The Best Blankets, Bed Sheets and Pillows for a Cool Sleep

Best Health Logo By Leah Rumack of Best Health | Slide 1 of 8: I’ve always been a hot sleeper—I've been shouting “Did somebody turn the aircon off?!” in a murderous rage since I was six years old. Now that I’ve become a Woman of a Certain Age And That Age is Definitely Not 23, my need for products that will keep me cooler at night has become a bit of an obsession. When you sleep, your body temperature goes down a couple of degrees, but the heat that you let off often gets trapped in your mattress, pillows and bedding, which then slowly cooks you as if you were a sweaty little sous vide snack. Here are some products that can help keep you cool. One caveat: sleep—or lack of it!—is the biggest factor that makes my life 1) suck or 2) not suck, so while some of these items are pricey, this is one area where I think spending a little more on quality goods is worth it.
