The hormone estrogen is pumped out during sex, which can in turn have a plumping effect on the skin, helping to smooth out those fine lines.
This is especially useful following the menopause, when a woman’s skin can become drier and more wrinkled, as estrogen levels naturally drop.
Healthy Glowing Skin
Vigorous sex pumps higher levels of oxygen around the body, increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to the skin, and pushes newer, fresher skin cells to the surface, making skin look healthier.
Reduce Stress and Breakout Less
Stress has major effects on the skin because it causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal.
Have you ever noticed that when you are stressed, you break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, which tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems.
You can partially thank the release of oxytocin during orgasm for the stress-busting effects of sex.
Sex helps people sleep better, again, it’s those powerful oxytocins at work. Getting your beauty sleep is not a myth, I assure you. There are many effects to the skin when you don’t get a good nights sleeps. Some of which include; increased inflammatory cells in the body which can cause breakouts, skin sensitivity, dermatitis, breakdown in collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Sex is a good detox because it makes you sweat. Sweating removes toxins from the body through the skin (the main organ of elimination). Sweat opens up and unclogs pores…Awesome! Careful though, leaving sweat on your body for too long can have an adverse effect, so make sure you hop in that shower after a romp in the hay.
So there you have it. Not only is sex good for your skin, it has many other physical and mental benefits. Now this is a trend worth following! So hop on and enjoy the ride! 😉 If you need a little help getting in the mood, try one of these 20 foods filled with Aphrodisiac properties!
