To the list of afflictions that includes ring around the collar and the frizzy blues, you can now add: pillow face.
If you’re a pillow face sufferer, you have a couple of treatment options. You can wait for it to go away (results may vary, depending on your age). Or you can get yourself a Save My Face Pillow, “the original anti-wrinkle pillowette.” (We hope it works better than towelettes, vinaigrettes and all those other “-ettes,” which we find uniformly unsatisfying.)
Here’s the idea. If you’re one of the 80 percent of people in the world who sleep cheek-down, the Save My Face Pillow will hold the side of your face elevated over the bed. Essentially you’re sleeping on your ear.
The pillow was invented by Linda May-Randall, who is a deep tissue therapist (and former Vegas showgirl). It comes in various sizes, from La Petite Pilowette for $42 to Le Grande Pillowette Elite 400, which goes for $80.
That’s a bit steep for us. We’ll wait till they come out with a pillow that also cures snoring and drooling. Then we’ll be first in line to buy one (for our girlfriends).
