We all have our favorite sleepwear before we head to bed – whether it’s pajamas, lingerie, or something simple like shirts and shorts, boxer briefs, or plain underwear.
However you might be surprised to hear that some experts have said sleeping in the nude is actually better for your health!
Don’t believe us? Then read this article to find out what makes sleeping without clothes on good for you!
Check out these 9 health benefits of sleeping without clothes:
1. Improves Sleep Quality
Uncomfortable clothing has an affect on sleep – we’re sure you know you this. Any clothes that are too tight or too thick can make your body unable to adjust to changes in temperature while sleeping.
Being completely naked while sleeping lowers our body temperature – lowering the temperature a half degree will improve sleep quality.
2. Healthier Sperm
According to research, the testicles produce better and healthier sperm quality under a temperature of 98 F. A higher temperature decreases sperm quality. For the infertile guys, this may be your ticket to a chance at starting a family.
3. Skin-to-Skin Contact Is The Best
Skin-to-skin contact with your significant other releases oxytocin which lowers stress. This improves the mood between you and your beloved. So sleeping naked with your loved one improves overall sleep quality.
4. Pain Relief
Sleeping naked relieves tension in the viscera abdomen nerve system. Removing tension in these areas improves blood circulation as well as lessens the risk of acute diarrhea, back pain, and constipation.
5. Makes Your Skin, Hair, and Body Healthier
When your bare skin is left in the breeze while you sleep, it can absorb more nutrients which improves metabolism.
This helps the sebaceous glands in secreting sebum - lubricating the skin and hair while stimulating the sweat glands.
6. Balances Melatonin and Growth Hormone Keeping You Looking Young
The anti-aging hormone melatonin and growth hormone to functions better when you keeping your body temperature around 68-70 degrees. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health.
Better sleep naked to maximize those hormones.
7. Regulates Your Cortisol – Appetite and Anxiety
The human body is more attuned to sleeping naked; it’s more comfortable.
Therefore a well rested body helps the body produce and regulate cortisol hormones. Clothes tend to overheat your body which causes cortisol levels to stay high even after you wake up.
This can lead to increased cravings for bad food, weight gain, anxiety, and more.
8. Decreases Bacteria Count in the Private Parts
Bacteria thrives in moist and warm areas – and underwear tends to keep sweat in your private areas. Sleeping without underwear then decreases bacterial growth and rashes in the private areas.
This is especially useful for women who want to prevent yeast infections due to the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions. Yeast thrives in warm and moist places as well.
According to Dr. Alyssa Dweck, an OB-GYN from Mount Kisco, New York, and a clinical assistant professor of OB/GYN at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, women who have chronic vaginitis and yeast infection must sleep without underwear.
9. Your Body Gets To Breathe Easier
Nothing is nastier than getting sweat and grime all over your body after a long day.
Your skin finally gets a breather from this hassle when you sleep naked. Give your private parts, armpits, and feet a chance to breathe after being covered all day by layers of clothing.
This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.
