Pillow Talk (42)
What one beauty product would you recommend and why?
There are so many to choose from, especially because I can sometimes wear more make-up than Lady Ga Ga. I think if I can only choose one, I’d have to go with water…drink it, bath in it, spritz it on your face and shirt for that “I work in a naughty carwash look”.
I also found an awesome beauty product that I discovered this year and I swear by…the Envy Pillow…no more sleep lines! Plus I dig anything that makes you look good while you sleep…
Your favorite beauty treatment is?
I have to go with full body massages executed by a beautiful and eager buff boy working to put himself through med school.
For nearly 3 decades I've been getting up before most everybody else, to do a job I love: waking people up with a radio show. This life has many joys, but being at the top - and staying there - takes a lot of work and can mean a ton of stress. For me, that stress has made itself felt in my neck and shoulders for a very long time. That is, until I was introduced to the enVy pillow. (Hope this doesn't sound like a commercial - cause this really is true, and comes from the heart...and various other body parts!)
I had tried everything from cervical pillows of varying density to buckwheat pillows to no pillow at all and almost always awoke with the same - or worse - neck pain than I started with. Even biweekly trips to the chiropractor couldn't entirely free me of this chronic pain. The enVy pillow cradles my head, while offering firm, comforting support to my neck and shoulders. I can honestly say that I've never experienced a pillow like it, nor have I had one that I insisted travel with me. From now on, this one does. The creators of this pillow suggested it would mean fewer facial lines. Honestly, to me, there's no better beauty treatment than a good night's rest followed by a pain-free day. Thank you enVy.

WE NEVER GET TIRED OF GREAT STORIES
...please tell us yours!
"As a school teacher, I need to flex my neck often while marking papers as well as reading and writing on the board. I also experience much shoulder pain, tension and neck spasms at stressful times and humid or cold temperatures.
Having been diagnosed with herniated discs in my cervical and thoracic spine, as well as osteoarthritis, loss of lordosis and spondylosis in the neck, I became very ill two years ago, feeling very anxious and hopeless.
With exercise and daily physiotherapy treatment, I still was unsatisfied with my progress and considered surgery. I also tried four special kinds of pillows. Finally, my doctor suggested the envy pillow for a trial basis. I was very relectant because of the cost factor and thought it would be just another tool added to my disappointing pile. But within four nights I actually did not experience the stiffness and muscle spasms in my right side of the neck, that had plaged me every morning for about four hours daily, not to mention the tingling and other parasthesis. This chronic pain and spasms are almost gone. I never thought I'd feel normal again, but I am convinced that the pillow has played a significant role in my recovery. I can sleep on my back and side comfortably with it and not have to dread the daily morning ritual I had to go through to loosen up by noon.
I have never made a better investment in my life! I want to help other people experience the hopefulness and wellness that I do now."
