While most of us love the sunny weather, a hot spell can wreck sleep patterns with many Brits struggling to keep cool at night when the temperature rises.
But there are a number of ways to ensure a good night’s rest:
Create a draught
Get the air flowing around your bedroom, by opening doors and windows to catch the breeze where you can.
Taking a cool shower, or just running your wrists under the cold tap, can help you to chill and get some shuteye… you can even try putting a cold flannel in the fridge then laying it over your eyes for an extra-cool sensation.
Stay in the dark
It’s a good idea to keep blinds or curtains closed in the daytime to stop the room getting too hot.
Choose bamboo bedding
With its unique temperature-regulating properties, organic bamboo is the perfect choice for your bedding as its fine fibres are breathable and cool in the summer yet keep you cosy in the winter.
Panda London’s memory foam bamboo pillow is made up of three layers of visco memory foam which use the latest memory foam gel to mould around your neck and shoulders to relieve pressure points for the ultimate comfort in bed; the supportive memory foam pillow has been designed to ensure the correct sleeping position to improve your sleep.
Plus, because it comes with a removable bamboo pillow cover, it feels soft as a feather while wicking away moisture and encouraging airflow to keep you naturally cooler at night.
The Panda London memory foam bamboo pillow has won a number of awards for its support and comfort: it was named Best Eco-Friendly Pillow in the 2021 Best UK Mattress awards and Best Pillow Overall in the 2020 Mattress Guide.
It offers firm, soft comfort all night long and is incredibly durable so you won’t have to keep changing your pillow: Panda London even offers a 10-year guarantee so you sleep soundly in the knowledge that your pillow will stay free from faults and supportive for a decade.
Why bamboo is best
With its strong, silky fibres, bamboo is naturally softer and fluffier than the finest Egyptian cotton. Seriously soft and naturally hypoallergenic, it's ideal for allergy and sensitive skin sufferers... Plus it can be washed at low temperatures and dry rapidly without the need for fabric softeners or ironing, making bamboo bedding a low-energy option too.
Panda London, which offers a range of highly rated bamboo homeware products, is on a mission to be as eco-friendly and provide the highest possible standard of products.
Bamboo is the world’s fastest-growing plant – growing up to three feet a day – but only needs one-third as much water as cotton, plus it releases 30 per cent more oxygen than hardwood trees.
Not only is all its bamboo sourced from approved forests, but Panda London is working as hard as it can to reduce the environmental impact at every stage of its products’ lifecycles, from the forest to your front door.
