It is called beauty sleep for a reason. While you snooze at night, cortisol levels are at their lowest and growth hormones are at their highest. These nutritive molecules ensure your outer layer is functioning properly and maximizing its ability to repair itself.

Feeling serene or upbeat has similar effects to getting a good night’s sleep (this is why when you’re happy, people say you are glowing). Your skin can also benefit from another bedroom activity that begins with s: Sex not only lowers cortisol, it also increases both beta-endorphins and oxytocin, an anti-imflammatory molecule, all of which works wonders for your skin.
