And the ensuing creases used not to cause much of a problem but, whether its falling collagen levels or impending menopause, I find that those little creases last longer and longer into the day.

I always start off on my back but wake pretty much in "lying on tummy" position. It sounds a silly think to be posting about, the way the world is right now but yesterday, I had a crease in my cheek all day long. It looked like a scar. And, I'm not THAT wrinkly (see profile pics) for 50!
