Natural Anti-Aging


15 September 2020

As we learn more about the questionable chemicals and additives in our cosmetics, it’s useful to be aware of the natural products we can rely on for anti-aging.  Every year new products enter shop floors promising to reduce wrinkles, fight signs of aging and turn back time on our skin.  But we often overlook natural products for anti-aging.

Magnesium sulphate, or Epsom salt, is a naturally occurring substance which has a bountiful reputation for helping all manner of human conditions and concerns.  But perhaps the one we least associate it with is anti-aging.


Magnesium deficiency 

Lots of people are found to be deficient in magnesium.  This can have a detrimental impact on our overall wellbeing from poor quality sleep and depression, to weaker hair growth and reduced energy levels.  As a result many people are encouraged to take supplements of Magnesium to boost health and vitality, especially later on in life.  But it’s worth noting the body can also absorb magnesium through the skin.  Whether you soak, scrub, wash or rinse with Magnesium sulphate you’ll be boosting your body’s intake.


“Several pieces of evidence has linked low magnesium levels to aging and age-related diseases.” (Killilea and maier, 2009)


Magensium and inflammation

Inflammation is thought to be a key factor in premature aging. As the root cause of many chronic diseases, inflammation can play havoc with our bodies causing aches and pains. Low magnesium levels have been linked to chronic inflammation. So it’s vital to monitor and boost our magnesium levels. And what better way to do this than with a natural product?
