I was almost going to title this blog "Less Magnesium Equals Less Collagen and Less Collagen equals MORE wrinkles and fine lines" but it was a bit too long for a URL, so "Magnesium for Gorgeous Skin" about sums it up! 😊

If you'd like to learn more about magnesium for beautiful skin and beyond be sure to keep reading...

Magnesium and skin health go hand-in-hand. Not only is this benefit of magnesium overlooked, but over 70% of the population is magnesium deficient. This is a major problem for those of us looking to look and feel our best.

Before we get into the benefits of magnesium for skin health, let’s first talk a bit about the benefits of magnesium in general and how this miracle mineral works within our bodies.

The Benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium is a macro-mineral that occurs naturally. Our bodies have a reservoir of about 25 grams of magnesium, with 50-60% of it stored in our bones and the remainder in our soft tissues.

This mineral plays a role in over 300 enzymatic reactions, contributing to the robust functioning of cells, muscles, our nervous system, bones, and our hearts. Magnesium can also promote better sleep, and thanks to its muscle and bone strengthening abilities, can soothe headaches, cramps, constipation, and indigestion.

What's more, magnesium has also been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.

And as if this wasn't enough, magnesium can visibly improve the appearance and vitality of your skin.

The Skin Benefits of Magnesium

Perfect Supplements Australia

Magnesium deficiency causes collagen and fatty acid levels on your skin's surface to dwindle. The result is skin that's drier, has a splotchy tone, and is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

Magnesium helps with the synthesis of collagen and elastin so you can see how important it can be to take a high-quality magnesium supplement with your collagen supplement.

However, remember how magnesium is great for cellular health? Well, a little magnesium can go a long way toward protecting your cells while also encouraging enhanced cellular repair and rejuvenation.

This means your skin will be stronger, plumper and better equipped to withstand and bounce back from the ravages of your environment and time.

Another perk of magnesium for skin health

Magnesium is crucial for helping to balance hormones, and this may play a part in helping to help reduce acne and create smoother skin. This is great news for people who suffer acne of all ages as magnesium is all-natural and easy to add into the diet in supplement-form (see below for our recommendations).

How to Increase Your Magnesium Levels

Foods like oatmeal, spinach, kale, moringa, beans, nuts, dark chocolate, bananas, squash, and sunflower/pumpkin seeds are excellent sources of magnesium.

And then, of course, there are supplements, which you can use in addition to eating these magnesium-rich foods to ensure you're getting enough. In fact, if you’re prone to dry or uneven skin, headaches or muscle cramps, you may have a natural magnesium deficiency, in which case diet alone may not be enough and you may need to supplement?

Most doctors will recommend magnesium citrate. Magnesium citrate has an excellent absorption rate so more will be available to your body. Try our Perfect Magnesium Citrate capsules for an excellent quality supplement with extremely high bioavailability.

Perfect Magnesium Citrate Capsules

Perfect Magnesium Citrate also comes in a powder (my personal favourite) as it’s virtually tasteless and it can be added to milk, yoghurt, smoothies and much more! Click here to learn more.

Perfect Magnesium Citrate Powder

How Much Magnesium Do You Need Per Day?

Women require 310 mg of magnesium daily and men need 410 mg per day. However, if you work out regularly, experience skin, mood, or sleep problems or suffer from regular muscle cramps, stress, headaches, or migraines, you may require even more. Definitely talk to your doctor about your exact needs.

In the meantime, if you’re looking to improve the health and look of your skin—your body’s largest organ—start by making sure you’re getting enough magnesium.

PS: you may have just read that women require 310mg of magnesium per day and I just wanted to let you know that Perfect Magnesium Powder provides this in just 2 scoops that you can take separately or at the same time. The capsules provide this in 3 caps.

Perfect Magnesium powder: 1 scoop = 338mg elemental magnesium

Perfect Magnesium capsules: 3 capsules = 346mg of elemental magnesium
