We all know that a romatic kiss is priceless. Scientists believe that kissing has many more advantage than just romantic action and can pose many health benefits from keeping your skin glow to getting you in good shape.
Here at One Million Ideas, we share this research for all of you.
It helps you lose weight.
It burns calories. The study points out, “Simple kisses burn only 2 to 3 calories, while passionate kissing consumes 5 to 26 calories per minute.” Okay, it may not sound like that until you compare it to other activities. It could burn up to 180 calories for 30 minutes of passionate kissing, which is probably more than 30 minutes walking at 3.5 mph, mowing the loan or washing the car. Kissing definitely can’t replace running or a walk on the park but it’s more enjoyable.
It’s good for your skin.
We know that to stay fit, we need to work out. The truth is when we kiss, we use more than 30 facial muscles that keep our cheeks tight and firm. So passionate kissing is like a Crossfit workout for your face.
It reduces wrinkles.
When we use muscles, they rises blood circulation and generate collagen in the tissues which are basically building material for skin and the best natural prevention against getting wrinkles. In general, kissing is a simple version of visiting a beauty salon. I admit that it might be not enough to make us look younger, but it obviously makes us look happier.
It’s good for stress relief.
Kissing naturally make us relax. Research has shown that it increases levels of natural chemicals in our body like oxytocin, a natural calming agent along with endorphins, the chemical that makes us feel happy. It also decreases cortisol that is related to stress.

Kissing is good for your teeth healthy because it affects the saliva production and it naturally wipe out the bacteria, preventing the creation of acidic conditions. Some dentists think that saliva can help to repair small damages in enamel.
