Is your skin looking pallid or becoming inflamed, dry and itchy? Are you getting over-sensitive, not in control of your emotions or losing concentration easily? Do you feel anxious or restless, not being able to settle or get a good night’s sleep? Do you feel depleted and older beyond your years? Then chances are you are magnesium deficient. Simply giving the body what it needs can restore its energy metabolism, health and vitality. Your natural magnesium skin defence system plays a very important part in this process.
Stress can severely deplete magnesium stores, leading to toxic build up, acidosis, low energy and impaired metabolism. Magnesium is a cell defender and hydrator, fueling electrical energy to detox, control calcium, balance, relax, recover and rejuvenation.
If you lose the battle and environmental toxins get the better of your defence systems, you will age prematurely because pollution can’t be removed sufficiently and damaged cells won’t
be replaced like they should. The body’s tubes then get blocked, tissue cells become dehydrated, hard and crunchy and energy metabolism declines with ever-decreasing magnesium status.
Why magnesium? Because it is directly involved with mitochondrial energy production which drives enzymes, nerves and our whole electrical power system. Stress is the biggest drainer of magnesium stores. Magnesium deficiency means you lose your mojo. You can feel extra tired, fatigued, sleep deprived and overly sensitive or emotional with foggy brain.
Magnesium deficiency will also show on your face with signs of premature ageing.
It’s very important to support your skin barrier defence system so it can protect the cells on the inside of your body. Many chemicals in cosmetics can breach the skin barrier, entering the body as pollution and causing stress, oxidation and free radical damage. On the other hand, we can also feed the body with certain nutrients that pass through the skin – such as magnesium chloride and plant fats. The skin in this way acts as a kind of dinner plate where we can serve up substances, completely bypassing the digestive system. Are you going to feed it junk or healthy nutrition?
To get a deeper understanding of how to maintain natural beauty and vitality we first need to take a closer look at how our skin functions as part of the whole ‘body corporate’ – our body.
