In addition to improving physical and mental health, sex also has a positive effect on the health of the skin, nails, and hair. In a word, sex improves appearance.
Sex and, in particular, orgasm can lead to an improvement in the state of the body and a decrease in the level of the stress hormone that causes various skin imperfections. It can cause inflammatory processes in the skin and lead to the appearance of rosacea, psoriasis, etc. Pimples and blackheads are also reduced due to orgasm. It is believed that having sex 2-3 times a week can have a positive effect on these skin problems.
A study conducted in 2009 at the University of Michigan showed that orgasm increases the level of estrogen in the body. Estrogen helps prevent skin aging in several ways. First of all, it prevents a decrease in the amount of collagen, an important protein for preserving the youthfulness of the skin and its resistance to wrinkles. Estrogen also retains moisture in the skin, keeping it hydrated and deeply nourished.
Sex also stimulates the movement of blood passing through the body. This means that the face is supplied with oxygen, which stimulates the production of collagen. By improving blood circulation, the skin gets more shine and an even color. By having sex and improving blood circulation, toxins are washed out of the pores.
Sex has other advantages over beauty. Science claims that regular sex makes people happy and smiling, and a smile makes a person younger. A 2016 study confirmed this correlation and found that when people smile, they are perceived to be younger.
Sex also improves the body’s ability to efficiently absorb nutrients. Increasing the number of essential vitamins and minerals is also important for maintaining the health of hair and nails in the long term. Thus, the hair becomes moisturized, nourished, smooth, shiny, and lush, and the nails become stronger and more elastic.
Because of these positive effects that orgasm has on the skin, sex should be regular.
