Magnesium is good for the skin

Magnesium is good for the skin!  Did you know that magnesium is an essential mineral?  You need it to function but you cannot synthesize it on your own.

Most people think of what magnesium does for their overall body/health.

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a role in hundreds of human enzyme reactions and several critical bodily functions.

Some of the processes that magnesium contributes to: 

  • regulation of nerve signaling
  • muscle activity
  • blood sugar balance
  • heart rhythm
  • immune system function
  • blood pressure
  • creating protein
  • bones
  • DNA

How Does Magnesium Affect The Skin?

Magnesium plays an important role in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body. And while magnesium benefits your “insides”, it absolutely can benefit your outsides as well.

A few of the ways that magnesium has a positive effect on your skin include:

  1. Improves Overall Appearance
    Having low levels of magnesium can result in a deficiency in essential fatty acids that support the skin. These acids play an important role in keeping skin moisturized and maintaining elasticity.
  2. Lowers Cortisol Levels
    Inflammation is a major trigger for several skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne breakouts.Sufficient magnesium can help to inhibit the release of the neurotransmitters that trigger stress and anxiety, lowering the amount and frequency of cortisol and potentially helping with inflammation. 
  3. Regulates Cellular Repair and Regeneration
    Your body is made up of billions of cells working together to keep you alive and well. Magnesium helps your cells in by regulating cell metabolism, supporting DNA replication to store information that’s passed onto new cells once created, and repairing damaged or weakened cells. The stronger and healthier your cells, the stronger and healthier you’ll be.
  4. Reduces Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage
    When you experience direct sunlight exposure, you’re being showered with ultraviolet radiation. With prolonged exposure, these ultraviolet rays can damage the skin due and lead to severe cellular damage, commonly resulting in the appearance of “sunspots,” the name for hyperpigmentation. Think of magnesium almost like an internal sunscreen. You absolutely should still use external sunscreen, but maintaining sufficient magnesium can boost your natural protection from sun damage.
  5. Soothes Redness and Inflammation
    As a response to inflammation, your liver releases a substance called C-reactive protein, or CRP. This protein binds to various cells and acts as an early defense against infections High levels of CRP also contribute to a systemic inflammatory response. Magnesium has been shown to reduce the level of CRP in the blood and lower inflammation in the body and redness.
