I have heard of a variety of “cures” associated with magnets. I’ve seen bracelets marketed to increase blood circulation, mattresses claiming to use magnets to cure ailments ranging from back aches to cancer, magnets here, magnets there. But I have never heard of magnets used to cure wrinkles. They market them AM eye magic as an easy to apply, hypo-allergenic, re-usable, comfortable, convenient for travel, and a “wedding day essential.” They claim proper use of their product will result in a “natural face lift” stimulating blood flow, filling out wrinkles, and creating a radiant skin tone.
Price: $15/20 Am Eye Magnets
So realistically what are the benefits of the AM Eye Magic? Compared to just about every other competitor on the market, they are extremely inexpensive and affordable. $15 for a supply that could, in all likelihood, last you an entire 30 days or longer is almost unheard of in the anti-wrinkle market. Second, it is easily portable and transferable. 20 magnets could in all likelihood fit in a small pocket on your travel bag, and I doubt airport security is going to search your bags for small magnets. As a high paced and competitive society, we are always looking for alternatives; easier, faster alternatives. With no recovery time and easy, at home application, magnets are a novel alternative.
While the idea of non-invasive, easy magnets may be a novel idea, it is not a realistic one. There are no clinical trials or even preliminary trials that even speculate magnets might have a positive effect on anything regarding wrinkles. One of the costs of a high paced and competitive society is that our time is limited. This applies to magnets, because the user of AM Eye Magic are required to “relax” for 30 minutes per day for proper use of these magnets. A good number of us have a hard time finding 30 minutes per day to exercise, to eat right, etc, let alone lay there with magnets on our eyes. Believe it or not, there are side effects associated with this simple idea. First of all, users have to throw the magnets away after a 3 time maximum. Otherwise, you can just imagine all the bacteria that accumulate on those sticky pads, contributing to blemishes. Second, those with pacemakers and other vital machinery are advised not to use this product at all. Magnets, even in their smallest form, could be highly detrimental to the functioning ability of certain machines.
If you see tarot card and angel card readers on a regular basis, AM eye magic may be just the product for you. However, if you are looking for proven results likely to actually happen some time in the near future, you may want to look at other alternatives. It promotes 30 minutes per day of relaxation, which may contribute to reduction in stress and general health benefits. However, the magnets themselves will do nothing for you.
