How To Eliminate Wrinkles On Face Caused By Pillow


When you wake up try to look in the mirror, sometimes there are traces of fabric texture or pillow that is left on your face. This is called a wrinkles on face. It would be very disturbing to your appearance right? wrinkles that usually appear because our face is attached to the surface of the pillow or mattress is not flat, or folded fabric. Because the process is long enough, it causes scars on the facial skin. Prone sleeping position will more often raise the problem than the supine sleeping position.

When people sleep with a position attached to the surface of the pillow or mattress, then the air circulation is also reduced considerably. The skin cells that are supposed to operate normally become depressed by the folded fabric causing skin cell swelling. Skin cells contain fluid that acts as a cushion to make skin look full. As you burrow your face into the pillow for a long time, the fluid in the skin cells is absorbed by the body. So, once you wake up, skin cells gradually swell as most liquids. This is what causes wrinkles or creases on the face, says Lydia Evan, Dermatologist in Chappaqua, New York. Sleeping habits with faces face down or closed from the air circulation will more quickly encourage skin rupture and trigger the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. Meanwhile, if you sleep in a sloping position to the right or to the left will make your face closed or depressed partial pillow.
Here are 4 ways to remove :

1. Wash With Water.
Wash your face with warm water or water with normal temperature, continue with massaging (upwards) slowly on the face with a moisturizer. Warm water speeds up the flow of blood to the folded areas of the skin. While the moisturizing function is to restore the skin moisture to normal. While massaging it slowly helps eliminate wrinkles on the skin manually and naturally.

2. Good Sleeping Position.
Do not get used to sleeping on your side, sideways, or on your stomach. Because sleeping in such a position is potentially face closed or stick / tap the surface of the pillow or mattress. Instead, sleep on your back to keep skin healthy, get a good air circulation and get the oxygen inhalation to the maximum.

3. Pick a Smooth and soft Pillowcases.
Another way to avoid facial wrinkles while sleeping is to use satin or silk pillowcases instead of cotton. Pillowcases with subtle material avoid faces wrinkled, although expensive you should use them because it will affect your appearance. The shape and size of the pillowcases also have an effect. The size of a pillowcase that is too large can cause folds on the fabric. The tassel or embroidered shape of the pillowcase can also cause wrinkles problems.

4. Picking the Right Pillow.
Tenderness or cushion density also affects the occurrence of pillow lines on your face. Pillow hard material has the potential to make the face more easily wrinkled. That is because, when there are folds of pillowcases, the lines exposed to the skin will be deeper. Pillows with material of goose or silicone hair are less likely to cause facial creases than solid textured materials such as foam.

How to Clean your Pillows from Dust Mites
Clean your Pillows from Dust Mites

 Have you ever been disturbed while sleeping? Maybe you feel the itching on the skin of the body? or Do you start coughing after waking up? or even you have trouble breathing when you wake up? Maybe it is caused by a small animal called mites, or often called lice. These mites often sit on cushions and mattresses that you use during sleep. Mites breed easily on sleeping pillows and mattresses. This can trigger allergies with unpleasant symptoms. Even if you are not really allergic to mites, you should periodically take these steps to eliminate them for your hygiene and health.

Clean your Pillows from Dust Mites

What are dust mites / mites? 
Mites are an eight-legged creature that is almost impossible to see with the naked eye, should be with a microscope. Dust mites feed on fragments of human skin that are detached, and it is therefore common that mites live wherever humans live. Dust mites will live in the cleanest house, so it is very difficult to remove. 

Clean your Pillows from Dust Mites

Specifically, dust mites can often be found in places that are related to your sleeping activities, as they are usually living mites where there are many dead skin fragments. Dust mites also thrive in places with high humidity. Pillows and Mattresses are places that meet this requirement because peeling skin and sweat is an ideal source of food and moisture for mites. Dust mites cause problems because they secrete enzymes. This enzyme can trigger allergic reactions in the human body. It can cause symptoms such as sneezing, wheezing, coughing, or watery eyes. Dust mites do not cause problems for those who are not allergic to them, because dust mites do not bite or hide in the skin. 

