Magnesium and Skincare
Diets high in processed ingredients (especially sugar) have been shown to contribute to crow’s feet, wrinkles, and fine lines because it damages the tissue that is responsible for keeping the skin smooth.
A diet without live foods — foods like salads, including those containing magnesium which is a natural detoxifier, etc., can cause a lack of luster in the skin and hair. Salads, raw juicing, and raw foods do the opposite by giving your skin a natural glow. It’s difficult to get enough magnesium through foods because of modern food processing methods and because the mineral has been depleted from soils, so supplementation with an absorbable form, such as magnesium citrate powder that can be mixed with water, can help both skin and overall health, says Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, a doctor and nutrition expert, author of The Complete Natural Guide to Women’s Health.
