Sex is an enjoyable, healthy part of consenting adult relationships—and it’s been shown to benefit your overall health by lowering stress, improving sleeping habits, and boosting your immune system. But did you know that it can also make your skin glow?
Refinery29’s Maria Del Russo wanted to test the theory that orgasming can improve skin tone and texture and make you look younger. Here’s her story.
For 30 days, Maria would attempt to orgasm daily and take note of any improvements in her appearance.
Can a month of daily orgasms give you great skin?
Maria set the rules for her own personal study: for 30 days, she would do her best to orgasm daily and take note of any improvements in her appearance. Little did she know that her journey would not only improve her skin, but also benefit her physical and mental wellbeing too.
Within just a few weeks, Del Russo noticed a brightening of the skin, less acne, and better sleep—and she wasn’t the only one who noticed. Her friends, co-workers, and partner all commented on her changing skin.
By the end of 35 days, she came to realization that taking time for yourself is crucial to your health (and reaching orgasm is one great way to do that!).
So, how does sex improve skin tone? During sexual activity, the blood vessels dilate, causing oxygen to flood the body. That boosts collagen in your skin, helping to improve appearance, firmness, and health. Orgasming also releases hormones that help reduce stress and result in improved sleep, all of which are great for your skin.
A better sex life only goes so far
It’s not only sex that improved the authors skin; by taking time to take care of herself, Del Russo improved her overall health and stress management, positively impacting the health and beauty of her skin.
It’s also important to note that this is just one person’s experience—pleasurable sexual experiences, low stress, and a healthy lifestyle aren’t always enough to combat skin issues. If you’re battling breakouts, concerned with signs of aging, or hoping to refresh your look, professional skin treatments administered by an experienced plastic surgeon or medical aesthetician can help calm issues and nourish your skin.
