Do you toss and turn at night, trying to stay cool? Are you in desperate need of a few tricks to survive hot summer nights? When one leg off the covers just isn’t enough, you’ll want a refreshing top sheet ASAP.
Creating a restful and minimalist environment is key to a better sleep and ultimately to stop waking up sweaty. Believe us: the simple task of switching out your sheets can help improve your rest by keeping you cool and dry throughout the night (and don’t misjudge the importance of pillowcases!).
Some sheets are made of inferior materials that make you feel even warmer. One of our tips, thus, is to avoid synthetic fabrics and try choosing natural fibres like cotton, which dries quickly.
Regarding the hue, the colour of your sheets can also play a role in staying cool, with lighter colours reflecting heat while darker ones absorbing it. With that in mind, light-coloured bed linen is more breathable and excellent for promoting ventilation and airflow in the bedroom.
Are you still wondering which sheets to choose? Then, don’t miss our favourite temperature-regulating top sheets, reviewed by our editorial team. This selection should be keeping you as cool as a cucumber while you snooze.
