How To Say Goodbye to Wrinkles for Good

Jan 9, 2008
Your skin is incredibly delicate. Everything you do during the day has an impact on it, whether it is sitting near a smoker, not drinking enough water, constantly touching your face or not sleeping at night. Yes, that is correct. You are slowly but surely damaging your skin by ignoring doctor's orders to get eight hours of sleep every night. And, what's more is that your insomnia can be expediting the aging process, starting with causing excessive wrinkles on your face.

Sleep is the body's natural way of being able to renew and replenish itself. All of your major organs are at rest, and thus have the opportunity to gently repair themselves while you are off in slumber land. Any bouts of restlessness during the night can interfere with this process and have tremendous effects on your health, and also your appearance. Keep in mind that the largest organ you have is your skin. It covers all of you, but more importantly, your face is the first thing that people see everyday. If you are tired of hearing that same line, 'you look old', then it's time you did something about it.

One thing to be aware of is that the firmness in your skin comes from the natural production of collagen and elastin. Since this gives elasticity to your skin, not having it in normal amounts would contribute to having wrinkles, particularly on your face. When the body is given a chance to rest, it will be able to increase production of these two substances so that you look fresh and new when you wake. People who have trouble sleeping are so much more likely to have wrinkles because they only nap during the night, making their bodies work harder for much longer.

Also, if you have ever heard people mention that skin has a natural glow to it, you can attribute this to a good night of sleep. People suffering from insomnia may have extremely pallid skin because the skin cells do not have a chance to revitalize. Thus, essentially they are walking around with dead skin - literally. People go through a type of molting process that allows a new layer of skin to shine through. Sleeping will provide this, and help to fight the aging process, provided that you keep it healthy.

It is important to remember to sleep on your back if you want to remain wrinkle free. Over time, the material from your pillows can continually press against your face during the night, and cause permanent folds. But you might find it uncomfortable to sleep on your back all the time, so switching it up is never a bad thing.

Who knew that sleeping for a full night could allow you to look so fine? Consider your face is a blank canvas, and a regular sleeping cycle is the paintbrush. Sleeping well is the number one way to prevent wrinkles and keep you looking young, fresh and oh so lovely.
