Hot climates, hormonal changes, and other factors can make you feel sweaty when you're just trying to get a good night's sleep. Whether you sweat from sweltering weather or hot flashes, surrounding yourself with the right fabrics can make a world of difference.
Moisture-wicking materials have a cooling effect that helps you stay dry and comfortable all summer long. What is moisture wicking? How does it work? Find out all about the magic of moisture wicking.
Moisture-Wicking Meaning and the Science Behind It
The effects of moisture wicking might seem magical, but there's some solid science behind this fabric technology. Fabrics that wick moisture pull it away from your skin, then dry quickly. Why is this so important for staying cool and dry?
When you're covered in sweat, that's your body's way of trying to cool you off. Heavy or synthetic fabrics like merino wool, cotton, or polyester keep you feeling hot and sweaty. Silk and other moisture-wicking fabrics do a much better job of removing moisture from your skin's surface.
These materials draw moisture, such as sweat, to the outer layer of your clothes or bedding. That moisture evaporates quickly instead of hanging around, leaving you cool, dry, and ready for sleep. Moisture-wicking material, such as silk, has a hollow core that helps create this cooling effect.
Enjoy the Many Benefits of Moisture-Wicking Fabric
Most moisture-wicking fabrics are a great investment when you want a good night's sleep. Wearing these materials or resting your head on them offers some amazing benefits for your sleep environment and skin.
Creates a comfortable and cool feel
Sweat-wicking fabric can help you feel much more comfortable. It doesn't trap moisture or sweat against your skin, so you won't feel clammy or hot. Instead, moisture-wicking fibers help increase comfort.
Keeps sweat at bay
Moisture-wicking garments and linens do an outstanding job of pulling sweat away from your skin, where it evaporates. This means you won't have layers of sweat on your skin all night. These fabrics help your skin stay dry overall and prevent sweat from taking over.
Promotes radiant skin
Having oily, sweaty skin boosts your risk of having acne breakouts or other skin problems. Wearing moisture-wicking fabrics or using them as bedding helps your skin stay cleaner and healthier. That means you can look forward to having glowing skin all summer long.
