Very slim jeans can compress the veins in the groin of the leg, which reduces blood flow to the lower legs. This phenomenon of poor blood circulation can give rise to a feeling of numbness and in some extreme cases of muscle damage. That’s what happened to a 35-year-old woman in June 2015, after moving with jeans too tight. Result, 4 days of hospitalization.
But the fact that the legs are compressed is not the only problem. When you wear tight clothing, the fabric rubs against your skin, disrupting the skin barrier, which protects against infections, as dermatologist Josh Zeichner explains.
In addition, tight-fitting clothes make you sweat more, which promotes bacterial infections. To avoid the draconian solution of the medical procedure, you may need a cortisone cream, an anti-fungal cream or antibiotics to get rid of the rash.
If jeans with slim or very close fit you like, opt for those who are a little stretch. Always wash them after wearing them. And, avoid squatting for a long time.
Stockings and sheaths = stomach pain
The stockings and sleeves may seem harmless but they can be more dangerous than slim jeans. Experts have shown that this type of underwear, chosen too tight, could crush the organs and trigger sharp stomach pains, causing acid reflux. If you continue to wear them, try as much as you can to keep them for a limited time and not a whole day.
Combinations = urinary tract infections
These outfits made of one and the same end are very fun to wear. But less fun when it comes to removing everything to go to the bathroom. This is why we drink a little less water and we go less to the toilet with a combination on the back.
When you ignore your urge to pee, urine stagnates in the bladder. This can cause severe pain in the lower abdomen or back. A condition that sometimes accompanies urinary tract infections, says Jill Rabin, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology in New York.
So, Tip # 1 is to think about drinking a lot of water and take breaks at the toilet about every three hours in the day.
Dirty pajamas = development of bacteria
We tend to forget it, but you have to change your pajamas as often as any other clothing, especially for people who sleep without panties, clothing in direct contact with the skin and mucous membranes. Neglecting this aspect would put you at risk of developing bacteria.
Another solution, sleeping naked without pajamas, or with just underwear.
Strings = vaginal mycoses
Wearing tight-fitting thongs is also a concern for bacteria once again. These may go from the rectum to the vagina, which may be the cause of a vaginal infection. The best solution is to wear strings a little looser or to adopt another type of lingerie: panties, tanga or shorty.
Leggings = Repetitive infections
The leggings have the advantage of embracing the body, to marry the forms in the smallest details. But because of this, they rub on your skin, which disrupts the natural cycle of perspiration.
In other words, it might be that these skinny pants are the dirtiest clothes you have in your closet … Book it for your gym session and machine it every other day. You will rule out the risk of developing bacteria, according to Dr. Zeichner.
Swimwear = repeated infections again
Beware of the hot bikini and still wet in contact with the private parts: it is a nest of bacteria. Synthetic fabrics like this keep moisture for a long time, says Owen Montgomery, a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
If you are prone to repeated infections, wearing a wet swimsuit will increase your risk. But there is no question of a cross on the pool and the beach this summer! It’s just a matter of being more vigilant: when you get out of the water, dry quickly and the danger will be eliminated.
In addition, just as for the sake of slim jeans and leggings too tight, do not forget to choose a swimsuit to your size, which does not oppress you. The pants should not leave you marks on the skin. This is how to avoid infections and itching effectively.
Underwear color = irritation
Tissue dye can irritate fragile skin around the vagina, especially if you have sensitive and fragile skin, and are prone to recurrent vaginal infections, according to Dr. Montgomery
New synthetic underwear made from special materials would likely fight against this. While waiting to get these new discoveries, you can always bet on the white cotton, it remains the safest bet.
Pants buttons = skin allergy
Because the buttons that contain nickel are known to be skin irritants, wearing pants or skirts with this type of button, you risk getting a skin allergy on your belly button and the bottom of your belly.
If you have already experienced this, there is a simple solution to remedy it: paint your button by coating it with clear nail polish. A miracle trick against the small temporary itches.
Bra underwire = irritation
Like the buttons, the bra frames (and the hooks in the back) are likely to be nickel. To protect against skin irritation without giving up underwear, opt for bra without frame, or with a frame covered with a double layer of fabric.
For the hooks in the back, you can cover them with a small strip of fabric or opt once again on the trick of the protective nail polish.
Anti-sweat headbands = acne pimples
Wrist bracelets or browbands for sports mop sweat, of course, but they also collect all bacteria, even when dry.
If you use them often, it may aggravate acne pimples and skin irritations in the broad sense. Nothing alarming but it can affect self-esteem.
High heels = muscle imbalance of the ankle
Heels are responsible for many accidents, but that’s not all. Wearing high heels for a prolonged period of time can lead to muscle imbalance in the ankle, causing internal injuries, according to a recent study published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice.
Fortunately, researchers have shown that heels special heels can reduce these deformities and the resulting pain.
Tongs = exposure to bacteria
Experts say that flip flops expose your feet to all sorts of problems: bacteria, viruses, fungi, skin problems that can go as far as the microscopic tear of the skin surface, worrying if you have problems with your immune system .
In addition, these summer sandals can cause heel pain, deform toes and trigger arch pain. So, you can put your flip-flops to go to the shower and the swimming pool of the hotel but avoid walking everywhere with all the summer.
