I know gym outfit looks cute, but don’t be tempted to run errands all day wearing sweaty gym clothes.
Here are 7 reasons why you should change clothes right after working out.
1. Saddle Sores
Spin instructor, Shannon H., was confused when her backside started to hurt and burn after her workouts. She was used to bike seats and the only solution she could come up with was to spend more time wearing her padded bike shorts. Unfortunately, this didn’t help at all and she developed saddle sores. They were so extreme that she had to seek medical attention. In fact, they had to be lanced and packed with gauze until they healed! She now wears normal wicking workout bottoms which Sheryl Ross, M.D., an ob-gyn and women’s health expert in Santa Monica, CA., says is the right thing to do. Wearing the same type of tight-fitting fabric every day doesn’t give the bum a break and the thickness of the fabric holds moisture and bacteria, making it impossible for wounds to heal.
