Magnesium: Our Holy Grail Ingredient for Nighttime Relaxation and Soft Skin

 

A hero ingredient in our Deep Sleep Bath Salts, we love Magnesium for its rich skincare benefits as well as its innate ability to help your body enter a state of relaxation after a long day. Melt away the chaos of the day and prepare for a restful night’s sleep with a warm bath, infused with Magnesium, our holy grail ingredient for relaxation.

Magnesium is an essential mineral found naturally in your body. When absorbed through the skin, it can have calming effects on both the body and mind — perfect for helping you unwind from the day and get ready for bed. When it comes to your skin, soaking in a Magnesium-infused bath surrounds your skin with softening and hydrating benefits so you step out of the tub and into bed with nourished skin.

We’ll be taking a deeper look at what magnesium is, its importance for our bodies, and how incorporating it into your bath ritual can lead to relaxation, and softer, more supple skin.

What is Magnesium And Why Is It Important?

Magnesium is a mineral found naturally in your body — often dubbed the ‘miracle mineral’ because it plays a pivotal role in over 300 chemical reactions in our body. Predominantly found in our bones, but also in our muscles, it has numerous benefits for our overall health – including brain and heart function, bone health and even the integrity of our muscles. Whilst we get magnesium through the foods we eat, it is also easily absorbed through the skin, and can be a very effective addition to your skincare rituals.

Magnesium can be beneficial in maintaining moisture levels while softening the skin and visibly reducing signs of premature aging. It’s calming properties are also amazing for helping sooth redness or irritation while providing relief for those with sensitive skin.

Benefits For The Body

Due to its calming effect on both the body and mind, Magnesium can help to reduce stress levels by inducing deep relaxation — allowing us to drift off into a peaceful slumber more quickly during bedtime. This also means that we wake up feeling refreshed every morning due to improved sleep  throughout the night.

Additionally, magnesium baths are incredibly beneficial when it comes to detoxifying and purifying — aiding in removing impurities from our pores while soothing sore muscles. 

Benefits For The Skin

Infusing your evening bath with Magnesium, envelops your skin in fatty acids which can help with collagen levels - responsible for keeping your skin bouncy and moisturized. Your skin is left hydrated and visibly more even bringing life and light back to lackluster skin. Magnesium can also help to protect your skin from external damage, as it helps to regulate cellular regeneration, increasing recovery when skin is disturbed and giving it strength when it’s under attack.

Incorporate Magnesium Into Your Bath Routine with Deep Sleep Bath Salts

Our Deep Sleep Bath Salts are infused with Magnesium, Peptides and a bouquet of floral essences designed to soothe tired muscles, and envelope the skin in nutrients and hydration, for a relaxing, skin-softening experience. As part of your evening skincare ritual, run a warm bath and add 2-3 scoops of Deep Sleep Bath Salts. The salts will dissolve and infuse your bath water into a skincare sanctuary, restoring moisture loss and replenishing nourishment for a healthy skin barrier.

Luxury Active Floral: Blue Tansy, A Holy Grail for Skin Stress

Blue Tansy oil for anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial skin benefits. Purifies, calms and soothes sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Saint Jane uses delicate florals with modern actives to nurture your skin back into balance. Our goal with each clean, floral ingredient is to harness their powerful attributes to target specific skin problems like fine lines, dark circles, sun spots, dull skin, dry skin, clogged-pores, blemishes, redness and so many others.

When we developed Superflower Detox Serum, we wanted the formula to be a purifying powerhouse, giving your skin a true reset to restore balance. A detoxifying, daily green juice for your skin that strengthens your skin barrier, decongests pores and delivers rich antioxidants to shield your skin from environmental stressors. We were able to accomplish these goals in this superboost serum with powerful, floral essential oils…one of which is Blue Tansy.

French medical and herbal practitioners have long acknowledged the therapeutic qualities of Blue Tansy oil and it has long been used for its known anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Cultivated and thoughtfully purveyed from the Moroccan region, our farmers use a steam-distillation process in order to extract the most potent state of Blue Tansy oil, harnessing its maximum benefits for the skin. Compounds found in this versatile flower can help skin that’s prone to a range of problems, including dryness, sensitivity, irritation, breakouts, wrinkles and dullness. Making Blue Tansy a more than ideal ingredient in your daily skincare ritual, no matter your skin type…especially wildly sensitive, angry-at-everything skin.

We adore and celebrate Blue Tansy as one of our chosen luxury active florals for so many reasons, but here are a few:

Powerfully Calms Skin Stress

Blue Tansy is ideal for those with acne-prone skin, blemishes and other sensitivities. 

The magnificent blue color of Blue Tansy oil and the soothing effects come from chamazulene, a compound in the flower that has rich antioxidant activity. Whether you suffer from rosacea, eczema, acne or just general sensitivities, adding blue tansy to your skincare can help to bring your skin back to balance. Since Blue Tansy is known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties, it can offer general relief to tame flare-ups, and soothe redness and irritation. 

Replenishes Moisture to Dry Skin

Blue Tansy beautifully helps to provide moisturizing and nourishing relief to dry complexions and to even the most delicate and troubled complexions. Skin that is stripped of moisture and raw can receive hydrating relief from this powerful ingredient, plumping the skin and restoring bounce and elasticity, leaving many different skin types balanced, and noticeably glowier.

Calms and Soothes Sensitivity

Skin practitioners praise the calming effects of Blue Tansy with its antioxidant rich compounds to help shield your skin from free-radical damage, often the cause of so many skin sensitivities due to the breakdown of your skin’s natural defense system…the barrier. Even with Blue Tansy’s powerful effects, it is still ultra calming and soothing to the skin, giving you noticeable results, no matter your skin type.
