As temperatures rise, it’s often difficult to get a comfortable night’s sleep, but luckily for you, we have put together 5 top tips to keep you cool this summer.
A cold shower takes on a whole new meaning come summertime. Rinsing off under cold water brings down the core body temperature so you can hit the bed feeling cool.
Freeze water in a hot water bottle, take it to bed with you and place it on ‘cooling points’ on your body: knees, ankles, wrists, neck, groin and elbows.
Stick sheets in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes before bed, ideally in a bag to keep the fridge odour away. This won’t keep you cool all night, but it will provide a brief respite from heat and humidity.
Apply a drop of peppermint on your wrists or inhale before bedtime for better sleep. Peppermint oil helps activate cold-sensitive receptors in the skin. It may also help to beat insomnia.
