Getting about eight hours of sleep every night will help your body recuperate and fight off illnesses; it will also help your skin rejuvenate itself and stay healthy. To help you protect your eyes against wrinkles while you sleep, we have created a brief guide. Read on to learn more.

Eye Cream

You’ve heard of face cream and foot cream, but have you ever tried eye cream? Designed with a gentle formula and your eyes in mind, eye cream works to lock in the moisture under your eyes both during the day and at night. As one of the most sensitive parts of your face, the skin under your eyes often gets neglected and can dry out. However, by wearing an eye cream to bed every night, you can lock in the moisture and help fight against wrinkles.

Satin Pillowcases

It may sound a bit lavish and extreme, but did you know that by sleeping on a satin pillowcase every night you can help protect your eyes from forming wrinkles around them. By sleeping on a cloth pillowcase, it can wrinkle which can cause wrinkles on your skin. However, by resting on a smooth, satin pillowcase every night, you won’t have to worry about the fabric wrinkling and causing you skin damage.

Clean Pillowcases

Your pillowcase is notorious for harboring oils and bacteria that can cause you to breakout and even form wrinkles. When oils from your head rub off onto your pillowcase, that same oil can spread to your face. To protect your skin from these skin problems, you should be switching out your pillowcase every few days— the cleaner your pillowcase is, the better condition your skin will be in.

Taking good care of the skin under and around your eyes is as simple as wearing an eye cream to bed, and sleeping on clean, satin pillowcases every night. If you would like to learn more about how you can take better care of the skin around your eyes, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today!
