Unlocking Radiant Skin: The Benefits of Transdermal Magnesium in Your Beauty Routine

Magnesium is often referred to as the beauty mineral due to its numerous benefits for skin

 For the last 20 years, my focus has been on the importance of minerals for your body, starting with soaking in magnesium. I got so tired of spending so much money on expensive facial masks. It seems the older I get, the more susceptible I am to gimmicks and statistics that are made up on social media. I looked for a mask that included magnesium and zinc. It made me laugh that I ended up in the grocery store instead of Ulta or Sephora. The results have been nothing less than spectacular.

Full-Fat Greek Yogurt (Unsweetened): The base of your mask, Greek yogurt is rich in probiotics and lactic acid, which help to hydrate the skin and reduce signs of aging by gently exfoliating dead skin cells, promoting cell regeneration. The full-fat content ensures your skin receives plenty of hydration.



Honey Benefits:
A natural humectant, honey helps moisturize the skin by drawing water into the skin from the air. Honey also has antibacterial properties, making it an excellent remedy for acne. Additionally, it can soothe inflammation and redness due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties.
