Here's a closer look!

How does a cooling mattress topper help you sleep better?

Cooling mattress toppers absorb heat and regulate temperature to help you stay comfortable and relaxed. High temperatures or warm weather conditions can affect your sleep because humans sleep better in cold weather. If your sleeping surface stores heat without dispersing it, you can feel restlessness making it hard to fall asleep. 

Our body has a natural temperature of 98.6 degrees (37°C), and the ideal temperature for sleeping is 65 degrees. Therefore, it is pretty evident that since our bodies usually have a high temperature, bed cooling pads can help lower the temperature. A cooling mattress topper helps keep you cool while you sleep and relieve back and shoulder pain. In particular, a cooling bed pad can help you sleep cool and comfortably if you're a hot sleeper.

  • The pad relieves pressure and keeps your spine aligned.
  • By absorbing moisture, it can prevent you from sweating at night.
  • It protects your mattress from various bacteria such as mould and dust mites.
