Beauty Pillow

Patent No. 2,533,526 was granted to Yvonne Bersia Snyder of Forest Hills, NY for a "Beauty Pillow":

This invention relates to an article to be worn to prevent wrinkles and damaging of the skin tissues such as on the face. More particularly it deals with a pad or pillow which may be adjustably held against the side of the head to keep the skin from wrinkong or folding when the face is resting against a support, such as a pillow.
During sleep the tissues of the face are usually crushed or folded in the same position for hours at a time. For example, the flesh of the cheeks or face when flattened against the pillow during the sleeping hours pushes the skin forwards and settles in the hollows of the eyes where it produces wrinkles.
It is an object of this invention to prevent wrinkles or damaging of the skin tissues during rest.

Looks like it could also double as headgear for full-contact sports.

This could be super helpful during long travels when you want to block the ambient noise and cushion your ears against the cold window of the car, or train, or plane. It also signals that you do not want to be bothered by that annoying neighbor and his/her marital/medical problems.

It looks very much like the headgear I used during high school wrestling.

If Evander Holyfield had worn it when he fought Mike Tyson, he would still be a beauty.
