4 Tips to Sleep Your Way to Smoother Skin

Getting and maintaining wrinkle-free skin is a 24/7 job. Here’s how to work the nightshift.

1. Switch to satin pillowcases.

This material will help your facial skin slide on the pillow rather than bunching up and creasing.

2. Wear socks and gloves to bed.

Lots of women moisturize their hands and feet before bed, but then overlook the most important step: slipping on thin-fabric gloves and socks to keep that beneficial moisture on your skin instead of the sheets.

3. Learn to sleep on your back.

Sleeping face down isn’t so good for your skin. Putting a pillow under your knees makes it easier and more comfortable to stay on your back.

4. Raise the head of the bed.

Putting blocks or bricks under the legs at the head of the bed will help reduce blood pooling and under-eye puffiness. And bonus! It may help ease your husband’s snoring by opening his airways.
