I am absolutely hooked on the new Neom Magnesium Body Butter Collection. I have long been aware of the enhanced sleep and wellbeing benefits of magnesium, but this is the first time I have truly been able to take advantage of them. Here’s the lowdown.
Just as a quick insight, I have been finding the bedtime magnesium butters super effective for improving the quality of my sleep. Even if I don’t sleep through the night, I find a greater sense of calm after using the butters and am able to drift back to sleep more easily.
Once I was hooked on the night time variety, I started also using the daytime one on my muscles after exercise, and found great benefits there too for relieving muscle pain. So it has become quite an addiction!
What’s in the Neom Magnesium Body Butter Collection?
There are five different varieties in the range:
- Great Day Magnesium Body Butter (new)
- Complete Bliss Magnesium Body Butter (new)
- Perfect Night’s Sleep Magnesium Body Butter
- Real Luxury Magnesium Body Butter
- Bedtime Hero Magnesium Body Butter
I have completely used up my Perfect Night’s Sleep and am about to finish Great Day, and am just thanking my lucky stars that I have the others to try too.
Why Do We Need Magnesium?
We all need this mineral to maintain our health and well-being. Apparently, up to 80% of us are deficient in it. Magnesium is used for many processes in the body. This includes looking after muscle and nerve function, regulating blood sugar levels and blood pressure, for bone health, the immune system and much more.
Interestingly, it has been proven that magnesium is better absorbed transdermally, via topical application, than being injested. On application, the skin is able to absorb the mineral immediately and deliver into the cells of the body.
The recommended amount for the average woman is 300mg daily and the Neom Magnesium Body Butters contain 75mg of magnesium per 5ml of product. This means a 20ml daily application should do the trick.
When to Use Them
I have been splitting this between applying Great Day after a Peloton session during the day, and then using a sleepy one (eg. Perfect Night’s Sleep) at bedtime.
The different varieties have different therapeutic benenfits and Great Day is very refreshing and reviving with mood-boosting mint and mandarin. Mint, by the way, has also been proven to enhance absorption of magnesium – a fun fact I discovered whilst researching this really interesting topic.
I have been applying Great Day to my leg muscles post exercise, and then Perfect Night’s Sleep to my (still aching) legs, and also the upper arms and shoulders, in order that I can aslo capitalise on the therapeutic benefits of the Lavender. I have avoided my chest area, as the formula is very rich and caused a teeny bit of congestion – just something to note.
The Body Butters have a luxurious creamy texture. The formula contains a blend of oils like Shea Butter, Coconut oil and Mango Seed Butter. They work to nourish and soften the skin, alongside the all-important magnesium.
They are such a brilliant addition to my bodycare and wellbeing routine, particularly as I have started exercising, and also because I was really struggling to sleep with so many crazy thoughts during these extraordinary lockdown days.
If you haven’t been getting the sleep you need, I highly recommend you checking them out.
