What are the ben­e­fits of sleep­ing in the nude? This ques­tion puz­zled sci­en­tists and doc­tors. And they found 12 unde­ni­able ben­e­fits, after learn­ing which, you will imme­di­ate­ly get rid of clothes for sleep! Even the most fash­ion­able and com­fort­able.

From weight loss to dia­betes pre­ven­tion, every­thing you need to know about the “bonus­es” of sleep­ing naked tells Med­AboutMe.

Why is it good to sleep naked?

Fall asleep as soon as possible

Fall asleep as soon as possible

The best air tem­per­a­ture in the sleep­ing room is no more than 18 degrees Cel­sius, the doc­tors assure. The stuffi­ness in the room, as well as the “green­house” con­di­tions under the cov­ers, pre­vent falling asleep, pro­vok­ing insom­nia.

Dur­ing sleep, the body tem­per­a­ture tends to drop, this “nat­ur­al cool­ing” guar­an­tees us strong and sweet dreams. That’s why it’s so hard to fall asleep on a hot sum­mer night! “Rise in body tem­per­a­ture reduces the pro­duc­tion of the “sleep hor­mone” mela­tonin,” experts from Nation­al Soci­ety for Healthy SleepUSA.

More Vitamin D

In the sun­ny sea­son, we are tra­di­tion­al­ly afraid of insid­i­ous UV rays, which strive to “under­mine” the health of the skin, start­ing the aging process. Sun pro­tec­tion dur­ing this peri­od is espe­cial­ly impor­tant, and the high­er the SPF, the bet­ter.

But few peo­ple think that the sun’s rays are dan­ger­ous only when we are direct­ly under them for a long time. Mod­er­ate sun­bathing — 10–15 min­utes ear­ly in the morn­ing — will bring huge ben­e­fits! They will improve your mood and increase the con­cen­tra­tion of vit­a­min D in the body!

If you sleep naked — the sun, look­ing out the win­dow, will give you health and will help strength­en bones, increase immu­ni­ty. In gen­er­al, sleep­ing naked at dawn is very use­ful!

Prevention of skin diseases

Arti­fi­cial fab­rics and tight-fit­ting cloth­ing inter­fere with skin res­pi­ra­tion. Mod­ern fash­ion encour­ages us to wear spec­tac­u­lar, but often uncom­fort­able things — skin­ny jeans, tight dress­es and suits. Increased sweat­ing caused, among oth­er things, by tight cloth­ing con­tributes to the appear­ance of acne and aller­gic reac­tions, as well as the devel­op­ment of bac­te­r­i­al skin dis­eases.

Sleep­ing in the nude min­i­mizes all risks, allow­ing the skin to stay healthy and beau­ti­ful longer. In addi­tion, being with­out clothes, a per­son sweats less, mak­ing night rest even more pleas­ant.

Increased libido

Increased libido

If inti­mate rela­tion­ships in a cou­ple have become very pre­dictable, the best advice for incit­ing pas­sion is to sleep in the nude. The con­tact of two bod­ies leads to the for­ma­tion of an explo­sive “hor­mon­al cock­tail” that sets part­ners in a lov­ing mood and pro­vokes pas­sion. No under­wear will cause such an effect!

The most pleas­ant way to increase the lev­el of the “love hor­mone” — oxy­tocin — is to cud­dle up to the body of a part­ner.

Improving sperm quality

A group of sci­en­tists from Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty from Cal­i­for­nia, proved that sleep­ing in the nude affects the repro­duc­tive func­tions of men. The fact is that under­wear often increas­es body tem­per­a­ture in the tes­ti­cles, while sleep­ing naked does not have such an effect. This is why the qual­i­ty of sperm in men who love to sleep naked is usu­al­ly high­er.

Bacteria protection

There is good news for the fair sex! Sleep­ing naked is good for a wom­an’s inti­mate health. It is well known that bac­te­ria love warm and humid envi­ron­ments, so tight and tight under­wear is con­traindi­cat­ed for women strug­gling with yeast infec­tions.

