An orgasm a day keeps the dermat away! Well, it is a lot easier and fun way than that apple thing, TBH. Anyway, it is true. Turns out, your steamy bedroom sessions can do more than just relax your mind, bring you closer to your bae and giving you a good night’s sleep. It can improve your skin like nothing else in the world.
Now that we have piqued your interest, let’s get to it further. Here are 5 ways sex is f**king good for your skin...
A blushing glow
No, your mirror isn’t lying! You are, in fact, glowing after that quickie you just had with your partner. Basically, sex regulates blood circulation, which makes your skin radiant.
Resets the clock
Did you know the more sex you have, the more youthful you look. The release of chock full of endorphins or ‘happy hormones’ during sex are to be thanked for this. It boosts collagen, which wards off wrinkles, age spots and sagging. A great way to look and feel younger, indeed!
Oxytocin, the love hormone, increases during sex which regulates blood supply and pumps oxygen which gives you blemish free, spotless skin. Also, the release of prolactin and estrogen help prevent period acne and flare-ups.
Sex is a great exercise and sweating in the process clears out clogged pores. As things get hot and heavy, the sweat helps removes oil, dirt and toxins from skin. So, if hitting the gym isn’t possible any day, take a little extra time in the bed instead.
We aren’t saying regular sex can replace your moisturisers and water, but it can do the trick to some extent. Constant blood regulation and oxygen flowing, your skin doesn’t get dry and feels hydrated. You could say that an hour of lovemaking is equivalent to an hour of facial at a salon.
