Magnesium Scrubs

 

The miracle ingredient surging through the organic skincare market is magnesium, taking centre stage as one of the most powerful and diversifying ingredients for your skin. Though magnesium has been used primarily for exercise and muscular recovery in the past, skincare brands have incorporated this miracle ingredient across their moisturisers, body washes, and, most popularly, body scrubs. We share with you the four reasons to look for magnesium in your exfoliators, highlighting why you should invest in this ingredient for your skin today.

Anti-aging Effects

When we are experiencing a lack of magnesium in the body and skin, which is prevalent for most people deficient of this essential vitamin, our skin appears sunken and lifeless. Over time, the skin loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles to emerge easily and quickly, especially as we age. Magnesium is also essential in the development of collagen in our skin, as it helps to promote new growth naturally.

Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is a persistent problem for most women, especially. As we flood our body with toxins, either from poor dietary choices, lifestyle choices, genetic predisposition or from using non-organic based skincare, our skin cells become clogged. This clogging results in the dimple like appearance. To reduce the occurrence of cellulite, and strengthen the skin tissues, magnesium applied directly to the skin helps penetrate the issue quicker than other forms. Magnesium scrubs are particularly versatile, as they address the cellulite issues while rejuvenating the skin via the removal of dead skin cells.

Acne Support

Magnesium is highly beneficial for calming the skin; as a supplement, magnesium helps support sleep and relaxation, but in skincare, magnesium helps to reduce the irritation in the skin. For those who are acne-prone, irritation can lead to outbreaks easily, as the clogged and arrogated pores become inflamed. Magnesium also helps manage stress levels and gut microfibre, which is also the route cause for breakouts in some people.

Redness and Inflammation

Magnesium is one of the best ingredients for fighting inflammation, as it’s anti-inflammatory properties work to calm the body’s nervous system. Redness is common for most sensitive skin suffers, or those prone to rosacea. Opting for magnesium-based skincare is wise; using a magnesium scrub all over the body helps to repair damaged skin cells without irritating the skin, compared to that of other exfoliators with harsh ingredients that irritate sensitive skin types.

 

Magnesium can be found in all of our scrubs as it is an active element in both coffee and Pink Himalayan salt. Check out our scrub range here. Or you can get your magnesium fix with one of our magnesium sprays here.
