Many of us don't realize the mistakes we are making while we sleep at night. Did you know simply sleeping on your side can give you cleavage wrinkles or chest wrinkles? Yes, to all you ladies out there who like to curl up in a fetal position or sleep on the side, here's some bad news.
Wrinkles can happen as a result of aging as well, but the mechanism of chest wrinkles is completely different. Here are certain points you should beware about.
So what could be done?
Yes, a specialized foam bra is designed for all you side sleepers to help you sleep comfortably on your side without any worry.
They keep your breasts in place and avoid any sagging which can result in the wrinkles.
It's a triangular or a heart shaded padded structure which works with the same mechanism like the pillow bra but is slightly smaller in size.
That is easier said than done, but keep trying and you might eventually develop the habit of sleeping on your back. Try crowding your sides with some pillows so that you aren't tempted to turn to your side during the night.
Make sure you properly moisturize your chest region before you go to bed. Dry skin causes more wrinkling and hence, the chance of chest wrinkles increases.
Junk food, high sugar or high carbs should be avoided at night because that might make you feel bloated hence you won't be comfortable on your back. Try eating in limited quanity and not stuffing yourself during the night.
