Why does it tingle when I apply it to my skin ?
This can happen if the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. The skin can tingle as the magnesium is sucked through the skin rapidly and as magnesium is a large molecule it can cause this sensation. It is important to remember though that it isn’t an allergic reaction to the magnesium as it is found naturally within the body and is vital to good health.
Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area. We recommend 2-3 sprays in one area and then up to 20 sprays a day. Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation.
This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
Transdermal magnesium helps to increase your body’s magnesium levels up to 5 times faster than oral supplementation. To reduce the reaction we recommend the following techniques:-
(1) Apply only 2-3 sprays onto any individual skin area. Massage in well.
(2) Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
(3) Vary the application areas to increase the bodies overall magnesium level.
(4) Little but often is the key. If you just apply one spray that’s fine. Massage it in and wait for a minute or so then try another.
The key is to apply the Magnesium Oil wherever it feels comfortable. The magnesium, once absorbed into the skin, is circulated around the body so there is no direct need to focus just on a single area. However, once your magnesium levels begin to rise you will find areas that were sensitive before are no longer so.
Magnesium Flakes can provide a gentle solution to raising your levels. Added to a bath or foot soak they can provide a lower concentration of the solution that will increase your magnesium levels.
