How to Avoid the Summer Sleep Sweats
4 Jun 2021 2 Min Read by Lucid

Let’s face it, summer is hot—but your sleep doesn’t have to be. If you’re tired of waking up dripping wet, drowning in your own sweaty sheets, or discarding all your covers every night, then we have you covered with five sweatproof ways to ditch your summer sleep sweats.

Start the AC  

The most common cooling solution starts with running the AC. But this doesn’t mean you have to run it 24-hours a day. Keep your AC turned on for only the beginning of the night and set it to shut off when it reaches your ideal temperature. It’ll save you money and time.

Pro tip: If you don’t have a working AC, cool down with a fan. Set your fan up behind a container of ice for an easy cooling hack.

Stay Cool with a Mattress Topper

Add an extra layer of cool comfort to your mattress with the Lucid 2-Inch 5-Zone Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper. This topper is infused with a cooling gel designed to regulate your body temperature for a more comfortable sleep.

Shut Your Shades

Open blinds, drapes, and curtains may let in the sun, but they’re also great at bringing the heat into your home. During the day, keep your shades shut to prevent your sleep space from overheating. This will make your room feel cooler at night, so you can sleep better all night long.

Select Cooling Sheets  

Sleep easy surrounded by light and airy sheets. Natural fibers like cotton and linen are extremely breathable and are packed with moisture-wicking properties perfect for a cool and comfortable sleep climate.

Pro tip: Look for a pair of lightweight pajamas to add to your bedtime routine for an all-around cooling experience.

Sleep Downstairs

Your sleep may benefit from sweat-free nights by moving your bedroom downstairs on hot summer evenings. Since hot air rises, the lowest level of your home tends to be naturally cooler than the rest of your house. Move into the downstairs guest bedroom or blow up an air mattress to help stop night sweats.  

Now you’re ready for sweat-free nights ahead.
