The connection between sex and skincare is a subject that has been studied extensively, but not always in ways that are helpful. We've all seen those articles about how having sex keeps you young, but when it comes down to it, they're more like clickbait than science. So today I'm going to break down the real relationship between sex and your skin's health. Turns out there's more than one way for these two things to affect each other:
If you want to take better care of your skin, you need to take care of your body and mind first.
When I was in my twenties, I was stressed out all the time. This led me to have a hard time sleeping and eating well, which meant my body wasn't getting enough nutrients or rest. As a result, my skin suffered from breakouts and eczema flare-ups (which are linked with stress). If this sounds familiar to you then it's probably time for some lifestyle changes!
Whether it's taking up meditation or starting an exercise routine--the key is finding something that works for YOU--but whatever it is: do not underestimate the power of self-care!
One big part of our mental health is the way that we can manage stress. As much as I speak about this so much, I still have to reiterate how important orgasms are for the skin and how much stress relief they can offer.
Not only orgasms though, the relationships that we have with ourselves and others has a huge impact on our skin as this related to our happiness and stress levels.
Orgasms and your skin
Your skin is a delicate organ, and it needs to be treated with care. That's why I recommend that you have orgasms as often as possible.
Orgasms are great for your skin because they releases oxytocin, which improves circulation and makes your skin look younger. Oxytocin also increases elastin production--a protein found in the dermis layer of your epidermis--which helps keep wrinkles at bay by making them less noticeable over time. This can be especially helpful if you're someone who tends to get nervous or stressed out easily: The more stressed out you are, the more likely your face will show signs of aging.
Finally, oxytocin hydrates our skin while reducing inflammation caused by dryness or irritation--which means less redness on those blemishes!
And since stress levels tend to go up during winter months when temperatures are cooler outside, I recommend having an orgasm regularly until spring arrives!
Sex and the whole relationship thing have a lot to do with your skin.
Sex and relationships are all related. You may think that sex is just a fun way to spend time with your partner, but it actually has a lot to do with your skin health. Sex releases hormones that help keep your body young and healthy, so if you're having enough of it (and the right kind), it can be good for your skin!
Relationships are also important for our physical health--they give us someone who understands us and supports us through thick or thin. If you're in a happy relationship with someone who cares about you deeply, then they'll probably notice when something's wrong with their lover's face or body as well as any other changes they might see happening over time.
Sex, relationships and skincare are related in many ways!
The way you have sex and the relationships you have with others can affect your skin health in a number of ways.
Sex is good for your skin because it releases endorphins that make people feel happy and relaxed. And when we're happy and relaxed, we tend to take better care of ourselves--which includes taking time out for skincare products like moisturisers or masks (or even just washing our faces more regularly).
But wait! There's more! Not only does good sex make us look better on the outside; it also helps us look younger from within too. According to research conducted by Dr Richard A Berson at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA., having an active love life keeps your cells young--and thus prevents them from aging prematurely!
Your skin is affected by emotional intimacy as well as physical intimacy.
Emotional intimacy is just as important as physical intimacy. In fact, it's often what keeps your skin healthy and glowing. Emotional intimacy can improve your skin health by improving your mental health, which in turn reduces stress on the body. When you're stressed out or depressed, you'll often find that your face breaks out because of how much cortisol (the stress hormone) is being produced by the body.
What emotional intimacy can do for your skin.
If you're looking for a way to improve your skin's elasticity, circulation and stress levels, here's an idea: Have sex.
It might sound like a joke, but there is actually some science behind it. And we're not talking about just any kind of sex--we mean emotional intimacy (aka making love) that involves kissing and cuddling. Studies have shown that this type of physical contact can make us happier by releasing endorphins in our brains (the same ones released during exercise), which can help reduce stress levels as well as boost serotonin levels in our bodies -- both things that make for glowing skin!
In addition to improving happiness levels through increased endorphin production, regular intimate encounters also encourage deeper sleep patterns because they give couples time alone together after long days at work or school where they may otherwise be too busy with other obligations like kids' homework assignments or household chores."
Stress is one of our biggest enemies when it comes to skin health.
It's no secret that stress can cause acne and breakouts, but it also ages your skin faster and makes you look dull and lifeless. Stress can even lead to eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and dermatitis (a condition that causes redness, itching and flaking).
When you're under pressure from work or simply trying to juggle too many things at once, your body releases cortisol--the hormone responsible for regulating energy levels throughout the day. High levels of cortisol can cause inflammation in the body which leads to breakouts on the face as well as other parts of the body such as chest or back areas where there aren't any visible signs yet!
Keeping your stress levels low can improve your skin's elasticity and circulation.
Stress can cause a lot of skin problems. It can make acne worse, cause your wrinkles to appear faster and more severe, and it may even accelerate the aging process in general--not just on your face but also on other parts of your body.
Stress can also lead to dryness or oiliness in certain areas; redness or blotchiness; pale skin tone (usually around the eyes).
Having a good relationship with your significant other can help with stress relief
Studies show that being in an intimate relationship helps reduce levels of cortisol (the hormone associated with stress) in both men and women because they feel less anxious when they have someone they trust to confide in or lean on during difficult times. Other studies have even found that couples who share similar interests tend to experience fewer negative emotions than those who don't share anything in common; this could be because sharing common interests allows people from different backgrounds or cultures learn more about each other while also strengthening their bond as friends/lovers/etcetera!
But what if I'm not in a relationship?
No problem at all! You don't need to be in a relationship to have regular orgasms or great, emotional relationships. Spend some time with yourself, get to know your body and what you like. Be kind to yourself and work on building a healthy relationship with your own body.
We can still spend time offering self-care to ourselves, loving and accepting ourselves while working on our relationships with friends, family and loved ones.
So, if you want to take better care of your skin, then do yourself a favor and invest time in your relationship with your partner or just yourself. Remember, one of the best methods for stress relief is from an orgasm so what are you waiting for?!?!
