Have you ever experienced repeated nights of tossing and turning in bed, struggling to fall asleep because you feel hot and stuffy? This might be a tell-tale sign that you are a hot sleeper and your night sweats are keeping you up.

Our electric bills can be expensive, so not everyone has the privilege of blasting an air conditioner to cool themselves off every night. Singapore’s humid weather and relentless heat aren’t helping either. However, you don’t have to put yourself through this agonising predicament any longer. There is a way to combat your stuffy situation and turn things around, and it all starts with a cooling mattress.

Cooling mattresses are the lifesavers you need. They are constructed from breathable materials and enhanced with built-in cooling elements to absorb heat, ensuring a cooling sleeping surface at all times. If your body generates a significant amount of heat when you sleep,  then a cooling mattress is here to remedy the issue! Read on to find out why a cooling mattress is a sound investment and how it can significantly improve your sleep.

1. Prevent heat retention

Did you know that the material of your mattress can affect your sleeping temperature? Synthetic materials, such as foam trap a copious amount of heat over time due to increase sinkage and “hug”. On the other hand, cooling mattresses consist of layers optimised to promote excellent air circulation. They are also embedded with a cooling gel to draw heat away from your body.

At Four Star, our DETENSE | ArticSilk® Advanze Air Flex mattresses employ an all-new, revolutionary Japanese technology that remarkably improves airflow and reduce the overall temperature of your bed. In addition, the mattresses can stay cool faster and longer due to their silk-like eco fibres. The cooling gel-infused memory foam mattresses also reduces motion transfer during sleep, ensuring minimal sleeping disruptions. Furthermore, you can pair our mattresses with a customised storage bed frame, made with a German Hydraulic lift system that enables easy lifting of the mattress to store your essential belongings.

2. Promotes insomnia relief

A hot and stuffy environment is not conducive to a good night’s sleep. Studies have shown that insomnia is linked to a person’s rising body temperature during rest, as excessive heat can disrupt sleep. In contrast, a cooler sleeping surface can provide comfort to your body, allowing you to doze off peacefully at night. In addition, regulating your body temperature by cooling it down can help you fall asleep faster and increase the chances of you staying asleep throughout the night.

3. You can lose weight while you sleep

Research has shown that prolonged exposure to cooler temperatures can help you lose weight. This is because your body burns calories to stay warm. However, before we dive into the science behind this fascinating phenomenon, you need to understand that we have two kinds of fat in our body – brown and white fat.

White fat is the fat we want to get rid of in our body, as they contain extra calories, thereby increasing our weight. When we are exposed to a cooler environment, the cold air stimulates our body’s metabolism, causing it to burn the brown fat in our bodies to keep us warm. When our thermoregulatory functions activate, it converts our stored white fats to energy, decreasing the amount of white fat in our body.


With all these impressive benefits that come with purchasing a cooling mattress, gone are the days of waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat. Given Singapore’s warm and humid climate, a cooling mattress can make a world of difference to anyone that yearns for a good night’s sleep.
