Milk Of Magnesia: A "NEW" Phenomenon

Hi Guys ! I recently did an interview with a MUA and she expressed that Milk of Magnesia is one of her "can't live without" items . I've been hearing a lot about this Milk of Magnesia from YouTube Beauty Gurus and decided to find out what it really is.

Surprise!! Milk of Magnesia is actually used as an antacid and laxative. Kinda like Pepto Bismol , but it has a milk like texture ( hence the name). What does this have to do with beauty? Alot!

Did you know that Milk of Magnesia is one of the cheapest and safest way of dealing with acne? Because of its alkaline base, it basically nullifies the acid level in the skin which causes acne. This substance was discovered by Charles Phillips in 1880 and is sold in a blue bottle as "Phillips Milk of Magnesia".

Milk of Magnesia is also used in make-up application for people with oily skin. What you'd do is take a small cotton ball and pour a small amount of the substance on it and apply to the affected areas ( most likely your T-zone). A regular application of that will reduce oiliness in your skin significantly. ( Use only a small amount "tres miniscule')

Milk of Magnesia can also be used as a cleanser. Apply a small amount to the affected areas using a cotton ball , then like any other cleanser , wash with warm water or a wet cloth to remove.

There are of course side effects of using this substance. It can cause dryness and it also tightens the skin. While it may be a "fix" for acne, Its not a permanent fix. Because of the named side affects , you would simply use Milk of Magnesia periodically and also moisturize and exfoliate the skin regularly.

The first time i heard about this "crazy" new tip , it was on the Tyra show. I thought it was crazy as heck and i thought I'd never try this. But you can give it a shot if you have problem skin ( or if you work for long hours and need your make up to stay on all day). Also, i wouldn't recommend using all the flavours on your skin , stick to the original. Please do your own research before trying this.