Well this time we will tell you how to remove the mite from the pillow or mattress that you use to sleep every day, so you avoid the risk of itching, yeast infection, allergies, cough and asthma. We will not discuss the method of cleaning the mites on the mattress, we will only discuss how to clean the pillow from the mite. Though more or less the same way. Here are a few different methods of removing dust mites from your pillows:  

How to Clean your Pillows from Dust Mites


Read the Instruction on Pillows Tag 
Before you read the information below, it should be noted that you should always follow the Maintenance guidelines in the tag. If your pillow has no tags, the information below will be useful to ensure that you do not damage it during the cleaning process. However we recommend that you comply with the cleaning instructions in the attached tag. What's in it? Usually there are codes like
dry or wet clean or temperature information. 

You have to find out what type of pillow you want to wash. What materials are in it? Here are the most common types of pillows, with a quick overview of how to get started. 
Kapok Pillow, This pillow can not be washed, can only be dried under the sun alone.
Foam Pillow, Foam pillows should not be put into a washing machine or overheated in excessive amounts. 
Goose Down / Down Feather & Silicon Fiber Pillows. Generally, both types of pillows can be washed with your washing machine or hand-cleaned manually. Clean until completely dry. if it should be dried, do not get too hot because it will damage the density of the pillow.
Latex, This kind of pillow can be washed with machine.

Remove the Pillowcase
If there is a cover, you should remove it and wash it separately. The majority of pillowcases can go into the washing machine, but again, look for care instructions on the tags. If you use a special hypoallergenic cover pillow, then a special way may be required.

Using Vacuum Cleaner
Use a Vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt that might be trapped inside the pillow. It will not clean up completely, but it will help remove any debris left behind. It will be helpful to wash the pillow itself.

Do Not Overheating
Since this is a foam or down or silicon pillow, You should not expose it to excessive heat. Specifically, this means you should not put it in the dryer or leave it under the sun too long. You can put it in the dryer on no heat cycles for about 20 minutes to help free the dust, dirt and debris.

Spot Cleaning
If there are visible stains, you can use a cloth dipped in soft soap and water to help clean it. There are a number of other natural cleaning solutions that you should consider to use as well. Be sure to rinse the entire area with a damp cloth and let it dry thoroughly before using it again.

Washing by Hand
Some pillows have instructions for washing by hand. If you choose to do this, be careful as the pillow becomes wet, heavy and can be easily damaged or torn. Make sure you leave it completely dry before you use it again. A fan may be able to help speed this process.

Use a Pillowcase that Changes Regularly.
We recommend wearing a pillowcase to protect the pillow from dust mites. There are many benefits of using a pillowcase, one of which is to keep the pillow clean. Pillowcases will help reduce how often you have to clean the pillow, and it will also prolong life and help protect you from harmful allergies. If you have a hypoallergenic pillow cover, that would be better.

How often to wash the pillow regularly. 

Now that you know more about how often to wash the pillows regularly, you may wonder how you should do it. It depends on how often the pillow is used. If you sleep with the pillow every night, then you should often wash it. But if it is a decorative pillow located on top of the furniture, which is rarely used, then you can clean it less often.

There is no definite answer as to how often you should clean it up. Opinions will vary depending on who you listen to. Some say half a year, while others say it should be once a month. We choose to suggest just follow your instincts. If you feel your pillows need to be cleaned, then wash them immediately. But remember, if you use a pillowcase, you should wash it more often than the pillow 
itself.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
Pillow Advisor

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as cot death or crib death, is the sudden unexplained death of a child less than one year of age. Diagnosis requires that the death remains unexplained even after a thorough autopsy and detailed death scene investigation. SIDS usually occurs during sleep. Typically death occurs between the hours of 00:00 and 09:00. There is usually no evidence of struggle and no noise produced.

