- How breathable is the fabric? Fabrics that allow your body to release heat and maintain a steady temperature will help keep your sensitive skin happy. Certain materials can completely block airflow, which will aggravate any existing skin problems.
- Do you know your personal allergic reaction triggers?¬† Not all fabrics and fills were created equal. If down feathers are your allergy downfall, you'll need to look for down alternative fills in your pillows and comforter.¬† Love the deeper darker colors in bedding but wake up itchy? You may have a skin sensitivity to certain textile dyes.¬†¬†
- When do you change your sheets?¬†Before you place new sheets on the bed, it's always a good practice to wash them in your go-to laundry detergent to ensure they are fresh and pure following the manufacturing process.¬† Over time, one of the worst contact allergens found in bedding is dust.¬† Simply washing your bedding once a week can usually lead to no more itchiness and allergy symptom relief from dust.¬†¬†
