Those body builders soak in epsom salt baths the night before they show off their muscles and then oil up their bodies, so the epsom salt does get into your skin.
Take care of your self because you need it and deserve it.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that works with calcium and phosphorus and all minerals for the necessary processes in your body.
Nobody is telling you to take an epsom salt bath. Talk to your doctor or midwife and decide what is best for your particular condition.
And good luck.