Nor­mal air cir­cu­la­tion dur­ing sleep pre­vents the cre­ation of a “green­house effect”, so loved by the bac­te­r­i­al flo­ra, and to some extent is a deter­rent to increas­ing their num­bers.

Balance of important hormones

Balance of important hormones

Sleep­ing at a mod­er­ate tem­per­a­ture helps reduce the lev­el of cor­ti­sol — the “stress hor­mone”, increas­es the amount of soma­t­ropin — the “growth hor­mone”, and at the same time ensures suf­fi­cient pro­duc­tion of mela­tonin — the “sleep hor­mone”. The tan­dem of three hor­mones reduces anx­i­ety lev­els and food crav­ings, which pro­motes sweet dreams.

“No” to clothing marks

This prob­lem is more often faced by the fair sex. Thin bra straps that dig into the shoul­ders, tight elas­tic bands of skirts and trousers that leave traces on the hips, and slim­ming under­wear that caus­es red­ness …

Tight under­wear slows down the cir­cu­la­tion of blood in the body, caus­es severe dis­com­fort and can even lead to faint­ing!

Sleep­ing naked is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for the body to relax from con­ven­tions, get rid of red marks on the skin and chaf­ing.

“Yes” to an accelerated metabolism

Falling asleep in a cool room, you help the body to fire up the metab­o­lism. In turn, this pro­motes weight loss.

In addi­tion, sleep with­out clothes, as men­tioned above, reduces the pro­duc­tion of the “stress hor­mone” cor­ti­sol, and its increased con­cen­tra­tion is one of the main rea­sons for weight gain, sci­en­tists are sure.

Reduced chance of getting diabetes

Accord­ing to reports Amer­i­can Nation­al Sleep Foun­da­tion, sleep­ing in the nude reduces the risk of type 2 dia­betes. This is because cool tem­per­a­tures improve metab­o­lism and low­er blood glu­cose lev­els.

Hardening of the body

Hardening of the body

Every per­son strives to be ener­getic and get sick less. And sleep­ing in the nude con­tributes to this! Mod­er­ate­ly cool tem­per­a­tures hard­en the body and strength­en the immune sys­tem. Because of this, you run the risk of being the only per­son work­ing in the office, while oth­ers drink cold reme­dies.

Young and fresh look

A full night’s rest not only favor­ably affects the com­plex­ion, but also in gen­er­al — on the health of the whole organ­ism! Sci­en­tists from Uni­ver­si­ty of War­wick found that chron­ic sleep depri­va­tion was asso­ci­at­ed with a risk of dia­betes and heart dis­ease. But that’s not all!

“Growth hor­mone”, which is active­ly pro­duced at night, is “afraid” of high tem­per­a­tures. If the room is stuffy and hot, its pro­duc­tion is reduced. So, the chances of a per­son to look attrac­tive and young! Since soma­t­ropin is involved in the process of cell regen­er­a­tion, it is the main “engine” of mus­cle growth and pro­motes active fat burn­ing.


Sleep­ing in the nude is a great way to feel more com­fort­able in your own body. A pleas­ant awak­en­ing, which always comes after a sound healthy sleep, is the key to cheer­ful­ness and ener­gy for the whole day! And this is what will help you look young and beau­ti­ful every day.

Expert com­ment

Before you say that sleep­ing in the nude is not for you, try it! You will be sur­prised how nat­ur­al and com­fort­able you will feel. What needs to be done to make dreams strong?

  1. Invest in a good bed and linens. Bed­ding should be com­fort­able. Opt for nat­ur­al fibers like cot­ton or silk and change your sheets more often.
  2. Main­tain a cool tem­per­a­ture in the room. Some of the ben­e­fits of sleep­ing in the nude are lost if you sleep in a “sauna”. What’s more, your sleep may suf­fer in a room that is too warm, whether you’re wear­ing clothes or not. For most peo­ple, the ide­al room tem­per­a­ture for sleep­ing is 18°C.
  3. If sleep­ing naked isn’t for you, try wear­ing as lit­tle cloth­ing as pos­si­ble when going to bed. So you will avoid over­heat­ing and will sleep sound­ly.

Good dreams!
