Why You Should Never Stay in a Wet Bathing Suit

Summertime means barbecues beaches and bathing suits, and no one understands that sentiment quite like the Kardashian/Jenner clan.

However, there's something very wrong in one of the photos of Kylie Jenner that she posted to her Instagram account: nobody should never, ever stay in a wet bathing suit.


It's the perfect place for bacteria buildup and can lead to yeast infections, urinary tract infections or even result in an itchy rash.

The best thing to do after taking a dip in the pool if you're not going to dry off quickly in the sun is to change into a fresh suit.

This rule doesn't just apply poolside, since the same goes for an intense workout.

Make getting out of those sweaty clothes as quickly as possible part of your post-workout regimen.

Health experts warn that women with weakened immune systems, those with diabetes or who take certain medications are more likely to be affected by extended wear of a wet swimsuit.

When swimming in the ocean or pool, swimsuit material absorbs various chemicals and bacteria.

Those germs cling to your private parts with the help of a wet bathing suit and can lead to urinary tract infections.

Yeast infections are also common because yeast thrives in warm, wet environments.

So again, "do it for the 'gram", and once that picture is posted, be sure to change clothes before you watch the likes pour in.
