Ever noticed how when you’re in a happy relationship and having good sex people say you’re glowing? Dr Amy Wechsler supports this, saying sex improves your blood circulation and boosts your immune system.

Targets acne

With age comes a lot of skin issues, acne included, and getting rid of it can be a challenge. Sex helps balance the hormone levels so if you struggle with hormonal acne, sex can beyour magical solution.

Reduces stress

Having stress can result in you looking dull and old even when you’re not. Oxytocion is a feel good chemical that gets released in the brain during sex, leaving you stress-free and radiant.

It makes you sleep better

Good sex equals orgasms right? Experts agree that orgasms result in the release of prolactin in the body, which helps in making you sleep better at night. When you sleep well you look even better in the morning.

It engages your muscles

At the end of it all, sex requires effort that puts your muscles at work. Dr Week says sex increases the release of human growth hormones which are amazing for bulding muscle mass.
