How Allergies Can Affect Your Sleep

Sleepers with allergies will know all too well the struggle they face when it comes to falling asleep. You may have a broken night’s sleep from sneezing all night, which will wake you from your sleep and disrupt your circadian rhythm and leave you feeling groggy when you wake up in the morning.

Or a running, wet nose can cause your face to become uncomfortable and soak your pillow, leaving you uncomfortable throughout the night, constantly having to flip your pillow to find a dry spot.

This doesn’t have to affect your sleep anymore. Keep reading to find out how to keep dust mites at bay that can trigger your allergies, and rest peacefully throughout the night.

What Are Dust Mites?

Dust mites are a common trigger for allergies such as asthma, sneezing and runny nose. Even though they look like tiny bugs, they don’t actually bite your skin. They can, however, cause your skin to break out in rashes and become uncomfortable.

Dust mites love a dark, warm environment. This makes your bed the perfect home for them to thrive in. They also love to feed off of dead skin, and dust, but don’t fear, they are tiny little creatures that can easily be controlled.

This is why hypoallergenic bedding is so important to the quality of sleep people with allergies receive.

How To Kill Dust Mites

Dust mites are pesky and irritating. But with the right bedding, and cleaning regime they can be killed with little effort.

They will die in hot washes at 60 degrees, as this is the ideal temperature to get rid of them from your bedding and duvet.
