Magnesium - Good For Your Skin and Body
Posted on: January 26, 2018
Magnesium is a mineral that we need in our daily diet. Unfortunately, this mineral has been farmed out of the soil, so we are no longer getting it in our food. In fact, 80% of the population is deficient because of this. Luckily, there are two ways to get it back into your body so that it can do its job! It can be taken in pill form or in lotion or oil form. While taking this mineral in pill form will introduce the necessary amount of it into your skin, it can have a laxative effect that not everyone can tolerate. However, using this mineral-infused lotions or oils that are applied directly to your skin can introduce it without that unwanted side effect.
Magnesium has an array of health benefits. It is great for your skin, hair and overall health. When introduced into the body, it can reduce wrinkles, acne, allergic skin reactions, and other skin conditions such as rosacea. It is the perfect addition to your skincare regiment if you have excessively oily skin as it reduces the amount of oil that your skin produces.
In addition to being an anti-oil, acne fighting machine, it has other health benefits. It creates strong hair follicles and reduces the risk of hair loss. Furthermore, it prevents osteoporosis, reduces the risk of heart diseases, regulates diabetes and blood pressure, and even cures headaches. The health benefits of this natural mineral are well worth taking the time to add it to your skin care regiment.
While this mineral used to be available in the meat and vegetables that we consumed, this is no longer the case. Decades of farming has stripped the soil of this healthy mineral. In order to combat the possibility of becoming deficient and losing out on all of the wonderful benefits that magnesium can offer, it must be taken as a supplement, lotion or oil.
