The 10 Best Cooling Sleep Products for Hot, Sweaty Sleepers
You put your right leg in, you put your right leg out…OK, in all seriousness, the “Hokey Pokey” sounds a lot like our nightly dance to keep cool while sleeping under the covers. We know we’re not alone, and we’re here to say it doesn’t have to be like this forever. Just invest in some cooling sleep products—from pillows to blankets to mattresses—that help keep your body temperature down while you snooze. Here are ten we love.
1. Bear Pro Mattress
Made with a layer of copper-infused foam on top of gel memory foam, this mattress is designed to draw heat away from your body so you don’t wake up drenched.
2. Sealy 1.5“ SealyChill Gel Memory Foam Topper – Queen
Don’t want to buy a new mattress? Invest in a gel memory foam topper that will not only make your bed feel plusher but also keep you from overheating.
3. Buffy Breeze Comforter
Each one of these lightweight comforters is made from eucalyptus that’s harvested from regenerative forests and sewn together with 100 percent recycled thread. But the sustainability doesn’t stop there: The entire production process is waste-free. And according to more than 3,000 positive reviews, it won’t leave you drenched in sweat.
4. Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Air Purifier
It’s an air purifier, a fan and (in the winter) a space heater. Basically, there’s nothing it can’t do. But the cooling feature is one of the most high-tech on the market, because it doesn’t use any blades (aka it’s nearly silent).
5. Brooklyn Bedding LUXURY COOLING PILLOW
There truly is nothing more refreshing than flipping your pillow and resting your head on the cold side. But what if you didn’t have to wake from your slumber to have that blissfully chill feeling all night long? This pillow uses pin-core ventilation for increased airflow, and its surface is treated with a cooling gel that draws heat away from your head and neck. Plus, it’s antimicrobial and resistant to allergens, mold and dust.
6. Therapedic 12 lb. Small Weighted Cooling Blanket
Yes, you can still reap all the anti-anxiety benefits of a weighted blanket without waking up in a puddle of sweat. This cooling version is made from bamboo, which is naturally breathable and moisture-wicking, trapping in less heat than cotton.
7. Parachute Linen Sheet Set
There’s a reason why your favorite beach pants are linen—it’s an extremely light and airy fabric. Cover your bed in the material and it will not only look chicer, but also keep you snoozing through the night.
8. Brooklinen Linen Quilt
Don’t let the word quilt fool you—this blanket is extremely lightweight. Plus, it’s stonewashed for ultimate softness and only gets better with every wash.
9. Therapedic Polar Nights 10x Cooling Ice Cube Queen Mattress Topper
This mattress topper is unlike any we’ve tried. It uses something called Reactex Technology to actually pull in heat from the body and release cool energy. You’ll sleep ten times more comfortably (with both legs inside the covers).
10. Chiliblanket Hydro-Cooled Weighted Blanket
If you’re serious about keeping your body temp down, you need to try Chiliblanket, aka the first and only blanket that pumps cool water through interior channels. Think of it like the opposite of a heated blanket that stays cool to the touch all night long. Magic.
