Before I start, for all of you who have been smirking and chuckling to yourselves about me talking about 'self-love' month (you know who you are!) this one is for you!
I've wanted to talk about this for a while now and what better time to write this post than in Valentine's week.
This is totally from a skincare point of view of course, but regular sex can really help improve our skin, hair and even nails! So, what are you waiting for?? This is anti-aging at it's best... forget those lotions and potions for your face and practice some 'self-love' this weekend - yes, that kind! ;o)
(Apologies in advance for the innuendo, I just couldn't resist! ha ha!)
10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ORGASM EVERY DAY...
1 - SEX IMPROVES THE CIRCULATION IN THE BODY
I ramble on enough about how massage can help boost your circulation. Well a boosted circulation will help your skin glow and give you a radiance. We all know about the best selling Nars 'orgasm' blusher. Well, now you can re-create it yourself, the natural way!
2 - IT CAN CLEAR UP BREAKOUTS
Sex can help to regulate your hormones. For those of you suffering from hormonal breakouts due to an imbalance, this could actually help to clear your skin.
3 - COLLAGEN BOOSTING
What do we want to keep our skin looking youthful and plump? Collagen! Well, sex has been shown to actually boost collagen production. This is natures best anti-aging method.
4 - CLEARS PORES
Getting a bit hot and heavy? Perfect! Sweating is our body's natural way to clean the skin and it can help loosen trapped dirt and grime from our pores. (Just make sure if you are having a few breakouts, always cleanse your face after sweating - especially in the gym too)
5 - STRESS RELIEF
One of the biggest causes of breakouts can be stress. The cortisol that our body produces when we get stressed can affect our hormones, which in turn has a knock on effect to our oil production. This then can lead to breakouts. Sex is a well known way of relieving stress and clearing the mind. So maybe skip that yoga practice and instead let's get 'down dog' ha ha!
6 - SEX CAN IMPROVE YOUR HAIR, SKIN & NAILS
Sex can actually improve the way our bodies metabolize nutrients. When we absorb them better, our skin, hair and nails will be stronger and healthier.
7 - IT PLUMPS YOUR LIPS UP
Ok, so this might only be temporarily, but the increase in blood flow from the heightened heart rate can boost your pout.
8 - YOU WILL SLEEP BETTER
For those of you struggling to sleep, why not 'self-love' your way to snoozetown. Having an orgasm releases the 'feel-good' hormone oxytocin. This is a great pain killer (that's why sex is the best thing for a headache), it's also the reason why we can feel sleepy after sex.
9 - IT CAN FIGHT OFF COLD & FLU INFECTIONS
Sex can actually help boost your immune system believe it or not. It increases our levels of immunoglobulin which is an antibody to fight of cold and flu infections. Just try not to pass on your cold whilst trying to boost your immunity!
10 - IT BURNS CALORIES
Finally, we can actually burn off on average 170 calories per hour having sex. It's like an actual workout and you don't even have to leave your bed!
So there you have it. Better skin, hair, nails, immune boosting, stress relieving, calorie burning and immune boosting.
Make it a regular part of your skincare routine and try making time for a daily 'O' to give you that youthful glow we all want!
