You’ve likely heard of magnesium supplements, but have you ever used magnesium in your skincare? This mineral not only does wonders for your body, it also does wonders for your skin, especially if you're oily or are prone to breakouts.
Magnesium has been used in Korean Skincare and K-Beauty to fight acne for years. Paired with hydrocolloid, another powerhouse acne ingredient, our Magnesium Hydrocolloid Acne Patches are a first of its kind ingredient pairing.
What Is Magnesium?
Magnesium is an alkaline macro mineral that is naturally occurring in our bodies, and different types of food, including sunflower seeds, nuts, legumes, spinach, bananas, and squash. It is responsible for balancing a multitude of bodily functions.
In skincare, magnesium lowers cortisol levels, stabilizes hormonal imbalances, repairs the skin barrier and reduces inflammation, all of which help clear acne.
How Does Magnesium Fight Breakouts?
Magnesium is highly effective in breaking down and absorbing oil and bacteria in the pores and balancing your skin’s pH.
This is good news for anyone looking to clear a blemish. And let’s be honest, who isn’t?
Less oil and acne-causing bacteria means clearer pores and blemish-free skin. Magnesium’s anti-inflammatory properties also help to reduce redness around any blemishes that pop up. (If you’ve ever had a cystic breakout, you know what we mean.)
Benefits of Topical Magnesium for Acne:
- Control oil production
- Kill breakout-causing bacteria
- Reduce inflammation
- Minimize redness
- Even skin tone
- Balance your skin’s pH
The key with magnesium is absorption. It needs to be fully absorbed into your skin to properly do its job, making a patch the ideal delivery mechanism.
Micro darts instantly deliver the formula directly into your pimple, and by wearing the patch for 8 - 12 hours, all of the ingredients are fully absorbed into the skin.
- Magnesium and hydrocolloid work together to absorb oil and draw out impurities
- Hydrocolloid traps excess oil in the patch, not your pores
- Magnesium oxide balances your skin’s PH and oil production, killing acne-causing bacteria.
