Getting a good, uninterrupted night's sleep might be as simple as changing your sheets. You might think that sounds too good to be true. If you have sensitive skin, are a hot sleeper, or simply are environmentally conscious, then soft, comfortable, and eco-friendly organic bamboo sheets might be the answer to some of your dilemmas.
For many people with skin sensitivities, the first things that come to mind when dealing with their skin issues are serums, creams, oils, and medications, all designed to help manage their condition. What if there was a way to improve your skin simply by changing your bedding?
What Are Bamboo Sheets?
Bamboo bed sheets are manufactured from their namesake, the fibres of the bamboo plant. Due to the extraordinary length of bamboo fibres, it is perfect for creating long and thin threads which can then be woven into fabric. These features allow more space to weave the thread together, increasing the thread count. Unlike cotton, bamboo's thread count weighs less in the softness and overall quality of bamboo sheets. This lighter weight doesn't impact the luxurious feel that people desire in their bedding. In fact, bamboo feels similar to silk.
Why is bamboo so much better for your skin?
Here's what makes organic bamboo the ideal material for duvets sets and sheets for those suffering from acne, eczema, and other skin conditions.
Bamboo resists bacteria
Unlike cotton sheets, which can hold moisture and create the perfect breeding environment for bacteria, bamboo fabric is both antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Bamboo sheets and duvet covers wick moisture from your skin, leaving your sheets fresh and hygienic, resulting in fewer dermal flare-ups. As bed bugs and dust mites can also cause skin irritation or itchy skin, you'll be pleased to know these microscopic pests are much less likely to survive in bamboo due to the fabric's naturally occurring hypoallergenic properties.
Bamboo is temperature regulating
The thermoregulating properties of bamboo mean you're less likely to sweat at night, keeping your skin hydrated. Bamboo fabric contains millions of tiny gaps, which help keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. The thermoregulation minimises the risk of itchy skin and irritability due to overheating.
Bamboo prevents friction with your skin
Organic bamboo duvets sets are silky smooth, so the fabric prevents friction between your bedding and your skin. Not only does the fabric's inherent smoothness reduce the appearance of facial 'sleep wrinkles,' the silky-soft feel of our bamboo sheets is like silk, equivalent to 1000 thread count in cotton.
Even better, while many sheets lose their softness and become rough with regular washing, bamboo sheets stay soft on your skin and become softer as you wash them, especially treated with delicate care and eco-friendly laundry detergent.
