Do cool pillows really work?
Cool pillows work just like any other pillow, but in a cool way. The cool pillow works not only as a functional pillow but also serves well as a decoration. If cooling pillow is what you mean, then it works in a way that can help you regulate the heat so you can have a better sleep quality.
Are cooling pillows bad for you?
Cooling pillow works with gel material that can whisk away heat. Some people say that the material used in a cooling pillow can be toxic. But as long as the pillow is made out of natural material such as cotton, wool, and linen that can naturally cool when touching the skin, that should not be a problem.
How do I pick the right pillow?
If you want to use it as a decorative item, you can prioritize the design, but if comfort is what you need, the material is the most important thing to consider. The best pillow material to choose is the one made out of organic and natural material such as cotton, wool, or bamboo.
