A few months ago I discovered a great product to help get rid of the midday shine I usually get every day- Milk of Magnesia-it may sound crazy that a product used for gastrointestinal problems could do anything for your skin but, it really does work!
I first heard about it on the Long Haircare Forum and then I saw a few videos about it on Youtube. I started using it and it has truly kept the oil slick at bay! After searching for years for something that would help my skin look matte all day, I am beyond ecstatic about finding out about the wonders of this product.
How I use it:
1. I wash my face with a very gently cleanser (right now it's Cetaphil), or I do the oil cleansing method.
2. I pat dry my face, then use a cotton ball dipped in the Milk of Magnesia and apply a thin layer all over my face.
3. I let it dry and then apply my makeup for the day. (Milk of Magnesia is also a great makeup primer!)
Have you tried Milk of Magnesia as a skin product? What do you currently use for that matte look?
