Want glowing skin? You should have sex

Would you look at that, yet another reason to have sex, as if we needed more reasons. Sex is already something that feels really good, can actually count as exercise, and makes your relationship with your partner better. One thing that sex does that we don’t always notice is it makes our skin look and feel better. It finally makes sense why those

According to a lot of dermatologists, the reason why sex makes us look and feel better is because just like other forms of exercise, sex increases blood flow to the skin, which gives you a brighter complexion. Here are some reasons why you should be having sex more often.

Sex makes your skin glow

As we talked before, the increased blood flow means more oxygen in your system which gives you the more lush, vibrant looking skin.

Orgasms will improve your mood

When you finally reach climax your body releases a bunch of feel-good hormones. These hormones include serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood and gives you the feeling of happiness. The other hormone is DHEA which boosts immunity and has antidepressant effects.

Sex has a positive impact on your hair and skin

According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, when you have an orgasm your body increases the production of estrogen in your body, which will improve the health of your skin and hair. Another thing that estrogen does is make your skin look thicker and more wrinkle resistant.

Surprise, sex makes your breasts bigger

During sex, women’s breasts can increase in size by 25%. These changes can be attributed to, yet again, the increased blood flow during sex coupled with the higher levels of estrogen. Estrogen is actually linked with the growth of the breast tissue.

Sex will reduce your stress levels

Large amounts of oxytocin are released during orgasm. Oxytocin clears cortisol, which is the main stress hormone. In urban life, most of us have high levels of cortisol. A lot of sex will loosen your forehead and put you in a happy state.

You can finally get rid of that belly

The increase in cortisol in the system can contribute to the “tingling” of the abdomen. Likewise, our friend oxytocin lowers cortisol. Then the last 5 to 10 pounds of weight, you can’t seem to lose in the abdomen? Just orgasm and they will be gone.
