The current hot spell has made it difficult for many of us to get a good night’s sleep with temperatures hitting 30C in some places.

Night time temperatures have hovered around 20C making for a very sweaty and uncomfortable night.

But here are five top tips to keep you cool and help you get those magical eight hours of sleep:

• Try putting your pillowcase in the fridge so that it’s cool! Some people swear by chilling all of their sheets, but that sounds extreme...

• Shower before bed. A cool shower will help to cool you down from a day in the sun.

• Keep a jug of cool water next to the bed.

• Opening a window at the front and back of the house can provide a cooling breeze.

• Apply an organic, drug-free allergen barrier balm to the nostrils and around the bones of the eyes before you go to bed, to block pollen before it enters the body.
