I'm trying to break the habit of how my face comfortably lays on my pillow when I sleep. I like to sleep on my side and therefore cheek is on the pillow. How do you sleep?

I don't think sleeping on your face actually causes wrinkles does it? I understand acne cause of the oil and grime, but wrinkles?

I think you could search for a "Save My Face" pillow, as that allows you to sleep on your side without crushing your face into the pillow.

Remember that when your sleeping, if you sleep on your side, your pushing your face against the pillow which can act as resistance to the facial tissue. Many have got wrinkles who sleep on their side, and there are quite a few derms etc who say that doing so encourages wrinkles!

I will be an advocate for the Save My Face pillow. I've been using the mini pillow for a few years now and it has definitely been a face saver seeing I could never sleep on my back with having sleep apnea.
It does its intended job beautifully and keeps my face elevated just enough to keep all the important parts from smashing in to the pillow and I don't wake up with those pressure wrinkles that take an hour or so to go away.

....and it's still holding up after a few years of use!

I usually sleep on my right side and I have less wrinkles on that side. I don't think it matters.

How you sleep on your face does cause wrinkles. I hear this from many dermatologists, they tell me to try to prevent sleeping on my face if i'm worried about wrinkles in the long run because your cheek is pressed up to the pillow causing your cheek to smoosh upwards creating creases for crowsfeet

tips on how to prevent wrinkles
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Prevent-Wrinkle

Sleeping Positions. Resting your face on the pillow in the same way every night for years on end also leads to wrinkles. Called sleep lines, these wrinkles eventually become etched on the surface of the skin and no longer disappear when the head is not resting on the pillow. Women, who tend to sleep on their sides, are most likely to see these lines appear on their chin and cheeks. Men tend to notice these lines on the forehead since they usually sleep with the face pressed face down on the pillow. People who sleep on their backs do not develop these wrinkles since their skin does not lie crumpled against the pillow.

I'm beginning to think that if your skin care routine is good enough, then sleep position doesn't matter too much. Take Dr Susan Evans, for instance, who sleeps face down with her face totally smooshed into her pillow--and not a line on her face!

I toss and turn heavily when I sleep. Those of you with a save my face pillow, it seems that the pillow is awfully small. Do you manage to sleep on it all night? Or do you shift and turn and somehow end up waking up off the pillow?

I sleep on my side (though I try and try not to) and I sometimes wake up with a deep crease on my right cheek. On some days, it takes a full DAY for the crease to go away... Crying or Very sad I do believe that if I don't break this habit, the crease will turn into an ugly wrinkle!

I have a Save My Face Pillow but it is too small for me, or just hard to get used to. I am trying to force myself to learn to sleep on m back but it has been so hard! It is getting easier and easier though as time goes by so who knows!

I have silk pillowcases - they work but are expensive. I now buy cheap satin and make my own cases, and it works just as well, maybe better than the silk ones (I used to wake up with hideous creases from my cotton case, but since using satin my face is fine when I wake up).

(There is no WAY I can sleep on my back, just cannot do it. My brain simply refuses to switch off until I roll onto my stomach - I sleep with my face all swallowed up by my pillow, it's a wonder I don't suffocate Laughing )
