Does Sex Benefit the Complexion?

Don't ask me where I came up with this post idea. Ahem. Not surprisingly, there are many health benefits to sex, including a decrease in stress levels, an increase in burned calories, and boosted immunity, to name a few. But, when it comes to its ability to beautify, what can sex do for your looks . . .

  • Heavy z's: When you sleep better, you look better. The oxytocin that's released during an orgasm helps you doze off.
  • Antiaging benefits: Sex increases dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone that is said to help lend a youthful appearance. This includes: shiny hair, brighter eyes, and an enhanced complexion.
  • So long, toxins: A rise in blood circulation during sex helps to eliminate toxins in the body, as oxygen is pumped into the surface of the skin. This provides that nice, clear glow and plumped appearance to the skin.
