The Surprising Way Eyelash Extensions Can Improve Your Health Overnight

Did you know that caring for your eyelash extensions can dramatically improve your health and complexion? It’s one of the first things Linda teaches her clients and, surprisingly, it all comes down to your sleeping position.

The #1 Best Sleeping Position for Eyelash Extensions and a Youthful Glow

Sleeping on your back is the best position to greatly extend the life and health of your lash extensions. The key is minimizing the friction and pressure on your face and eyelashes that naturally comes with sleeping on your side or stomach.

In addition to protecting your eyelashes, did you know that a side-benefit of back sleeping is a youthful glow? Back sleepers are less likely to develop premature wrinkles and sleep lines that come from the pressure of your pillow during the night. This position also aids in maintaining face symmetry compared to side sleepers and it helps diminish swelling and puffiness, especially around the eyes. 

The Healthiest Sleeping Position for Most People

There are many additional health benefits to sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your back allows your head, neck, and spine to rest in a neutral position, resulting in less discomfort. Back sleepers experience a better night sleep and seldom wake up due to poor circulation in the arms and legs. Sleeping while facing the ceiling is ideal for warding off acid reflux. Just be sure to use a pillow that elevates your head so that your stomach is below your esophagus, preventing acid from coming up your digestive tract.

What if You Can’t or Shouldn’t Sleep On Your Back

However, snoozing on your back can cause the tongue to block the breathing tube, making it a dangerous position for those who suffer from sleep apnea (a condition that causes periods of breathlessness). This position can also make snoring more severe. A loose, fetal position (where you’re on your side and your torso is hunched and your knees are bent)—especially on your left side—is great if you’re pregnant.

As a compromise, side sleepers can practice sleeping with their bottom leg bent rather than their top. This is a great compromise, as it helps elevate the face out of the pillow. Another step for side sleepers is to purchase a pillowcase made from bamboo fibers or natural silk; both of which are a  great improvement over cotton for pampering the skin and lashes.

Linda’s Tips to Become a Back Sleeper

  • Get the right mattress support to lay flat. A soft mattress allows your butt to sink.
  • Get the right support for your neck. A rolled-up towel can oftentimes do the trick.
  • Get a pillow for under your knees. The pillow you want should support your natural curves.
  • Try adding pillows to either side to gently remind your body not to roll over

So, if you want to improve your overall glow while taking care of your extensions, consider sleeping on your back. You’ll look your best while improving your health and complexion! No extra charge!
