Do you constantly sweat at night?

If the sleeping climate is not right, that can be a reason.

The last few weeks have been exhausting and grueling for many.

The heat waves that rolled over Germany made many people groan in this country.

But it is even worse when the heat builds up in the last refuge, in your own four walls.

If the temperatures don't drop in the evening or at night, airing won't do much either.

With the result that we are too warm and cannot sleep properly.

Sweating at night: how much sweat is still normal?

As a result, many feel exhausted the next morning and not able to perform the day's work.

Others, on the other hand, are very concerned because they generally sweat a lot.

Is there a serious illness behind it?

In some cases, it can even have psychological causes.

If you have too much stress at work or private or financial problems, it may be that your subconscious does not switch off even when you sleep.

With the result that you wake up bathed in sweat.

The Vital ice pillow from Third of Life (advertising link) with a ClimaCool cover can also help to cool down the body when temperatures are high at night.

The neck support pillow reliably regulates moisture and is breathable.

It is also suitable for back and side sleepers.

Basically, sweating is a vital function of the body.

When it's hot, it causes sweat to form on the skin and cool us down.

Our body has more than two million to five million individual sweat glands.

These are distributed almost everywhere on the skin, just not in places such as nail beds, the edges of lips or the eardrums in the ear.

However, if sweat production is disturbed and excessive amounts are produced, hyperhidrosis can be the underlying cause.

But when is it too much?

That is hard to say.

Sweating at night: Sweat has an important function

While we all have the same number of sweat glands as adults, not all of them are active and eventually produce sweat.

This can therefore vary from person to person and is also related to the local climatic conditions, among other things.

Nevertheless, there is a good rule of thumb: according to doctors, it is normal to lose one to two liters of sweat at night.

But we rarely notice anything about it, since it happens during sleep and over the entire body and at night.

However, if you keep waking up completely soaked, you should watch this.

Sleep cool in summer

A cooling pillow like the Vital ice from Third of Life (advertising link) with a ClimaCool cover also helps to support the body in high temperatures at night.

The neck support pillow is also individually height-adjustable and ergonomic, which is why it is equally suitable for back and side sleepers.
