Menopause, Skin Care, & Magnesium
Magnesium intake can be managed in a variety of ways. Greens contain a healthy dose of magnesium, but most people can’t afford to eat a sufficient amount of greens on a regular basis. For skin specifically, there are skin-care products on the market which contain the mineral but the skin’s ability to metabolize it directly isn’t sufficient. Therefore, magnesium in the form of supplements is the easiest and most efficient way to secure proper amounts of magnesium for your skin and body. The recommended daily dose of magnesium for menopausal women is 320 milligrams.
Magnesium is necessary for the syntheses of enzymes which are essential in regulating DNA replication and repair. Human cells need magnesium to generate energy, especially in the heart, muscle, bone, and soft tissue. Without it, human cells (in the skin especially) are subject to a host of free radical damage and inflammation.
Supplementing magnesium to your diet has been demonstrated to provide several important health benefits, especially for women who are undergoing or have undergone menopause. It turns out that in addition to its nutritional benefits, magnesium is a powerful calming agent when applied topically. It has the potential for treating acne, rosacea, eczema, and minor skin irritation.
Magnesium plays a vital role in muscle contractions, as well as in maintaining nerve functions, and the production of some proteins, enzymes, and ATP (a cellular source of energy). It highly contributes to skin hydration and barrier repair, as well as to skin cell regeneration and shedding.
Magnesium & Skin – Benefits for Women in Menopause
A small-scale study demonstrated that topical treatment with magnesium chloride positively affected inflammatory response in the skin post UVB radiation. Sun is the major contributor to skin ageing so preventing and treating the damage it causes can be a game-changer for women in menopause.
As magnesium is necessary for the skin to maintain a healthy barrier, it is unsurprising that deficiency of this mineral has been recorded in people with dry, and damaged skins. More magnesium means more skin moisture.
Magnesium can help improve overall skin appearance by regulating its sebum production.
When applied topically, magnesium helps facilitate gentle detoxification of the skin, thereby controlling its odour, which is why it is used in many natural deodorants.
Research suggests that the proper combination of magnesium and calcium enhances skin barrier repair.
