Sleeping on Your Back is the Anti-Wrinkle Position, but There’s a lot More to Saving Your Face Than Just Back Sleeping…

I do believe, since I launched the patented Back to Beauty™ Anti-Wrinkle Head Cradle back-sleeping beauty pillow in 2014, there has been an increase in awareness regarding the damage and distortion sleeping on your face causes. With the average human head weighing between 8-11 pounds, it makes sense that those not sleeping on their back are putting weight and pressure on delicate facial skin and reducing or even counteracting the benefits of moisturizing anti-wrinkle lotions, acne treatments, cosmetic injections, and facial surgeries. And although this revelation is still shocking and depressing to many, the information available is abundant. Here are a couple of quotes from just two of the many articles:

“When I look at patients, I can pretty much tell on which side they sleep,” says Dr. Amanda Wong Powell, clinical director of Courthouse Clinics. “More wrinkles on one side may mean they spend the night with that cheek squished into the pillow.’ – Daily Mail Article: Is the way you SLEEP giving you wrinkles? How your in-bed position could be aging you…and how to avoid waking up to fine lines 

“…a night of sleeping with your face planted in your pillow could lead to permanent wrinkling. Imagine if the unsightly lines you wake up with were etched permanently into your face. The American Academy of Dermatology warns against side and stomach sleeping, instead recommending you try and sleep on your back.” – Huffington Post 50 Article: Everything You Know About Wrinkles Is Wrong.  

But what still doesn’t seem to be common knowledge is that a) deciding to sleep on your back isn’t easy if you aren’t already a back sleeper, and b) just because you are sleeping on your back doesn’t mean that you aren’t still giving yourself wrinkles while you sleep. This is very frustrating for many people who quickly find out they can’t just buy a “back sleeping” pillow and acclimate to back sleeping easily. It also sort of drives me crazy when I see the many side and back-sleeping “beauty pillows” that boast being anti-wrinkle and anti-aging when their foam mold or flimsy design means you are still having pressure hit some part of your facial skin while you sleep.

That is why I went to great lengths to design the Back to Beauty Anti-Wrinkle Head Cradle beauty pillow to address the many discomforts of back sleeping while focusing on total sleep-wrinkle prevention. Back to Beauty isn’t just another back sleeping or anti-aging beauty pillow – it’s a truly unique and versatile form-fitting head cradle that prevents the head from falling side-to-side to keep delicate facial skin from being touched and damaged during sleep. This means you can say goodbye to the woes of morning bed head and pillow face. Your hair won’t get flattened during sleep and anti-wrinkle/acne-preventing lotions as well as facial injections and cosmetic surgeries will be left undisturbed, allowing them to do their job. Because of this, Back to Beauty is truly face-saving.

I also understand and respect that everyone is different. Back to Beauty’s patented design, with compact-cradle size, and fluffy hypoallergenic down-alternative fiber, was created specifically to enable use in various positions – allowing you to find your personal comfort zone. Back to Beauty is foam free, and won’t compress to get hard and hot like back-sleeping foam mold pillows can, and retains a full and luxurious feel that supports the neck and stabilizes the head to provide true beauty sleep.
