The Best Sleeping Position to Prevent Facial Wrinkles

Download Transcript

Dermatologists and chiropractors are telling women to sleep on their back to prevent facial wrinkles. This is a bad idea since most modern humans can’t breathe properly while sleeping on their backs. This is due to slowly shrinking faces and airways over the past 100 years, mainly due to the modern soft Western diet, infant bottle-feeding, and multiple exposures to environmental toxins. In fact, for most people, sleeping on the back may cause more facial wrinkles due to much lower sleep quality.

Shrinking of the facial bones causes wrinkles to be more pronounced as you age or have poor health habits since there’s less structural support to stretch out the skin. Internally, narrowed jaws lead to laxity of upper airway soft tissues, predisposing to more narrowing while sleeping on the back, muscle relaxation during sleep, inflammation, and swelling, or even weight gain.

Medical complications happen if you’re normally a side or stomach sleep and are forced to sleep on your back (due to an injury or surgery), or voluntarily (recommended by doctors). Strategies are provided to be able to sleep on your side more comfortably.
