1. Too hot! 

Sure, the most obvious cause of night sweats is falling asleep with the wrong room temperature. By the way, this does not only have to happen when it is hot in summer, even if the room you sleep in is too cold, this can also lead to sweating. 

The perfect temperature in the bedroom is around 18 degrees. Airing out just before bed or fans can help on hot summer nights so that you can sleep more comfortably. 

2. Synthetic bedding and sleepwear

If you sweat a lot at night, it can also be because you sleep with the wrong bed linen. Duvets that are too thick and laundry with synthetic content cause your body temperature to rise unnecessarily and cause a sticky skin feeling. It's best to sleep in fabrics like cotton, linen or of course our cozy muslin bed linen.
