8 Best Cooling Sheets 2018
The Best Sheets To Keep You Cool And Sweat-Free All Night
While you're snoozing in Dreamland, your body is toiling away on Earth to keep your temperature in a healthy range. The process is called thermoregulation. But some of us have a higher internal thermometer than others—including people who naturally run hot, are going through menopause, or have a condition like diabetes or hyperthyroidism—and suffer from night sweats as a result. Waking up drenched night after night is bad enough, but being too hot can also throw off your sleep cycle and interfere with your ability to get quality shut-eye, according to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF).
To the rescue: cooling sheets, which can keep you from overheating while you sleep. Look for soft, breathable fabrics like cotton or bamboo, or ones that are specifically designed to wick away moisture, says Michael Breus, PhD, author of and a clinical psychologist who specializes in sleep disorders. Additionally, the NSF recommends staying away from high thread count sheets; though the fabric feels luxurious against the skin, it turns out the tighter weave hinders their breathability.
Here are 10 sets of cooling sheets that meet our experts' criteria. A sweat-free night's sleep awaits!

Moisture-wicking sheets work by pulling moisture off the surface of the skin, says Dr. Breus. This option is specifically designed to do that and more: Its SMART fabric is also stain-resistant, ultra-soft, and super breathable.
