Sundresses and BBQs make summer seem magical. Outdoors are always insta-worthy, and it feels like you’re in a movie, but what about those sweaty nights when you barely get any sleep from the unbearable heat?
Don’t worry! We’re here with some genius hacks that’ll get you through the summer sleeping like a baby!
Body spray—with Water

Lightly spray your bed sheets and curtains with water from an old spray/perfume bottle. It’ll help carry a gentle breeze around the room as you sleep. Keeping a chilled bottle to spray on yourself is great, too, if you burn up in the middle of the night.
Cotton All the Way
Ditch the nylon bedsheets and go with cotton. Also, breathable cotton pajamas are better for you since they soak up the excess sweat.
Yes, go Frozen by freezing your sheets in a ziplock bag. A few minutes would do the trick!
Cold Water Bottle
Everyone uses the essential hot water bottle when winter strikes. Yet, forget that this technique could work in reverse too. So bring that chilled bottle to bed with you and place it on your neck, wrists, and ankles. You’ll cool down.
No Current – No Heat
Turning off all plug sockets in the room would cut off the current flow that’s generating heat into your room. Your electricity bill would drop too, so why not?
If your room is upstairs, chances are its hotter since hot air tends to rise. So sleeping downstairs or on the floor, would feel much colder. Curtain Call
Keep the curtains closed during the daytime, so heat doesn’t get trapped in. White cotton blinds are a great idea as they deflect heat rather than absorb it like darker hues.

If the mercury levels are unbearable, sleeping alone is the best option. Try to take turns with your partner, between the bed and sofa, to keep the peace.
Your skin is exposed to pollution and toxic UV rays when the temperature’s up. Regular cleansing using the right products will help ease irritation on your face and body.
Applying a cooling mask before bed can work wonders too! These are designed to provide hydration and moisturize the skin through the night. You’ll thank us when that minty cooling sensation hits your face.
So try the ones that work for you, and catch that midsummer night’s dream finally!