The exact cause of SIDS is unknown. The requirement of a combination of factors including a specific underlying susceptibility, a specific time in development, and an environmental stressor has been proposed. These environmental stressors may include sleeping on the stomach or side, overheating, and exposure to tobacco smoke. Accidental suffocation from bed sharing (also known as co-sleeping) or soft objects may also play a role. Another risk factor is being born before 39 weeks of gestation. SIDS makes up about 80% of Sudden and Unexpected Infant Deaths (SUIDs). Other causes include infections, genetic disorders, and heart problems. 

Placing an infant to sleep while lying on the stomach or the side increases the risk. This increased risk is greatest at two to three months of age. Elevated or reduced room temperature also increases the risk, as does excessive bedding, clothing, soft sleep surfaces, and stuffed animals. Bumper pads may increase the risk of SIDS due to the risk of suffocation. They are not recommended for children under one years of age as this risk of suffocation greatly outweighs the risk of head bumping or limbs getting stuck in the bars of the crib.

Sharing a bed with parents or siblings increases the risk for SIDS. This risk is greatest in the first three months of life, when the mattress is soft, when one or more persons share the infant's bed, especially when the bed partners are using drugs or alcohol or are smoking. The risk remains, however, even in parents who do not smoke or use drugs. The American Academy of Pediatrics thus recommends "room-sharing without bed-sharing", stating that such an arrangement can decrease the risk of SIDS by up to 50%. Furthermore, the Academy recommended against devices marketed to make bed-sharing "safe", such as in-bed co-sleepers. 

The Baby really does require our surveillance but can we do it at all times ? Here's thing you should care about. 

Sleep Positioning and Bedding Accessories Usage.


Sleeping on the back has been found to reduce the risk of SIDS. Sleeping on the back does not appear to increase the risk of choking even in those with gastroesophageal reflux disease. While babies in this position, they may sleep more comfortable and lightly. Sharing the same room as one's parents but in a different bed may decrease the risk by half. It's good if we allow the baby to sleep on our side but in separate bed, so that when breastfeeding is easier and we quickly wake up if feel the moments is come.
Product safety experts advise against using overly soft mattresses, sleep positioners, bumper pads (crib bumpers), stuffed animals, or fluffy bedding in the crib and recommend instead dressing the child warmly and keeping the crib "naked". Blankets or other clothing should not be placed over a baby's head. The FDA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning about their use because they are hazardous.

The recommendation of Dr. Rachel Moon at the National Medical Children's Center in Washington DC United States. And if you wants your baby to be more safer, do not let the baby sleep in the crib at night because we do not know what will happens if he sleeps alone at an early age.

Child Sleeping

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Prevention 

The most effective method of reducing the risk of SIDS is putting a child less than one year old on their back to sleep. Other measures include a firm mattress separate from but close to caregivers, no loose bedding, a relatively cool sleeping environment, using a pacifier, and avoiding exposure to tobacco smoke. 

Breastfeeding
If the infant is exposed to the first Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) countermeasure is to give her breast milk for breathing to return to normal. Some think breast milk may protect babies from infections that raise their SIDS risk. Do not drink alcohol if you breastfeed, because that raises your baby’s risk of SIDS. In addition, the simple touch is helpful. Skin-to-skin contact is important for your baby’s development

Immunization
Immunization may also be preventive. We can reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) with immunization after the SIDS process is passed. Putting your baby to sleep with a pacifier may also help prevent SIDS. Evidence shows babies who’ve been immunized in accordance with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC have a 50% reduced risk of SIDS compared with babies who aren’t fully immunized.

Using a Pillows on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Prevention

For prevention to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), We should lay the infants in a supine position with No Pillow At All, Although the pillow can prevent the infants to move sideways to the stomach position quickly and prevent choking while slept. Using pillow may causing they become trapped under it or wedged against it, unable to breathe. To reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), babies should sleep flat on their back in a clean cot with no blankets, pillows or toys. When they are growing older than one years old, you may start to introduce them to a pillow.
