Healthy Skin Tip: Believe it or not, most bar soaps you use in the bath or shower wreak havoc on your skin. They're far too harsh to be using if you have sensitive skin, so always make sure that you're using soap specifically formulated for sensitive skin. With all the options out there today, it doesn't cost much to get a special brand.
I basically found the product that makes my face matte ALL DAY LONG. I highly recommend using it for people with extremely oily skin!
Milk of Magnesia (aka Magnesium Hydroxide) is commonly found in the laxative and antacid aisle of your local pharmacy. It’s also a great topical treatment for the skin!
MoM can be applied daily as a “tonic drying to powder” to absorb oil and cut sweat and shine on your skin, leaving you with a matte finish. This can also act as a primer for your makeup so your eyeshadows, blushes etc can stay smooth on your face and not clump or bleed from facial oils.
Long-term, Mom helps to clear the skin of acne:
First, Magnesium (Mg2+) is anti-inflammatory and has a calming effect on the skin and body, decreasing stress-related oil-production.
Secondly, the alkaline hydroxide ions (OH-) neutralize the acidic environment on your skin, preventing the acid-loving, oil-loving bacteria from thriving in your pores and creating new pimples.
Magnesium can be absorbed through the skin; DON’T USE THIS if you have kidney problems, otherwise you may over time overdose on magnesium!
