Ever wondered why wrinkles develop? Does it come with age? Is it because of wrong facial products? How about if I tell you that it might because of the pillow you are using at night? It might also be because of your position when you sleep. That is why this article tackles the topic of pillows for side sleepers to prevent wrinkles.
Pillows are used to provide comfort when sleeping and to provide support between the head and the mattress. They should be firm enough to support the body parts but soft enough to still be comfortable.
What are the factors to consider when buying a pillow?
There are different filling materials used to create pillows – the feather filing which is the most commonly used because it is fluffy and very soft; memory foam which follows the contour of the head, jaw, and neck; buckwheat filling which is a natural, old style filling, and provides ultimate support and provides good air flow; microbead fillings which are an artificial alternative to buckwheat and also promote air flow; and latex which provides support to the neck and head but maintains its softness for ultimate comfort.
When it comes to pillows, it is important to identify the material so you know the quality of the pillow.
Buying a pillow is relative to the user. This means that there are different kinds of pillows that correspond to the sleeping position of the user. There are pillows for side sleepers, back sleepers, as well as stomach sleepers.
There are pillows that are firm to support the neck, jaw, and head; there are some that are too thin so that the neck will not arch that much when the user sleeps on the back; and there are pillows with earlobes to prevent pressure to the earlobes against the pillow.
Pillows are made by different manufacturers. Choose the pillow that is made by trusted, experienced manufacturers to ensure quality and comfort. Trusted brands guarantee that their pillows last long and provide comfort and support to the head, neck, and shoulders.
Sleeping on the side
Many people report that they are side sleepers. This means that they sleep on their side, either in a fetal or straight position. This has some advantages including reduction of acid reflux, and prevention of back pain, snoring, and sleep apnea. However, sleeping on the side can cause wrinkles because your face is pushed against the pillow.

Some of these side sleeping pillows have unconventional shapes that correspond to the needs of side sleepers. Side sleeping pillows are made of different filling materials but their firmness is mostly firm to provide enough support between the bed and the head.
