Assume the Position

Ok, all you stomach sleepers out there--listen up! In order to help prevent the formation of wrinkles, you need to learn to sleep on your back.

Sleeping on your side or stomach creates wrinkles because you bury your face in the pillow and the wrinkles are ironed onto your skin as you sleep. This won't happen if you sleep perfectly still on your back.

Man, that sucks! So much for beauty sleep.

We can use body pillows! Like they use for kiddie bumper bowling at bowling allies. Where they keep the ball in the lane but having bumpers on either side of the lane. Which I guess would technically would be called Beauty Bumpers?

That's a great idea! You should go into business with that one. :)

Er, I think that the wrinkles you get from the pillow are temporary, right?

Just to clarify. Because I saw "SLEEPING ON YOUR BELLY GIVES YOU WRINKLES!" and I wondered what kind of research you were smoking. :)

hey, life gives you wrinkles, no matter how you sleep.

some beauty "experts" out there advocate sleeping on your back to prevent wrinkles, temporary or otherwise. I don't claim to be an expert--just passing on what I hear and read.

I'm not allowed to sleep on ym stomach due to back problems. I go back and forth between the back doctors who says sleep on my back, to sleeping on my side which the ear, nose, and throat guy says is better since sleeping on my back closes off airways.

Between all that jazz, I have no time to worry about wrinkles. =-P
