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.
