Quick Tip Home Remedy: Milk of Magnesia for Oily Skin


With spring well underway and summer less than a breath away, I had to ditch my regular primer for Milk of Magnesia (yea I said it) Milk of Magnesia.  Oily skin + summer usually means double trouble for me, however I found a cheap and quick solution that works.

Why It Works 

Milk Magnesia is a popular over the counter laxative.  The active ingredients, Magnesium Hydroxide and Sodium hypochlorite draw water into the intestines to encourage bowel movement.  The properties in Milk Maganesia make it effective in combating excess oils and tightening the skin.

* I use this as a primer before applying makeup and may mist my face with rosewater if my skin feels a little tight.  Overall I find this remedy to be effective and cost efficient and suggest it to those with oily skin.
