We all know that orgasms can have a positive impact on us, our health, and our wellbeing – but did you also know that they can help your skin? Whether you’re having regular orgasms with your partner, or ensure you spend time ‘going solo’ here are just some of the proven ways that orgasms can give you healthy, glowing skin!
It Moisturises Just Like a Lotion!
When you have sex (or masturbate), your blood flow increases. When this happens, an increased amount of water is transferred to your largest organ, which is your skin. Hydration is a vital part of many people’s skincare routines, from serums to oils and moisturizers. It is an essential step to achieving soft skin and a healthy complexion.
It Can Help Prevent Skin Flare-Ups
If you suffer from psoriasis or acne, these are often associated with stress. When we are stressed, our body can react in many different ways, and our skin tends to pay the price. Low levels of oxytocin in the bloodstream are connected to stress, anxiety, and tension. When you have an orgasm, oxytocin is released, which can help you destress and keep any inflammatory conditions under control.
It Gives You A Visible Glow
Both sex and masturbation increase your heart rate and blood circulation. This is not only great for your health, but it also results in healthier, more vibrant looking skin and plumper lips.
It Can Help Reduce Wrinkles
As sex is a great calorie burner, there’s no surprise that it leaves you feeling sleepy and relaxed once you’re done. This is actually due to the release of prolactin (a sex hormone), which makes you feel super tired after you’ve climaxed. For your skin to regenerate, you need to have a deep sleep. As sex encourages this, wrinkles and fine lines become less noticeable. A hormone called melatonin is also released during a deep slumber, which helps combat saggy skin and sun damage.
