Winter Health Tips: Winter season is going on. We all are using quilts and blankets. Some people like to sleep with their face covered in quilt but they are prohibited from doing so, because it can cause serious harm. Sleeping with your face covered in a quilt or blanket can cause suffocation and blood circulation can be affected. This is because when our mouth is covered, the body does not get fresh oxygen and only bad oxygen keeps going inside the body. At the same time, sleeping with the mouth covered also affects metabolism. Let us know its disadvantages…
Why you should not sleep with your mouth covered
1. Lungs may be damaged
By sleeping with the mouth covered, the right amount of fresh oxygen does not reach the body. This has a bad effect on the lungs and can lead to dangerous situations like suffocation or heart attack. In many cases, the lungs even appear to shrink. Therefore, it is forbidden to sleep with the mouth covered in winter.
2. Skin problems may increase
According to health experts, sleeping with your mouth covered in winter can cause many skin related problems. Bad air present inside the quilt or blanket can darken the skin. This can also cause skin rashes. In most of the cases, people are not aware that this is happening because of sleeping with their mouth covered. Therefore this habit should be changed immediately.
Who is most at risk?
According to health experts, people who have asthma, COPD or any other respiratory disease should not sleep with their mouth covered even by mistake. It can also be fatal for such people. The lungs of patients suffering from asthma or these other diseases become weak, in such a situation they are not able to get the right amount of oxygen by covering their mouth. In such a situation, an asthma attack or shortness of breath may occur. Therefore such patients should never sleep with their mouth covered.
