    Magnesium Oil is working!!

    Well maybe try adding a few drops of a very gentle oil like raspberry seed oil, hemp seed oil, or pumpkin seed oil. I’m glad to hear it’s going better. It was about 3 weeks in that i started finally seeing a drastic improvement.

    Well I know everyone’s skin is different so it isn’t guaranteed to work. My purging started to subside after about 2 weeks. So it was very difficult to get thru that time. It brought everything out of my trouble areas like my cheekbones and jawline. It was around 3 weeks before it started looking a lot better. And now it’s been like 10 weeks and my skin feels amazing. My skin feels like silk. The only reason I pushed thru he purge was because I was sure that’s what it was, rather than a bad reaction The pictures I posted where my skin was TERRIBLE are from like days 6-12. I would try to stick it out for 2-3 weeks if you can and then evaluate. But obviously you have to do what you think is best. You know your skin best Also, if you need more encouragement, check out the salt water posts on here. There are no MO posts, but MO is a type of saltwater so i got encouragement from those forums because almost every single person complained about a bad purge at the beginning, being the worst around the second week, and then they all said it got better. Although a few people gave up during the purge. But I think every person that stuck it out raves about how it worked. But I totally understand. I refused to go anywhere for several weeks

    Yes, that’s correct. I pour a little into my hand, rub them together and then rub it into my skin. For whatever reason, I haven’t needed moisturizer at all. My skin has been wonderfully hydrated. Plus the Burt’s bees cleanser is very moisturizing so that might be part of the reason. Although I was noticing my hydration issues disappeared before I added the cleanser Regarding sensitivity to the citrus oil, maybe you didn’t dilute it enough? I’m using 20 drops or so in a whole 4oz bottle of MO. I only started adding the Orange oil because of that article I read https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16734569/ i finally found it again! Lol

    The cleanser feels amazing and hydrating as well plus, like I said, I’m not over cleansing. Just once a day to remove makeup. In the mornings I just splash water on my face, apply the MO like a toner, then apply makeup.

    I’m using a mild cleanser from Burt’s Bees that i absolutely LOVE. I’m just using it at night to wash off makeup. And I don’t really pay much attention at all to what I eat. My acne doesn’t seem to ever be diet related. I do happen to eat healthy. We eat mostly organic and we really don’t eat much sugar. But my skin had a steady decline through this year even with eating healthy so I think my acne is more hormonal. I use no moisturizer now whatsoever. I used to use different oils but the MO has made my skin so soft and hydrated, it’s completely eliminated the need for moisturizer of any kind. My skin never feels dry or oily, it’s just a perfect smooth even tone and texture and hydrated. I could tell he difference with the hydration like within the first few days to a week. Even when I was purging, the surrounding skin felt much healthier.

    I did have a bad purge, but for me, I think that was necessary. I mean all that crap was just hanging out under my skin and it needed to come out. I had been applying it to other areas(although not daily) and I wasn’t seeing any improvement in my skin. It wasn’t until I started using it on my face directly that I started seeing drastic results. I think mixing it with sweet orange oil is key though AND it does sting like heck on broken skin so brace yourself. But I’m telling you, it’s been two months now and that’s all I use. But a therapeutic grade 100% sweet orange oil. You can probably get it on Amazon for like $10-$15 and add like 20-30 drops to the bottle of ma oil, shake it up, and you’re good to go. The mag oil I use is by Asutra. I don’t think the brand matters and long as it’s just magnesium chloride and no other ingredients. I’m telling you though, this is all I’ve been doing and as you can see from the pictures I’m getting amazing results. Are you allowed to post links on here? Honestly I just randomly purchased the oil on amazon and the sweet orange oil was in an essential oil gift set I got for Christmas. But both are very easy to find on Amazon. Just get the ones that have good ratings

    I don’t know why they didn’t post, I’ll try again. Just be prepared for the purge, but you can tell it’s definitely just bringing everything out because a small hard lump under the skin becomes a Whitehead within like two days. And now, my skin is completely smooth. Before I started this, my skin was so lumpy and bumpy it was just awful. So as you can see (hopefully) there is some hyperpigmentation BUT zero active acne or bumps. So now I can easily cover with a little makeup and my skin looks perfect. The residual marks will take another couple weeks to fade completely. But it’s definitely not a fluke or temporary or whatever because I’ve been doing this for 2 months now and there’s only been steady improvement.

    Magnesium Oil is working!!

