In 2021, the podcast The Trend Reporter reported that there are two big wellness trends that have been garnering attention — sex and skincare.
While we at Smile Makers think that sex should always be on-trend, we can’t help but love that the world seems to finally be wakening up to what we already knew, sexual pleasure is good for our wellbeing. It feels like we’re in the midst of a self-pleasure revolution, and we’re here at the front ready and waiting to hand you a placard. SEX IS HERE TO STAY.
The other big trend of the year? Skincare. So, we thought we’d put the two together and answer a question that comes back time and time again – can orgasms really give us better skin?
Well, firstly, let’s consider more than just orgasms! We all know that climaxing isn’t the be-all and end-all of pleasure for us vulva owners; the journey feels just as good, right?
Secondly, what if we also consider sexcare in the same way that we do skincare? Searching for the right tools, building the perfect routine, and making time for it – be it every morning and every night, or the one weekend pamper session we all look forward to.
When it really comes down to it, after all our research, it’s very much this routine – or practice – of making time for self-loving that truly contributes to better skin. The regularity of taking a break to focus on ourselves creates a domino effect of positive consequences. The more we work on our wellness, the more effective results we see. The less stressed we are, the happier our skin can be.
‘It’s like 15 minutes of just sheer bliss. And, I’ve seen how other people respond to that and, I’m like, is it because the products are working or is it because I’m having a moment of positivity with my own face?’
As we nodded along, we felt inspired – well yeah, we thought, this makes complete sense! Take this idea and put it to our question… do orgasms improve our skin? The end product doesn’t directly impact it per se, but the fact we are having regular moments of pleasure and positivity with ourselves and our bodies does.
