Healthy Skin Tip: As tempting as it may be, do not pop pimples. By popping pimples, you are pushing infected material deeper into the skin which causes swelling, redness and possible scarring. Instead, you can mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a teaspoon of water at night and apply it to the pimple.
Please watch: “WARNING. YOU’RE BEING LIED TO.”
Oily skin – the bane of my life for most of my childhood up until i was about 30.
Dealing with oily skin can be tricky but it can be controlled.
I know people don’t always agree but stopping overloading the skin with excess moisturisers can go a long way to stopping this. Oily skin has its own moisture – and lots of it – so adding more isn’t necessary.
If you want to moisturise your skin – use serums as these are less emollient.
Milk of magnesium is great for controlling oily skin. Worn as a face mask, rinsed off – can stop oily skin for hours and hours and hours. For VERY oily skin it can be left on, then foundation applied over.
BE WARNED – milk of magnesium can be drying – so you don’t want to go too far with this – let you skin be your guide.
I found that many dermatologist also recommend milk of magnesium for controlling oily skin 🙂
And lots of shine control products also have this in the ingredient list.
