How Often Should You Replace Your Underwear?

Photo Credit :

As women, we regularly shop for fashion items and cosmetics. We think about buying a beautiful dress almost immediately we see it. And thanks to social media apps like Instagram, these things are always in our faces. So we’re always just a DM away from owning the latest fashion item. But when it comes to underwear, it’s an entirely different situation.
First off, bras and pants aren’t as aggressively advertised as clothes and accessories. Secondly, probably because we’re mostly the only ones who see our underwear, replacing them doesn’t seem so important, unlike our clothes and accessories that other people can see and admire.

But how often should you replace your underwear?
Bras and pants don’t necessarily have a shelf life or expiry date. And while you can wear your bras for as long as you want if there are no physical issues,  it might be better to replace them every six months to get the best out of them in terms of fit and lift.

While with pants, for hygienic reasons it’s safe to replace them every year.

How often should you replace your underwear

This is because washing your pants isn’t enough to get rid of all the bacteria on it. There are certain bacteria that can survive being washed. Even if you’re washing with hot water and hanging in the sun to dry. So to reduce the risk of getting infections, you might want to rethink how long you keep them.

How long your pants last will also depend on its fabric and quality. Cotton generally will last longer than lace and other fabrics. For obvious signs that it’s time to replace your underwear, look at the stretch, fit and aesthetic. If it begins to sag, not sit on your waist as well as it used to, or have holes in it, then it’s time to replace it. Also, if you’ll be ashamed to *coughs* let anyone see you naked in it, toss it!

Speaking of bras though, we know they can be uncomfortable sometimes. These tips will help you go braless with no issues.

3 Oils That Give You Longer Lashes In 3 Weeks

Longer lashes? For real? Is that even possible? You would be answering that yourself in a couple of weeks if you make good use of these Oils.

Coconut oil

Of course, you saw that coming. Coconut oil being a staple in health and beauty is no longer news. From the hair on our head to our skin and our lips we have learnt over time, the many benefits that come from using coconut oil. Well, we are thrilled that these benefits extend to our eyelashes too! Studies have shown that coconut oil contains fatty acids, mainly Lauric acid which is advantageous because of the easy absorption by the hair shaft. It protects the hair from protein loss and damage and visibly increases eyelash growth.

Olive oil

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, K, chlorophyll and carotenoids. It is very good for eyelash growth. Continuous application over a period of time will help your eyelashes double in thickness and length. Results are even more visible when slices of lemon are soaked in the olive oil before application.

Castor oil

This oil contains acids and antioxidants which boost blood circulation and nourish the hair follicles promoting healthy and full eyelash growth. It even moisturizes the skin around your eyes and helps prevent the development of crow’s feet or wrinkles. So you not only get longer lashes but healthier eyes.

How To Use:
It is best to apply oils on your eyelashes at bedtime. To apply, find a clean roller ball or mascara wand. This reduces the risk of contamination that could be caused by touching and applying the oil with your fingers.

Next, apply any of the oils mentioned above to your lashes in upward strokes. Blot out excess oil with a clean cloth or wipes. Apply enough oil to make your lashes feel moisturized but ensure that oil does not drip into your eyes.

Again, do this right before going to bed.
