This is quite a common reaction to using the Magnesium Body Sprays or Magnesium Gel and can 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 skin.
This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
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.
