Why buy Organic Bedlinen

Why buy Organic Bedlinen

3

There are many reasons to buy organic bedlinen, but most obviously it is because quite simply, by choosing to buy the softest, purest organic cotton you have made a great choice with many positive benefits. Most organic bedding is made from organic cotton, which is grown from non-genetically modified plants without the aid of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Organic Cotton bedlinen doesn’t cost the earth, organic cotton products such as bedding are becoming increasingly popular for those striving for an eco-friendly home, but organic bedding collection is priced so that people can afford the luxury of beautiful bedlinen which positively benefits everyone.

Regular non-organic bedding may contain residual chemicals from the production process. This can irritate people with sensitive skin or allergies. The effects of these chemicals may include headaches, dizziness, difficulties with memory and difficulties with sleeping. Organic cotton bedding has none of these side effects and will ensure that you get a good night’s sleep without any irritation to your skin. Organic bedding can offer not only a peaceful night’s sleep, but peace of mind.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

Get Your Beauty Sleep

They say that an hour before midnight is worth three afterwards. That’s the age-old adage. But does it have any substance? Some people swear that sleep is the most powerful rejuvenating treatment of them all. And  apparently Penelope Cruz, Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zelwegger swear it keeps them beautiful. Beauty sleep is real, it’s free, and when you skimp on sleep, it shows on your face.

Tired skin sags, bags, and loses its luster. From 8pm to 11pm is the time for hydration and stimulation, while 11pm to 3am is the time for nutrition and regeneration, and 3am to 5am is the time for resting. While you sleep, your skin renews itself and new skin cells grow and replace older cells, repairing and restoring and rebalancing. It’s also a time when all sorts of hormonal and metabolic changes happen in and the body, including your skin, so it’s time to remember that a lack of sleep can disrupt those processes.

Seven or eight hours of sleep is ideal for most of us. More than that can mean we wake up looking puffy and feeling sluggish. Of course, very few adults are in bed at 8pm and, as the hormone that triggers sleep – melatonin – peaks at around 11pm, this is the time we should naturally get tired.

Not enough oxygen in your bedroom affects blood flow to the skin, causing puffiness. Make sure the room is not too warm – switch off the heating, and open a window. And also having a comfortable bed and good bedlinen always helps.

How much Sleep Do You Need?

How much Sleep Do You Need?

1

Oh don’t we need our sleep! Why we need it, why it can be hard to get, and how that affects everything from our daily routine to our income.. So, how much sleep is ideal? Studies show that people who sleep between 6.5 hr. and 7.5 hr. a night, live the longest. And people who sleep 8 hr. or more, or less than 6.5 hr., they don’t live quite as long.  The amount of sleep you need depends on various factors — especially your age.

Consider these general guidelines for different age groups:

Untitled

Pregnancy. Changes in a woman’s body during early pregnancy can increase the need for sleep.

Aging. Older adults need about the same amount of sleep as younger adults. As you get older, however, your sleeping patterns might change. Older adults tend to sleep more lightly and for shorter time spans than do younger adults.

Previous sleep deprivation. If you’re sleep deprived, the amount of sleep you need increases.

Sleep quality. If your sleep is frequently interrupted or cut short, you’re not getting quality sleep. The quality of your sleep is just as important as the quantity.

Contrary to what is often thought, sleep is actually an active, organised process. How and when we sleep is governed by a number of factors. These include factors under our control, such as whether or not we are sleep deprived, and factors beyond our control.

But going to bed also has the factor that sleeping in a good bed with great bedlinen makes it all the more inviting! Also washing your bedlinen regularly is as important too. If your bed is uncomfortable uninviting them the chances are it’s a put off and not a very good nights sleep! Get your beautiful bedlinen and a GOOD nights sleep with The Fine Cotton Company!

How to Choose your Duvet Cover

How to Choose your Duvet Cover

4 3 5

Deciding whether or not to buy a duvet cover: Duvets and down comforters are pretty expensive on their own, and spending even more on a down comforter cover can sometimes be a tough choice to make. However, buying a comforter cover is probably a wise investment for several reasons. First, using a comforter cover lengthens the life of your bedding duvet or comforter by protecting it from wear and tear, so instead of replacing an expensive duvet a few years down the road, you can simply buy a new, inexpensive duvet cover.

2

Second, using a duvet cover keeps your duvet looking good by protecting it from stains, dust and dirt. This is especially important since most duvets are white and readily display spills and stains. Third, a duvet cover or comforter cover will save you cleaning costs. Most down comforters can’t be washed in a home washing machine, and cleaning bills to clean comforters can stack up over time.

Down comforter covers, on the other hand, can be quickly removed from your comforter and tossed into the wash. Finally, duvet covers offer an inexpensive way to change the look of your bedding. Instead of buying entirely new bedding, you can simply buy a new duvet cover set and change the look of your room. Find the best set that suits you, do you want a duvet cover that also come packaged with coordinating sheets, pillow cases or pillow shams, or do you want to avoid that matchy matchy look in your bedroom?

6 2

Then look for a bedding set that has a printed duvet, but shams and sheets in solid colours, it will break up too much of an all over   pattern that in a small room can be too much. Silk duvets are a little more expensive, but are also washable and can come in vibrant and rich colours that will give your bedroom a rich and sumptuous look.

Think about changing your duvet cover to suit the seasons, like summery linen duvet covers for spring and summer, or rich colours in big deep bold prints or rich block colours  for winter covers.

How Well Do You Sleep?

How well do you sleep?

How much time do you think that we spend in bed, sleeping? It is actually a whopping 1/3rd of our life. So how much does it matter to what we sleep in and under the sheets. The mattress or the bedlinen, and taking into account the bedroom itself. Your bedlinen is a most important part of giving you that great nights sleep, and dependant on what type of bedlinen, whether cotton, linen, silk, or flannel, it is important that you choose wisely.

2

Firstly Make sure that you choose the right TOG quilt, its just as important that you get the season’s right as well, too heavy and summer will be a nightmare, too thin in winter and you will be as cold as an iceberg for the season and your personal body temperature. You’ll want bedding which is breathable and regulates your body heat systematically, making it less likely that you’ll get woken up from being either too cold, or over hot. When it comes to bed linen, spending a little extra on high quality that comes highly recommended.

Tips for Making a Comfortable Bed

There’s nothing like the feeling of getting into a comfortable bed.

If you’ve just taken the BED MOT or if your bed has seen better days, it may be time to think about investing in a new one.

If you want to improve the comfort of your current bed, here are a few tips for doing just that.

Start with a deep filled mattress enhancer – brilliant for a comfortable night’s sleep. Try to use a natural, breathable one to prevent overheating.

Next put on the mattress protector in 100% cotton. This fits over the topper and should be changed regularly.

Then put on a good quality bottom sheet – if you’re using a fitted sheet, make sure it’s extra deep so it doesn’t ping off in the night. If you use a flat sheet, ensure that it’s tucked in properly so it doesn’t become wrinkled as you are sleeping.

As you spend between a quarter and a third of your life sleeping, it is important that you are as comfortable as possible.   Invest in a natural duvet to ensure it is breathable to prevent you overheating. There are many types including silk, goose down, alpaca and wool. Pick the correct Tog rating to suit you and the heat in your home.

Pillows need to be comfortable and breathable – pick a pillow that suits the way you sleep.

Cover your duvet and pillows with good quality, breathable natural duvet cover and pillowcases.

Have a light throw or blanket in a luxurious lambswool angora or cashmere to add an extra layer.
