Car Pillows and their use.

Often drive? Often experience a stiff neck? Maybe something is wrong with the way you drive. maybe your driving position is less ergonomic, so that it creates tension in the veins which causes the neck to stiffen. The position of someone driving a car is really nothing that is right for each person. There are those who like to stand up, Some like to lean back, and some are moving forward. Delicious and not depending on each and of course also depends on the type of car.

Well, we will just try to help, who knows with these tips, you will be more concentrated and more comfortable in holding the steering wheel control. Try to install Car Pillows or Car Headrest Pillow. By providing additional accessories, this can be a little relax the muscles behind your body. Especially when your driving position is leaning backwards. If you are in an upright driving position, of course you don't need to add to this car pillow accessories.

In all factory-produced cars, especially the new output, almost all of the headrests are somewhat protruding forward and leave a little room behind the nape of the neck. Sometimes for people who have a height of more than 175 cm, it is rather difficult if you want to lie down. By attaching a car cushion, the blank space will fill and make the cross section more comfortable.

Besides that, the car cushion can also be used as a head pillow when there is an emergency where we do not bring a pillow to sleep somewhere. This car cushion seems to be a very useful backup. However, not everyone likes the installation of additional accessories behind this neck. Some feel that adding a pillow at the back of the neck will make you unable to relax. different people are certainly different experiences and habits. Of course, a sand truck driver feels no need to put a hello kitty car pillow on his car. While the college student certainly could have liked to put up a car pillow with cute cat pictures as a symbol of the caress of the owner of the car.

Car cushions are also sometimes installed not for convenience, but to please the baby with the cartoon characters he likes. Some even put up the pillow just to show their love for a particular football club or their love for certain organizations. In our opinion, this is legitimate, as long as the contents of the pillow are still soft silicone fiber, not karst or granite.

Well, which group do you belong to? Do you prefer to put a car cushion as an ornament or is it really a booster for your neck while driving? Or perhaps you never have the pillow? Some people prefer to use public or online modes of transportation, you don't need to buy the pillow and then install it, such as you buy a car pillow and then install it to Ride Sharing Cabs. It's just weird.

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.

How To Eliminate Wrinkles On Face Caused By Pillow
Wrinkles On Face Caused By Pillow
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.

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.

Ancient Egyptian cushion form is stone or wooden headrests. The use of a cushion in Egypt at that time was mostly only to be placed under the head of a corpse, because the human head was regarded as the essence of life and sacred. The ancient Egyptians used wooden or stone pillows to wedge the heads of the dead. Then the pillow is also used by living humans as a means to restore the strength of the body, maintain blood circulation, and keep it from the distraction of evil creatures.

The History of Pillow

The Romans and Greeks from ancient Europe created the soft cushions. The material from the pillows used as a backrest to sleep, filled with reeds, feathers, and straw to make their sleeps softer and more comfortable. Nevertheless, still only upper-class people have pillows. People in ancient Europe started using pillows when going to church to kneel in prayer and to be placed in scripture. This is a tradition that still lives to this day. In addition, the Romans and Greeks used their pillows by placing the pillow under the heads of the dead as in ancient Egypt.

Chinese peoples use pillows made of various materials including bamboo, jade, porcelain, wood, and bronze. At that time, the use of porcelain cushion is the most popular. The use of porcelain cushions appeared first in the Sui Dynasty between 581 and 618. While mass production of porcelain cushions appeared in the Tang Dynasty between the years 618 and 907.

Until the medieval age in Europe, the pillow is still a marker of social status of society. Only upper middle class people (bourgeois) who use this sleeping supplement. However, this perception was undermined by King Henry VII of the United Kingdom. He forbade everyone to wear pillows except women who are pregnant. Men who continue to wear pillows are regarded as weak men. But the rule began to fade by itself in the 19th century. Pillow is a good tool as an addition to sleeping human sleep in general.

However, in reality there are differences in the use of pillow material in different parts of the world. In the Asian Continent, people use cotton / kapok as material for their pillows. In Europe people use wool, goose hair or straw bonds. Until finally in the 20th century humans have been able to create foam, fiber and silicon fiber latex as a substitute for materials derived from nature. Until now, soft cushions have been mass produced with various raw materials of foam, goose feather, silicone fiber and others. Currently, the use of cotton / kapok based pillow is lessened due to the lack of raw materials and side effects of less support for human health.
