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.

We believe in the de-stressing power of a bath. A relaxing way to recharge, to take 30 minutes for yourself to melt away the chaos of the day, and prepare your body and mind for a night of deep sleep. Bath rituals are sacred and we wanted to create a product that infuses the bath water surrounding and soaking your skin with rich-florals and essential minerals for your skin and body. Meet DEEP SLEEP BATH SALTS, rich in Magnesium, Peptides and a bouquet of skin-loving floral ingredients that work to soothe tired muscles, soften, nourish and deeply hydrate your skin. These bath salts transform your bath into a skin-softening sanctuary that instantly calms to prepare you for your best night’s sleep…ever.

When thoughtfully selecting ingredients for our bath salts, we wanted a combination of science-backed actives and our signature florals to achieve optimal benefits for your skin while you soak. Here are our holy grail ingredients in Deep Sleep Bath Salts that transform your bath water into a pool of skin benefits:

Magnesium

Our hero ingredient in the formula, we love Magnesium for its calming properties. Soaking in a warm bath with Magnesium can help to soothe tired muscles, promote a feeling of calming relaxation and deeply nourish your skin.

Peptides

Peptides can help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by increasing collagen production and stimulating the skin's natural repair processes. Peptides can also help to restore skin hydration levels and improve overall skin tone by boosting ceramide production. This helps to keep skin looking plump, firm, and radiant.

Evening Primrose

Evening primrose oil is rich in essential fatty acids which help to strengthen the skin's natural barrier and keep it properly hydrated. It also helps to promote cell renewal which can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin over time.

Wild Orchid

Wild Orchid is packed with essential antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from damage caused by environmental stressors and free radicals that cause oxidative stress…which can lead to pre-mature aging. 

Sacred Lotus

Sacred Lotus is an incredible source of essential fatty acids, which are important for healthy cell growth and keeping the skin hydrated and balanced. 

Jasmine

Jasmine is a great source of Vitamin E, an essential vitamin and antioxidant which helps to keep the skin hydrated by preventing moisture loss and strengthening your skin’s protective barrier against the environment.

Chamomile

We love Chamomile for its widely known calming properties for the skin. Chamomile can help soothe redness and irritation providing rich, hydrating relief to dry, sensitive skin.

How to Use

As part of your nighttime, self-care ritual, run a warm bath and add 2-3 scoops of DEEP SLEEP BATH SALTS directly into the water. The salts will dissolve and infuse your bath with vitamins, minerals and rich floral nutrients to calm your mind, body and beautifully soften your skin. 

For even more skin-smoothing hydration, apply our Luxury Body Serum and Hydrabloom Body Silk once out of your bath. 

Incorporating these luxurious formulas into your evening self-care routine will prepare your mind and body for a night of deep sleep, leaving you feeling rested and ready for the next day. You’ll wake up with soft, hydrated skin that’s balanced and more nourished than ever.

The Incredible Benefits of Vitamin C for Your Skin

 

Today is National Vitamin C Day, but we don’t need an excuse to talk about one of the most prized, iconic skincare ingredients on the market. Vitamin C is one of the most well-known, highly available skincare ingredients, for good reason. It’s brightening, antioxidant-rich, and renewing benefits for the skin are unmatched. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays a key role in promoting overall skin wellness. From brightening your complexion, to protecting against environmental stressors and free radical damage, the benefits of Vitamin C for your skin are vast, making it a hero ingredient to incorporate into your daily skincare ritual. 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are a powerful resurfacer, each citrus-infused drop is packed with clean actives to transform dull complexions and leave your skin balanced and visibly smoother. This innovative, fresh-pressed brightening serum delivers radiant, glass-like skin. 

 

 

Our Vitamin C Glow Drops are clinically proven to transform your skin. In a blind, clinical  study conducted with 100 consumers under a doctor's supervision, consumers experience incredible results:

  • 98% said skin looked brighter
  • 99% said skin felt more improved
  • 99% would recommend it to a friend
  • 100% said skin looked more glowy
  • 99% saw more radiance

Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Alex Zeitany recommends Vitamin C Glow Drops saying, “This product contains 20% Vitamin C, one of the highest percentages on the market, Ferulic Acid which works synergistically to boost the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the form of gentle citrus (like lemon, pink grapefruit) and that’s going to provide a light chemical exfoliation to the skin. What’s so special about this serum is its oil base, which is going to hydrate and nourish the skin and help restore your skin barrier while giving you antioxidant benefits to brighten the skin and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal even for those with sensitive skin.”

 


Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin: Our Solution

With Vitamin C being such an active ingredient, it is known to often irritate sensitive skin and be too harsh for some delicate complexions. When we developed our Vitamin C Glow Drops we wanted a serum that was able to deliver all of the incredible benefits of Vitamin C, but in a gentle way, suitable for all skin types. Even the most sensitive complexions.

For starters we use a potent, best-in-class 20% active Vitamin C that is encapsulated in Glycerin (think of it like your daily supplement!) which allows deeper absorption into the skin in a much more gentle way.

What’s special about our Vitamin C Glow Drops is that its a hydrating oil-based formula with calming florals like Rose and Arnica to moisturize and nourish your skin and restore your skin barrier, while still delivering antioxidant benefits to help brighten and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Both Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid, which we included in the formula, have strong calming properties and work together synergistically to boost the antioxidant effects of Vitamin C and deliver maximum benefits. The addition of Ferulic Acid with Vitamin C makes a potent skincare solution, even if you have sensitive skin as it helps to calm irritation, boost collagen and deliver maximum antioxidant protection to your skin. Your sensitive skin is better shielded from environmental stressors that can otherwise irritate your complexion.

Let’s dive a little deeper into the reasons why Dermatologists and the SAINT JANE team believe in this powerhouse ingredient:


Brightening and Balancing Skin Tone

Vitamin C is known for its brightening properties, helping to even out skin tone and fade dark spots. Vitamin C works by inhibiting unwanted pigment development, often caused by overexposure to the sun and skin dehydration. Vitamin C can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and leave your skin looking brighter, clearer, and more radiant.


Anti-Aging Benefits

Vitamin C is also incredibly effective at reducing the signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production, Vitamin C can help to firm up your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Vitamin C can also help to protect your skin against environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation, which can cause premature aging and damage to skin cells.


Boosting Skin's Natural Defenses

Vitamin C plays an important role in boosting your skin's natural defenses. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to protect your skin cells from free radical damage and other harmful molecules that can damage your skin. By boosting your skin's natural defenses, Vitamin C can help to protect your skin against environmental stressors, pollution, and UV radiation, keeping it looking healthy and radiant.


Promoting Skin Cell Turnover

Vitamin C also has incredible renewing properties for the skin by boosting collagen production and your skin’s elasticity. 

How to Incorporate Vitamin C into Your Skincare Routine

We recommend applying our Vitamin C Glow Drops daily as part of your AM skincare ritual. Using a Vitamin C serum in the morning, will give your skin the antioxidant support it needs throughout the day. After cleansing your skin, apply a full dropper of the serum onto dry skin and massage until completely absorbed. Follow up with a moisturizer like our Hydrating Petal Cream, and (of course!) SPF like our Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30.

Wearing a facial SPF is important for everyday but especially important after using a Vitamin C Serum. Gentle citrus actives like Lemon and Pink Grapefruit in our Vitamin C Glow drops act as light exfoliators to boost skin renewal. Your freshly regenerated skin cells need immediate protection from sun damage.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for your skin and one that you should incorporate daily for maintaining healthy radiant skin and that lit from within glow.
