The big O also has plenty of important benefits for the body, especially on your skin.
That difficult glow you’ve been chasing after, you might see it in your reflection the next time you reach climax.
Ever find that having an orgasm calms you down? You’re not alone. In fact, getting it on can actually help skin maintain itself.
In addition, there’s a strong correlation between lack of sleep and acne, so doctors recommend sleeping for a full eight hours in order to allow skin to perform the maintenance necessary for glowing skin. The immune system and inflammation heals itself during deep, long sleep stretches, too. So take advantage of that urge to roll over and fall asleep right after you climax.
Also, a 2009 study at the University of Michigan found out that having an orgasm raises the levels of estrogen in your body. And that’s good… why? Because estrogen actually appears to aid in the prevention of aging skin in a number of ways.
You can also get your glow on. If you’re wondering where exactly that post-sex glow comes from, we’ve got the goods. During sex, there’s an increase in the rate of blood flowing through your body, meaning more of those blood cells carrying oxygen can reach your face. When your blood vessels start to dilate, you get that rosy flushed look, and an increased amount of oxygen stimulates collagen production.
