Glowing From Within: The Big O & Ingestible Beauty
We’ve all heard it before; the secret to glowing skin is making sure your insides are happy. Sure, investing in a skincare routine will work wonders but achieving skin goals requires so much more work than just slapping on a few serums and creams. Think of yourself as a machine, and just like every machine, all parts must work harmoniously for optimal results. Let’s delve deeper into what we need to do to glow from the inside out, and a few things that can help us along the way.
Why Orgasms Are Important
Oh, the smile on my face as I'm typing this. Ladies, you’d be more than thrilled to know that reaching The Big O not only relieves stress but also helps us achieve skin goals. Believe it or not, orgasms actually have anti-ageing benefits, so, if you’re from the era of hot pink Motorola Razrs and Von Dutch truckers, keep reading.
Ok, so what exactly happens when we climax? Essentially, orgasms release a number of hormones, one of which is estrogen; a hormone responsible for preventing collagen and elastin breakdown, helping the skin maintain a youthful appearance. And if you’re still not convinced, a study conducted on 3,500 people found that women who orgasmed three times a week looked 10 years younger than those who only had two orgasms a week *stores away anti-ageing serum, reaches for vibrator*.
Another benefit of the orgasm is that it actually helps with skin conditions like psoriasis, rosacea and eczema. Cortisol is a stress inducing hormone which decreases after an orgasm, and when this hormone is under control, overall inflammation is lowered, meaning skin is looking calmer than ever. Decrease in stress = glowing skin. Sign me up! Click here to learn more about the beauty benefits of the Big O.
How To Reach The Big O
Alright, now that the technical is over, let’s talk about the fun stuff; a little helper which will help you reach the best damn O you’ve ever experienced. If you want to master the art of multiple orgasms (who doesn’t?), this one’s for you. Can I please have a round of applause for the Womanizer Premium? And as she takes the stage, let me tell you a bit about the star of the show. This clitoral stimulator is made with unique technology called Pleasure Air which stimulates the sensitive nerve endings of the clitoris. And let me tell you, using this is literally like seeing colour for the first time. If you’re a sucker for oral sex (no pun intended), you will find it extremely hard to leave your bed on a lazy Sunday morning after spending time with the Womanizer Premium.
After you’ve invested in this baddie, honestly, just break it off with your partner. What’s the point when they can’t get you off like the Womanizer Premium can? But if you’re not prepared to let bae go, this toy doesn’t have to be used solo; it’s also just as great during foreplay. And when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Womanizer Premium’s autopilot mode is here to guarantee an even stronger orgasm, with intensity and stimulation patterns randomly varied for a sensation that’ll take you by surprise every time. For those who like to take control, you can work at your own pace with 12 stimulation levels to explore.
Drink Your Skincare
Ok, close your mouth, screw the lid of your serum back on and put it down; we have ingestible beauty for this. If you’re not familiar with ingestible beauty, think of it as skincare you can consume, rather than apply. Better yet, a magic potion; you drink and a glowing complexion appears. You can only imagine the phenomenal results you’ll experience when you add ingestibles to your existing skincare routine; it's like doubling down on your serums.
Just like any skincare product, ingestible beauty consists of products which target all types of concerns from pigmented to dehydrated skin.
