What is Sperm Exactly?

Semen is the reproductive fluid that the penis releases during ejaculation. Semen may contain ingredients that can benefit the skin, but the small quantity of these is unlikely to provide any good things. On the other side, Putting semen on the skin or consuming it also carries the risk of developing an allergic reaction and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

STIs: When you apply semen to your face, there is the risk of developing STIs. The infection can be spread through the mucous membranes on the face such as eyes, nostrils, lips.

Infections: Semen can transmit the infections such as as herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.

Sperm Does Not Help with Anything on Your Skin

All those YouTube videos and claims from salons are not really good enough to convince experts. What experts have to say about the use of semen on the skin- there is nothing in the semen or sperm that is beneficial for the skin. Neither does it help treat acne or blemishes nor create a youthful appearance.

Sperm does not help with acne

Acne is one of the most common skin problems, and people are always on the lookout for the right solution. Some people believe that semen may help treat and improve acne. This stems from the idea that spermine, an organic compound found in semen, contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the use of semen as a treatment for acne. Experts suggest that semen is not beneficial in terms of treating acne or any other skin problem.

Sperm does not help with wrinkles

As we age, our skin starts having wrinkles and fine lines, we look for solutions that can tighten the skin while eliminating those unwanted signs.
A 2021 study notes that spermidine, when secreted from streptococcus bacteria, can contribute to skin recovery by encouraging collagen synthesis. However, The amount of spermidine within sperm is likely too low to help skin look younger. But many foods have high levels of spermidine, such as citrus fruits and green peppers.

Let’s Face the Reality

Sperm does not work on your skin, SEX does.

According to dermatologists, sex offers amazing benefits to your skin. It brings you close to your partner, feels pretty damn nice, considered as an exercise, and this list of benefits is so long.

Have you ever noticed that after the fun activities, the skin glows quite differently? Your skin looks healthy and alive from within, with a light misting of sweat, and a flush to your cheeks. So, healthy and glowing skin is the 
credit you must give to the actual intercourse, not the sperm.

What Actually Helps Your Skin?

CBD: CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical found in marijuana, known for its healing properties. CBD has some anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that can help in treating skin-related issues.

The anti-inflammatory properties make CBD a perfect option for acne-prone skin. It helps to decrease excess sebum (oil) production and treat many skin related issues such as inflammation, dryness and free radical damage.

CBD’s antioxidant properties help to reduce the visible signs of aging. So you can easily get rid of wrinkles and skin dullness.
