The season of the scorching sun and intolerable heat is here and if there’s something that can help you feel better, it is the comfort of breathable, skin-friendly clothes. Unfortunately, most people prefer to live up to the fashion trends and end up inviting skin problems and allergies for themselves which can be irritable and painful. 

The formaldehyde saps, paints, pastes, compound added substances, and tanning chemicals used in the preparation of the texture or clothing often cause immediate allergic skin reactions. Purchasing garments with natural textures is the most effective way to avoid triclosan and other harmful clothing toxins. This means that hazardous chemicals are excluded during the construction process, ensuring a safe and environmentally friendly finished product for users.

Need of skin friendly clothes: 

Protection of the skin 

The chemicals used in making fabrics can be dangerous for the skin.These are the synthetic substances that may be to blame for extreme sensitivities, constant burning sensation, and redness in unexpected areas. You should ignore the problem when buying environmentally friendly clothing. 

Breathable and comfortable 

Natural textures are often much more pleasant to the skin. It is therefore important to invest in skin-friendly clothing to protect your skin. Extreme cold weather can make our skin itchy and cracked, and a lot of exposure to sun can tan our skin. As a result, we must take steps to protect ourselves from such situations. 

Prevention of allergies 

Skin friendly clothes  absorb moisture, prevent chills, and act as a barrier between the body and inadvertent ingests, bruises, and rough surfaces.Breathable fabrics help in absorbing sweat and evaporating it well.

Easy to maintain

 Skin friendly clothes are always easier to wash and way more sustainable.Nylon, synthetic and polyamides are not recommended for the skin. 

Some of the most skin friendly fabrics include :


Organic cotton is the most widespread material used to make skin friendly clothes. Cotton is a powerhouse of comfort, easy to maintain and does not cause skin problems. It is fully hypoallergenic and will not irritate the skin of anyone who wears clothing made from this material. In any case, when the weather is hot, cotton will not sweat and cause rashes. Cotton helps the skin to breathe and reduces the risk of skin rashes, as well as repelling dust mites, dust, and other common allergens. Ecologists would respect the fact that cotton is biodegradable and solid, even when abused by the soil, rehashed washes, and the atmosphere.


When rested on, silk is comfortable and hypoallergenic, reducing nighttime wheezes. Another benefit of silk is that it retains hydration in your hair, which helps to prevent frizzy and brittle hair.This highly retentive and low-support texture puts in a lot of effort to keep your skin looking amazing by preventing wrinkles and keeping it soft and smooth. Dry-skinned people would love how fresh they’ll feel in the morning after sleeping on silk!


Linen is an excellent moisture absorbent. Light silks also keep allergies at bay.It is resistant to microbial activities and ensures proper ventilation.Linen is the world’s most strongly entrenched regular fabric, and it is clearly tougher than cotton. The strength of the fibre directly contributes to the strength of the quality of the garment. Linen dresses are highly robust in this way.A good cotton shirt will last you a season or two, but a linen dress or top will last you much longer. Linen garments will not lose their shape after washing; in fact, they will become gentler and more appealing to the skin over time.


The texture of bamboo is similar to that of silk. Since the fibers are untreated, they are normally smoother and rounder, with no harsh nudges to irritate the skin, making bamboo fabric hypoallergenic and suitable for those who have unfavorably sensitive reactions to other strands such as fleece.Bamboo is antibacterial and parasite-resistant. This is because bamboo has microorganism antagonists and a bactericidal bio-specialists named “Bamboo Kun,” allowing it to naturally flourish and fill in the environment without the use of pesticides or insecticides. This beneficial quality of the plant is preserved in its solid material, which kills all microscopic species, leaving the person feeling fresher and odor-free for longer, as well as improving and cleaning the garment.

Skin friendly clothes work the best for sensitive skin, undergo less toxic processes and are easy to carry. With sustainable fashion taking over the world, it is any-day more beneficial to switch to fabrics made out of bamboo, soy and hemp. These are not just proven to be the best for your skin but also for the environment with additional benefits like UV resistance.
