Materials and If They're Good for You


I don't know about you but I am really sensitive to the material of my clothes, I can't spend a minute wearing something that's not soft and comfy and good for my skin. WorCare's professional now collected the most common fabrics and how they affect your skin and how you feel.


Polyester

Synthetic materials support the birth of fungal infections, as your skin can hardly breathe under them. Unfortunately these clothes and wearing them are hard to ignore, since they are made very comfortable, pretty and flattering these days. Especially synthetic panties and socks can be dangerous, as these pieces stick to your body extremely tight, furthermore you wear them on parts of your body which don't really get enough air anyway. Dark color underwear can also cause allergies and eczema. For the producing of these pieces, manufacturers use a lot more paint than usual which don't stick to the fabric entirely, so as you wear the pieces, the paint gets in touch with your body, causing unpleasant reactions. 
Synthetic clothes are also responsible for body odor, athlete's foot.
Choose natural fabrics, cotton, linen!


Wool

Its most notable characteristic is its thermo-equalizing effect, which ensures your body to always be heated comfortably still enables the vaporization of body. For those who easily get a cold it's very important. Also, there's lanoline in wool which makes the fabric skin-friendly and a pleasure to touch. No wonder even premature babies are wrapped in wool blankets. Molds and bacteria easily infect wool. Its most dangerous pests are moths. 


Silk

Its sedative and healing effect in case of skin infections has been known for thousands of years. The special pieces of clothing and bed linens made out of it are used successfully in treating eczema, allergic skin problems, burns, fungus. Deodorants, perfumes can cause the color alternation of the fabric. 
The sedative and nourishing effects of silk are so noticeable that people who only wear silk for years have significantly firmer, sifter and healthier skin then others of the same age and sex. This perception lead to the improvement of the production of silk-based cosmetics. 


Leather

Wearing genuine leather and fur is not recommended because of the protection of animals. Pieces made of leather require careful wearing. Leather clothes are not waterproof, one has to protect it from raining and strong sunshine. In case of wearing it can easily get greasy and worn. Scratches and scars on it last for ever. Wearing leather in cold weather is recommended as leather keeps you very warm. 

What do you think? Is it important for you if the material is healthy and comfortable or only the looks is important?
