I'm guess half of us are side sleepers. Here is something you are not aware of - sleep lines. I didn't notice this until I reached my age (48). I realized I'm a natural side sleeper. It doesn't matter if I sleep on my back when I head to bed because by the morning I'll end up on the side. This wasn't a problem until a couple days ago. Since the weather was getting a little warmer I've been sleeping in a camisole. I woke up one morning and notice the wrinkles on my chest that took hours to go away. Immediately, I realize this could lead to premature wrinkles if I don't fix my habit now.
Here's why: 1. I'm sleeping in that position on an average 6-8 hours every night. As I age, the line will probably take longer to fade.
2. By sleeping on the side I also put more pressure on one side of my face. I can understand why the right side of my eye bags are more severe.

Solution: Start sleeping on your back.

If you find it uncomfortable stack up on the pillows or invest in a micro memory foam. What I also like doing put another pillow under my leg to keep me in that position (it also help my back pain).
Make the change today and don't start too late! It's hard to reverse the first wrinkle!

@redridergirl and @nannysally have you tried rosehip oil? It's suppose to help with fine lines.

@mikayla @nannysally I haven't heard of rosehip oil. I will check for it around town. What do we do just put it as it is on our wrinkles? I'll try most things to help the entire aging process! Thank you for this great info!

@redridergirl yes, putting it on your skin helps smooth out wrinkles, fine lines and stretch marks. Also works as a moisturizer and gives your skin a healthy glow.
