We love to sleep. We must admit that jumping into our bed with fresh sheets and new pyjamas on is our idea of heaven. We could snooze all day long, but we’re not living in a dream world. We drag ourselves out of bed in the early hours of the morning and make our way to work in a sleepy haze.
Sadly, researchers have found that some sleeping habits are terrible for our skin.
Everyone sleeps differently, you may spread your limbs out in every direction, curl up into a ball like a mouse or snooze on your side.
Many of us will sleep on our stomachs with our faces placed on our soft, fluffy pillow. It may feel like heaven, but this sleeping position is not good for your skin.
The U.K Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service has discovered that the majority of people sleep on their fronts, but this sleeping position causes acne.
Experts revealed that sleeping on your front causes Acne Mechanica, which is caused by rubbing and excessive pressure on the skin. They explained that sleeping on your front puts too much weight on your skin due to the position of your body.
Not only does this sleep position cause spots, but it also causes wrinkles and puffy skin.
The best way to sleep is on your back, according to researchers. They claim that sleeping on your back promotes healthier skin.
This sleep position also reduces wrinkles, as well as healing neck and back pain.
