Looking good has never been this easy and cheap! We'd all be in shock if we calculate the amount we spent on beauty products to enhance our features! Maybe you never bothered to notice that the solution to your beauty worries lie within you. Good, healthy sex with someone you love has lots of health benefits and in the natural way. The care, hugging, stroking and cuddling promote feelings of love, nurture and care. Any expression of love and emotional intimacy encourages natural and inner healing. However, modern science took a little time to come around to the fact that sex is good for mental and physical health.
Sex increases blood circulation:
Sex increases blood circulation, beneficial especially for the brain, due to increased heart rate and deep breathing. As fresh blood supply arrives, your cells and organs are saturated with fresh oxygen and hormones, and as the used blood is removed, you also remove waste products that cause fatigue and even illness.
Sex is more than just about hormonal discharge and momentary pleasure. In fact, sex has much more to it than most of us think and know. Sex is good for adults on a regular basis, at least once a week, is even better. The obvious benefits like it can burn calories, relieve stress and help you fall asleep more easily are there, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. Here some more reasons how making love may help you live a longer, healthy and happier life:
Benefits for skin, Secrete for Natural Glow and control acne:
Sex improves blood circulation which in turn helps to pump oxygen to your skin, thus giving your face a rosy look. Oxytocin is the hormone released during sex which in turn releases endorphins also known feel good hormones. These hormones help in cell regeneration and keeping the skin healthy and glowing. Also, sex increases the blood circulation to skin and give radiant look. Sex reduces the amount of hormones and helps to balance. No we are not saying that you will get rid of your acne overnight, but it does help in preventing and controlling the blemishes that appear.
Hitting menopause can take a tremendous toll on your skin because no matter how many beauty products you use, the quality of your skin will definitely change. Dryness is one of the most common effects of menopause on a woman's skin. Yes, moisturizers are a temporary solution but sex gets the oxygen and blood flowing in your body. Wild and torrid sex can lead to a lot of sweating and remember that's a good thing because you'll save up on getting facials done. The dirt and pores will be cleansed when you sweat. Why not leave the air conditioner and the fan off the next time you have sex, that way you'll start sweating much faster and more.
Instead of getting Botox or any other collagen fillers done in order to make your face appear firmer or spending heaps of money to wave off those age spots, why not have sex instead? Because sex is effective as well, you won't get results at once but the results will be visible over a period of time. While having sex, your body is like a collagen production factory that reduces sagging and age spots.
Sex burn calories and helps in weight loss and overall fitness:
Going to the gym can end up getting monotonous and boring. There aren't too many ways to run on a treadmill are there? Why go through a boring one hour session at the gym, sulking because your legs are aching after yesterday's cardio? That's where sex comes in! Thirty minutes of sex burns 85 calories or more. Sex also boosts production of testosterone, which leads to stronger bones and muscles.
Improve and help in better sleep:
And we all know sleep is essential when it comes to beauty for everyone. Good sleep prevents dark circles and haggard looking skin. According to some researches sleep-related chemicals like oxytocin and vasopressin are released during an orgasm. That explains why we get better sleep after a sex-induced night as compared to a regular night. Enough sleep has been linked with a host of other good things, such as maintaining a healthy weight and blood pressure. Something to think about, especially if you've been wondering why your guy can be active one minute and snoring the next.
Satisfying sexual activity can, of course, be an exhilarating mood lifter. A big health benefit of sex is lower blood pressure and overall stress reduction, according to some researchers those who had intercourse had better responses to stress than those who engaged in other sexual behaviors or abstained. Another study published in the same journal found that frequent intercourse was associated with lower diastolic blood pressure in cohabiting participants. Recent research revealed that people who have more sex reported that they felt more at ease, happier and learned how to handle stress better. During orgasm, there is a surge in oxytocin, which may account for both the stronger emotional connection between partners and tension relief.
Having sex and orgasms increases levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps us bond and build trust. Some researchers evaluated 59 premenopausal women before and after warm contact with their husbands and partners ending with hugs. They found that the more contact, the higher the oxytocin levels.
Good sexual health may mean better physical health. Sexual intercourse once or twice a week has been linked with higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A or IgA, which protect you from getting colds and other infections. During orgasm body releases the hormone DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), which works as an anti-depressant and improves immunity levels in the body. DHEA can repair tissue, improve cognition, keep skin healthy.
Improves Cardiovascular Health:
In a recent study, scientists found the frequency of sex was associated with strokes in the 914 men they followed for 20 years. And the heart health benefits of sex don't end there. The researchers also found that having sex twice or more a week reduced the risk of fatal heart attack by half for the men, compared with those who had sex less than once a month.
Reduces prostate cancer risk:
Prostate gland-related disorders are known to be caused by or worsen as a result of the secretions from the gland. Regular sexual activity eliminates these harmful secretions and also helps protect the gland from cancer. According to researchers, frequent ejaculations, especially in 20-something men, may reduce the risk of prostate cancer later in life.
Immediately before orgasm, the level of the hormone oxytocin rises to five times normal levels. As the hormone oxytocin surges, endorphins increase, and pain declines. So if your headache, arthritis pain, or PMS symptoms seem to improve after sex, you can thank those higher oxytocin levels.
Boosts your Self-Esteem:
Great sex begins with self-esteem, and it raises it. If the sex is loving, connected, and what you want, it raises it. Higher oxytocin has also been linked with a feeling of generosity. So if you're feeling suddenly more generous toward your partner than usual, credit the love hormone.
Strengthens Pelvic Muscles:
For women, doing a few pelvic floor muscle exercises known as Kegels during sex offers a couple of benefits. You will enjoy more pleasure, and you'll also strengthen the area and help to minimize the risk of incontinence later in life.
