Allergies do more than ruin your nights, they also damage your health
All human beings are different, but if there is one thing that unites us: we all need sleep to function properly. So why let allergies spoil that?
The reason you might have extra trouble falling asleep is that allergy symptoms often get worse at night. This leads to a double whammy 😒, as not only do you sleep less, but you also sleep poorly. Yet a full night's sleep is essential for good physical and mental health.
Getting at least seven hours of sleep a night is essential, as it helps to:
Therefore, letting allergies ruin your nights can have significant and lasting consequences on your health.
If you're still reading this, chances are you're dealing with the scourge of allergies on a regular basis, in which case, welcome to the club buddy! But rest assured, we have got you covered!
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, there is a simple solution to getting a good night's sleep and enjoying the benefits that come with it despite your allergies: Anti-allergy bedding (as you can see, we didn't lie about the "simple" part 😎).
Anti-allergy bedding is an effective solution for all types of allergies, but this article will detail the most common of all: dust mite allergy.
What is dust mite allergy?
It is said to be one of the most common allergies, as studies have shown that about one in ten people suffers from dust mite allergy, but what exactly is it?
Dust mite allergies are the result of a self-defence reaction from our body. The antibodies produced by our immune system regard dust mites as allergens that are dangerous substances. As a result, they produce a feeling of inflammation on our skin and in our nasal passages and lungs, causing symptoms such as itching, sneezing or difficulty in breathing.
If you experience any of these symptoms at bedtime, chances are you have a dust mite allergy and sleeping in anti-allergy bedding can help you feel better.
What are dust mites?
Dust mites are insects so small that they are impossible to see with the naked eye. They belong to the arachnid family, which also includes ticks and red spiders, for example.
They feed on dead matter, dust, pollen and fungal spores, which is the reproductive cell of fungi (a meal worthy of a three-star restaurant, isn't it?).
Contrary to popular belief, dust mites do not bite. The itching that may be experienced from their presence can only be due to an allergic reaction.
Where do dust mites come from?
Dust mites have been a part of our lives since humans began living in protected shelters. Over time, these homes have become progressively warmer, for our comfort, but unfortunately also for the convenience of these little creatures.
Indeed, if there's one thing you need to know about dust mites, it's that they like warm, damp places.
Logically, they will live best in places where they are least likely to be disturbed, i.e. places that are cleaned and vacuumed less often. This is why they are most often found in carpets, curtains, sofas and of course beds.
As our bed is one of the places we spend the most time in within our home, anti-allergy bedding is a great solution for people with dust mite allergies, as it will help you get rid of these annoying bugs and sleep peacefully.
What are the symptoms of a dust mite allergy?
Your body can react to dust mites in different ways, but the most common symptoms are:
- Sneezing and runny nose
- Itchy or watery eyes
- Irritated throat
- Rash on the skin
Knowing all these symptoms, it's no wonder that finding sleep can seem impossible for some. So what are you waiting for to sleep in anti-allergy bedding that will ease your allergies?
How does anti-allergy bedding work?
Since the beginning of this article, we have been saying that anti-allergy bedding is the solution to your allergy problems, but how does it actually work?
Anti-allergy bedding is breathable
Bambaw bed sheets are made of bamboo, a highly breathable material, making them the ideal anti-allergy bedding. Due to the structure of the bamboo fibres, moisture does not get trapped in the bedsheets but can evaporate, keeping your bed dry and at the ideal temperature. It reduces the chances of survival of dust mites and other bacteria that usually thrive in damp areas.
Anti-allergy bedding is made with a natural material
Unlike cotton, bamboo does not need pesticides to grow. Bamboo sheets, therefore, contain no chemicals and are far less aggressive on the skin than other traditional materials that tend to create itching and redness on the skin.
Bamboo bed sheets have antibacterial properties
The breathability of bamboo bed sheets and the natural character of the fabric, when combined, give Bambaw's bedsheets antibacterial properties, which means that they can limit the production of small bacterial organisms.
For all these reasons, bamboo sheets are the perfect option for anti-allergy sheets and will give you the restful nights you deserve.
What are the other ways to prevent dust mites in bedding?
In addition to switching to anti-allergy bedding, there are other solutions you can implement to limit the production of dust mites in your bed.
Regularly wash your anti-allergy bedding
One of the most effective techniques to avoid suffering from allergies at night is to wash your sheets every week. The good news is that bamboo bed sheets are one of the few linens that, instead of becoming rougher and more damaged, become softer with each wash.
This is another reason why bamboo bedding is the perfect anti-allergy bedding.
Use essential oil
Studies have shown that certain essential oils such as eucalyptus or rosemary are also effective in driving out dust mites in the short term. Opting for anti-allergy bedding is a more effective solution as it has no limit to its effect and can therefore be combined with the application of some essential oils for even greater efficiency.
Anti-allergy bedding is the solution you need to get back to sleep
Anti-allergy bedding is the simple and effective solution for restful nights and all the benefits that come with it. Do yourself and your health a favour by sleeping on the right sheets. In addition to being anti-allergenic, bamboo bed sheets are also thermoregulatory, incomparably soft and have the same benefits as silk, while being vegan. They are therefore good not only for your allergies, but also for your hair and skin.
