1. Tie up your hair

Braid it, stick it in a pony, or whip it into a high top knot, but whatever you do, tuck those tresses out of the way. Keeping your hair away from your face helps prevent oils from your hair from transferring to your face and causing acne,

2. Sleep on your back

"One of the worst things you can do is sleep on your face, When you sleep on your stomach or on your side, your face scrunches against your pillow and that contributes to added lines and wrinkles on your face. Lines you get from sleeping face-down tend to be vertical and are much harder to take care of.

3. Invest in fancy pillowcases

Satin pillowcases may cost more than the cotton ones that come in your average sheet set, but they're worth it when it comes to looking flawless in the morning. Especially if you really have trouble sleeping face-up.
