The heat has arrived: tips for cooler nights

Summer is here and the nights are already warmer. While it can be relaxing to sleep uncovered, feeling too hot when sleeping can be uncomfortable and uncomfortable. Therefore, in this article we share some suggestions to enjoy cooler and more comfortable nights.

What was your dinner?

Certain dishes accelerate the metabolism and raise the body temperature. Very spicy and high-calorie foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol and sweets should be avoided in the hours before going to sleep. Substitute something fresher, like yogurt, watermelon, or milk.

Tip: mint tea, even when drunk hot, reduces body temperature. It can be an important ally so you don't feel hot when you sleep.

Cool mattress for summer nights

Does your mattress breathe?

The more breathable a mattress is, the less heat it will store. For this, it is important that its core allows air circulation. For example, the Koala mattress ensures cool nights because it has a core made up of different foams that facilitate effective ventilation. In addition, its upper layer of micro-perforated latex increases air circulation during rest.

Tip: If you have asthma or allergies, a foam mattress is a great choice.

Is your bedding 100% cotton?

Favor the use of 100% cotton sheets and pillowcases in light colors, as it is a very light and breathable fabric.

Tip: give preference to bedding with a high number of threads. The higher the thread count, the softer and more resistant the fabric, and the better quality the sheets and pillowcases are.
