A Good Pillow Helps to Reduce Sleep Lines and Facial Wrinkles

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

A Good Pillow Helps to Reduce Sleep Lines and Facial WrinklesAt night, our face tends to lose twice as much as water i.e. when our skin is in repair mode and it regenerates. There are certain things that trigger the effect of such lines on your face. Like, there are certain fabrics that absorb moisture from your skin at night. Fabrics such as satin, silk and cotton will adhere to the skin for while sleeping the face is plastered into the pillow of the skin and the jowls are downward stretched. This happens to weaken the dermal collagen. Whilst asleep, most of us move our head often and this forms creases due to the moist surface that forms wrinkles in the fabric. A few important factors producing sleep lines are:

  • The Pressure of the head
  • Nature of the Pillow Fabric
  • Water loss from the Skin

The best way to avoid sleep lines is to sleep on moisturizing fabrics that have been formulated for skin care and are considered to be one of the most advanced options of reducing facial wrinkles. Also, sleeping on your side can make the sleep lines permanent. Off late, there have been some moisturizing jeans fabrics that have made a debut to work out with wrinkles. They have got certain ingredients infused that will help them to keep you dry, comfortable and sweat free. Also, there are certain advanced dry moisture technology pillowcases available that help to reduce facial wrinkles, even without the use of creams and chemicals.

If any of you are wondering, what do sleep lines look like? Well, they are formed diagonally, on cheeks and lower face. They can also appear on forehead in vertical lines. Most of the time men get these lines on the forehead with 2 or 3 parallel lines formed on the head. For some, Crows feet appear under the eyes by sleeping on one side with the head pushed into the pillow night after night. The major cause of sleep lines is by pushing your face into the pillow and not by muscle contractions. And, unfortunately Botox does not help to reduce sleep lines. It just helps to relax the muscles that lead to facial wrinkles on moving the face. Other options to reduce lines are sleeping on anti wrinkle pillows and sleeping on your back. Well, sleeping properly is essential for beauty!

Lines, Wrinkles and Aging: Learn how to get Rid of it Naturally

Lines, Wrinkles and Aging Learn how to get Rid of it NaturallyThe process of aging is natural and inevitable and none can escape from it. As soon as we see those fine lines and wrinkles, it seems to be so depressing for all of us. However, to alleviate such problems there are loads of solutions available. I am not talking about the expensive creams and lotions available in the market. Most of us relate wrinkle treatment only with products or services. It is actually important to look at the broader picture for achieving healthy and glowing skin. And, this will certainly include a good diet.

A proper anti-aging diet is the best tool to fight signs of aging.

Anti-oxidant Rich diet: This term is commonly used these days, especially in concern with anti-aging treatments. Most of the creams available in the market also claim about the usage of anti-oxidant properties. To know the benefits of anti-oxidants, one should understand how it works. Anti-oxidants are compounds that neutralize free radicals. A free radical is an oxygen molecule and gets unstable when there is an electron missing. It will try stealing electrons from the nearby molecules and when this becomes a chain, it leads to the damage of a tissue.

Causes of development of free radicals:

  • Sun Exposure
  • Toxic Chemicals
  • Bad diet
  • Stress
  • Inflammation in the body

These effects can be countered by consumption of food rich in anti-oxidants. This is certainly not a quick fix treatment but certainly has long term benefits.

Food sources rich in anti-oxidants are available in foods like:

  • Green Tea
  • Green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, red cabbage and kale
  • Fruits like raspberries, blueberries, pineapples, pears, cherries, cranberries and strawberries
  • Herbs like turmeric and ginger
  • Almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

There are numerous types of omega 3 fatty acids. Eicosapentaenic acid (EPA) helps regulating the oil production in the skin. Although, we often relate this with lotions, creams and serums for moisturizing, however, eating foods rich in EPA can also help fight dryness. EPA also helps fight free radicals that can be used for wrinkle treatment and anti aging.

Good sources of EPA are:

  • Fish
  • Cauliflower
  • Chia Seeds
  • Perilla Oil
  • Hemp seeds
  • Brussel sprouts

Reducing Carbohydrates and Sugars is also essential for anti aging wrinkle treatment

To help skin looking youthful and radiant, reduction of carbohydrates and sugary foods is very important. And, this is due to the process called glycation. Our body’s heat will change these compounds in a process called caramelization. Certain products will stick to the structures in the skin giving it a sagging appearance.

Developing the habit of eating foods might be a little difficult for some. However, one can always experiment a lot unless they fight the healthy food that matches with their preferences. Also, consulting a dermatologist regularly will help your skin to improve and give a youthful look.
