CHOOSE THE RIGHT PIL­LOW

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper -

Change your pil­low ev­ery year if it has a polyester fill­ing, and ev­ery two to three years if it’s a mem­ory foam type, rec­om­mends Ni­cholas. If your pil­low is lumpy or you keep wak­ing up with a sore neck, it’s also time to give it up. Con­sider your sleep­ing style when buy­ing your next pil­low: Side sleep­ers ben­e­fit from con­toured mem­ory foam pil­lows, which mould to the head and pro­vide bet­ter sup­port for the neck than polyester pil­lows, says Ni­cholas. They are 10cm on one side and 12cm on an­other – choose the side that’s most com­fort­able for you. Back sleep­ers should go for firm pil­lows or flat mem­ory foam pil­lows that pro­vide good head sup­port, pre­vent­ing your head from tilt­ing back­wards and caus­ing you to snore, a more com­mon prob­lem among back sleep­ers than side sleep­ers.
