3 Key Benefits You Should Know About Sleeping On Your Back

Cooling Mattress, Latex Mattresses

When it comes to seeking much-needed rest after a long workday, the way you fall into bed may not be the first thing that is on your mind. However, sleep positions are much more important than you might think. They can greatly affect your comfort level, as well as impact your well-being and overall health. As we spend most of our time each night in a certain position, it can influence how long and how well we sleep, as well as how our body feels when we wake up the next morning.

While there is no right or wrong sleep position, many medical experts have suggested back sleeping on mattresses which provide enough support and promote proper spinal alignment to prevent waking up with aches.

To help you better understand more about why sleeping on your back is ideal, here are 3 key benefits you should know, and how Four Star’s new DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ is the perfect mattress to help you sleep better.

1. Reduces inflammation and chronic pain

Back sleeping can aid in reducing compression and pressure on joints, which alleviates any chronic pain conditions that you might be facing. Sleeping on your back can also reduce joint pain that is caused by arthritis or any other inflammatory conditions. The reason being this position allows your weight to be dispersed uniformly, reducing the tension that is placed on the pressure points.

Sleeping on your back is also beneficial as sleepers who tend to sleep on the same side of their body may develop shoulder tendinitis or hip bursitis. It also reduces pressure on the shoulders and on the hip joints, making it easier to fall asleep.

With Four Star’s new DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™, this cooling mattress provides multi-dimensional support and reduces muscle exertion during sleep, allowing for a comfortable night’s rest with pressure relief. Its revolutionary Advanze Aire Flex™ Japanese technology and Silk-feel eco-fibers fabric also help in regulating the overall temperature of the mattress, reducing static stress, and improving airflow for a cooler sleeping experience.

2. Encourage spinal alignment

By sleeping on your back, you can reduce the risk of waking up in the morning with aches and stiffness. This is because your body is already centred over your spine. But it’s also important to have a good mattress that provides enough support to the shoulders and mid-section so you can maintain a healthy spinal alignment.

Sleepers who frequently suffer from lower discomfort may also put a pillow under their knees when they sleep, reducing the stress on their body when they sleep. DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ is fitted with 5 Zone Individual Pocketed Spring to conform and contour to your body for pressure relief. Plus, it is made from natural latex that helps support the natural curvature of the spine without excessive sinkage.

3. Improves skin quality

Sleeping on your back is a great way to prevent any wrinkles on your neck and face as it prevents the individual’s skin from being compressed by patterned sheets and pillows. These wrinkles, also known as “sleep wrinkles”, may form when sleeping on the side and stomach as the skin will be compressed, tightened, and stretched. Hence, many dermatologists recommend back sleeping to prevent sleep wrinkles.

Skin irritation and breakouts can also be significantly reduced when you sleep on your back as your skin will not be exposed to the germs or dirt that accumulate on the pillowcase. As a natural latex mattress, the DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ has a natural resistance to mould and dust mites, so you can protect yourself against any discomfort or allergies during sleep. It is also treated for anti-microbial organisms, anti-fungus, and anti-allergy to provide you with peace of mind when you sleep.


While back sleeping has clear benefits, it may not be suitable for all sleepers including those suffering from sleep apnea or acid reflux and even pregnant women who might feel an additional strain on their back.

With that said, having the right mattress can make a difference in anyone’s sleeping experience. Four Star’s new DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ mattress is made with revolutionary Japanese technology to provide good pressure distribution and improve blood circulation, leading to deeper sleep and better rest. It also features cooling gel infused memory foam to lend the ideal cushioning support and sleeping comfort with reduced motion transfer so you can feel well-rested the following day.
