There's just one unfortunate side effect of a restful night of sleep: sleep marks on your face. It's been known to happen during a blissful massage, too. Can't be having those marks on your face when you're just trying to get on with your day! Here's how to get rid of them faster.

Slap your face lightly with your hands. This helps stimulate circulation to make the skin look firmer.

Splash cold water on your face. Use ice water, if available, to help increase blood flow and plump skin up.

Massage a facial moisturizer into the skin. This helps hydrate and plump the skin while the massaging motion helps diminish the wrinkles.


Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase. These materials are less likely to wrinkle and leave sleep marks on your face than cotton or polyester.
