This post looks at how to reduce chest wrinkles from sleeping, with tips on how to prevent and minimize wrinkles with simple changes to your sleep habits and skincare routine.
The skin between your breasts is particularly prone to wrinkles because it is so thin and delicate. In fact, it’s one of the first places to show signs of aging.
But did you know that the number one cause of chest wrinkles is from sleeping? When you sleep on your side, the skin on your chest starts to fold from the weight of your breasts, creating skin creases.
It can be very frustrating to wake up to a chest that has seemingly aged overnight, with sleeping creases that take hours to fade. And over time, these lines can become permanently etched into your skin.
The good news is that with a bit of effort and the right strategies, you can smooth out those chest wrinkles and wake up looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
So, let’s dive in and learn how to get rid of chest wrinkles from sleeping for good!
1. Change Your Sleeping Position
To prevent chest wrinkles caused by your sleeping position, learn to sleep on your back. Sleeping on your back can also help reduce wrinkles on your face, as it stops the skin from pressing into your pillow.
On a separate note, sleeping on your back is also great for spinal alignment.
2. Use a Breast Sleep Pillow
If you can’t stop sleeping on your side, then a breast pillow (like the Intimia Breast Pillow sold on Amazon) is the next best option.
These pillows provide support so that your breasts aren’t squashed together while sleeping, creating skin creases that can lead to wrinkles.
3. Silicone Patches
Silicone chest pads or patches are used as an overnight treatment to correct chest wrinkles by preventing the folding of the skin while you sleep. They also have the added benefit of locking in moisture, so the skin stays hydrated.
This can help in smoothing out existing wrinkles. And although this isn’t a permanent result, it can offer a day-long solution.
4. Collagen Supplements
Collagen supplements help promote the body’s natural production of collagen. Adequate collagen production, supported by collagen supplements, strengthens and rejuvenates skin from the inside out.
An additional benefit of collagen is that it can promote skin hydration. Dehydrated and dry skin can increase the appearance of skin wrinkling after sleeping.
5. Professional Treatments
If you have deep-rooted chest wrinkles caused by sleeping, home treatments may not be enough to get rid of them. Professional treatments, including laser surfacing and microneedling, can be very effective at treating the skin on the décolleté.
These treatments renew the skin’s surface, reducing the appearance of aging skin. However, since the skin in the chest area is so thin, it’s important to know that you should avoid aggressive treatments that could damage or scar your skin.
Two popular procedures that are gentle enough for the chest are: Clear + Brilliant Laser and Vivace RF Microneedling.
6. Targeted Skincare
Targeted skin care is the key flawless cleavage. Keeping this area moisturized and nourished with rejuvenating ingredients is a non-negotiable!
When looking to care for your chest area, look for products containing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and peptides.
While most of these products can be multipurpose, some are targeted purposely for chest and neck applications. We recommend using targeted creams and serums that contain ingredients that will keep your neck and chest skin looking smooth and glowing.
Use a high quality anti-aging neck and décolleté serum such as Sublime Uplift. It contains shiitake mushroom extract and is clinically proven to reduce neck lines and chest wrinkles.
Wake up to an ageless décolleté
Your chest, just like any area of your body, deserves a proper skincare regimen. Applying quality skincare at night before you go to bed and in the morning after you wake up will ensure that your décolleté remains smooth and youthful.
Get started by treating your skin to Sublime Uplift Neck and Décolleté Firming Serum.
