Needless to say, I decided to get what I could afford, until I realised the importance of a good bedsheet. Poorly made bed sheets strive to provide products at the lowest cost possible, without putting in much thought, the user experience and needs of the customers.
So, this is for all the people who have equally sensitive skin, or just looking for tips to get your next quality, sensitive skin suitable bedsheets! Trust me, it’ll be worth quite a read.
When it comes to sensitive skin, the number one thing we have to avoid are irritants. Hence, we should always keep a lookout for hypoallergenic products.
You may ask, what exactly are hypoallergenic products and how would they qualify?
For one, hypoallergenic bedding products are effective in eliminating dust mites because of the tightly woven fabrics that have been used in the careful production of the product and as a result, the amount of dust mites are significantly decreased, and it also means for a much cleaner and fresher sleeping environment (which is very important!)
No one is a stranger to the COVID-19 situation now and working from home feels like the new normal. The amount of time we will spend in our rooms and on our beds have since intensively doubled or even tripled! Hence, it is very crucial to get better-quality products that will do you good, even in the long run.
Other than bed sheets, the other components of the bed are equally important as well. Who could forget about our mattress protectors as well? Always aim to get mattress protectors that support impermeable backings because they often use fabrics that are chemical, dye and synthetic free!
For eczematous friendly beddings, we first have to understand that eczema is not an allergy so choosing hypoallergenic beddings will not be the only solution to a good night’s sleep! Alleviating the symptoms of eczema will be best when you choose cotton bedsheets! But take note! Not all cotton bed sheets are good. Take a closer look at the specifications of the product and you will realise that not all products are fully cotton! You will be wanting to look out for high quality, organic weaves of cotton that comes without chemical additives.
Washing your bed sheets often is equally important as well, for bacteria and dust typically builds on surfaces after a period of time. Individuals with sensitive skin would be encouraged to wash their sheets once every two weeks and opt for materials which pride themselves on durability as well.
Not forgetting color, for the colour of your sheets matter too! Reasonably, lighter shades of colours like white, pale or light gray are suitable colours for sensitive skin for they contain less dye and fragrances, which will only contribute to the sensitivity of your skin.
