POST + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN
Wrinkles are a part of life and there are ones we can’t prevent but others that we can. Smile lines around our eyes and mouth are from being happy and enjoying life. You can’t do anything about those unless you go around with a blank stare on your face at all times. (Ok, yes botox and fillers help but that’s another post for another time). And personally, I think smile lines around the eyes are pretty and I wear mine like a badge of honor! But there are also 8 hours a day, 56 hours a week, 2,912 hours a year that we spend sleeping. Those hours really add up! So don’t spend them making sleep lines too! When we put pressure against a pillow, we are pressing the skin forward, creating a crease or a “line” anywhere there is pressure forward. Luckily, there are anti-wrinkle pillows (or at least sleeping techniques and positions) that can help prevent sleep lines. And they’re surprisingly really comfortable!! For real! Once you start sleeping without smashing your face against your pillow, you’ll never want to go back.
