Such familiar things as pajamas, sheets and blankets, a towel, a toothbrush can do a lot of harm to your body. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? These things mean to protect our health and body, but if we do not observe the necessary hygiene, they will make us a lot of problems.
How often do you change your pajamas? You will be very surprised, but most of us do not do it often enough. According to the statistics, men on average change their pajamas every 13 days, and women every 17 days.
If you have goose bumps from this statistics, there is a good reason: pajamas become very dirty too quickly. You should change your pajamas every day. Many people avoid this problem and sleep naked. Many other people feel fine, going to bed in the same pajamas for two-three weeks in a row.
It is high time to get rid of this bad habit. It is very unhygienic to put on the same pajamas day by day. You should change your pajamas every day to stay healthy and not to get problems with your health. Look at eight reasons for doing this:
#1. Staph Infections. They almost always live on our skin. These are very common germs that we have in the nose and mouth, but do not cause any harm while there are few of them. If every night to sleep in the same pajamas, there is a risk that there will become a lot these germs. Then, any small cut or even a scratch will be enough to help them penetrate into the body and infect you with a painful and deadly infection.
#2. Pimples. If you do not change your pajamas often enough, it accumulates bacteria, fat and dead skin cells. All these harmful things rub against your pores, when you sleep. In the results, your pores are hammered and inflamed, turning into nasty pimples, and sometimes into the cysts of sebaceous glands. Pimples and cysts are not only painful in themselves, but also serve as excellent gates for other microbes and viruses.

#3. Dust Mites. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that live in all dwellings. It is completely impossible to get rid of them, but you can definitely take steps to prevent them from entering your bed and your body. Dust mites feed, in particular, with dead skin, so they are very attracted by dirty pajamas full of dead skin cells. The dirtier your pajamas are, the more mites are on it. They can lead to difficulty breathing during sleep.
#4. Bad odors. Dirty pajamas absorb sweat and sebaceous discharge of the body. Bacteria grow in wet and dark places, and can be the cause of unpleasant odors. Taking a shower before going to bed, but then putting on your dirty pajamas, you level your work and give smelly bacteria a chance to grow on your body.
#5. Not fresh feeling. Wearing dirty pajamas in the evening can make you will feel dirty in the morning, especially if you took a shower before going to bed. This is a consequence of the fact that all the rubbish from the dirty pajamas stuck to your skin. If you sleep in dirty clothes, all the dirt is passed on to you.
#6. Poor sleep. Wearing fresh pajamas gives a feeling of freshness, comfort and comfortable rest. So, vice versa, when you go to bed in dirty pajamas, it prevents you from falling asleep, because you scratch yourself, the feeling of greasiness disturbs you and you are simply uncomfortable and can not sleep well at night.
#7. Allergies. Dirty pajamas can lead to allergic reactions. If you are allergic to dust, you just need to change your pajamas every day, or at least every other day. Allergies, asthma and other respiratory disturbances are exacerbated while you are sleeping, because it becomes more difficult to breathe at night.
#8. Other germs. Wearing dirty pajamas, you force your immune system to fight with the constant invasion of germs, upper respiratory tract problems and various bacteria that cause pimples. All these factors weaken your immunity. So, you can get sick very easily. If suddenly you have stomach problems or a runny nose, it is possible that your dirty pajamas is guilty in this.
