There are many people out there who are fond of wearing the same pajamas to bed repeatedly for several days. They believe that since they’re not exactly sweating when sleeping, it’s okay to use their pajamas for days before changing into fresh ones.
The fact is this is actually a very bad habit that one should let go of right away. Not changing clothes regularly is very unsanitary and unsafe for overall health and wellness. Read on to find out why.
Many people think they can wear the same pajamas over and over again because they’re not sweating.
Professor Sally Bloomfield of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said that since pajamas rub against the skin, they’re loaded with microorganisms.
People are carriers of the E-coli bacteria which can spread easily, especially if a person doesn’t wear underwear under their pajamas.
Dirty clothes can also cause skin breakouts like acne and pimples.
Dirty pajamas can cause itchiness which can keep you awake all night.
Wearing unsanitary pajamas can also worsen existing allergies.
The dirt building up on your skin can also cause you to smell bad even when you’ve taken a shower.
By now you should know better than not to change your pajamas regularly. Avoid allergies, acne, infection, and other harmful health problems by always wearing clean clothes even when you’re only using them to sleep in.
