The moment you enter your home your first thought most times is to get rid of your clothes. Stripping down to your birthday suit is actually helpful and full of health benefits. The following are the benefits according to medical experts.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 1: Loads you up with vitamin D
We always slather ourselves with sunscreen, fearing damage the sun will do to our skin. Sun can cause damage only if you stay under it for a long time, says Dr Satish Bhatia, Dermatologist, Mumbai. Soak yourself in the early morning rays for about 10-15 minutes. This session will help in boosting the production of vitamin D and will also help boost your mood.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 2: Gives a healthy skin
Our skin needs air to breathe. Covering yourself in tight clothing can weaken your skin, because your skin reabsorbs the toxins, which come out when you sweat, says Dr Satish. Being naked will help your skin to respire, by eliminating the toxins from your body.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 3: No ‘Red’ marks
Being free from your clothing will help you prevent those red pressure marks left by your too tight bra or panty elastic band. Also, shedding your clothes for a while will help improve blood circulation throughout the body.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 4: Healthy brain
According to a study – barefoot running helps to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s in adults. Barefoot walking or running helps in vital stimulation of our brain. Dr Sunesara, General Physician, Mumbai says, the stimulation, which is created in the sole of the foot encourages our brain to boost more neuron connections. Besides, it also helps to increase brain flexibility.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 5: Relaxes you
Nakedness is a sort of therapeutic massage for depression, low-self esteem and other mental problems. Lying naked helps to improve your blood flow, detoxifies your system, and thus provides you warmth and freedom.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 6: Lowers risk of infection
When clothes are soaked with sweat, they can be a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause various infections. Nudity lowers your risk to these harmful fungi and bacteria and maintains personal hygiene.
Health Benefit of Being Naked # 7: Improves fertility
Wearing tight elastic underwear can restrict the blood flow to the penis and genital area. Tight underwear or low waist jeans directly press onto your penis, which further slowly kills nerve receptors in the surrounding area and lowers sperm count.
