Don’t you just feel like getting rid of all your clothes and relaxing your body by taking a nice shower? Well, we are sure that for most of the people there’s nothing more relieving than this.
While getting naked may be considered as an act mostly reserved for taking shower or sex. But if studies are to be believed, stripping down more often can give you some serious health benefits too. It would not only help you improve your sex life but also help you reduce stress. Irrespective of what your marital status, gender or age is, stripping down for some time can be a healthy activity for all.
If you don’t believe, here are 6 health benefits of being naked that will surely convince you enough to take out some time from your busy schedule to strip down:
Boosts your sex life
If science is to be believed, the connection between sleeping naked and better sex life is that when you bare it all while sleeping with your partner, your skin comes in direct contact with that of your partner, and this releases the love hormone. And this love hormone then makes you feel more emotionally connected to your partner and also boosts your sex drive.
Helps you in losing weight
While you might be aware that exercising on a regular basis and taking a healthy diet can help you cut down on your body fat, but did you know that getting off your clothes at night can also help you get a slimmer waist? As per several studies, it is believed that while sleeping, your body replenishes and repairs itself. Also, while you are asleep after a tiring day at work, all these body processes help you burn your body calories. And when you sleep naked, your body burns more calories. So, the more calories you burn, the slimmer you get.
Improves Vaginal Health
There are several fabrics which are not good for your skin and if made to come in direct contact with your skin, can cause redness or irritation. So, select the fabric that you wear very carefully. Especially when it comes to your vagina, you need to take proper care and be too selective while choosing the right pair of panties. According to a study, it was told that cotton panties may also be breeding grounds for bacteria that can cause UTI. So, the best way to deal with that is to go panty-less for some time. This way you’ll not only allow your vagina to breathe well but also help it maintain its pH balance.
Prevents from Breast infection
Being naked for some time can also turn out to be a healthy option for all the breastfeeding mothers. It is important for a breastfeeding mother to let her breasts get exposed to dry air after the nursing session because this way she’ll be able to prevent herself from any sort of infection and heal her cracked nipples. Breast infection, popularly known as mastitis infection may result in breast pain, redness, swelling and warmth in the breast. This is why it is advised to let your breasts get some air and not restrict them inside a padded bra all the time.
As per a study conducted at the University of Amsterdam, it was revealed that lowering your body temperature increases the quality of your sleep which reduces stress and also the number of times you wake up in the middle of the night. So, if you are wondering what makes you wake up in the middle of the night, it is nothing but your room temperature. And since you can’t change the room temperature every now and then, it is better to lower down your own body temperature by taking off your clothes while sleeping.
