Our skin is much more than just a sack to hold your body parts together.
It has many roles in maintaining good health while also producing pleasure in the flirting, dating and mating processes. Good skin is very important for all round sex appeal in men and women. While we pay a lot of attention to our bodies, we tend to miss out on feeding our skin and ensuring that it gets adequate care. The importance of skincare, however, cannot be overlooked, if you want all round self confidence which adds to looking sexy. Often when people think about the pleasures of sex, they think about genital arousal or orgasm. While I'm not arguing about that, I think that one of the most pleasurable parts of sexual intimacy is the experience of touching and being touched all over. Years of research has shown that human babies and many animal babies need touch not only to survive, but to thrive. Touch can have psychological effects of helping people to feel loved, happy, accepted, calm or reassured. Touch can also have biological effects, such as by helping to promote the release of oxytocin. Which has often been referred to as the "cuddle hormone" Your skin is your largest pleasure organ and can receive stimulating signals in several ways, including pressure, heat, rubbing and gentle scratching. It also releases pheromones that taste and smell delicious to the opposite sex.
It has over half a million sensory signal fibers entering the spinal cord just on the back. The skin also stores fat, and acts as a shock absorber against impact sexual or otherwise. It can detect a touch on nearly every place on the body. Further, the skin can detect not only a "contact" feeling, it can detect vibration, pressure, temperature, rubbing and liquid or dry. Only a few degrees up or down will cause you to feel really bad as a signal that you are in an unhealthy condition and you better do something fast to correct the situation. On the other hand, a little warm and wet can feel very good! Your skin is a wonderful pleasure organ! The right touch, stroke or pat can trigger off wonderful feelings as the brain releases dozens of different hormones that instantly go into the blood. In different parts of the body the hormones start actions preparing the body for more action.

Trying to improve your skin by eating the right foods? Try These Suggestions:
1. Low fat yogurt: Low fat dairy products are full of vitamin A. This essential vitamin does wonders for our skin. If you have a thyroid problem or diabetes that’s another reason for you to stock up on organic low fat yogurts
2. Berries: I am talking about plums, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. These berries have a great antioxidant capacity which means, the more of these we have, the longer our skin will look youthful and healthy
3. Salmon: Our skin needs essential fatty acids. If fish isn't your thing, try walnuts, flax seed or grape or olive oil. All these will give you an amazing result Omega 3 and Omega 6 may sound like a Sci-fi flick, but these fatty acids are a must for a beautiful, well moisturized skin.
4. Green tea: This drink contains polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory characteristics. A good tea will not dehydrate your body, it will only work as an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent that will keep bacteria at bay and will fight off those free radicals that make our skin age early.
5. Water: Did I even need to mention it? Good hydration is our skin's best friend, And I’m talking about good filtered water in its purest form and not sodas or energy drinks, bottled or tap water. So make sure that you’re getting at least 8 glasses of water a day for your beautiful skin.
6. Skin Creams: There are thousands of skin creams in the market. Some are very effective if used properly. The problem with most of these special skin creams is that once you stop using them the improvements revert. Look for skin creams that include alpha hydroxy acids, kinetin, coenzyme 10, or antioxidants. Researchers found these ingredients bring rapid results and the sexy glow back to dull dry skin.
Girls, acording to Dr. Oz, "a good rule of thumb for makeup is less is more. The challenge with makeup is in covering up problem areas that can then be further aggravated by the makeup. Look for a makeup that is noncomedogenic and nonacnegenic. It is also important not to forget sunscreen even while wearing makeup. Finally, be sure to have a mild cleanser and an effective moisturizer on hand in the evening when you remove your makeup. Always apply the moisturizer after removing your makeup."
Most people do not realize this but excess sugar is considered one of the main causes of premature aging. The more sugar we eat, the more sugar we have entering our bloodstream. Over time, this can result in a process known as glycation, which is when a glucose (sugar) molecule damages a protein molecule by sticking to it. The new molecules formed are called advanced glycation end-products, or AGE's. AGE's damage collagen in skin, cartilage, and ligaments and promote a loss of elasticity. Wrinkles form and skin begins to sag. Massage has been around for thousands of years, dating all the way back to ancient cultures in places like China, India, Egypt and Greece [source: Recently, massage has gained increasing popularity as both a means of stress relief and an alternative medical therapy.

An occasional loofah exfoliation works for me. You can do it in the morning when you shower. It eliminates dead skin cells and allows the skin to detox, because as we know our skin is the largest organ of elimination. Exfoliation also improves lymph and blood circulation and decreases puffiness. An added benefit is that the gentle pressure is calming to the nervous system. Just take it easy harder is not better remember you're not sanding wood!
So feed you skin from the inside. Nutrition, good fats, eating healthy and exercising are of course basics you need to follow for healthy, sexy, glowing skin. Good Luck...
