Is it a myth that love will give you fresh, glowy, rosy-hued skin? Well, studies show that being in love absolutely can affect your skin, mood, and even your sleep for the better. So, pucker up buttercup and get ready for healthier skin!

Hugging, kissing, cuddling or “getting it on” (Let’s get it on Marvin Gaye style) can trigger the release of the “love hormone”, oxytocin. The release of oxytocin is like having a romantic high. This hormone can reduce stress-induced inflammation and improve beauty sleep.

A study conducted by the Ohio State University in 2004, found that mice with elevated oxytocin levels from social interaction had better wound recovery than mice that were isolated with high levels of cortisol (the stress hormone). This proves the theory that oxytocin can actually help facilitate the healing of your skin. In addition to helping your skin heal, the increased levels of oxytocin in your body can actually suppress cellular deterioration. Oxytocin is proven to be beneficial for protecting skin against age-related disorders.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could bottle up these effects and slide them over your skin anytime you need a little glow? Well, the good news is – YOU CAN! Dr. Hayre has created a formula that gives you the effects of LOVE IN A BOTTLE.
