I am in my 30s and suffered acne in my teens and 20s and chronic peri oral dermatitis through my 30s. I tried various dermatologists and aestheticians and purchased expensive but completely worthless skin care products. Being uninsured, I paid out of pocket. Over the years, I desperately squandered thousands of dollars in a futile attempt to clear my skin.

2 weeks ago I bought a spray bottle of pure magnesium oil at for around $8. In 2 weeks my skin is clearer than it has been in years. I hope in another 2 weeks it will be completely clear.

At first, this product is very irritating. When the skin is inflamed, it burns like hell to apply it full strength. I suggest if your skin is very irritated, start by diluting it in warm water (preferably filtered) and do a soak or compresses. Also expect for the first few days, your skin may get worse before it gets better. My skin got much worse for 3-4 days, then it began peeling. After about 10 days of using this stuff every night before bed, I saw dramatic improvement. I now apply it full strength directly to the skin with no discomfort. This stuff works. Go out and get it before the pharmaceutical giants get wind of it and lobby the government to pull it from the shelves.

Remember, in The US, health care is about profit, not health. Doctors are simply foot soldiers for corporate drug manufacturers and have no knowledge how to cure most conditions but only to treat symptoms and keep you coming back to buy their drugs. Nature provides most everything we need to heal our bodies. I suggest everyone educate themselves on natural treatments and not fall victim to our criminal healthcare system. I hope this is helpful. Peace.

Hi Whitney, Did you know that you can make your own magnesium oil for cheap? You basically mix magnesium chloride flakes and water, 50/50.

I have recently discovered magnesium as well. It's only been about a week but so far I'm shocked as to how well it makes me sleep. It also gives me this wonderful calm feeling throughout the day. It takes the edge off and I love it!

I started using it hoping it that in a couple of months I would no longer need deodorants (much like others are reporting out there). It will be a few months before I find out, but so far so good!
