Most of us don’t give a thought to how our bedding affects our skin unless we have some kind of allergy. However, did you know that some types of bedding are better for your skin than others? We take a look at the skin benefits of bamboo bedding and how changing your bed linen can lead to healthier skin and a better night’s sleep.
Soothes Sensitive Skin
If you suffer from sensitive skin, have eczema or you’ve got a bad case of sunburn, you may find that your bedding can cause extra irritation. The smooth, extremely silky texture of bamboo sheets can help to ease irritation and help you to get a better night’s sleep. They are also the perfect choice for babies and their delicate skin.
Bamboo is known for its hypoallergenic properties, but did you know that it’s also anti-bacterial? This means that it can help to reduce the bacteria that collects on your skin and protect against breakouts. For this reason, it’s a great choice for anyone with acne although you should always remember to change your bamboo pillowcase daily if possible.
No More Night Sweats
Bamboo sheets are approximately 3-4 times more absorbent than those made from cotton. As you sweat, the fabric will wick away moisture from your body and hold onto the moisture until it can evaporate into the air. If you tend to be a ‘hot’ sleeper, you’ll find that your nights become less disturbed and you’ll wake up feeling drier and fresher – plus your skin will feel less dehydrated as it’s not losing as much moisture.
Regulates Your Body Temperature
With its unique ability to regulate body temperature, bamboo will help to keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. By keeping your body at its optimum temperature, you’ll enjoy a better sleep without waking due to being too hot or too cold. Sheets made from bamboo are also a great option if you have to share a bed with a ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ sleeper – you’ll both get the personalised temperature regulation you need for a good night’s sleep.
Luxurious to Touch
Can there be anything nicer than getting into a freshly made bed? Yes – if the sheets are made of bamboo. They have such a silky, luxurious feel that they will give your skin the ultimate sleeping experience. Many hotels are now equipping their bedrooms with bamboo bedding as it is extremely soft, hardwearing and remains looking good wash after wash.
