There’s more to kissing than meets the eye! Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching is good for your teeth, helps circulation, fend off viruses and can improve our skin. Here’s how…
1. Feel happy
When we kiss, our bodies release feel good chemicals. Endorphins are the natural opiates of the body and gives you a natural high and that special glow.
2. Helps us look better
When we kiss, especially passionately, we give our facial muscles a work out. A tongue-tangling French kiss is a great workout which enlists an army of about 30 facial muscles. You’ll not only feel loved and happier, your cheeks might actually look perkier and more youthful too!
3. Can relieve stress
Kissing can reduce tension and anxiety because it can lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol and increase levels of the feel-good hormone oxytocin.
Stress can aggravate the skin and trigger unexpected flare-ups, and it is not just acne, stress can also cause eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. Stress and worry also cause frowning, and over time the muscles in the face actually conform to that movement causing wrinkles.
