There is nothing better than going to bed after a long day of tiring and strenuous activities. But before you get to bed, you might just want to strip your underwear off. Yes, strip it off.
Nothing sexual there, though.
Researchers actually found out that sleeping with your undies on might expose you to health risks, including the following health hazards:
When we sleep, our bodies tend to become warmer and if your underwear's fabric is not moisture wicking or absorbent, moisture collects on it. Thus, this creates the ideal environment for bacteria and other irritants to thrive and reproduce.
And this actually goes true for both men and women.
