Did you know that our skin is the largest organ in our bodies? It is critical to our overall health and wellness and deserves special care. Recently, more and more people are complaining of skin sensitivities. There are many different factors that can contribute including skin conditions such as eczema, environmental stressors (pollution, climate, etc) and harsh chemicals.
Allergies, rashes and skin conditions can be irritated by fabrics made with wool, synthetic nylon and polyester. In addition, chemicals used in the processing and manufacturing of clothing can irritate skin further.
Bamboo clothing is getting more attention for those who suffer from skin sensitivity. Bamboo is grown without the aid of pesticides or harsh chemicals. This means that there is nothing to interfere with your body’s natural processes – no matter how sensitive or allergic you may be.
Many people report that clothes made from bamboo provide relief from such irritation. The naturally smooth fibers of bamboo fabric lie flat against the skin, limiting itching, skin irritation and sensitivity. Bamboo fabric has a natural sheen and softness that feels and drapes like silk. It is often compared to the softness and luxurious feeling of cashmere.
Heat and perspiration can irritate and inflame sensitive skin, so the natural temperature regulating properties of bamboo are of great benefit. Its high rate of absorbency means that it wicks water away from the body 3-4 times faster than cotton. This means that you’ll stay dryer and more comfortable in hot and humid weather. It also has been proven to inhibit the growth of odour causing bacteria.
An added bonus is that bamboo fabric blocks the sun’s harmful UV rays, giving you an extra layer of protection against today’s intense and potentially damaging sunshine.
Ditch the itch and make the switch to bamboo clothing. Your skin will thank you!
