Is Sex Good For Your Skin?
SEX & SKIN: Why A Healthy Sex Life Means Glowing, Clear Skin
Joanna Vargas, renowned celebrity facialist
and founder of an eponymous skincare line, believes that a good workout means more beautiful skin. "Regular exercise is what drives your lymphatic system," she said. "Your lymphatic system brings nutrients and carries away waste from every cell in the body. It doesn't have its own pump, so the lymphatic system needs us to exercise in order to work. A bad lymphatic system will cause acne, breakouts, even full, dry skin."
So an extra "workout" on a regular basis can mean a clearer, healthier, more glowing visage. "Increased circulation in skin means that nutrients are reaching the cells as well as oxygen, which is directly related to how good your skin looks," Vargas said.
Surely we all know the story of François Nars' iconic "Orgasm" blush, which—as beauty lore goes—is similar to the color in a woman's cheeks after climax. (Really, Nars wanted something a bit "audacious", so he named the product accordingly.) But maybe there's something to it: A certain glow, a healthy complexion, and flushed, rosy cheeks...
"It's happy skin!" exclaimed Dr. Lens simply.
