Prevent wrinkles with a pillow? Why, yes, you can!
According to WebMD, the American Academy of Dermatologists has found that when you sleep in certain positions, wrinkles become etched into the skin, and they don’t disappear when you get up. Side sleeping increases wrinkles on the chin and cheeks, while sleeping on your stomach can cause a furrowed brow. You can help prevent these wrinkles by sleeping on your back (Bouchez, 2016).
My problem is that I’m a side sleeper, and sometimes I wake up on my stomach, so my face gets all contorted, and I’m sure my chest does, too. I just cannot seem to get comfortable in any other position because my neck gets sore. I’ve even tried those weird-shaped pillows that have a cutout for your face, and they were too lumpy and just didn’t work.
I’ve tried all sorts of foam pillows, but when I saw the Save and Soft Gel Pillow, I noticed that the raised parts were different heights, so there was a greater chance of comfort. On top of that, I’m one of those people who always flips my pillow over to the “cool” side. This Save and Soft Gel Pillow has a gel layer that keeps your head cool. Could this possibly be what I need to sleep comfortably on my back?
When the pillow came in, I noticed that because of the foam, it had the advantage of both a soft pillow and a firm pillow. It was substantial, but “cushy” at the same time, if that makes sense…lol! It even came in a handy-dandy case with a handle, which was actually helpful since I did take it on a little overnight trip.
I tried the pillow both ways, and found the side with the larger “bump” better supported my neck. I could easily turn my head slightly to the side, and still be comfortable, and it kept me cool, too. I also noticed that I didn’t have any shoulder cramping like I sometimes get when I sleep on my side. The best part? NO sleep lines on my face or chest when I woke up!!!
The only negative is that this is a standard size pillow, and I’m accustomed to a king sized pillow. However, since I was actually comfortable and didn’t toss and turn, the size was a non-issue. Also, unlike other similar pillows, the Save and Soft Gel Pillow comes with a 100% bamboo protective cover that’s infused with aloe vera, so no static to make your hair frizzy.
Overall, I was very pleased with the Save and Soft Gel Pillow. I woke up well-rested, ache-free, and without lines or wrinkles! Whether you’re looking for preventing the signs of aging, or a more comfortable night’s sleep, you should head over to Amazon.com and check out the Save and Soft Gel Pillow!
