4 Ways Orgasms Can Benefit Your Skin

Advertisements

The functions of the body are all interconnected. Yes, even orgasms and skin health. While there’s no direct correlation proven by thorough clinical studies, experts say there’s a link between the hormones released during a climax and better skin.

“There are no clinical studies to prove that orgasm is good for the skin,” says OB/GYN Carolyn DeLucia, MD. “But we can calculate. You see, if A=B and B=C, then A=C.” Because of the myriad benefits that orgasms have for the body (see below), they can essentially have positive effects on the skin as well.

A small survey by plusOne found that “after four weeks of the study, women found that masturbating at least three days a week resulted in improved skin firmness, elasticity and radiance.” After eight weeks, skin showed continued improvement in ” texture and tone as well as reduced sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. The people collectively reported that their skin felt tighter and firmer and looked brighter and firmer.”

Ava Shamban, MD, a dermatologist from Beverly Hills, California, says sexual well-being and vaginal health are closely related. Additionally, both are essential pieces of our overall self-care and skin-care puzzle, as well as our personal happiness. “The overall positive health effects should encourage us all to exercise as much as possible,” jokes Delray Beach, FL dermatologist to Janet Allenby, MD.

according to dr Shamban, maintaining a healthy sex life can help increase the body’s ability to maintain youthful skin. dr Shamban says orgasms can boost blood flow and oxygen, leading to increased cell repair. In addition, “increased blood flow to the skin improves collagen formation,” says Dr. DeLucia. “Endorphins and hormone balance improve skin condition, especially acne, by increasing blood flow.”
