Healthy travelling clothing

Begonia Slipper 2 - Designer Plus Size Clothing - Habibe LondonIt is advisable to wear loose-fitting clothes with long trousers and long tunics and sleeves in the evenings.

When travelling in areas with malaria it is advisable to wear loose-fitting clothes with long trousers and long tunics and sleeves in the evenings. Travellers to areas with a risk of dengue fever infection should cover up during the day if possible, as the Aedes spp. mosquitoes that transmit dengue fever bite during the day.

In tick-infested areas, trousers should be tucked into socks to prevent ticks from crawling up the legs. Avoid dark blue clothing when travelling in Africa in areas where tsetse flies exist.

Clothing can be treated with an insecticide (e.g. permethrin), which kills insects, including ticks, on contact. Permethrin is available in formulations designed to be sprayed on to clothing.

Health problems from wearing too tight clothes

Azelea Thunder 5 - Designer Plus Size Clothing - Habibe LondonPeople alike, have been wearing tight clothing for centuries.  Regardless of the fact that habitually, too tight clothing  wearing might also be putting your health at risk.  Here are some documented health problems from wearing clothes that are too tight;

Although occasionally enduring, individuals who wear too tight clothing can experience nerve problems called meralgia paresthetica. When women’s pubic areas are kept tightly under wraps, the area becomes very warm and moist.  This makes it a breeding ground for bacteria and, as a result, can cause yeast infections.  Especially in the summer, avoid wearing tight pants.  Wear cotton or linen loose fitting dresses.

Tight pressure against your stomach can increase abdominal pressure, causing acid to go back into your esophagus, resulting in heart burn and acid reflux. (Source:http://sheerbalance.com/health-problems-from-wearing-clothes-too-tigh)

The Esophagus is the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when a muscle at the end of your esophagus does not close properly. This allows stomach contents to leak back, or reflux, into the esophagus and irritate it. Read More

Wearing Loose Fitting Clothes is Healthy

Artichoke Dragon 1 - Designer Plus Size Clothing - Habibe LondonLoose fitting clothing is more comfortable and stylish. If you have skin problems, you might need to take further care when selecting clothing. Skin problems can be caused by conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, deprived circulation, reduced sensation, or allergies to certain chemicals.

All kind of detergent can also irritate sensitive skin, so make a note of which brands or types have caused a reaction in the past. Numerous producers make neutral or hypo-allergenic powders and detergents, however this does not always mean they will not cause a reaction. (The National Eczema Society, 2008)

If you have sensitive skin or a skin condition, you may know what types of materials work best for you. Commonly, natural fibres like cotton, linen and silk will feel soft and smooth against your skin.

Fabrics that are flexible and spring when you move are often more comfortable than harder fabrics, especially if you sit for long periods. Some textile dyes can cause allergies. In the dyeing process the dyes bind to the fibres, and sometimes excess colour can be released and come into contact with skin. Some clothing manufacturers are now using 100% organic, unbleached cotton and silk, linen with natural dyes, which may be more suitable if you have an allergy to textile dyes.
