and do not squeeze the face when sleeping.

Wrong sleeping position can make people ugly
Face squeezed for a long time while sleeping will make people develop the habit of breathing with mouth, and mouth breathing during long-term sleep will cause dental and maxillofacial deformities. When some people lie on their sides, their faces are squeezed and their mouths open, which also causes us to be in a state of breathing while sleeping. Those who sleep and drool should be vigilant. For minors, it is more important to pay attention to the sleeping posture. Once the face shape is fixed, it is difficult to change.

What sleeping position should be adopted
Sleeping also has the risk of getting old and ugly, so what kind of sleeping position should be adopted?

Supine is the best sleeping position, because the face and the pillow are not in contact at all, it will not cause compression and friction on the face, and it is also very beneficial to the health of the spine; half-side lying is also a good sleeping position, which is a kind of lying between supine Between the side and the side, the body and the bed form an inclination angle of 30 to 40 degrees, which not only ensures blood circulation throughout the body, but also does not cause facial wrinkles.

Replacing the pillow with a silkier silky material can also reduce sleep wrinkles.

I would like to remind you that those who have a strange sleeping posture and those who are crooked should correct their sleeping posture in time. We cannot avoid facial aging caused by age, but these small details in life can be corrected completely with a little attention. This is an important matter concerning our face value.
