Additionally fatigue and overall feeling of tiredness cause wrinkles to appear on the face. Therefore it is necessary to get 6-8 hours of sleep to ensure skin healthy recovery each night.

In addition to the number of hours we get of sleep, the position we sleep in also affects our skins possibility for wrinkles. Overtime sleeping upside down causes wrinkles to appear until they become permanently engrained within the skin.

Side sleeping causes chin and cheek wrinkles where as stomach sleeping can cause crow’s feet and a furrowed brow.
