Love & Skin
Did you know falling in love can benefit your skin? We have the hormone oxytocin to thank for that. Research shows that higher oxytocin levels correlate with more youthful-looking, glowy skin. In addition, this hormone also helps lower the body’s production of cortisol, a stress hormone that can negatively affect the skin and body. However, the promise of slightly better skin is no reason to rush into a lackluster relationship—techniques like meditation, exercise, and a good skincare regimen work just as well. But if you meet someone you like, having that extra glow is a nice bonus.
