Why Does It Tingle when I Apply BetterYou Magnesium Body Butter to My Skin?
The most important fact to remember is that this isn’t an allergic reaction to the magnesium, as magnesium is naturally found within the body and is vital to good health. This can actually be a sign the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. This tingling sensation is caused by the magnesium, which is a large molecule being rapidly absorbed through the epidermis.
Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area. We recommend using a small amount per area and increasing gradually. Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation so avoid these areas. This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
To reduce the reaction, BetterYou recommends the following:
Apply only a small amount to any individual skin area. Massage in well.
Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
Vary the application areas to increase the bodies overall magnesium level.
Little but often is the key. Massage in and wait for a minute or so then try a little more.
Can I Overdose on Transdermal Magnesium?
You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally, as large doses can have a laxative effect due to it being a natural relaxant. Toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common as the body eliminates excess amounts, unless there are serious problems with kidney function.
