If you aren’t already familiar with the virtues of sleeping on your back, we’ll sum it up for you: less wrinkles and acne. This is because sleeping on your stomach or side means you’re smashing your face into your pillowcase, which may or may not be clean (enter breakouts), and the smooshing and stretching of one’s face for 8 hours a night is a recipe for wrinkles. The hard part? Training yourself to sleep on your back. But don’t worry, it can be done. Follow the link below for a breakdown of why the position is currently uncomfortable to you, and how to change it. Because let’s be real- wrinkles and breakouts are already an inevitable part of life that you don’t want to contribute to the deterioration of your beauty for 8 hours a night.
