‘Zest- Citrus’ has a refreshing stimulating soft citrus fragrance with pure essential oils of lemongrass, bergamot and vanilla. For medium skin types, this magnesium cream is light and summery, yet with a luxurious and buttery skin barrier protection and hydration. It is particularly good as an insect repellent because of the citrus oils. It can be used as an all-over anti-aging moisturizer, face cream, underarm deodorant, anti-itch cream, after-sun recovery cream and massage cream. If you have medium to oily or Mediterranean type skin this one could be ideal for you.
One dessertspoon of Elektra Magnesium Zest Citrus magnesium cream to cover the whole body provides approx. 250-300mg of elemental magnesium, equivalent to the average daily recommended magnesium requirement. Some individuals may need two or three times this much magnesium in cases of more severe magnesium deficiency. In this case extra magnesium can be supplied via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz, as well as foot soaking or bathing with Elektra Magnesium Flakes.
You cannot overdose with transdermal magnesium because the body only takes up from the epidermis the magnesium that it can deal with at any one time. The skin acts in this way as a reservoir of nutrients – a bit like a dinner plate or smorgasbord. The rich plant oils and butters help hold the magnesium ions inside the epidermal layer until used by the body. It helps also to keep the skin well hydrated, plumped up and protected for several hours after application of the cream.
