Sleeping naked is nice, most people agree on this point. And yet, only 10% of the French cross the course. Perhaps they will change their minds when they learn seven scientific reasons why spending the night in its simplest device is good for your health.
1. It helps to fall asleep faster
By falling asleep naked, you are more likely to fall asleep quickly. Body temperature is one of the keys to the proper functioning of the circadian rhythm or biological clock. It changes throughout the day, gradually diminishing over the course of the evening. This is one of the reasons you start to get slack after a certain time. Sleeping naked will allow you to lower your body temperature faster, thus helping you to fall into Morpheus’ arms faster. Down with overheated bedrooms and pajamas.

2. It’s good for the skin and the hair
This famous decrease in body temperature does not only help you sleep quickly, it also stimulates an anti-aging hormone, melatonin. This regenerates cells and thus improves the quality of the skin and hair.
3. It helps prevent infections
Forgetting your clothes allows the body to breathe and therefore reduces perspiration, humidity and therefore the production of bacteria and infections, especially vaginal for women. Because remember that the vagina is a hot and humid environment, which makes it the ideal place for the proliferation of bacteria. Sleeping naked can therefore help reduce the risk of yeast infection by allowing some of the heat and moisture in the vagina to escape overnight. Regarding the bed, prefer cotton sheets to synthetic materials, which breathe less well.
4. It’s better for the planet
Who says nudity, says more pajamas and therefore less laundry and water saved. Logically.
5. t’s good for the libido
As one would have suspected, sleeping naked can give your partner ideas and help rekindle / maintain the flame. According to a survey conducted in the United Kingdom in 2014 among a thousand married couples, 57% of those who slept naked said they were “extremely happy” with their relationship compared to 48% who preferred to sleep in their pajamas. “There are a lot of factors that can affect the success of a relationship, but a very important factor is the bedroom environment,” recalled Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, researcher who took part in the study.
6. It’s good for male fertility
In 2018, researchers found, after a study of 656 men , that those who wore boxers produced more sperm than those who wore tighter underwear. No doubt because relatively loose underwear helps keep the testicles cool. On the contrary, high temperatures in the scrotum can negatively affect their functioning. Logically, sleeping naked could ventilate your testicles at night, thereby improving sperm production.
7. It improves the quality of life
According to another study, also published in 2018 , participating in “naturist activities” could improve the quality of life, the image that we have of our body and self-esteem. We imagine that it also works with the fact of sleeping in an Adam or Eve outfit.
In addition, when you sleep in pajamas, underwear or under a duvet, you limit your production of somatotropin or growth hormone. This prevents you from burning your fat overnight and disrupts your muscle recovery. On the contrary, sleeping naked will help you to free your movements and regulate your levels of cortisol or stress hormones, which will lower your blood pressure, stimulate your appetite and improve your libido in the process. We come back to it.