    Hi! I’m glad someone finally responded! Lol I’m just so excited that this could help people. I posted pics of before and after, they’re several posts back. I would say it was moderate. It was mostly nodules and pustules along my cheekbones and jawline with some smaller whiteheads on my forehead. I found out about magnesium oil as a supplement years ago. Using it topically is supposed to be better than taking it orally for absorbtion. But the thing is, it’s not actually an oil at all, it’s a type of saltwater. It’s just magnesium chloride in water. My skin was so bad a few months ago I figured what the heck and I sprayed it on my face. Within like 2 days I noticed all the hidden little ones were surfacing as small white heads. The purging did get pretty bad, but now the purging is long gone mad my skin is almost perfect! I found out that sweet orange oil is a great antiseptic so I added like 20 drops into the bottle of magnesium oil. It smells AMAZING! It’s the consistency of water so I use it like a toner. I pour like a 1/2 teaspoon maybe less in the palm of my hand, and then rub it all over my face and that’s it. I only wash my face once a day at night but I use the mag oil morning and night. My skin has done a complete 180!!! So I just took these like 2 min ago. My skin isn’t 100% yet because the hyperpigmentation has to continue fading, but I mean it’s amazing compared to what it was. Look back at the before pictures I posted, it’s crazy!

    Ok, I’m not sure how long it’s been now, this is probably like week 8. Just wanted to say my skin is nearing perfection. Those first pics were like a 2, the last pics were like a 6, and I’d say my skin now is like 8.5. It’s really amazing. I’ll try to post pics tomorrow

    I give up.

    I started using magnesium oil mixed with sweet orange oil topically about 2 months ago. My skin has gone from like a 1 to 8.5 in 2 months. I’m 32 and have tried everything imaginable over the past 17/18 years. My skin is almost perfect now.

    Still amazing progress!!! It’s been 5 weeks now, I think and my skin is doing fabulous!! I’ll post pictures over the next day or two. Please try this! It’s so easy and simple. My skincare routine has become so simple and easy. Morning: splash face with water and then use magnesium/orange oil Evening: wash face with Burt’s bees face wash and then use magnesium/orange oil. That’s it! And it’s WORKING!!!!

    Ok, so this is the worst of the purge about 6-7 days after I started. Pretty bad And this is today, day 24 or using just magnesium oil with sweet orange oil. As you can see, SIGNIFICANT improvement. So I’m just gonna stick with this. I mean, it’s been steady improvement since the purge ended about 2 weeks ago so I don’t see why the improvement would stop. I expect to have perfect skin soon, like in the next two weeks. I’ll keep updating!! Oh! I should add this is the progress even with 2 setbacks! The first, I tried to add another ingredient to the mag/orange oil combo 3 days ago and my skin did not like it. I saw immediate halt in improvement and I started seeing some clogged pores. So I went back to just mag/orange oil. The second, my period started today. SO pretty amazing that my skin looks this good despite those two things.

    Ok so it’s like day 20 and my skin is just SOOOOO much better...like it’s almost totally clear. There’s the hyper pigmentation but that’s steadily fading too. I’m planning on posting pictures tomorrow!!

    All I can say is, wow...just wow...day 15 with shockingly amazing results. I’m STILL not going to trust it til it’s been 30 days. I feel like some products or routines make a huge improvement for like 2 weeks and then it stops working. But I’m telling you, this just feels different. Plus it’s super good for you anyway, you can always use more magnesium.

    Magnesium Oil is working!!

    Alrighty I think I’m really excited about posting progress pictures! Im gonna post on Monday! I’m only going to post, though, if there’s continued progress. The way things have gone for the past two weeks have me pretty certain this is really working. Oh and in case anyone is wondering, I am one of the many that has “tried everything”. To summerize my 16 year battle: bp combined with erythromycin Worked amazingly for like 6 years. My skin was perfect. But then about 5 years ago I decided I didn’t want to be dependent on prescriptions so I tried going natural. I tried oil cleansing and that was a disaster...absolutely horrible for my skin. Then I tried caveman and my skin went back to being perfect and stayed that way for about 2 years. Then this past year I started breaking out again. I haven’t been able to figure out the cause. But finally, the magnesium oil is the first thing that’s making a real difference. so think I’m going to combine the caveman approach with the magnesium oil. My routine is/will be: AM: splash face with water and then use a few sprays of magnesium oil PM: splash face with water and use a few sprays of magnesium oil. I only use a cleanser on the days I wear makeup (which right now is almost daily) but as my skin clears, I can wear less makeup so I’ll be washing less. But my routine is so simple right now and it’s really working so far!
