Sleeping is the best part of the whole day for overall health development. We need to rest after spending a hectic day in the working space. If you’re not having a better sleep every day then you tend to have Low BP that will lead to making your skin look dull. Inadequate sleeping habits will cause unattractive puffy eyes also increases the stress level. Stress will result in saggy skin and wrinkles all over the face.
If you are not sleeping properly then it will harm your face and make your skin look dull more prominently. Certain sleeping habits cause the worst scenario. Following are the five bad sleeping habits that are aging you:
Sleeping on Your Stomach or by Side
There are many sleep positions out there but, sleeping on your stomach will show the worst consequences on your skin. Sleeping on your stomach leads to wrinkles. While sleeping like that you place your face directly on the pillow, which causes friction between the pillow and your skin. Research shows that stomach sleepers often are more prone to forehead lines that can’t even cure through heavy retinol.
Sleeping in the side position also cause the second-worst damage to your skin. Side sleepers often complain about the deeper wrinkles or creases on the side of their face as well as vertical creases down their chin and cheeks.
So, try to sleep on your back, and if you’re one of them who sleeping on their backside then be sure to keep your head elevated. If you’re sleeping in a flat position then it will allow the fluid to gather around the eyes and they will appear puffy the next morning.
Sleeping with full face Makeup On
After a long day of work or a party with a full face of makeup, you tend to have so many oil, pollutants and harmful radicals into your deep facial pores. You will have breakouts that speed up the aging process. You have gathered so many pollutions on your face with makeup, and if you slept with that then it will harm your face very badly.
So, make sure to follow CTM (Cleanser, Toner, and Moisturiser) before going to bed to sleep or watching Netflix. Also, don’t sleep on the couch, give your body a comfortable sleep because tiredness leads to dark circles. Only CTM can help you to go a long way to prevent the damaged skin after your 30s.
Sleeping with dirty Bedsheet & Pillow Cover
Everyone needs proper sleeping in the night after a whole day of tiredness. No one hate sleeping everyone loves it. Even a whole week people wait for weekends to sleep for late hours. But, have you ever thought about sleeping on dirty bedsheets & Pillow Cover cause skin problems? Yes, it does cause breakout, inflammation and as well as irritation.
Mainly bachelor people don’t think about cleaning bedsheets or changing pillows cover regularly. If you’re a bachelor then you must be getting what I’m trying to say. We never thought about germs, oils, grease, dirt, and grime a dirty bedsheet can have. Also, when you place your face on that pillow cover your face touch it for the whole night and every day, it causes more damage to your face.
You sleep on average around 7 hours a night so, think about it when you sleep on a dirty bedsheet for 49 hours a week. It will produce more bacteria and you will have more pimples and oiliness on your face for the whole day.

You should clean your bed sheet & pillow cover at least once a week. So, that you can avoid this transfer of bacteria, oils, and other impurities to your skin.
You can also invest in a silk bedsheet as it prevents creasing and wrinkles. It creates less friction between your face and bedsheet or pillow cover than cotton.
Hair Everywhere on Bed & Face
