Socks on or socks off in bed? If you have pestered yourself enough with whether you should wear a pair of socks to bed or not, we have a definitive answer for you. Wearing socks to bed is good for you. Here are 5 obvious benefits to advocate our case for us.
Avoid hot flashes and night sweat
An awesome fact is that the human body has its own body temperature regulation system and usually when you sleep, your body temperature drops. Socks help you regulate your body temperature which in turn helps you avoid hot flashes and night sweat. Socks ensure that you sleep peacefully and without any such disturbances.
Bid farewell to cracked feet
Playing footsie with your loved one in bed is cute but the last thing you’d want is to ruin the make out session because of rough cracked feet. Skin chaffing is a common problem that people with oily skin also experience due to certain kind of shoes that they wear. Whether you have an oily skin type or dry skin type, wear socks to heal cracked and chaffed skin on your feet and prevent further damage. Use a sizeable dollop of moisturizer for good measure.
Slap on all those magazine prescribed packs
Your favourite magazines always carry a photo of perfectly smooth legs. They prescribe an extensive list of some weird concoctions and beauty masks for being the secret behind those legs. Generally they advise you to apply these packs overnight to achieve the best results. What follows is a tussle between messed up bed sheets and sexy-smooth legs. Wear an old pair of knee socks after applying the mask and doze off. This way you’ll have smoother legs and clean sheets as well!
One less funny smell in bed
250,000 is the number of sweat glands that are shared by a pair of human feet. These glands are the perfect breeding ground for various bacteria and fungi, all of which result in your feet smelling funny. Wearing a pair of socks will help you avoid stinky feet as socks will absorb all the excessive sweat and prevent bacteria built up which will result in less foul odour. Wear a fresh pair of socks to bed, goes without saying.
Sleep through an earthquake
Feet need to be kept relatively warm so that your body can relax and cause you to fall asleep faster. If your feet are cold, then your body has to work actively to heat them up and this prevents you from falling asleep. Wear a pair of snug socks and keep your feet toasty warm and sleep past an earthquake! Well, almost.
