Premium Cooling Sheets: Find Relief from Sleep Heat™
For those of us who sleep hot, not even the onset of cooler weather can save us from night sweats. Blame it on whatever you’d like—metabolism, energy level, location, your age, your partner—it doesn’t matter. Sleeping hot equates to tossing and turning throughout the night.
If you’ve done your research, you know that there are a number of cooling gel pillows and cooling protectors available in today’s market. But what about your sheets? Wouldn’t it make sense if the one layer that directly surrounds you while you sleep also kept you cool? We thought so, too.
Glacies™ premium sheets by PureCare Elements™ blend PureCare’s exclusive mineral based FRíO™ rapid chill cooling fibers with ultra-plush Tencel® threads, creating a luxury responsive textile that is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, and cools five times faster than traditional polyester. FRíO rapid chill cooling fibers are a unique technical textile that fuses crushed Micarex minerals with liquid polyester. Sounds fancy, but it translates to one simple truth—this technology is at the core of every fiber and never washes out. These Micarex minerals actually create thousands of heat-dispersing channels throughout every fiber, helping to move heat away from your body faster than normal threads.
But the cooling aspects of Glacies are just the start. Glacies premium sheets offer amazing fit, feel, and finish. They feature a pocketed precision-fit™ corner and elastic cuff producing a crisp and steady fit on the sleep surface. The feeling is unlike any other with Micarex cooling fibers blended with Tencel® technical textiles and crafted into a luxurious sateen weave producing lush fabrics and lavish comfort. On top of that, an antibacterial silver ion treatment is added to the sheets, helping to locate and deactivate bacteria on contact.

Top 5 Reasons You Aren't Sleeping
We’ve all had those nights when we just can’t seem to get to sleep. But if this is more the rule than the exception for you, it’s time to get to the bottom of your restless nights. Sleep is one of the most vital pieces of the health and wellness puzzle and can make or break your ability to function, let alone succeed.
Quieting the ruckus caused by the countless thoughts running through your mind can seem overwhelming, if not impossible. One of the best things you can do to clear your mind before bed is to establish a relaxing nighttime routine that helps your mind release the stresses of the day and slowly settle into the quietude of rest. The best part is this means taking time for yourself. Pick up the book you’ve been meaning to read, dedicate time for meditation, jot down your thoughts in a journal, step away from your phone, email, and television, and let your mind relax. Don’t forget other senses can help you sleep. Consider adding the soothing effects of aromatherapy to your pillow or mattress protectors.
Over 60 million Americans suffer from the effects of nighttime allergies and asthma. If you find yourself stuffy and wheezing when you lay down, you’re most likely suffering from allergens caused by the dust mites, pet dander, pollen, or bacteria within your sleep environment. Make sure that your mattress and pillows are protected and that all of your bedding is laundered on a weekly basis.
#3: Light Sleeper
Light sleeper? Me too. It’s the worst. Especially when you share your sleep environment with an avid snorer. But did you know that having the right pillow can make a huge difference? The right head, neck, and shoulder support provides proper alignment that can help reduce snoring. PureCare’s memory foam pillows offer customizable options to both support and comfort you.
Then there is the tick of the clock—the biological clock, that is. As you age, your body and sleep needs change. One of the most common issues is sleep heat. If you seek cooler sleep, check out PureCare’s entire collection of FRÍO® rapid chill cooling fiber protectors. FRíO fibers are tested and proven to cool 5x faster than regular polyester. If you have muscle aches and soreness, PureCare’s Celliant protectors and premium sheets help to improve blood oxygenation and relieve minor muscle aches and pains. Reduce pain. Heal faster. Sleep better.®
Seems silly, right? How could a cluttered room (or home) keep you up at night? The truth is that clutter can create a breeding ground for dust, dust-mites, pollen, and other irritants. Give your sleep environment a full helping of fall cleaning by not only vacuuming and dusting but by up-grading your bed linens, protectors, and pillows. You might just sleep better on these long winter nights.
