Is Sleeping Naked Good For You?

While some of us wouldn’t dream of sleeping in the buff, there are those who love sleeping naked.

Here’s some great reasons why you should start taking your clothes off at night!

The benefits of sleeping in the nude

  • It’s cheaper and easier. No more spending money on PJs, no more washing!
  • Skin to skin contact with your partner releases a feel-good hormone called oxytocin and can help alleviate stress and depression.
  • It helps to regulate body temperature. If you’re too hot in bed, your core body temperature will struggle to fall which you need to trigger your sleep mechanism.
  • It’s better for skin. Parts of your body can get to breathe which lowers the risk of skin diseases and it also helps improve blood circulation.
  • Maintains healthy sex organs. PJs can restrict air flow whereas sleeping naked allows free circulation of air around the female genital organs, reducing the risk of infection.
  • You may sleep better. No PJ restrictions, just you and the cool clean sheets cocooning you.
