Magnesium for Skin

Anti Aging – Anti Wrinkle – Moisturizer

Areas around your eyes and face treated with Magnesium Chloride Oil show a significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles for many people - Mg presence enhances hydration of your skin and encourages the production of collagen. Many people also see a significant reduction in wrinkle depth.

Magnesium oil has been shown to increase the production of DHEA production when applied to the skin - DHEA is a pre-cursor for the male and female hormones having several benefits for skin. Dr. Norm Shealy, graduate of Duke University medical school and a well-known author / lecturer, has tested magnesium oil comparing transdermal to oral and intravenous applications. He emphasizes that DHEA deficiency is present in almost every illness, and that magnesium oil sprayed on the skin brings body's DHEA levels back to normal within 30 to 45 days.

-   Here are a couple of studies providing evidence that DHEA has beneficial effects on skin health and appearance:

✔    In a 2000 ex-vivo study, DHEA increased production of collagen (the sought-after youthful promoting component of the skin's connective tissue ), whilst decreasing production of the collagenase enzymes that destroy it.

✔     In 2008, Canadian scientists studying postmenopausal women using topical DHEA cream concluded that “DHEA could exert an anti-aging effect in the skin" -". . . through stimulation of collagen biosynthesis, improved structural organization of the dermis while modulating keratinocyte metabolism.” They found that the womens' skin contained > 50 DHEA-responsive genes, and not only did DHEA turn on several collagen-producing genes, it also reduced expression of genes involved with production and hardening of keratinocytes (skin cells that form calluses / rough skin).

Magnesium Chloride Oil will help in fighting this hormonal reaction by your skin when applied to skin in areas where acne is present or prone to immerge

Psoriasis and Eczema

The National Psoriasis Foundation (www.psoriasis.org) recommends a treatment using the sun and water therapy from the Dead Sea - Psoriasis and eczema can often be healed very quickly by applying Transdermal Magnesium Therapy.

Magnesium for Hair

Long-term Mg deficiency may result in inflammation and calcium deposits in the hair follicles - calcification of the scalp constricts the blood supply to the hair follicles, causing reduced nutrient flow.

Male Pattern Baldness - Transdermal magnesium chloride oil may be beneficial for male pattern baldness, by dissolving calcium deposits in the scalp and increasing body's magnesium levels. You can apply magnesium chloride oil directly onto your scalp or massage it into thin areas of the skin and scalp in order to maximize absorption into your bloodstream.

Hair conditioner - apply a little magnesium chloride oil to hair after washing for softening effect;
