Not only does being in love make you feel amazing, the good feelings that come with this blissful state are really beneficial. Says Professor Jacques Snyman, Clinical Advisor for Resolution Health Medical Scheme, love gives you a mental, physical and spiritual boost that can combat illness and even increase your life span. Here are just some of the bonuses of being loved up.
That healthy glow from being in love isn’t a myth – many studies indicate that people in happy relationships look physically younger than those who aren’t. ‘With the increasing blood flow to the skin, being in love can increase the supply of essential nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, making you look healthier,’ explains Snyman.
