Someone on one of the skincare subs recommended this travel pillow as a cheap back-sleeping pillow and it’s honestly one of the best purchases I’ve ever made: HAOBAIMEI Travel Neck Pillow, Memory Foam Travel Pillow for Airplanes, Car, Camping, Office, School, Head Neck Pillow, Back Pillow, Travel Accessories for Women and Men(Grey) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DWCHMM3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_8D67APZ7T3RZJKKQP9GF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I cover it with a satin pillowcase that I can swap out and wash. This travel pillow is, for me, the HG of back sleeping.
As part of the initial transition I used a weighted blanket and heating pad placed on my tummy, to simulate the warmth and pressure of sleeping on my stomach or in the fetal position. The weighted blanket I got was like $70 on Amazon but you can get them cheaper. I only needed those for like a week or two anyway.
The other critical thing has been an eye covering — a satin-lined hat pulled down over my eyes, the end of the satin pillowcase on my travel pillow, or a satin eye mask. Just be careful to only place whatever it is gently over your eyes and nothing tight or strapped to your face, bc it can mess up your eyes, which I learned the hard way, but fortunately before I’d done any permanent damage.
For my neck, chest and shoulders, I used to apply snail mucin power essence on wet skin and then tret, or snail mucin then triple oat serum and then tret. Lately I’ve been applying Stratia Rewind to wet skin, then Neutrogena Hydro Boost HA, then tret, then snail mucin, then oat gel moisturizer, and I’ve noticed it doesn’t feel as thin as it did before. So I’ll probably stick with this routine unless something changes. My 0.025% gel is almost gone and then I’ll switch to the 0.025% cream I have on deck, and my routine might have to change then.
I’m 37 and have been a stomach sleeper my whole life, could not sleep on my back for anything. I was searching these skincare subs for back sleeping pillows and someone recommended this one: HAOBAIMEI Travel Neck Pillow, Memory Foam Travel Pillow for Airplanes, Car, Camping, Office, School, Head Neck Pillow, Back Pillow, Travel Accessories for Women and Men(Grey) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DWCHMM3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_6RS9CYQYA4N6RVW6X3B5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Genuinely one of the greatest purchases I have ever made. I cover it in a satin pillowcase and wear a silk sleep mask. At first I used a weighted blanket and sometimes a heating pad on my tummy to simulate stomach sleeping. Now I’m fine with just the pillow and eye mask. The other night I actually tried sleeping on my stomach and couldn’t do it, it was giving me a headache, had to switch to my back which is INSANE after being a stomach sleeper for almost 4 decades!
Idk if it’s making a difference in my skin but I can easily map the deepest wrinkles on my face neck and chest to smushing my face into a pillow and contorting my body for 8 hours straight every night. So I feel pretty confident this will at least slow those things down.
this pillow from Amazon You tuck the smaller pillow legs under your neck and it cradles your head perfectly. If you roll on your side, the pillow legs stabilize your head under your chin and at at your forehead, without touching your cheeks or eye area. I bought two of these for a flight and realized by pure chance that they are MAGIC back sleeping pillows. They’re $25 on amazon but I have an extra I couldn’t return and I’ll send it to you for $15. I don’t really need to sell it but I’m just excited to share my sleeping pillow secret!
Someone on this sub recommended this pillow as a beauty pillow, I bought it back in April and it genuinely changed my life: HAOBAIMEI Travel Neck Pillow, Memory Foam Travel Pillow for Airplanes, Car, Camping, Office, School, Head Neck Pillow, Back Pillow, Travel Accessories for Women and Men(Grey) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DWCHMM3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_21VJAT4FBJX9JF1QPWQT?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I wrap it in one of these satin pillowcases: Bedsure Satin Pillowcase for Hair and Skin Queen – Navy Silk Pillowcase 2 Pack 20×30 inches – Satin Pillow Cases Set of 2 with Envelope Closure https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0756WMRNV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_HXER5JYYFJQFEV72QTMN?psc=1
You can use the end of the pillowcase as an eye mask too.
I wake up with perfectly smooth hair and no smush lines on my face. I’m not creating any new neck or chest wrinkles because I’m sleeping on my back. It’s been great for my posture as well. Cannot recommend enough!!!
