The benefits of sex for your skin

Getting down and dirty can also make you more beautiful

Sex keeps skin young and healthy

Sex increases blood circulation, which helps pump oxygen to our skin resulting in a brighter appearance. Hence: that after-sex glow. Regular sexual engagement has prolonged effects in this regard and can actually make us look younger.

Sex makes your nails stronger

The same hormones that are released to make your skin glow will also keep your nails strong, especially during pregnancy.

Sex makes hair shine

Hormones not only control our sex drive, but they affect the way our hair looks.

Research has shown that a satisfying sex life results in healthy, lush hair due to the body's increased ability to receive and metabolize nutrients efficiently.

Hydrates skin

Now for the real-life science, sex improves circulation, gives the body the moisture it needs to stay healthy which means no more dry skin.

Furthermore, having sweaty sex is like a facial for your skin, as sweat expels excess dirt from our pores.

It wards off aging

Getting busy could set your clock back a few years as far as your appearance is concerned.

Sex boosts our natural collagen production, which fights off off age spots and sagging which means, the more wrinkles in the bed, the fewer wrinkles on your face!
