Finally Science recommends it! We’ll probably have to take the “less is more” on to the bed.
Let me whisper this in your ear
7 Reasons To Sleep TOTALLY Naked Tonight, According To Science
1. You’ll Have Better Skin:
It’s good for your skin, which likes to breathe, says Jenny Block, author of Oh Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm. Especially if you tend to sweat at night, sleeping sans clothes can be a great idea. Wet, constricted skin leads to breakouts and fun stuff like athlete’s foot. (Just consider the tragedies we see at the gym!)
2. You’ll Regulate Your Hormones:
Sleeping naked can help regulate your cortisol also known as stress hormone levels because your
body remains cooler than when it’s clothed. Cortisol can creep up when the body gets too warm, leading to anxiety, food cravings, and weight gain. It can also manage your melatonin and growth hormone levels — again, by keeping you cooler — which helps to keep you younger.According to Huffington Post, cortisol secretion is activated when you’re feeling under pressure. When your body is truly resting and recuperating ( between 10:00p.m. and 2:00a.m.) is when cortisol is at its lowest.
3. You’ll Feel Happier:
If you share a bed, the pair of you sleeping naked is a no-brainer way to increase intimacy.Enjoying skin-on-skin contact with your partner on a consistent basis increases the release of oxytocin. “Oxytocin is the feel good hormone which boosts our mood and make us happier overall,” says Bennett-Cook.
4. IT’LL HELP YOU DE-STRESS:
According to The Huffington Post, sleeping naked lowers cortisol — known as the “stress hormone” — as cortisol secretion is activated when you’re feeling under pressure. When your body is truly resting and recuperating (between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.) is when cortisol is at its lowest.
5. It will boost your self-esteem:
If you feel good and are connected to your body, you’ll feel comfortable with how you look. When you get good sleep, you make less errors. There’s nothing like some peace of mind to lift your self-esteem.
6.You’ll get way better sleep:
According to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, your body temperature naturally declines as a part of your Circadian Rhythm as you sleep deeply.
Sleeping in clothes prevents the release of HGH, the growth hormone. This hormone is responsible for doing body repairs like stimulating all your vital organs (even your brain!) in the middle of the night, says Messenger. This lowers your risk of everything from heart disease to diabetes. It also stimulates the immune system, meaning you’ll wake up healthier — and stay healthy longer.
