Why Having Sex Helps Your Skin Look Great

How Sex Benefits Our Skin

Sex makes us feel great, but did you know that having regular sex also makes your skin look great? Many people talk about a post-sex glow to their skin, but regular sexual activity does so much more for our skin than just give us a radiant glow.  Read below to find out all the wonderful things sex can do for your skin.

Sex Makes Your Skin Radiant

Sex increases both your blood circulation and heart rate which is what contributes to that post sex glow on our skin.

As our blood vessels dilate oxygen circulation increases throughout the body which means your skin will look brighter and more radiant.  Sex is of course a form of physical activity and any kind of exercise will help increase oxygen circulation to the skin which makes your skin look great.

Sex Helps Stop Skin Aging

During sex the anti-inflammatory molecules oxytocin and beta endrophins are released.

These molecules can protect our skin from aging by repairing damage done to our skin from factors such as too much sun exposure or poor lifestyle choices such as smoking, to name a few.  A British study even found that regular sexual activity can make you look five to seven years younger.  While the amount of time regular sexual activity can turn back the clock can be debated it is clear that sex will definitely help you look and feel younger. 

Sex Can Help Improve Your Acne

Acne occurs because of a number of factors and can be made worse by certain lifestyle factors such as stress and lack of sleep.  Having sex regularly can help improve acne because sex reduces stress and helps you sleep better.

Also the anti-inflammatory molecules that are released during sex, as described above, can help to clear up acne since acne is an inflammatory skin disease. Oxytocin released during sex can help cortisol levels go down.  High cortisol levels can contribute to breakouts.  Of course never substitute sex for a great home skin care routine if you have acne but don't rule out its contribution to improving your complexion.

Sex Can Prevent Dry Skin

One way for our skin to look dewy and fresh is for it to be well moisturized.  While sex is not a substitute for using a well formulated moisturizer daily regular sexual activity can increase estrogen levels which in turn stop dryness and improve skin elasticity. Increased blood flow to your skin during sex can help ramp up moisture in the skin. 

Sex Can Help Us Sleep

Beauty sleep is far from a myth.  In order for our skin to look its best we really do need to get enough sleep.  Think about new parents and how they look.  New parents have dark under eye circles and dull skin from lack of sleep and lack of time to properly care for their skin.  Once you get enough sleep your skin begins to glow and can function properly including repair itself as needed.  Oxytocin and prolactin released during sex help contribute to better sleep. Once you sleep better your skin will look better.  No more dark under eye circles and dull skin.
Bottom Line

Regular sexual activity only does great things for your skin.  Regular sex is anti-aging, anti-acne, promotes sleep, reduces stress, helps prevent dry skin, and gives you a fabulous glow.  Need any more reasons to enjoy yourself tonight?  Your skin will thank you.
