The whole truth about the connection of sex and acne

Does it help to have sex from acne?

love From a medical point of view, any hormonal failure entails a number of problems - from the general state of health and the disturbed state of work of the internal organs to the expressed cosmetological skin defects (acne, boils, etc.). As is known, at the moment of adolescent maturation, this problem is especially aggravated. At the young age , the biggest hormonal "shake-up" occurs, when the body begins to produce a huge amount of androgens. And there is a problem: acne, pustules, acne literally attack the skin of a young boy or girl. Any means and procedures here are powerless, except as an antiseptic action, so as not to infect tissues in the lesions. The problem is resolved only after reaching the final stage of puberty or until the first sexual intercourse.

With adolescents more or less clear, but can there be acne from a lack of sex and hormonal disorders in an adult and a person formed? The problem of acne in men is not a rare case in dermatological practice. If a man has a long abstinence, against this background, the balance of such hormones as:

  • Prolactin
  • Serotonin
  • Glycogen
  • Oxytocin

If there is a proliferation of prolactin and serotonin in excess, this adversely affects the skin of a man, since the last hormone - the hormone of happiness - contributes to the increased production of the first, which can cause allergic lesions of the epidermis. This can not be said of glycogen and oxytocin. During sex, active development of these two hormones, they eliminate excess glucose, suppressing the pathogenic microflora of the dermis. The lack of a constant sexual life in a man leads to their deficiency, hence the appearance of acne.

And what about women?

The female organism is somewhat different in hormonal terms. The production of hormones during sex is built on three biologically active substances:

  • Oxytocin
  • Prolactin
  • Estrogen

Of the three hormones, as well as in men, prolactin has an adverse effect on the skin condition. As for oxytocin, it is extremely necessary for skin health, its effect is similar, as in the case of men, to the destruction of excess sugar, excluding the development of a bacterial environment in the body. Provoke pimples because of lack of sex may lack of estrogen, which is a hormone of female attractiveness, because it is thanks to this substance that the figure is formed and the regulation of the monthly cycle. Estrogen is able to perform miracles with the female skin, its sufficient secretion is a pledge of clean and velvety skin.

Presented data on the dependence of the appearance of skin eruptions in the form of acne due to insufficient number of sexual acts are highly individual. After all, a huge number of both women and men who are leading an inactive sexual life do not have any dermatological problems. Therefore, it is not worth a hundred percent to rely on acne to provoke a lack of sex and hormones. There are many more reasons, beginning with heredity, and ending with a malfunction in the work of the gastrointestinal tract , the presence of chronic pathologies, stress. Thus, to make hasty conclusions that sex helps with acne, from a medical point of view, it is unreasonable.

Can sex be the cause of acne?

This question excites many, especially women. Indeed, it is not uncommon for women to commemorate a relationship, having spent a stormy night with a beloved person. Of course, this fact lends itself to logic, but this phenomenon with the formation of acne does not have a chain with hormones and other endocrine processes. The whole thing is much simpler, here the hygienic factor and not more influence.

Performing sexual intercourse is in no way inferior to sports. What's happening? Active physical activity with excessive sweating. After? And after you want to relax and just nice to fall asleep, leaving the hygienic procedures for the morning, but in vain. After all, the strong work of the hypodermic sebaceous glands after sex, followed by an abundant sweat release, becomes an excellent medium for the propagation of pathogenic microorganisms, and the delicate skin of the face suffers, first of all. And, as a result, next morning after sex appear pimples.

As recommendations, the following rules can be noted here, which should not be neglected:

  1. Do not go to bed until a shower is taken, better in contrast. It's the shower, because sticky sweat covers the entire body, and acne on the back or chest looks also not aesthetically pleasing, as well as on the face.
  2. If the shower is not accepted, you should at least thoroughly wash, in case of emergency, just wipe your face with a soft napkin with a cleansing tonic or lotion.
  3. With long-term healing abscesses, persistent inflammatory processes on the skin, even with hygiene, it is necessary to make an urgent appointment with such doctors as: gynecologist, dermatologist and endocrinologist.

It is important not to ignore the alarm signals that the body sends, because acne can hide serious illnesses. To find out the root cause of their occurrence and quickly eliminate it, only a qualified specialist who will accurately tell the individual complex of treatment and preventive procedures will help.
