Magnesium oil: the new skin saviour

Magnesium oil: the new skin saviour

We’re always on the lookout for products that do double duty, and will give us glowing, radiant skin. And magnesium oil, a mineral, which helps you to digest food, eases migraines, and promotes a healthy heart, is an undercover skin saviour that definitely fits the bill.

If you can get enough of it, experts say it can improve the overall appearance of your skin, reduce acne and other skin disorders by lowering cortisol levels, and stabilising hormonal imbalances.

However, many people are deficient in the mineral, and it’s difficult to get enough via our diets filled with over processed food. Supplements are the most logical option to get your recommended dose of 250 milligrams per day. But creams, lotions or even sprays with added magnesium can also be a great way of getting the recommended amount of magnesium. While they don’t deliver the highest dose they can be an effective way to help your skin get a surge of skin-clearing magnesium.

Transdermal magnesium is available in the form of BetterYou's Magnesium Oil Spray Sensitive which is great as a calming agent for people with sensitive skin like redness or rosacea. There's also a BetterYou Magnesium Body Lotion, Body Butter and replenishing Magnesium Oil Original Bath Soak.

Good Health Naturally's Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel is a powerful combination of magnesium and bio active aloe vera which will work well for those suffering with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

Another option is Natural Vitality Calm Cream, a non-greasy, transdermal magnesium cream developed by Doctor Andrea Rosanoff, PhD. which will give your skin a hit of the most needed mineral. The key to fully absorbing it is to leave the gel on long enough for it to penetrate the skin.

Give the skin a deep cleanse before use, exfoliate, and administer any extractions before applying a magnesium gel to ensure the most effective absorption.
