It goes without saying that having an orgasm feels great, but did you know that masturbation is also good for your skin? Incorporate it into your daily skincare routine and you will begin to see the many benefits an orgasm can bring to your life. Read on for some great tips to have clear skin.
O is for Orgasm and Oxygen
When we climax the blood vessels dilate, causing a rush of blood throughout the system. Blood carries oxygen, which in turn increases collagen production, which as we all know is what plumps up the skin and reduces wrinkles. That beauty product you pay a fortune for? You have a natural supply of your own!
Help Yourself to Less Stress (and Clearer Skin)
Sex, whether it is with someone else or alone, is one of the best ways to achieve stress relief. Lowered stress levels mean less inflammation in the body, and as inflammation can cause conditions such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and acne, reducing that inflammation can also reduce those symptoms.
Glow it Alone
Have you ever looked in the mirror after you’ve had sex, or masturbated? If you haven’t, you should – you will look glowing! Masturbation is a great beauty hack. Years ago women used to lightly slap their face to get some color on their cheeks – a much more pleasant way to get the blood flowing is to orgasm. Do it right before a date, or even slip into the ladies’ room during dinner to achieve the look and return to the table with a flushed face and a sparkle in your eye!
In Pain? Come Again.
Pain can be ageing. But during an orgasm, the body releases oxytocin, a chemical known for its pain-relieving properties. While sex might be the last thing on your mind when you’re suffering from period pain or a headache, it is well worth making the effort to find the time to masturbate and literally stroke those pains away. No pain equals no frown lines.
Get Yourself to Sleep
We all know that a good night’s sleep is a great way to keep yourself looking young, but sometimes it’s not that easy to drop off. Guess what? Climaxing prompts the body to release endorphins and oxytocin, both of which create that lovely, relaxed feeling which helps you to drift off to sleep in a haze of post-orgasmic pleasure.
What better way could there be to look great, feel fab, and really get to know your own body?
