The type of pillowcase you use can have an effect on how quickly your face ages. This is according to skincare expert Laura Lynch.
According to Daily Mail, Lynch revealed sleeping on cotton pillowcases could be adding years to your looks.
Lying face-down into your pillow or on the side could also cause ageing.
Lynch suggests opting for silk pillowcases.
“Cotton doesn’t allow for the skin to slide so it catches the skin, pulling it into a position and it doesn’t really allow the skin to bounce back to its natural form,” Lynch said as quoted on Daily Mail.
“Silk is a natural fibre, it’s hypoallergenic, it allows for the skin to breathe and it allows the skin to slide over the surface.
“So it doesn’t pull at the skin and therefore prevents these wrinkles from occurring.”
Lynch also warned against sleeping face-down into the pillow or on the side as it causes ageing.
“If you’re creasing your face constantly against your pillow, you could also be causing a permanent wrinkle,” Lynch added.
“If you’re a side sleeper or a tummy sleeper, you can definitely find that those positions would cause creases or lines to form on your skin.
“Even though they may disappear couple of hours after you wake up in the morning, overtime, they can cause the development of lines and wrinkles.”
