Whether it's the middle of summer or the dead of winter, no one wants to be hot when they sleep. Being a comfortable temperature at night is essential for getting a good night's sleep, and sometimes kicking off your blankets just isn't enough.
One of the best things you can do to improve your temperature while you sleep is to invest in products with natural fibers, which can be naturally moisture-wicking and cooler to the touch than synthetic fibers Beyond that, there are also some products that are designed with technology that helps regulate your body temperature and keep you cooler at night.
From your head to your toes, these 8 cooling products will help you beat the heat and stay comfortable this summer and beyond.
Casper Foam Pillow with Snow Technology
With a phrase like "Snow Technology" in the name, you know this pillow has to keep you cool. This foam pillow from Casper does just that, with a perforated foam inside that pushes heat away from your head and face. If you're already a fan of their regular foam pillow, you'll love this pillow, as it's made with similar materials and a similar construction.
Brooklyn Bedding Brooklyn Chill Memory Foam Mattress
If you have a mattress that traps heat, it doesn't matter how many sheet sets or pillows you buy that claim to be cooling—you'll never get quite cool enough. But Brooklyn Bedding's Brooklyn Chill mattress really does stay cool and doesn't trap your body heat. It comes in a range of sizes and thicknesses, so you can choose whether you prefer a softer or firmer mattress.
Slumbercloud Core Mattress Pad
Don't want to shell out for a new mattress? Try a mattress pad instead. This one by Slumbercloud has "NASA-approved" cooling technology that absorbs heat when you're hot and releases it back to you when you're cold. It also adds an extra layer of plushness to your bed, and who doesn't want that?
Buffy Breeze Comforter
Buffy is known for their Cloud comforter, which is great for year-round use. But if you prefer to have something lighter in the summer, the Breeze is just what you need. It's made of 100% eucalyptus fibers, with a TENCEL cover that absorbs moisture. It's a great choice if you need something a little more substantial than a top sheet to help you feel cozy and protected at night, even when it's hot.
Sijo AiryWeight Eucalyptus Sheet Set
As we mentioned, natural fibers are known for their cooling properties, so a eucalyptus sheet set is a great choice if you're a hot sleeper. This set from Sijo comes in 7 pretty, neutral color options, so you can choose the color that best fits your bedroom's aesthetic. They're also surprisingly affordable.
Baloo Weighted Blanket
Just because it's summer, doesn't mean we don't want the relaxing, soothing effect of a weighted blanket. But with all of that extra weight and heaviness, they're not exactly ideal for hot weather. Baloo's weighted blanket throw, on the other hand, is made with cooling in mind. It's free of synthetic materials and made with a 100% cotton exterior, making it much cooler than polyester or other synthetic weighted blankets.
Asutra Silk Eye Pillow
Sleep masks aren't just great for sheltering your eyes from unwanted light. This eye mask also helps keep you cool. It's made of natural silk, so it won't heat up, and it comes with a gel mask insert that you can freeze and put in the eye mask for even more cooling relief. When you're not hot, or want some extra relaxation, use the lavender and flax seed insert instead, which also has a weighted effect.
Blueair Blue Pure Purifying Fan, 3 Speeds with Washable Pre-Filter
There's no better way to feel cooler while you sleep than to feel cool air against your skin. This fan is the perfect size for a bedside table, is super portable, and even has an air purifying feature. And if you love fans but hate the noise, you'll appreciate the quieter noise levels (from "quieter than a whisper" to "less noise than a normal conversation") that this fan emits.
