Summer is just around the corner. That means hotter days and humid, warm nights. With the rising temperature, some people find it more difficult to have a good night’s sleep. Tossing and turning — as they’re trying to find the cold spot on the bed, keeps them up throughout the night. What’s more frustrating is slipping into hot sheets in a warm bedroom, and waking up sweaty.
As it turns out, it’s scientifically proven that it’s much harder to have comfortable sleep when you’re in a warmer environment. That’s why more people crank up the AC to make up for the heat.
However, this isn’t the only way to cool down. To help combat overheating during your sleep, it’s a good idea to go for breathable, lightweight, and cool sheets. Choose a bed sheet that is thermal-regulating and one that wicks away moisture with ease. Thermal regulating means that the fabric can absorb and disperse heat to keep you from having to push and pull covers all night. These fabrics work by wicking moisture away from skin through the fabric in order to evaporate more easily, thereby lowering body temperatures.
Bamboo Sheets are popular for a reason
Bamboo Sheets are naturally thermal-regulating so it does not retain moisture. Instead, it moves heat away while you sleep — keeping you at the ideal temperature all night. Compared to cotton, they are considered quick-drying, silky soft, and breathable. Bamboo sheets are also also lightweight, anti-microbial, and cool to touch so it feels easy on the skin even on hot nights.
That’s why Bamboo beddings are a great option for warm summer nights and can be good year-round for people who sleep hot.
Here are a few things that a Thermal-Regulating Sheet can help with:
1. It can help get rid of Night Sweats.
Overheating and night sweats are some of the most common issues causing restlessness in adults and a set of cooling bamboo sheets can make a big difference.
