This is quite a common reaction when first applying magnesium topically, however this will subside with continued use.
To reduce the reaction, we recommend the following techniques: -
- Apply only a small amount to any individual skin area and massage in well.
- Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
- Vary the application areas, avoiding sensitive or broken skin areas.
- Little but often is the key. Massage in and wait for a minute or so then try a little more.
Magnesium Flakes added to a warm bath or footbath, or Magnesium Creams can provide a gentler solution to raising your levels.
