I was wracking my brain for some clever beauty secret to share with all of you, and I could not stop flashing back to an early episode of the Oprah show I watched in my teens: A very attractive woman in her forties claimed the secret to keeping her model-perfect skin so smooth, youthful and beautiful was to slather it with a big ‘ol glob of spermicide.
Yes. Every night before she went to bed, she put spermicide on her face.
I’ve often wondered if PTA moms across the Midwest added Gynol to the grocery list that afternoon with giddy hopes they might have stumbled across the fountain of youth.
Although I’ve never put contraceptive products anywhere but their intended destination, that particular beauty tip has stayed in my memory, stuck there like the theme song from Gilligan’s Island or all six verb tenses for “burp” in German.
My own beauty secrets are significantly less exotic — lots of laughs, sleep and sex.
As the Debs’ resident dating expert, I’ll share a little secret with you: sex is great for your looks.
If the orgasms and naked men aren’t enough of a draw, below you’ll find three beauty reasons for having regular sex.
* It makes you younger looking: A study at Scotland’s Royal Edinburgh Hospital found that women who were having sex four times a week looked on average, 7 –12 years younger than their not-so-active counterparts.
*Sex gives you a better booty: That’s right, having sex works your butt, thighs, pelvis, and arms.
*It gives you better hair days: Sex releases estrogen, which makes your hair shiny and your skin supple.
Good skin and a good time? Absolutely beautiful.
