Kissing: 6 Reasons You Need To Makeout More
Want another reason to get down with a serious kissing session tonight? Well, here are X for you…
IT BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
That sharing of saliva isn’t just sexy (as un-sexy as the beginning of this sentence is!), it’s also a great way to boost your immunity. Sure, if your partner is sick you may get sick (not rocket science), but if your partner is healthy you’ll get his/her sickness-fighting germs too making you less likely to get sick!
IT PREVENTS WRINKLES.
According to researchers, you use 30 muscles while kissing! And just like muscular legs look more youthful, a muscular face looks more youthful too by keeping your skin taught, wrinkle-free, and less likely to sag!
IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH.
While it’s no surprise that being intimate with another person is likely to boost your mood and confidence, kissing does even more than that. In fact, a make-out session boosts your brain’s levels of oxytocin (a calming chemical), endorphins (a natural upper), and dopamine (the feel-good chemical).
IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR TEETH.
Long kissing sessions increase saliva flow, which is instrumental for dental hygiene.
IT’S A NATURAL STRESS RELIEVER.
Kissing reduces cortisol, the stress hormone. Over worked, over tired, and about to lose it? Kiss someone instead!
IT BOOSTS YOUR METABOLISM.
Those feelings you get when you’re into someone don’t just make you feel like your heart is racing, they actually make your heart race. The result: a more quickly beating heart and a boost of adrenaline, both of which increase your metabolism.
